Ovens direct flame

Also known as cyclic baking ovens, because the process allows the oven to heat and rest at intervals. The combustion occurs in a furnace or open fire to the cooking chamber, which therefore directly receives both the combustion gases and the fire. This explains its great thermal inertia, due to the fact that the material of which the oven is made heats up and stores the calories directly.

Refractory hearth for cooking!

Also makes a more even cooking and adds more effective cooking area, and the oven fits in a smaller space. And last but not least, it makes the oven easier to be used by just one person.

Measures

Because they are custom-built ovens depending on the space available for them, it is necessary to know the final measures in advance. Approximately we can assure that the width is always 1 longer than the hearth’s diameter, the bottom between 1 and 1,5 meters longer than the hearth’s diameter, and the total height between 2,6 and 3 meters tall. It is important to make sure that the floor holds up a minimum weight of 3000 kg/m².

Fuel

The fuel to be used is exclusively firewood or dry wood (beech, oak, olive, etc.). Do not use any other fuel as it may damage the oven.
