Two gloves measuring 18" long are included. Soft and pliable for an easy grasp but long and thick enough to protect your forearm and hand from the heat.
This log holder just might be the most helpful oven tool in your tool case. It helps with oven fire and assists you with the direction of flame inside the oven cavity.
Why is this important? Because fire direction can take you across the line of quality, between good pizza and GREAT pizza. For truly delicious and crispy pizza crust, flame should curl over the dome of the oven.
As logs tilt on the log holder, and/or the fire is built over it, this solid-steel unit allows better airflow under the fire for a more consistent flame.
Made of solid steel and weighs in around 10#. 19 3/4" long by 10 3/4" wide by 9" tall.
And the cool thing is that it's made in America.

Why a draft door? Sometimes a fire needs a little push. This door feeds a constant air flow to the fire, feeding the flame so it burns more aggressively.
Our draft door has an opening in the bottom of the door to promote positive air flow into your oven chamber, to feed the fire or coals inside your oven. Once the air has heated, it travels along the dome of your oven, and out the front opening, where the door directs the hot exhaust up the flu. All this goes on while the opening to your oven is shielded from letting out too much heat.
It's perfect for quickly burning down coals on the hearth floor while containing the heat inside your oven's chamber. Made of solid steel, 19.5" wide by 12" tall. See the door in action on our FG Video page page.
Frankie's notes: I have been using this door and it saves me 30 minutes on heating time and gives me a hotter oven. Read our customer's review of how the door helped his firing.
An FGpizza special item! Same vacuum as item #5000, and more!. This vacuum is equipped with a 3-foot metal nozzle to reach the back of your woodfired oven. It is perfect for the oven owner who wants to vacuum the ash out of the oven cavity.
Ships in 2 boxes and made in America.
We've had some of our customers with woodfired ovens request a vacuum for their oven - and we have found the one that works. This vacuum was specifically designed to remove ashes from your hearth. WARM OR COLD!
Using a 5' long, fire-resistant hose and a specially designed filtering system for ash, the Ash Vac solves the problem of removing ash from wood burning ovens safely and effectively.
The Cheetah II uses a filter system consisting of two filters. The first filter is flame retardant for precautionary reasons. The second filter traps sub-micron particles (ash) and has a special snap spring assembly allowing for easier cleaning. The Ash-Vac features a 5' flame-resistant hose, 3-gallon capacity container, and a powerful 6-amp motor. Comes with a one year warranty and includes one set of filters. This unit is 20" high, has a 1-1/4" diameter hose opening, and holds up to 3 gallons of ash.
• Patented double filter system
• Comes complete with a FIRE RETARDANT PRIMARY FILTER.
• Cleaning rod and pliable filters allow cleaning without removing the lid.
• 5 ft. FLAME RETARDANT HOSE allows ash to pass through the hose to the canister without damage to the hose.
• Designed for conventional stoves and fireplaces as well as pellet and corn burning stoves.

There are lots of thermometers out there... but this one causes less clutter. Use the Laser to measure the temperature of your oven, then use the probe to measure the temperature of your foods and bread! The Probe folds against the handle, and swings out only when you need it. (Remember, if bread loaves are not cooked fully, they will result in a doughy loaf. I bake my bread to at least 205 degrees.)
Our Laser/Probe combo thermometer quickly and accurately measures surface temperatures and internal meat temperatures for perfect cooking results every time. The Laser targeting feature pinpoints exact temperature without touching the surface of your oven, pan, BBQ or utensil - and the stainless steel Probe is used to take internal temperatures. Also features an easy to read backlit LCD temperature readout.
* Measures temperatures from -76ºf - 932ºf.
* Laser technology measures temperature quickly
* Stainless Steel probe takes temperatures internally
* Easy to read LCD
* Includes two AA batteries
Measurements: 6.75" x 2.75" x 1.5". When probe is extended it's 10.25" long.
You can see this thermometer demonstrated in our Bread Baking video located on the FG Instructional Video's page.
This is the same item as in FG's Al' Forno Package. Dimensions: Length 60.28", Dim 9.46 x 3.94", Weight 1.09 lbs
Frankie G's notes: I personally have used this since the first firing of my oven. The best feature is its light weight and very sturdy aluminum construction. After moving coals and raking an oven, it will cool down pretty quickly. This is the best tool for the money.
You can see this rake demonstrated in our first video about our wood oven: "Frankie G's Woodfired pizza oven" video, located on the FG Instructional Videos page.
Made in Italy

But when one bubble wants to grow big enough to take over the entire pizza... it needs to be tamed.
This is the perfect tool to pop those big bubbles that can form on your pizza while cooking. Check out our FG Video page to watch a video on how it works.
The secret is to "POP" and "drag"...
This simple little tool can be used as a "hook" to retrieve baking pans and trays. It's really useful.
Made in AMERICA of Stainless Steel - about 30 inches long.
Through 272 pages, 182 photographs, and six chapters, you'll learn the history of these fascinating and enduring ovens, follow a typical two-day workshop in detail, then explore the various oven shapes, types and building methods to select your own. A clear, unbiased investigation of oven types does not exist in print--until now. Throughout, myths are dispelled, little-known tips provided and results-oriented methods explained. Far too much mystery has surrounded true artisan baking. Not here.
How about an authentic Neapolitan pizza baked for ninety seconds on a 750 degree hearth? This book shows you how.
From theory to practical, hands-on techniques, from ingredients to equipment, from wild to commercial yeasts, hearth breads to sweet breads, from preparing to firing and baking, you'll gather the information you need to make genuine artisan breads in a wood fired environment--or even in a home oven. This is exactly the kind of detailed look at real hand-made breads that is not available anywhere else. We know, we checked.
This is a book of method, not hundreds of bewildering recipes. As we tell our students, once you master the recipes in Tools Are Made, Born Are Hands, you will have the ability to approach any formula with confidence, whether you have a wood fired oven or not.
Tools Are Made, Born Are Hands is available in pdf format that can be read with Adobe Reader, Adobe Digital Editions (both free programs) or on most book readers. The PDF file will be emailed to you. If you require a copy on CD, please make that notation within FG pizza's checkout system. Once downloaded, this item may not be returned.

The Looftlighter is the perfect unit for starting oven fires and will ignite fires in a matter of seconds.

The Looftlighter does not throw flames, but instead blows a hot airstream at 1256 degrees Fahrenheit. The Looftlighter is fully equipped with a safety casing that cools to the touch within a few seconds after use.
To use, simply plug the Looftlighter's 10-foot cord into a wall socket, and touch the nose of the lighter to your paper. In about 15 seconds sparks will appear. At this point, withdraw the Looftlighter by 3-6 inches and continue heating the same spot. In about 1 minute, you will have a roaring fire and can get back to your food preparation. This tool is a must the wood fired oven chef.
