Terraforno Oven Design

terraforno oval oven design

We use a slight oval design vs a round oven because the oval shape provides more cooking space, optimal heating & airflow

Note: We recommend Maggiore DIY Oven customers build a minimum 3" sub-floor that the oven will be built on (this is included in the pre-built models).
Oven sub-floors are part of good Wood-Fired Oven designs; they work with the oven floor to deliver consistent temperatures in your oven, especially over time.

maggiore DIY Oven Installation

The Maggiore Oven is designed/built just like the best Italian Neapolitan Wood-Fired Ovens on the market today.

When building the Maggiore DIY Oven we highly recommend that a 3″ refractory sub-floor is built.  THIS a pad on which the oven will sit.  We include this in our pre-built ovens because the sub-floor with the oven floor forms a dense thermal mass that in conjunction with the 6″ thick walls/dome, will provide even heat for many hours of consistent cooking.
