Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Cracks

    I followed the advise on curing very carefully and last night decided that it was time to crank it up a bit. Now I have cracks!
    The largest is about 1.5mm wide and had a small amount of smoke coming out of it. The rest are hairline and don't seem to go all the way through.
    What do I do now? Should I cut out as much as the mortar as I can on the big crack and refill it?
    The cracks closed up a lot as the oven cooled but the big one is still visible. Note that I haven't put the insulation on yet.

    cover it up and call it good. Following the curing process has never been a guaranty that cracks will not happen. If you are only seeing 1.5mm cracks consider yourself lucky, trust me, there have been far worse.

      Yep. What Les said. Insulate and press on.

        Agreed. Ignore them. They don't matter.
