From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Heb. tannur, (Hos. 7:4). In towns there appear to have been
    public ovens. There was a street in Jerusalem (Jer. 37:21)
    called "bakers' street" (the only case in which the name of a
    street in Jerusalem is preserved). The words "tower of the
    furnaces" (Neh. 3:11; 12:38) is more properly "tower of the
    ovens" (Heb. tannurim). These resemble the ovens in use among
      There were other private ovens of different kinds. Some were
    like large jars made of earthenware or copper, which were heated
    inside with wood (1 Kings 17:12; Isa. 44:15; Jer. 7:18) or grass
    (Matt. 6:30), and when the fire had burned out, small pieces of
    dough were placed inside or spread in thin layers on the
    outside, and were thus baked. (See FURNACE.)
      Pits were also formed for the same purposes, and lined with
    cement. These were used after the same manner.
      Heated stones, or sand heated by a fire heaped over it, and
    also flat irons pans, all served as ovens for the preparation of
    bread. (See Gen. 18:6; 1 Kings 19:6.)
