My Stefano Ferrara Oven Has arrived.
« on: September 11, 2012, 01:37:09 PM »
Finally arrived after the long months of waiting. We are still in the beginning phases of construction but its one less thing to worry about. The pictures are too big in size so I have just URL'ed them.

Stefano and Francesca were a pleasure to work with. You can tell they really love what they do.

Initial firing is still a few weeks away, but we are so excited!

Closing off the cooking area. The dome shape is starting to appear.

All finished up and ready to ship!

Crappy cell phone pic I took of it finally on the ground here. I will have to post some more pics during construction and when the oven is actually in place rather than just in the middle of an unfinished restaurant.

Worth every penny I bet!  This will be the heart and soul forever of your establishment, so why go cheap?
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

Its not about going cheap or going expensive. Its about the quality of product that we aim to give our customers. To make the best, we need the best.

I will soon be in the market for a wfo and want the best. I assume you have had great success in the past with this brand/model of oven, no?

x2.

Stefano Ferrara and Forno Napoletana should be on everyone's short list of ovens to consider when opening a WFO pizza joint.

Best of luck the rest of the way.--K

Stefano Ferrara mobile oven is one of the more affordable Neapolitan-made commercial ovens compared to others like Forno Napoletano, Marra Forni, etc. and it has the UL certifications required unless you want it built on-site, then, it will cost you at least $30-40k.  There is a company in San Francisco that keeps these ovens in stock.  Of course, some members here will argue that the best oven for Neapolitan pizza is the Forno Napoletano.  

Nice-looking oven, btw.  I can't wait to try your pies.

 :-D. That's the CT rate though.

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
