WIDE AWAKE OVEN
Our oven is something else.
OUR OVEN: THE HOT PLACE
We built our oven from nearly nine tons of brick, steel, and stone.
We guarantee you've never see an oven quite like this. Our oven runs on wood—no gas, no coal-fired electricity. We get our wood from right down the road, and we designed and built our oven to burn clean and hot. It is modeled after the great Spanish ovens of the late 19th century. Like those ovens, ours is a “white” oven, which means that the fire heats the baking chamber indirectly. And, like those ovens, our baking hearth is a large stone turntable. It's the details—the powerful steam, the pre-heated combustion air, the ceramic secondary combustion chamber, the multiple draft control gates—that make our oven extraordinarily steady and efficient.
Wood-Fired Oven Design, Repair, and Modification
We help bakers consider the many available choices in oven-design, function, and construction, and we work with bakers to modify (or not modify) existing ovens to meet new requirements. Want to talk ovens? Drop us a line.
