Electric Brick Oven

The idea for this oven came from an annealing oven that we built.

The oven that we're building in our converted garden shed uses a 3000 watt element to heat the bricks
to baking temperature (450 - 500 deg. F). The oven element costs about $20.00 and is available at any
hardware store.

The oven is well insulated. Once it gets up to temperature, the power is shut off, and it is left to sit for a while
and "soak" in order to equalize the temperature. The oven hearth dimensions are 20" X 32", and we're aiming
for about 3 loads of bread per "charge" of heat, about 30 - 40 loaves if the bread is in pans.

Here's a sketch of the firebrick layout: (not shown is the insulation or the ceiling slab, which we will precast
from castable refractory:

We're posting construction photos, taken with a Kodak DC 50 digital camera, and a description of the process as we
go along. To get there, click
