AMHOP For Consumers - Wood Fired Oven Guide

Please select a topic in the list below to see how a wood fired oven constructed by an AMHOP member will enhance your culinary life.

Studies have shown that small amounts of charcoal in your diet can bind to potentially harmful chemicals in your digestive tract, and prevent their introduction into your blood stream. Food from a wood fire is bound to have small amounts of charcoal present, and when you enjoy food from your wood fired oven the small amounts of charcoal present will help you to purge toxins from your system, while providing you with some of the best food you've ever enjoyed.

The radiant heat found in a wood fired oven heats food like no other: from the inside out. A conventional oven warms the air, which in turn warms the food. Very little radiant energy is transmitted into the food. In a wood fired oven, however, the masonry mass radiates heat into the food, heating the bones and water within the food which in turn heats the food. This allows the food to cook faster and more thoroughly than before.
