Pizza Party Pizzone wear questions
« on: July 19, 2020, 06:55:10 PM »
Hey all - I've had my Pizzone for a year and absolutely love it. I have noticed two potential issues though and I'm wondering if anyone knows if these are really things to be concerned about. I was going to message Simone directly but I couldn't seem to add images to private messages.

1) I notice a small ring of rust around where the chimney meets the oven. I think it's originating from the bottom of the chimney. Is there a way to address this easily?

2) One of my Saputo stones cracked in half after my last bake (just noticed it). It's the back left stone, so not one I bake on, and it's a pretty clean crack with no loose bits. Will I be able to order a replacement to the US if I need to?

Pictures of both below.

Thanks!
Dave

I have a red 70x70 and both of these things happened to me. For rust on the chimney and the area you're mentioning, I used heat resistant black spray paint to cover everything.

I have the stock floor and 3 of my bricks have cracked cleanly as well. Hasn't changed anything for me since they are all lengthwise breaks and so the floor is still in place. According to old threads though, people who've had their oven floors collapse have placed steel metal sheets under the broken bricks with some good success.

Doubt Pizza Party would ship you new bricks to the USA based on my recent emails with them. However, it's worth a try.

Thanks Pandasbecats! Do you have a specific spray you'd recommend? Maybe we can convince Pizza Party to do a group shipment to Seattle? :)

Hope you're holding up OK in everything going on here.

I used this paint, which they also sell in Home depot:

Group shipment would be great. Longer chimney, door with glass, flue valve, etc. Been okay, making a lot of pizzas. Hopefully you're doing the same

When mine is not in use, chimney and everything I can fit in, goes inside the oven and gets covered with their cover. Had my Passione a couple years now, no rust at all. No cracks I can see either.

I do the same thing and after more than two years, no signs of rust anywhere on the chimney and no cracks in the Saputo floor.

I also cover mine when it's not in use, but I can't cover it until the next day when it's come down in temp. It does get exposed to rain sometimes in those periods, but in the majority of wet weather it's covered. That's why I've been surprised to see the rust.

What kind of cover are you using? If you're using the one that PP makes, that one doesn't seem to be completely waterproof and may soak through over time. Or maybe you're covering it when it's still slightly wet, trapping moisture underneath.

I would do what Pandasbecats mentioned and give it a couple of coats of high-heat Rustoleum. Get a wire brush and scrape away some of the lose particles first.

It is the PP cover, and living in Seattle I can almost guarantee moisture does get trapped under there. ;)

Great suggestions all. Love this forum.
