Oven Brushes are used to clear the floor or deck of your pizza oven from ash and food particles.
Pizza Ornate offers natural fiber brushes. Natural fibers are chosen because the bristles will burn up if they fall out of the brush, as opposed to metallic or brass bristles which could become food contaminants. Consequently, natural fiber brushes will wear out over time and are considered a consumable. We recommend misting the brush lightly with water before use to help extend the life of the bristles. A damp brush can also pick up very fine ash and provide a cleaner deck.
We offer two types of brushes, a stiff bristle (Tampico fiber) and a soft bristle (palmyra fiber). Brushes can be configured perpendicular or parallel to their handle. They come in the perpendicular configuration, but can be easily be changed with the two included screws (see pictures).
It is recommended to use these brushes in a cold oven. If using in a hot oven, use extreme caution to prevent the brush from catching on fire. If using in a hot oven, mist the bristles with water to prevent them from catching on fire.
Replacement brushes are available without the handle adapter.
How to choose an Oven Brush
- Bristle Material. Select a stiff bristle (Tampico fiber) for burnt on food and more aggressive scrubbing. Choose and a soft bristle (palmyra fiber) for finer ash and general-purpose cleaning.
- Handle Length. The Oven Brush uses a 2 Hole Handle, which is 3/4” in diameter. When choosing a handle length, consider how deep your oven is, but also how much space you have around your oven. If you have lots of space, longer handles can be easier to use and tend to not get as hot with extended usage. If you have a tighter space, like a small kitchen or food truck, you may select a shorter handle to keep the tool maneuverable.
