03.22.10 // Q: Can Wood Stone Ovens Reach 800 Degrees?
A: Wood Stone ovens can easily maintain 800 degrees. Wood Stone measures temperature from the deck of the oven – not the dome. We measure the deck temperature in our readout because that is where we are cooking. Many other oven manufacturers measure temperatures in the dome which is not relative to the cooking surface.
When folks ask us about running an oven at temperatures around 800 degrees, it leads us to believe that they are looking to produce a Naples or Near Naples Pizza. We normally cook a VPN Naples Pizza with a deck temperature of approximately 740 degrees. At this temperature there are areas in the dome of the oven that easily exceed 1000 degrees.
We have wood only and gas-fired models that can help to achieve these high temperatures. To learn more, visit our product catalog.
