Valoriani FVR stone oven Friends of the family - the ovens of the FVR series: Ingeniously simple - simply ingenious. The ovens of the FVR series fascinate with their variety and function - just as their inventor Silvio Valoriani intended more than 50 years ago. The stoves, which are available in an assembly set, come in five different sizes. They meet all needs, whether for the smaller or larger family. The baking surface is made of refractory "white" fireclay with a thickness of five centimetres. Depending on the size of the oven, it is composed of different elements. The special feature of the "white" surface is its ability to store heat optimally. Because of its high aluminium content, it is more resistant to heat and keeps it longer. The production with a press also results in a perfectly even surface. The stone ovens of the FVR series are traditionally fired with wood. This not only ensures the desired heat in the oven and the perfectly crispy pizzas, but also gives them their inimitable taste. Thanks to the very large combustion and baking chamber, you can also use larger logs in the stone oven without any problems and thus save yourself a lot of work during preparation. In addition, the large opening provides very good and easy access to push the wood aside and clean the baking surface. The metal door is included and can be equipped with a thermometer as an accessory. A brick arch as well as a smoke connection are available as accessories. Features and components: Self-supporting elements made of refractory mixture form the baking chamber of the oven. A shaped plate of refractory cotto serves as a working and storage surface in front of the opening. Removable metal flap Assembly instructions, useful hints for maintenance The FVR model is available in the following internal dimensions: 80 cm, 100 cm, 110 cm, 120 cm, 110 × 160 cm and 110 cm with large opening (Bocca Larga). The base of the oven should always be 40cm larger than the diameter of the oven itself (for example, with an FVR 100cm diameter, the base should be at least 140cm in diameter). The working height of the oven varies between 110 - 120cm.Valoriani FVR stone oven - quality in modern form The FVR series of the manufacturer Valoriani was developed specifically for families and offers them the highest possible quality in combination with a simple and uncomplicated assembly and operation.
