Hi Tommy,

How is your oven cooking? I hope it's been a lot of fun.

It doesn't happen often, but occasionally a floor will slowly wear down and get pitted. Keep an eye on it, and if it starts to get in the way of cooking, send me an email and we will send you a replacement piece. It isn't difficult to do the swap.

Let me know how it goes.

Our regards to the Godfather of the Forno Bravo. It is great to see that we may reap the rewards of such fascination. James, we should honor the trust he has with you and be glad you may share with us in the states.

On a different subject, as with any oven and cooking pizza's, my landing is starting to show the effects of a few dropped ingredients and outdoor weather. Is there a way to clean the landing safely without damaging it?

Hi Tommy,

It isn't difficult, so keep an eye on it for now -- and we'll see where it goes. Meanwhile, enjoy!

What is your landing made of? I just finished polishing the concrete on mine today, then hit it with a brick that I use to prop the oven door. Dinged the heck out of it.

Re: cas a 100 floor
George.....I have two landings. The external one is made from granite and the more internal one is the one which comes with the oven I purchased from Forno Bravo (Casa 100). The one I was referrring to is the internal one. I was just hoping there was a way to clean it safely.

James, I would like to add some information which is mentioned in this thread. My oven is performing amazingly well. It is firing up nicely and it is amazing how it is retaining its heat. The only issue I see is the pitting of the floor as mentioned by "tommy5". Is this something that will have to be addressed one day, or is it more of a comestic issue.

Re: cas a 100 floor
It shouldn't get in the way of your cooking -- so I guess you could call it cosmetic. I've seen it before, and have basically not worried about it. If it becomes an issue, just give us a call. Otherwise, keep cooking.

I'm really pleased to hear that you are enjoying your oven. It's remarkable how well these guys heat up and cook.

Re: cas a 100 floor
Just a note. I've got a firebrick floor and it has pitted very quickly, though I sanded it after installation. It still works like a champ.
