Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

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.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

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

  • Knocking on heaven's door...

    With the oven curing i have had a go at cutting out a door from an old piece of steel i had laying around, its around 7mm thick.

    See images here... still working on the handles;

    I really like the look of this material... but when cooking with the door closed (bread / roasts etc) does this door need vents holes in it i wonder? How will the fire breathe with no holes or will it suck enough in through the gaps?

    regards

    You'll want some decent sized vent holes and maybe even some way to close them to control the fire. At least that is what I am planning to do. I haven't built my door yet (still using a piece of cement board) and I have to prop it open or remove it altogether to keep a small roasting fire alive.

      7mm!!? At least it will stop your wife from taking a peak inside the oven when the door is in place.....

        No holes in your door if you're baking or stabilizing your oven, its counter productive. Try to seal the gaps around your door if you plan on cooking for multiplies days.
