10 hours??!! Is there a ton of mass or no insulation or something?

After 10 hours, the warmth is barely noticeable to the touch on the outside.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

That would be a good sign, does that oven have a lot of mass?

Edit: Just read the user guide and looks like standard mass with standard insulation.

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.

It's the "extra insulation" model (120cmID/160cmOD). I don't think they actually make the "standard insulation" model. It weighed in at bit over 4200lbs.

I saw standard and extra insulation marked on drawings but that was for the Combo oven and not the Classico user guide. The dimensions are identical looking at both.

With 40cm between the id and od you probably have 8"-10" of insulation depending on your mass and shell thickness... Not too shabby.

I've seen the ovens in commercial use several times at Giulio Adriani's various restaurants in NYC, and they do their job very well. If I were to open a place, I'd be completely comfortable using the oven.
