What is in the full kit?

badge2The Rustica is perhaps the first outdoor wood fired pizza oven that is specifically designed with the home user in mind. Easy to use, ready in minutes not hours. Well, obviously not minutes as such, but at best you could be up to temperature in about 30 minutes, subject to ambient temperature and dryness of both the oven and the wood being used. Typically an hour is needed and you are up to temperature.

Which incidentally is of the order of 400C nice and hot! Pizzas in two minutes!  No construction is required the oven is ready to use out right out of the box. Add a few logs and your on the way to great tasting food.

drawingWhen the PizzaForno was designed we looked to traditional designs that have of course been tried, tested and refined over hundreds of years. Armed with this knowledge we produced the PizzaForno. The fusion of modern processes (we employ techniques and materials that are utilised in the channel tunnel!)  with traditional designs provides you with a solution that performs like a dream!

Easy to handle light weight 85kg dome and 85kg base. (Dry Weight)

 

A complex mixture of modern refractory materials provide a light, durable but above all efficient solution. A modular design means you can purchase only the components you require or a full package complete with stand, tools and wood! Everything you need to get started. Well, almost, you will need a match to light the fire! 

Our kit requires no construction. The stand is flat packed with easy assembly taking only a few minutes to put together. The only thing you need to do is lay two tiles on the base after it has been fired up and properly dry. At this point you can customise the look of your oven and change the tile for a design of your choosing. Of course this does not stop you using the the oven.

Wooden peels are a little thick and as such can be tricky to use. So we use peels which have been designed for ease of use and durability. A wooden handle and a thin flexible aluminium head. This thin head makes lifting of the uncooked pizza a breeze.

 

A Sense of Scale

People told us that its hard to get a sense of proportion from photographs or measurements on a drawing. So we got our social media manager to pose next to an oven to give it a sense of scale, he’s an average 5’10” 😉

The delivery drivers will usually try and drop the palette somewhere handy. But they can't work on gravel or very rough ground as the wheels on the truck sink.

Just wanted to tell you the pizza oven was delivered on Friday evening, great! It was assembled yesterday and has had 2 firings, up to 50c & 100c (cold before the second firing). Its covered now as we’re having heavy rain 🙁 Initial thoughts – easy assembly, great design and very attractive. (Happy man)

Still building base structure and still a little way off finishing. But plan to have it finished by the end of the summer. Thanks for insulation tips. Party went well, cooked 20 pizza’s where I’d only cooked 1 previously the night before. Talk about cutting it fine! Oven looking super, few hairline cracks but I know that’s to be expected! Made dough last night, because tonight is pizza night before the weather changes. Away out to light this baby, love it I’ll stay in touch and send you some pics of the finished pizza area.

Specification subject to change without notice.
