The Deluxe is painted in a contemporary deep red colour, however if you would like to change the colour you can simply use any exterior grade of masonry paint. The Deluxe model is hand built by craftsmen, using refractory bricks to form the dome, and covered with a combination of insulating refractory clay, cement and insulating materials, which help to retain heat within the oven for up to twice the period of non insulated ovens; this has the benefit of using less wood and allowing roasting over periods of up to 6 hours dependant on the climate .
With a base measuring from 70-100cm square, which is reinforced with steel, the dome is hand laid on the top to a thickness of approx 25cm! This gives you a huge cooking space inside and a lot of thermal mass - which is required to ensure high temperatures can be reach and also to allow this heat to be stored for slow cooking. The oven floor is finished in tiles also hand laid to fit the shape of the round dome. With steel stable doors and a lovely brick archway the oven is supplied ready to cook pizza or bread or anything else you like.
We also provide you with a full set of instructions that show you how to build the fire and light it - with many tips and techniques. There is also a guide on what wood is best to use along with some great recipes.
As the ovens are made to order - delivery will take approximately 2 weeks. WE WILL HOWEVER KEEP YOU INFORMED AT ALL STAGES.
