I am a beginner (so the most Problems are from my side
) and I have bought the Bollore and had the first test run yesterday without making Pizza, just to see if everything works fine. Installing the burner was no Problem, but I was not able to get high temperatures. When I opened the burner fully, then the temperature rose slowly to 320° Celsius. As the Manual recommends not to use Maximum for more then 20min, I reduced the burner and the temperature dropped to 290°, then I stopped the test. I have attached some Pictures, which Show the color change in the metal. The roof was at the lowest position, which is possible. How does your oven look like, do you also have the changes in color? Did you have any Problems to get to 400-450° Celsius?
Furthermore, I wanted to ask if anybody had issues placing the bricks? Simone was very helpful and the videos show very good what to do, but I spend some time to try to fit them. After multiple attempts I grinded the bricks to get them in place. Not perfect, but I think it should be OK.
What are your experiences?
