Although Forno Bravo's Primavera 60 weighs almost 500 pounds, it is one of their smallest residential pizza ovens. Their larger ovens require professional installation and often need to be moved with a fork lift. Unlike most of FB's ovens, Primavera 60 comes with a stand.
This model includes the refractory wood oven and chimney, metal stand, clay chimney cap, CD ROM for instruction, and a steel door with built-in thermometer. Built-in dial thermometers are inaccurate. Forno Bravo recommends getting an Infrared Gun Thermometer for an accurate reading of the floor and dome temps.
Prmiavera only cooks one 10" pizza at a time. That doesn't sound like much until you consider it can crank thin crust pizzas out in a matter of minutes. Like the name suggests, pizza ovens excel at making pizza, but heavy, high quality ovens like Forno Bravo are versatile and capable of cooking everything from steaks and stews to breads and veggies.

Forno Bravo uses a proprietary mix of castable refractory material for their oven interiors and a thick layer of insulation on the exterior.
