Opinions or Experience with Haussler Master Stone Oven?

I'm interested to hear your opinions or experience you might have with Haussler ovens. I know they are quite uncommon here in the US so this might be a stretch. My needs are for a non-professional baker that does take his baking seriously and most importantly enjoys it very much :-)

The oven is to fit somewhere in between my 30" Wolf dual-fuel convection and Le Panyol model 83 WFO. Sometimes the weather here in New England is not ideal for doing a lot of work outside with the WFO, but I do bake all winter long. Another advantage of the Haussler for me is that sometimes during the week I'd like to bake, but balancing the timing of my dough, WFO temperature, and taking all of those endless Zoom meetings makes it so that I'm not always baking when I want. Knowing that the Haussler will be ready exactly when my dough is ready would give me more flexibility to, er.... multitask!

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, 

Same here I have been talking with for a few months with Pleasant hill grain about this oven... Non-professional use as well mainly for baguettes ( perfect size oven...) I am just pending the electrical specs before making the jump as I would need a new 220 V line. Looks like an amazing piece of equipment.

Believe they will receive a few of them at the end of Feb...

happy to continue to exchange on this...

Take care

Dom

Hi Dom - I put an order in back in early Jan and hoping to see something by the end of Feb. Not a lot of details on power, if it comes with a cord etc. I live the size for baguettes or a bunch of bagels. I'll still be using my WFO, but this will fit in nicely I hope.

I'm trying to figure out a nice strong short table to sit it on. 33" x 40" dimensions are a tad larger than a standard. I think I'm going with two 36x20" dunnage racks.

Hi,

Spoke yesterday with PHG and looks like they are coming in june now....:-(....

If you are interested I have the manual for the oven... in german but google translate works well... 

it is pretty big and heavy so will so how I can manage... Haussler is selling a stand for the oven but might be pricey...

Let me know about the manual.

Cheers.
