comment Using a non-kosher rotating pizza oven
@Dude I recommend that you see the diagram in the description, as this is not at all like a traditional pizza oven. It is not made out of brick, I think it is mostly metal and plastic. Anyway, you are on the right track as to the information I am trying to learn--supposing this is an appliance in a common area that the user does not own, are there ways that it can be used? Your foil answer is what I'm looking for--are there any more options along those lines? For example, in this open design, if the base is covered in foil, could the food be exposed to the upper heating element? If not, why?

comment What is the history of Teimani peyos?
@sam, the information I am looking for is the history of the practice, not necessarily reasons why to have long payos. Do we have some reason to believe that Teimanim learned it from Mordechai?

comment Hashem studies Torah?
@TamirEvan Because I was once specifically taught by a rav that עוסק בתורה always means "study" and not "teach." (I may very well have misunderstood what he meant.)

comment Using a non-kosher rotating pizza oven
The steam from the pizza may reach the upper heater, but the steam from the upper heater certainly does not reach the pizza, since it is not enclosed. For this reason, I am not sure that this is an analogous situation to a broiler oven. Also, since the question relates to an appliance in a common area, it cannot be assumed to remain kosher. Would a foil covering suffice instead of replacing the turntable?
