About Forneau Bread Oven
The Forneau Bread Oven is a new product currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter that promises to give customers the ability to bake amazing loaves of bread in their own kitchen oven.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the creators of the original Forneau Bread Oven and the new Forneau Bread Oven 2.0 wanted to give people access to the super-heated container method of baking, which gives people a way to make beautiful loaves of bread in their own kitchen.
The Kickstarter page says that this company’s new version works hard to improve upon their original version, giving people several new components that work with the original oven base and cover to help people get the best baking results.
To begin with, the oven now has a redesigned hatch with removable handle, which minimizes the amount of heavy lifting you have to do, especially when the oven and its pieces are hot. They have also made it easier to load and unload the bread by using a baking tray that stays in the baking chamber and can pulled out using the same removable handle that works with the hatch.
Finally, their website says they have included a silicone baking mat which allows moisture from the bottom of the loaf to wick away, creating an amazingly crispy bottom, and virtually eliminating the need for flour or breadcrumbs.
The Kickstarter page says that they truly believe that this newest version of their product is an upgrade over their original.
This product is actually not yet available on the open market, as it is still in the process of their Kickstarter crowdfunding project. During their crowdfunding, customers will be able to purchase a Forneau Bread Oven for $215, which includes the Forneau 2.0 Cast Iron Base, Cover, and Hatch, the Forneau Handle, the Plateau Baking Tray, Recipe Book, and Silicone Baking Mat. And though the website does not publish the eventual full retail price of this product, the reality is that products are generally more affordable when they are purchased during the crowdfunding stage.
Their website does say that this product is estimated to ship in October of 2017, but these dates may change if issues or problems occur during the production process.
Because this product is still in the crowdfunding stage of production, it does not appear that their website offers any information regarding refunds or returns of their product at this time.
Customers who are curious about refunds of the money they paid to the Kickstarter campaign will need to contact their Customer Service team directly to see what policies might be in place, and hopefully by the time these products begin shipping out to crowdfunding supporters the website itself will be offering a published, detailed explanation of Refund or Return Policies for their customers who have an issue with their purchase.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by using the Ask A Question link available on their Kickstarter page.
Since this company already has the original version of the Forneau Bread Oven available for sale, customers can look to the original reviews to get an understanding of the positives and negatives of this product. The original Forneau Oven actually received really positive reviews, and it appears that the goal of the second version is intended to improve upon the design concerns of the first version, so customers can reasonably expect to get a good performing product from this company.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned above, customers are welcome to look into the original Forneau Bread Oven, or there are many different varieties of bread makers at your local kitchen and home goods stores that customers can choose from.
