  • 60'' internal oven

    Hi am new to your forum and have been reading a number of posts and have found a few others wanting a larger oven, it may be to cook a lager number of dishes or 5 12" 4 minute thicker pizzas at one time (you may have one person dedicated to operation of the oven ) or simply a larger number of bead loafs after cooling down.
    I also am looking to open a wood fire pizza restaurant and using the oven to cook the entire menu as do many others in Victoria.
    Yes I may need two oven but am looking for a bigger oven 60" or larger can any one help with plans.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: 60'' internal oven

    Welcome, certainly the large oven topic has been discussed here a fair amount, please search the forum for details. The short of it is that when you get over two - three pizzas at a time you really need a dedicated oven manager to control the fire (wood) as well as keep the pizza moving. For that to be efficient, you really need a dedicated pizza assembler as well. A larger oven will also consume more wood. All of this may make sense commercially, but hard to make it practical for home use. Keeping my 42" oven working at capacity is a challenge even with 1 or 2 good helpers.

              rougly all i did was converted inches in to centimeters.. then worked backwards.. 42' = 160cm/1.6m..(roughly) every extra inch converts to so many extra.. cm/mm. yea find it is also to convert inches in to millimeters.. then multiply very slowly.

              it took me ages but i got there.. if you put your mind to it you can do anything..

              i would attach what i have i done but it exceeds the file size..
              hope dosent confuse you too much feel free to ask me more

                              i am building a 60 " oven and am about 2 weeks from completing the build .
                              just down load the plan and adjust the size to suite 60"' floo.r
                              all so you need to place a re-moveable floor if your using brick so dont build the wall on top of floor as you will have a have to replace it@ some point
