So you can't use a regular oven?

No, you watched the video. A regular oven would bake too slowly. The need these roaring hot brick ovens. The actual baking takes two minutes.

Did you watch it? It says about 20 seconds to cook. In this video it seems only a second or two. Anyone want to translate the the song for me?  :)

Great question, Count! I bet you're used to seeing those boxes of Manishewitz for a few dollars a box at the grocery store.

What these guys are talking about is handmade stuff. Every phase of the process from reaping the wheat to kneading the dough is done the old fashioned way, no machines. It's a tedious process. Lots and lots of labor. If you could do it in China, I suppose it would be much cheaper. Hey! I just got an idea!!!!!
Still doesn't justify price.  It's expensive because it could be. Same as esrogim.
If you don't care why would you comment?

If you're referring to the owners the matzah bakeries,  they make more than a living.

+1 it is also a few week endeavor. They must do something else as well, unless this really is enough money for a year!

It is not a few weeks.  The actual baking starts chanukah time. 

They are busy pretty much the whole year with it. 

They need to get the flour, water,  supplies, etc.

I don't think anyone is actually making a killing of this, from speaking to someone in the know, supplies cost a small fortune. Ever checked how much a lb of shmura flour costs? Ever see how much gets thrown out in these bakeries?
They probably do make enough money in these 3-4 months to live off throughout the year but what do you expect? Try tell your boss that you need a 4 month vacation for religious purposes. You can't really have another job with this and the bakery needs upkeep throughout the year.

  Not true . all bakeries in america and most everywhere reap with a combine . barring special order the grinding is machine as well . same with machine pump for the water. its only from the pouring of the water that its done by hand.
