Pizzas are as popular now as they have ever been. The same is true of barbecues. We need few excuses these days to enjoy alfresco dining, other than a fine day.
There is also nothing better than making your own pizzas.
The Rústico Brick oven is a well insulated Outdoor Pizza Oven which has been made in Portugal, using traditional methods. Capable of reaching between 350° and 400°, faster than other similar ovens thanks to its excellent thermal mass, the oven will also maintain the temperature for longer.
With high cooking temperatures, this oven will produce the perfectly cooked pizza with a crispy base in around a minute. The high temperatures are also great for tandoor style cooking and as the oven cools, it lends itself to breads and slow cooking. A built-in thermometer with 30cm probe inside the oven enables you to monitor for optimum temperatures for each cooking style.
The external dimensions of this Rústico oven are 110cm x 110cm. With an attractive brick finish, it not only delivers on looks, but features too and would provide a wonderful centrepiece to any garden. You won’t be struggling for space in the oven either, the cooking area is a massive 90cm x 75cm, plenty to cook a veritable feast.
The aluminium door is in two parts, measuring 39cm x 28cm, with a glass viewing window in the top section so you can keep an eye on things without having to open the door and lose heat. There are two holes for spits (available to purchase separately) in the door, with corresponding spigots inside the oven at the rear, ideal for spit roasted chicken or other slow roasting meat joints.
There is an air inlet vent on the door which, along with the stainless steel chimney, will enable you to adjust the air flow inside the oven and regulate smoke with the choke. The chimney flue can be extended if required, to improve draft.
The Rústico will require a suitable base to support it. Depending whether you intend to include a working surface at the side, the base should be a minimum of 110cm square.
The substantial weight of this oven (approx. 800kg) will necessitate it being delivered in a pallet crate. We will need to contact you to agree a convenient delivery date, so please ensure your order includes accurate contact information. Please consider how you will move the 800kg oven once it is delivered to you. We recommend hiring an engine hoist which will make it possible to move the oven to your desired location and lift it onto your base. A group of people alone will not be enough to lift this oven.
