New arrival: Fontana Maestro
Maestro: small but mighty!
Fontana Forni has a new addition to its product family. Maestro is the name of the little one with the big inner values. It is a portable pizza oven with gas operation. It cuts a fine figure everywhere, on the balcony, the terrace and even when camping. To bake the perfect pizza with the Maestro, all you need is a gas bottle and then you're ready to go. The Maestro heats up to over 400 degrees. The pizza can then be baked in two and a half minutes with the door closed. Two pizzas fit next to each other. If it is used for a longer period of time and several pizzas are baked, it settles between 340 and 400 degrees. This makes it an absolute top model in its class. Even over a longer period of time, such as a cosy evening with friends, the Maestro keeps the heat so that a delicious dessert can also be cooked in the oven.
The Maestro can do more than pizza. Basically, it is an all-rounder. The temperature can be regulated so that dishes that require less heat, such as casseroles, antipasti, vegetables or desserts, can also be prepared in it. It is also a great outdoor addition to an electric household oven. Sometimes you don't want the food smells in your house or flat. With the regulator for the gas flame, it's a breeze to find the right temperature. On the outside, the oven gets about 60 degrees at an internal temperature of 400 degrees. The excellent insulation made of ceramic fibre and the cladding made of high-quality painted steel make the Maestro superior to its competitors in this feature as well; they get hot on the outside. The 2cm thick fireclay bricks that fill the bottom of the Maestro are Made in Italy, food safe and guaranteed to be free of toxins, like some products from the Far East. The fireclay stores the heat and releases it constantly. The base of the pizza also becomes crispy and crunchy without burning.
The Maestro is available in two sizes: 40 cm x 60 cm and 60 cm x 60 cm. For our videos, we used the larger version. In order to be able to give precise information about the small high performer, we familiarised ourselves with it during a team lunch break. It heated up quickly, after about 35 minutes it had reached 350 degrees, the pizza had a decent crust thanks to the high temperature, and the base looked good. We are thrilled and can highly recommend this great oven to all those who are looking for an excellent entry-level model and to those for whom it is important to be mobile and to have good quality.
Tip for baking pizza in the Maestro
We recommend rotating the oven, i.e. place the first pizza on the right side of the stone. If you open the oven to rotate the first pizza, place the second pizza to the left and the third pizza to the right. In this way, we optimise the heat distribution of the firebrick, as a pizza always brings cold into the oven.
For personal advice, please call us at 06051 67777. By appointment, you can also admire the Maestro in our showroom and receive advice.

The plaster can also be covered with natural stones, tiles or mosaic and gives off a maximum temperature of 45 degrees to the outside. Gladly available in other colors on request. Innovation in beautiful detail, the stone baking oven Valoriani Indirect: With its indirect heating of the baking surface, the Valoriani oven is unparalleled. The patented process allows particularly gentle and uniform baking through radiant heat. The fire in the combustion chamber heats the fireclay bricks of the baking surface and is fed from behind, where it surrounds the entire baking chamber. It takes about 30 minutes to heat up to 300 degrees. Two pizzas can be baked simultaneously in a few minutes. The exhaust gases are led to the front to the adjustable smoke outlet. The advantages of the innovative technology: the entire baking surface can be used and continuous baking is possible. The Valoriani oven can be installed both indoors and outdoors. Installation indoors and outdoors: Indoors, the Valoriani Indirect can be integrated into the elements of a kitchen to complement the stove, as well as installed next to the fireplace or in the party room. Outside, it finds its place next to the barbecue, on the terrace or in the garden. But then it must be protected from the weather. As a pre-assembled stove The pre-assembled stove is screwed and protected from the weather with a triple ceramic fiber insulation (8 cm) and a 2 mm thick metal cladding. This is powder-coated or painted in a Tuscany red-brown heat-resistant by master craftsmen and ensures a long life even outdoors. The stove is located on a 5 mm thick metal plate with 4 metal feet, each 5 cm high. Thus, this stove can be moved or transported at any time. The lower firebricks of the firing chamber are additionally provided with a metal bracing to ensure a perfect fire distribution and to guarantee a stability of the bottom plates. The pre-assembled model is equipped with thermometer, ash box, smoke connection and hardwood handles. Ideal for your private party The model is perfectly sized even for larger families and small parties. With a baking time of 3 - 4 minutes per pizza depending on temperature, toppings and firing, all guests can be satisfied. For bread baking, the lower firing chamber can also be swept out in the 2nd baking cycle and used for baking. The oven retains heat long enough to have double capacity at the end of pizza baking. The details for home use: Important for customers is the compact size of the model: after cladding and insulation, they get about external dimensions of 70-80 by 80cm deep. The flue through the baking chamber provides the traditional taste. The baking chamber is less contaminated with soot particles or ash in relation to a directly fired model. The compact dimensions make the Valoriani Indirect ideal for terraces, balconies or even small gardens. Pizza they can bake directly on the fireclay and alternatively on trays, the important thing is to get a feel for the oven. The floor temperatures are always slightly higher than dome ovens, this should be taken into account to achieve the best results for your taste. If the bottom temperature is too high, we recommend to position the embers in the back of the ember chamber about 20 minutes before cooking the pizza. Delicious is also cooking and simmering vegetables, pasta or meat in this wood-fired oven. This is possible in standard casserole dishes at any time and they get crispy and juicy food. We wish you good appetite A small baking instruction model "Valoriani I" It is ideal to heat the oven for at least 1 to 1.5 hours to about 280-300 degrees. If you want to bake directly on the fireclay, ideally after lighting the embers should be pushed back to the last third, so that the bottom temperature is not too hot. If you bake on trays, this is not necessary, because they reduce the temperature slightly. You should add 1 - 2 small pieces of wood every 15-20 minutes so that the oven settles at a minimum of 250 degrees. Once the pizza is inserted, the oven cavity should be closed again to keep the heat in the oven. Thin pizzas and not too many toppings are ideal. Then you will achieve a delicious and crispy pizza directly on the bottom in about 3-5 minutes of baking. If they want to bake bread in the second pass, remove the embers completely and leave the oven open for 10 minutes so that some heat escapes. Then put the bread in and close the oven for 30-40 minutes. It is also ideal to close the smoke control. We wish good apetite!
