Hello Forno Bravo Family,

High Season at Forno Bravo seems to start earlier each year! The team is busy in preparation mode for our annual visit to the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas, developing new products, and helping customers find the perfect oven for their homes and restaurants. It is a wonderful whirlwind to be a part of. So, while the winter weather continues, we know spring is right around the corner, and will bring with it many beautiful oven builds!

Who is Forno Bravo? Enjoy Our New Overview Video

We love introducing people to the Forno Bravo family of products and to our awesome customers. Our ovens can be used in so many different ways that you have to see it to believe it, so, we put together a fun little video to do just that! Watch it and see if we included a photo of your oven in the mix. (We tried to use as many as we could from those submitted by our friends and customers around the country!)

Planning your Spring Build with a Casa2G Modular Pizza Oven Kit

Planning is a big part of any pizza oven build. To make it easier, we’ve designed the Casa2G pizza oven kit and steel Cucina stand to offer many benefits for residential builders.

For example, our kits make DIY builds easier, faster, and more durable than starting completely from scratch. They are less expensive than purchasing an oven of the same size that we assemble and finish for you. They also allow for seamless integration into an outdoor kitchen design with completely flexible finish options.

To help you imagine your cooking/entertaining space, and to pick the right oven or oven kit for your needs, Forno Bravo has created several different resources. 
  • First, you can check out our Selection Wizard to quickly narrow down the choices from our wide stable of ovens to fit your goals. 
  • For a deeper dive, we’ve put together a mini-ebook on pizza oven technology, kitchen design, and DIY oven planning in general. Simply CLICK HERE, enter your email, and we’ll shoot the guide over to your inbox. 
  • Check out our Helpful Hints blog for more tips on planning your new pizza oven build. (This is a favorite ‘getting started’ article for many Forno Bravo fans.) 
  • Or call or email our Customer Service team. They’re available to answer any questions and assist you in any way they can to make your build the best ever.
