Forno Bravo's Infrared Thermometer
 
I just received my Laser guided, Infrared Thermometer from Forno Bravo.

http://www.fornobravo.com/store/Infr...r-p-16155.html

I wanted to let everyone know how pleased I am with this thing! It has adjustable emissivity setting and even better, a metal probe that swings out the bottom and can be inserted in food.

Highly recommended if you are looking for a really fun gadget for cooking and taking surface temps.

Ken, can we ever question the FB store? James does a great job with supplying the store with items of necessity for us. Great choice.

Thanks guys. We try to do our best. It's fun; we're having a rush of accessory orders for Xmas. I've always say that every great hobby has great toys.

I must agree! ;)

I received the Caputo flour yesterday James. Thanks so much.
I can't wait to put it to the test!

If it performs as well as everyone says, I will bet that you have made a Caputo customer for life!

Although, with as big a family as I have, I will probably go for the 50 lb bags!

Thanks Again!

Dave


BTW - very nice thermo !

Thanks for the review Ken. I'm actually in need of a new one already. Seems I mistakenly left my ExTech IR sitting in front of my entry during the period of equalization from raging infurno to pizza temps...melted it pretty good, although it still seems to work (amazing) I don't trust its accuracy.

I like the idea of having a probe as well, mine doesn't.

I can recommend the FB digital scale. It REALLY makes a different in the consistancy of dough. No more cups and teaspoons for me.

James, I hope you have the 50 pounder boxed and ready to go. Once he tries it, he won't go back.

Hi Dave,
We will get you the shipping costs off-line, but I thought I would take the opportunity to describe our strategy on shipping costs. There are some merchants that sell billions of dollars of stuff, and lose a lot of money on shipping (read Amazon.com), some that offer "free" shipping, but really just build the shipping costs into the item price, and others that sell products for "free", or very low prices, and make all their profit on shipping and handling fees.

I think FB is different. We get purchase discounts from our suppliers, and sell our stuff at reasonable prices, and then charge the real cost of shipping to try to break even on shipping and handling.

There are lots of ways of going about it, but I like our model. It's real straight forward.

Dave, how's the arch?

I agree, straight forward is better. You have my vote on that one.

Been a bit too cold and wet here to play with it.
I'm gonna get after it, though, it will have to wait until this weekend.
I think the arch will need some kind of metal framework. I am thinking a 1/4 piece of plate steel. Welded and formed to match the interior arch. I hate to do it...

So I might just try some heatstop and a cut brick shim to get everything really tight and allow forces working at the bottom of the arch to hold it all together.

The mortar is what failed. It fell out and that allowed the brick to come with it.

I shouldn't of cheaped out on the mortar. Next time it will be heatstop or an equivalent for me.

Thanks for asking.

Dave
