I have'nt checked in for a long time, but I have found a tool for slicing fresh mozzarella. Put as large a piece of mozzarella that will fit in a hard boiled egg slicer and press the wires down and you will have very nice, evenly sliced cheese. It woks like a CHARM !!
Good luck,
Jack

I have been using a short-handled device used to remove the lid of a cast iron pot to add, move and remove things inside my oven. Nice design with a hook and a coiled wire handle. Available at good "outdoor" shops here in Oz. Will post a pic shortly.

Since I've built my oven, I've discovered Japanese Ironware, some hand hammered and others casted(pots, boilers, pans). All of my neighbors have them and none of them are using them, and the gladly give them away.

I get a lot of use from my "pig tail" meat turning hook. Great for raising lids, cooking steaks, moving pots etc. Barbecue supply places have them

Here in Arizona, we call those Conchos or Hookers. Used a lot for dutch oven cooking!

Anyone near the Anaheim area that knows where to get Terracotta pans, and other high temp items (pots, etc) for the forno oven?? I'm heading down to LA in 2 weeks and would like to purchase some to take back to Canada. Thanks

Forno Gator, Have you used a Terracotta pan in your oven yet? I have a number of them and they all recommend starting them out in a cold oven. So I would be interested to know if any one else has used them. I worry about them shattering.

I use cast iron myself. I went to a local flea market last weekend and picked up 4 new to me pans. Thanks

Forno Gator, look at "Tuesday morning" for ceramic cooking pans. They are not always a bargain but sometimes you'll find a really good deal on these here.

We have not used the Forno yet but are looking forward to it. The reason is the the Forno Oven is a work in progress. The foundation and walls are built and the rest of it should be finished relatively soon provided my "Italian Mason" shows up to finish it. We had four, four foot deep pilings put under the Pad to prevent frost heave.... this is required for our cold winters otherwise the walls will shift and wreck the walls.

We routinely use pottery type pans in our gas stove for things like baking Asparagus with olive oil and use Le Creuset Pots on and in our gas oven. The Le Crueset Pots are rated for 500 deg. F. (I think the handles will melt if over 500), but a little too expensive to try out in the Forno Oven, and we love using pottery type pans for baking veggies etc... so I want to try similar dishes that can take the heat. I'll post with the results of using the Terracotta pans in the oven.
