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.
Made of solid steel and weighs in around 5#. 13" long by 8.75" wide by 8" tall.
The cool thing is that it's made in America.
The head stock is made of strong North American hardwood with sturdy but gentle brass bristles. 24% more bristles than other brushes.
Use this brush to collect ash from between hearth bricks and the smallest crevices of your oven. You will love how gentle and thorough it sweeps and cares for your hearth.
The adjustable head swivels to adjust to ANY oven shape - and sweeps with a FIRM motion. Angle the head straight in-line with the handle, or swivel it perpendicular to sweep and drag ash or push small coals. Head adjusts 360 degrees.
Extremely well constructed and durable. This is the same item as in our Al' Forno Pacchetto! Weighing in at a little more than 1.25 pounds, it has a heavy-duty 48" aluminum handle (which will not get burned from the heat of your oven like wood handles), and it cools off quickly. Want a longer handle? Here's our 60" handled brush
Its flared brass-bristles allow the brush to sweep 8" of space at a time. To see the brush close up, please click HERE
Made in America
We have had many calls from people who have taken classes at the International School of Pizza in San Francisco, CA. Now that they are understand the craft of the Pizzaiolo, they want to use the right tools.
This is one of Tony Gemignani's favorites. If you have the opportunity to eat at Tony's, there's a good chance you will find him turning pizzas with this 47-inch Pallino.
Dimensions: Round perforated Head: 8", Handle Length 47", Weight 1.5 lbs. Replacement handles are available HERE.
See Tony use this peel and our Napoletana peel in this video at his North Beach restaurant.
Made In Italy
This small-headed peel is used to spin and remove pizzas or pans from the oven, or adjust and place logs on the fire. Stainless-steel head, and stainless-steel rod. The smooth-sliding and heat-resistant plastic handle improves accuracy of movement, and allows ease of operation and accuracy.
Dimensions: Round Perforated Head: 9", Handle Length 59", Weight 2.3 lbs. Older pictures represent this tool with round holes, but this is not made any longer. The manufacturer has redesigned this product to sport oblong perforations.
Frankie G's notes: I personally have used this since the first firing of my oven. Note the sliding handles. These peels are fixed with one secure handle at the end, and one sliding handle on the stainless-steel rod. This allows its operator to easily maneuver the peel where needed, without readjusting one's hands. GREAT design! It's not only a necessity, it's really fun to use.

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.
With a wood-fired oven, one needs to work fast. This little life saver can attach to the outside of your oven or wall to hang your pizza peels and utensils.
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, as well. It's really useful.
Made in AMERICA of Stainless Steel - about 30 inches long.
View a video on how these work on our Roasted Bell Pepper Woodfired Appetizer Video page.
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.
The pan pliers will allow you to grip that hot pan right-out-of-the oven without struggling to find a potholder.
This handy gadget is famous for showing up in Chicago-Style deep-dish pizza parlors. Like a pair of pliers they allow you to grab and maneuver the pan with ease.
Pliers are nickel plated steel and weighs 8 ounces.
No more grabbing the pan with a towel or potholder, which includes getting ones thumb on the top-inside of the pan. This tool does it for you.
Our polished carbon steel pan is light-weight, with great heat transferring qualities. Use for paella (of coarse), but also can be used for so much more...
Roast potatoes, vegetables, meats, sauces, shellfish, etc. Get creative and fill with a 1" layer of rock salt and make Frankie G's Clam Casino appetizer for your guests.
Although I love to cook with cast iron, this pan is lighter in weight and transfers heat from your oven floor better. The handles also allow it to be maneuvered much easier within and outside the oven.
If you would like to see this pan in action, check out our
Roasted Cauliflower video on our Woodfired Appetizer Page.

From the Wood-Fired Oven: New and Traditional Techniques for Cooking and Baking with Fire
Frankie G's note: To me, this is the most comprehensive and "complete" book about baking, cooking, and using a woodfired oven. We are really proud to offer this to our FGpizza family...
In the past twenty years, interest in wood-fired ovens has increased dramatically in the United States and abroad, but most books focus on how to bake bread or pizza in an oven. From the Wood-Fired Oven offers many more techniques for home and artisan bakers—from baking bread and making pizza to recipes on how to get as much use as possible out of a single oven firing, from the first live-fire roasting to drying wood for the next fire.
From the Wood-Fired Oven offers a new take on traditional techniques for professional bakers, but is simple enough to inspire any nonprofessional baking enthusiast. Leading baker and instructor Richard Miscovich wants people to use their ovens to fulfill the goal of maximum heat utilization. Readers will find methods and techniques for cooking and baking in a wood-fired oven in the order of the appropriate temperature window. What comes first—pizza, or pastry? Roasted vegetables or a braised pork loin? Clarified butter or beef jerky? In addition to an extensive section of delicious formulas for many types of bread, readers will find chapters on:
Appendices include oven-design recommendations, a sample oven temperature log, Richard's baker's percentages, proper care of a sourdough starter, and more. . . .
If you've ever said... "I wish I would have invented that." Well this one is that idea for Frankie G.
This trivet so convenient and the PERFECT match for our Cast Iron Side Dishes. Just pull your cast iron from the oven, and set it on the trivet. Viola! The trivet magnetically adheres to the cast iron and follows it any where it gets set - to protect your table or counter surface from the scorching heat.
Here's the benefits:
Included is the sliding bead handle, base handle and attaching bolt.
Here's how it works: Your Wood-fired Oven is hot and you've just made a pizza or two for your guests - to take away the hunger. Now for the main coarse, you roast some veggies, make a salad, and rake some coals forward from the back/side of your oven toward the oven opening. Place your Tuscan Grill on top, and grill your steaks, veggies, bread... anything!
It can be used over a campfire or in your fireplace. The Tuscan Grill has plenty of room for grilling vegetables, meats, fish etc. with 196 square inches of cooking surface.
The grill has a height of 4" with the legs, which can be used directly over hot coals. Without the legs you can lay it on a conventional chrome-plated or enamel pan to produce tack-sharp, well defined grill marks.
Cast iron construction
14" x 14" grill surface, 4" high legs
The Outer Filter: Made of a flame resistant fiberglass material. If any hot ash get sucked into the vacuum, the fiberglass filter will not start on fire.
This filter will typically last for many years depending on the use but it is a good idea to have a new filter on hand in case for replacement purposes. Many times people think their home is all dusty because their stoves are not leak proof but in actuality it is the way you clean your fireplace.
This filter package will fit the Cheetah II or the Cougar Ash Vacuum The filter package comes with two filters: Outer and Inner filters.
Outer Filter: Made of a flame resistant fiberglass material. If any hot ash get sucked into the vacuum, the fiberglass filter will not start on fire.
Inner filter: Made from a high quality material that will filter even the finest of ash. Without any ash passing the motors means a longer life on the vacuum.
These filters will typically last for many years depending on the use but it is a good idea to have a filter package on hand in case for replacement purposes. Many times people think their home is all dusty because their stoves are not leak proof but in actuality it is the way you clean your fireplace.
