Our oven have been isolated already in the works, but not with the usual glass wool - but with a cork insulation. This saves about 30% and the wood stove keeps the heat much longer than with the usual insulation type. Our environment will thank you.
Therefore, you must not isolate (glass wool) and not more plaster (mortar). A big plus is the enormous heat storage of the furnace through the factory insulation. This work we have already done for you in the preparation. And that means for you: your stone oven baking, you can fire up immediately and bake off! You should (must) protect your Mediterraneo stone oven from the elements (rain), otherwise moisture into the vault one, which can damage the oven. That make you just as we have our own private Mediterraneo M100RR, made it best: Your insulated Mediterraneo brick oven comes in the color red. This gives you a lifetime of enjoyment from your Mediterraneo brick oven, you should protect it from rain following dimensions:
Apply a waterproofing, eg 1 liter of MEM (facades protection). In addition, you should cover your stone oven when not in use, eg a waterproof tarp. Who wants it more beautiful, can can be tailored by the sailmaker a tarp. This is very effective, looks good and is not expensive. You can also beautify it, while protecting as many of our customers (see customer examples), have made. At this point we once again thank our customers who have supplied sand us your photos, very much !!
That's it and it can stay outdoors!
To achieve a comfortable working height, set the wood oven on a pedestal, a pedestal or a work island. It is recommended to provide a canopy ..... thus their gem is protected and you are also in the dry!
Very important is the branding of the oven, it is very important to take the oven slow in operation (moderate heat about 100 ° C). 2-3 Days, gradually increasing to 300 ° C because the furnace still have some residual moisture when it is delivered to you.

(Heating) your Mediterraneo wood / stone oven.
The firing of your wood-burning oven must also be skillful.
Do not use chemical lighters.
First, take crinkled newspaper paper, please do not take high-gloss paper and spread it on the floor. Then place the small-split wood and the combustion chamber with well-dried wood (6-8 pieces of approx. 10 cm thick).
Do not take conifers as it contains oils. It can affect the taste of the food.
As an igniter you take a match or lighter. Open the doors of your Mediterraneo wood-burning oven and open the throttle at the chimney.
If the small split wood does not burn properly, you can blow in air or help with the bellows.
When the wood starts to burn, you can leave the fire alone. Close the upper door, leave the lower door open. Fully open the chimney throttle valve.
Until the stove is now properly heated and also the stones are completely heated, it usually takes one to two hours, depending on the amount of wood and oven size. Depending on the baking plan, the temperature should be moderately exceeded.
Remove the combustion chamber (bake only with bread). Close the throttle and the doors. If the temperature is still too high, the throttle valve can remain open until you reach your desired temperature.
If you want to make pizza, tarte flambée or roast, the heat remains in the oven.
Then push the embers into the back of your Mediterraneo oven and leave the upper or lower door and the throttle about 1 cm high so that the embers do not stifle and feed carefully.
If you want to bake for several hours with your Mediterraneo, it would be counterproductive to remove the embers, do you agree with me?
With a bit of practice, you will always be able to do better and you will be more experienced. As a firewood please use only natural wood without paints and glazes.

You do not need to isolate the Mediterraneo wood oven! We have already carried out all necessary insulation measures.
The kiln building consists of bricks that have been fired up to 900 ° C. When the furnace wall is erected, mixing is made to distribute loads and forces evenly in the wall. With refractory cement, these are fitted with a bearing joint and a butt joint. The insulation consists of a composite of cork and a special color mixture, which is applied to the already dried oven (The cork-color mixture is a treasured company secret). In this way the generated heat energy is maximized and expanded and the firewood consumption is reduced.
