This book is interesting more from an historical account of how indoor brick ovens were made in the past. It may be a bit lacking in up to date methods. I guess I should have looked at the publishing date prior to purchasing.

Not a good option Dec 12 2007
By J. Canas - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book expecting it to be an explanation of how to build a brick oven. Far from it. If you want history and sixty pages of "facts" this is your book, if you actually are researching to build an oven it won't do.

Overview, no details Sept. 5 2009
By James R. Sibel - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was far less than I had hoped for - it was a historical overview of the use of a bakeoven. If that's what you want to read - go for it.

Turning the clock back! Feb. 5 2013
By Geraldtonjjeeper - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rebuilding or starting anew, the job of creating a state of the (18th century) art in cooking and heating centres for your house, large or small, is covered in this small book. The author took me step by step through the development of fireplaces and ovens as they were constructed in colonial and newly independent east coast USA. I now feel I have an understanding of the importance of this most essential part of the house. Also some idea of how to use and maintain one. It was a fascinating trip into the past and a look at an almost ignored part of the 18th century home with a view to design, safety and good cooking. Terrific book, easily read and interesting subject!
