Where Can I Use This Oven?

This oven is made for outdoor use only because it works not only as an oven, but as a smoker. The pull out rack makes it easy to maintain fires using wood or charcoal. For easy manoeuvrability, use the 2 oversized wheels located on the right side. The heavy-duty vinyl cover is created to prolong the life of the oven while the ceramic bricks and pizza stone will maximize heat retention.

 

What Makes This Oven Special?

The Fornetto Alto Wood Fired Oven and Smoker adds a delicious smoky flavour to dishes. It fits large pizza sizes and dishes with a warming drawer underneath the fire box to keep meals warm before they’re ready to serve. 

Both the oven door and the warming drawer includes a large thermometer to view heat levels. It has a very large 61.2 litre oven cavity and the oven chamber lighting makes it easy to see cooking progress to achieve that perfect crispiness. Chefs can even turn the oven into a smoker using the Smoker Slider feature. This draws smoke from the fire chamber to the oven chamber.

This oven is beautiful, versatile, and effective. It’s made with cast iron doors and a strong steel construction that ensures safe operation. It’s even designed with a Cool-touch Chimney Damper Control and Air Control Valves that will help you control the airflow for temperature control. For those cooler evenings, this oven can even be used as an outdoor heater. It comes with a 1-year non commercial warranty.
