Curing the Oven

What is it? Once the build of the oven is done the last step in our process is curing the oven. This step is the most most vital and important part of our process – something we pride ourselves on ensuring is carried out correctly for long term sustainability.

Why is important? Wood ovens hold a lot moisture after being built. The curing process is very important as, when done properly, strengthens the quality of the dome. When in use, if the oven gets too hot too fast, any moisture within the dome will try and escape. This looks like steam penetrating the walls of the dome which can result in the oven dome cracking. Curing the oven is an integral part of Forno Alfresco’s oven build, and something we pride ourselves on.

Feel free to speak to one of the Forno Alfresco team members to explain the curing process further.
