Cooking & Operation
The secret of stone-hearth cooking is the Stone. The single-piece floor and dome of the oven are made from specially formulated high-temperature refractory "stone". Our unique construction method and materials produce a deep heat sink (storage) effect that guarantees floor temperature. A guaranteed floor temperature insures consistent cooking zones and consistent product throughout the day.
We know this is the world’s best pizza oven, but can it do more than pizzas? Absolutely! Regardless of the cooking application -- searing/sauté, roasting, baking pizza -- it can all be done at the same time in the same oven, holding in moisture and giving your product wonderful color and texture. For recipe ideas, visit our Cooking section.

While our ovens offer many menu options, pizza is still by far the most common item cooked in our equipment and serves as our baseline for oven hearth size comparisons.

Assuming 5-minute cook times, the approximate maximum hourly production capacity can be calculated by multiplying the above numbers by 12. Cook times will also vary depending on “style” of pizza.

The dual-temperature gas configuration combines a radiant flame gas burner with an under floor infra-red gas burner to provide tremendous floor temperature management capabilities. (Note: RFG-IR can be configured for optional wood burning, adds "W" to model number)
A radiant flame only gas oven utilizes radiant flame burner to heat the stone hearth. (Note: RFG can be configured for optional wood burning, adds "W" to model number)
A dry hardwood fire inside the oven provides all the heat needed for heating the stone-hearth. For heavy production scenarios, an under-floor infra-red burner is available (changes model number to IR-W)
