the stone itself is not considered that expensive? it's the shipping right? 10kg stone?
A terracotta stone is cheap, Notturno Italiano paid 5€ for his: il biscotto di sorrento è l'unico?
Vespa72's mods are simply on another level to me.
Yeah, but in my opinion you don't need thermostats or fancy pids, with a less conductive stone you don't have to monitor the temperature, no more burned bottom !
by the way, can you cook many pies without the oven melting down? like if there's a pizza party and you need to make 15 pies, can you just keep going or do you have to wait a long time between each bakes? if the oven's wires have all been changed to high heat resistant ones there's no problem with continuous baking?
With the oven well insulated and with heat resistant wires there is no problem to bake a lot of pies.
Today I went to another Used Building Materials shop and luckily I found what i was looking for !
An old hand pressed terracotta slab, 30x30x2cm
judging by the color, it has not been fired too high
I'll have to mod the oven again, the stone is too close from the heating element (1 inch )
