The van will have a tail lift and pump truck to offload your oven. Technically its to kerb side but most drivers are very helpful and will drop it somewhere handy. The palette is shrink wrapped to keep the contents safe and dry.
You will need a 13mm spanner and cross head screwdriver to assemble the oven. The 4 legs are simply bolted to the top frame. The lower frame is then dropped into place and also bolted on.
The rusica oven installation completed. (Approximately 30 mins) Chimney and brick liner in place. The only thing to be done is the setting of 2 tiles which go on the front of the oven base. This is a cosmetic feature and can be done at anytime.
What else is useful?
A set of our professional cookware is very useful. They are all metal so can be fully immersed in the oven. You can cook anything with this range. A large Paella pan, and 2 handled pans comprise the set. In addition we include a large pizza cutter and dough scraper.
An splitting maul or axe is indispensable for splitting timber down to size. We don’t sell these but they are readily available.
The pizza oven was my Best Buy of 2017, real success and talking point for numerous get togethers culminating in my grandsons birthday party , 40 pizzas made with selected toppings . Brilliant .

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.
