Casa2G or Premio2G
 
Hi All,

I have finally decided to go with the modular Forno but need help with making a decision on which Forno. Iíve been looking at the Casa2G100 and Premio2G100.

Iíve read what the differences are between the two but like to hear from all of you.
(for example: how well does the Casa2g retain its heat etc.)

I plan on mainly making pizza's and occasionally bread. May even cook other stuff in there. (Turkey, wings etc.)

Any responses would be greatly appreciated, if there is a discussion regarding this please let me know.

This forum is great and very well run!!

Thanks
Peter

I believe the difference is just the size options (and a couple of adders). They both will perform very well. Call FB and let them know your intent. If it was my wallet (and I didn't want to build from scratch), I would go with the Casa...

Re: Casa2G or Premio2G
 
I helped install a Casa 2G90 a couple of years ago and was really impressed with how well it went together and how soon we were using it. I've done pizza, bread, ribs, whole chickens, steaks (Tuscan grill), lobster, shrimp, ...well basically everything we wanted to cook. My only comments are that the oven really heats up fast and retains heat extremely well. In fact, I really have to watch food closely because with the "lower ceilings" of a pizza oven and the heat retention, I can really put some char on almost anything if I pay too much attention to my beer...

I suspect (as Les stated earlier in this thread) you'll be happy with either of the ovens. If I was going to make the choice, I'd go with the Premio 2G simply because I like the insulated door and more mass/insulation to retain heat. Makes it more feasible to have pizza at night and make bread the next day... From what I've learned having built my own 39" oven and having weekly bakes with the neighbors and my friends...you are really going to enjoy having the expanded capabilities of the higher end oven and even though it's more expensive...unless you're going to build from scratch, I think the Premio is worth its price.

thanks for the replies,


My first choice was to actually build the Pompeii Forno but do to time constraints I'm leaning towards either of the Casa2g and Premio2g. (more Premio2g) i know that the Premio2G has more mass (1 inch extra) but if i was to go with the Casa2g and buy extra Ceramic Blanket etc. would that make it perform more like the Premio2g? other then the insulated door.(i do like the insulated door that comes with the Premio2G.)

i'm currently in the process of building the stand now, it will be large enough to support either modular forno.

thanks again
Peter

I'm going through the same decision process. 36" or 40" Casa2G or 40" Premio? The 36" casa will probably meets my requirements, but the thought of its superior insulation and door has me leaning toward the 40" Premio. I don't mind spending little more in the near term for a superior product over time. My only question is how much longer will it take to heat the Premio, and how much more wood will I burn over the course of a year. Anyone care to comment?

According to the spec sheet they claim that the heat up difference is around 10 minutes more for the Premio 40 vs Casa 40.
I'm thinking it may be long then that.
