Memories. Woodfired pizza ovens are brilliant for cooking so many different foods – pizza (obviously), steak, fish, bread, casseroles, roasts, deserts they are all on our list of foods that taste better when cooked with wood, but our favourite creation from a woodfired oven is memories – of family and friends, young and old coming together, sharing a laugh – and great food, creating new memories that do not have expiry date. That is food for the soul.
Our materials are not sourced from big hardware stores or chains, we only buy from Australian businesses and ALL of our production, machining, casting & assembly is carried out by local family businesses. Buying from us not only helps to feed your family, it feeds our family a few other families too.
Insulated Stainless-Steel Oven Door
Our oven door is manufactured from 3mm stainless-steel and includes a 25mm thick layer of solid insulation to minimise heat loss through the door.
The stainless-steel handles are easy to hold and shaped to support the door in multiple positions/angles to achieve the correct amount of airflow/draft into the oven for the food you are cooking.
You might have noticed that we do not include a temperature gauge in our oven door – read on below and you will understand why.
600⁰ Celsius Temperature Gauge
Many ovens have a temperature gauge mounted in the oven door – This left us scratching our heads, as it only tells you the temperature when the door is in place and is redundant when you are not cooking with the door in place – like when you are cooking pizza.
We resolved this issue by sourcing a temperature gauge that is mounted into the dome with a long probe that provides a reliable indication of air temperature inside the oven.
It can be installed on either the left or right side of the oven and easily removed and re-calibrated if required.
Left or Right side must be nominated at time of ordering oven and cannot be changed.
Calcium Silicate Floor Insulation
Calcium Silicate board is installed beneath the firebrick floor to ensure heat is not lost through the base of the oven into the bench below. Achieving and maintaining a constant floor temperature is one of the keys to cooking great food in your woodfired oven.
The 25mm Calcium Silicate board provides a flat, stable surface for the Firebrick floor to sit. We do not recommend an insulation blanket be used for this task, as there is a risk of blanket fibres becoming unstable and contaminating your food.
50mm Firebrick Floor
A constant, even floor temperature is one of the keys to cooking great food from pizza to bread, fish & steak.
50mm thick firebricks store heat in the bricks and the mass/thickness of the brick allows the temperature to even out across the entire surface of the bricks to prevent hot-spots.
50mm Bio-Soluble Insulation Blanket
Our ovens include a Bio-soluble insulation blanket instead of the more common ceramic fibre blankets. This eliminates the dangers and respiratory risks associated with handling fibrous materials.
The blanket helps retain heat in the clay dome and reduce the time required for the oven to reach cooking temperature.
The flexible nature of the blanket allows the oven dome to expand and contract as it heats and cools.
Two-Layer Outer Render Shell with Wire Reinforcing Mesh
Two layers of render provide a durable weather-resistant shell to protect your oven while also providing additional insulation. Stainless-stee mesh adds additional strength to the render shell while still allowing it to expand and contract while heating and cooling.
Colouring oxides can be added to the render while mixing to achieve a specific colour, or the finished render can be painted using a suitable product such as Dulux Accra-tex.
Two Ways To Buy Your Woodey
Our Woodfired Pizza Ovens are supplied as a DIY kit that anyone with basic handyman skills and a few tools can assemble over a weekend. We have specifically used the word “assemble” instead of build as there is nothing for you to build, make, cut or saw.
The only two ingredients you will need to provide to assemble your oven is sand & water. All other materials – render, mortar insulation blanket, reinforcing wire mesh, are all provided.
The oven dome is supplied complete with no extra work required, the firebrick floor and insulation board is already cut to the correct shape.
You will need a few basic tools – A shovel and wheelbarrow, sharp knife, side-cutters & pliers, a small trowel, sponge and a couple of buckets.
Easy to Follow Instructions – With Pictures
We all know the joy of trying to follow Swedish stick figures, so our woodfired ovens are supplied with simple step by step instructions including colour photos so you can literally see what to do next and what it should look like as you are doing it.
If you require extra guidance or you just don’t think something is right, we are only a phone call of Facetime click away.
Standard Light Grey
The render that forms the outer shell of the woodfired oven can be coloured during the mixing process by adding a coloured oxide if desired.
