Oven:

The eastern oven is of two kinds-fixed and portable. The former is found only in towns, where regular bakers are employed (Hosea 7:4). The latter ia adapted to the nomad state, it consists of a large jar made of clay, about three feet high and widening toward the bottom, with a hole for the extraction of the ashes. Each household possessed such an article (Exodus 8:3) and it was only in times of extreme dearth that the same oven sufficed for several families (Leviticus 26:26). It was heated with dry twigs and grass (Matthew 6:30) and the loaves were placed both inside and outside of it.
