Oven Brush

An oven brush is one of the essential tools you need for any pizza oven. You use it clean the oven floor after firing, before you start making pizzas, and from time to time when you are making pizzas to clean away burned flour, as well as any pizza making mistakes.

The oven brush typically has a head roughly 6-10″ wide attached to a handle made from wood, aluminum or stainless steel, with brushes made from soft brass. The handle length is typically between 36-60″ depending on the size of your oven. Some brushes have a head that can be turned from side to side, helping you get into the oven corners.

Be very careful to not use a grill brush on your pizza oven floor. Firebricks and Biscotto stones can be easily scratched with a hard, stiff brush, causing serious damage.
