Default Usefull WFO oven tools

Gudday
Found at Bunnings of all places.. just one of those cheapies hanging of a shelf

Usefull WFO oven tools-ash-scoop.jpg

What a find, not to wide....perfect for dumping hot ash in a 20 ltr tin bucket. Handle long enough to keep you hands away from the burnie bits. Good shovel shape, turned up sides. At $5 each I brought 3... recon if they wear out I'll have a spare then one to give away to a mate

Regards Dave

I thought everything cost more in Australia but I was wrong. Bought something similar at our big box hardware store in the US for four times the price. You are right, great for ash removal.

I had a shovel from Bunnies that was very similar, the lift and angle of the handle made it useless at the back of the oven, which is where all the ash is.

If it works.... its never dumb. Ive never thought about about removing ash that way before.... cuts down the amount of tool clutter now that I think about it that way.

I use a similar shovel which is smaller, heavier gauge metal and more expensive. I found that the angle between the handle and the shovel mouth was to big for convenient use, it needs to be flatter. I had a look at the item you mentioned. You may be able to alter the angle by bending it. Also it will work better if you can curve the leading edge instead of it being flat so that it can fit against the curve of the dome perimeter, if you have a dome. You also need a longer handle.

I would have thought a hoe or variation of a hoe would be ideal fro removing ash
