Why do we suggest using a heater instead of a small fire? We have discovered that some of our clients have difficulty in controlling the amount of heat that even a small fire produces. We have found that using a heater is more practical and works very well in eliminating trapped moisture.
1. Place a heater at the mouth of the oven; 2. Leave heater on for 72 hours* *Length of time will depend on your local climate.
Minor cracks will appear when you use your oven during a certain period of time. These cracks are very natural and do not affect the functionality and the efficiency of your oven. Curing your oven is the most effective way to eliminate humidity.
If you go through a long period of time without using your oven or your oven has been exposed to a considerable amount of moisture, please note that every now and then you will need to eliminate the moisture out of your oven. The clay with which the oven is built will tend to absorb humidity thus causing unnecessary cracks. We suggest repeating the curing process (read above for additional information)
Soot build up in your oven will cause smoke and compromise the efficiency of your oven. 50% of the heat transfer is compromised with just one tenth of an inch of soot build up. 1) How to clean your oven; 2) Wait for your oven to cool down; 3) Rake the ash to the center of the oven; 4) Use your paddle to remove the ash; 5) Put the ash into a bucket; 6) Repeat until your oven is ash free
