Olek,

I haven't seen this specific model, but I've seen ones similar to it. I can immediately tell it's going to have a few drawbacks. You can't see the pizza while it's being cooked. And given how it's designed, opening the top will cause all of the heat to escape. Of course, the stone will still be hot, but you won't have any top heat.

Also, you're limited to an 11" pizza.

How much is the oven? And where (which country) do you live? I would recommend the 2Stone or Blackstone ovens. These are great high temperature ovens for home users. They are meant for outdoors though. It's possible to get these ovens in the US. I'm not sure about internationally.

Hey Raj,

thanks for your help.

Previously it was called G3 Ferrari Pizza Oven. Maybe you have previous one?

That's true, you cannot see inside while cooking and all the heat espaces while opening. I hope it ca regain heat pretty fast, as heating coil is very close to pizza. This is disadvantage too, because you can't bake something much thicker.

I still didn't figure out this oven completly. I cannot prepare good old Napolitana in that oven:-)

It costs around $130. I live in Poland.

The solutions you suggest are typical outdoor solution, am I right? I am trying to figure out home solution:-) Do you have any ideas?

Best regards,
Olek

I have the Pizza Pronto Pizza Oven http://www.amazon.com/Pizzacraft-Pizzeria-Pronto-Outdoor-Pizza/dp/B00FKWLWWI which is great for 12" pizzas. It heats to 700 degrees after about 10-15 minutes and pizzas can be cooked in about 8 minutes. For larger pies, including the Sicilian I'm trying tonight. It's back to the conventional oven which seems to work just fine.

Blackstone and 2stone are hard to get from the states. Suppliers dont want to ship to europa. Best solution is to buy an effeuno p134h oven for home use for neapolitan pizza. That oven can easly run at 450°. If you change the thermostat and crank the upper heat element up it is going to run at 500-550 ° celcius. Search for " gsans neapolitan pizza" in internet. He has one of those ovens.

I hadn't heard of the Effeuno oven until now, but it looks cool. Just in case anyone it interested, here's the link:
