Wood Stone offers ovens in wood, wood-gas combination, and gas only configurations. In addition, most Wood Stone ovens can be equipped with a thermostatically controlled infrared (under floor) burner option – which makes them the highest production ovens available in the world.

With thinner or multi-piece ovens, or with gas fired ovens that have only a radiant dome flame this balance can be difficult to maintain during heavy production cycles. As pizzas (or other products) are placed on the floor they shadow the cooking surface from the only heat sources in the oven — the heat coming off of the dome and the radiant flame. Learn More!
