    Love it!

    “My oven is finally finished and it looks great!

    “My oven is finally finished and it looks great! When my contractor started in the fall, my only stipulation was that it be finished by Thanksgiving, so I could cook part of my meal in the oven. They finished the Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving, and it started snowing that day. I had spent the prior week curing the oven while the final pieces of the stone were put on the exterior. So, on Thanksgiving morning I was outside first thing in the morning shoveling the path to the oven and starting my fire! I cooked Turkey Roulades and roasted vegetables in the oven and it performed perfectly. We have done several Pizzas as well and they have been fantastic. We look forward to spring and the chance to do more cooking in our CBO. Thanks Guys!”- David A. Queensburg, NY

    I first discovered wood-fired brick ovens on a cooking show a few years ago.

    I first discovered wood-fired brick ovens on a cooking show a few years ago. I have always wanted one since then. I did some research looking for the best one and the same company kept coming up, Chicago Brick Oven. I got my oven in April 2015 and started cooking right away, after I Installed, making sure to follow the instructions that were included. The oven and the pizzas I cooked became the sensation of my small town! We had pizza parties every weekend and then I started experimenting! We have made pizza, steaks, fish, baked potatoes, cookies, pumpkin seeds, Mac n' Cheese, calzones, stuffed peppers, and my favorite, fresh pita bread. I have had no complaints about my oven and can't wait to cook something new with it every weekend. I highly recommend Chicago Brick Oven to everyone that has a passion for cooking great food.- Joe N.

    I absolutely love my CBO!

    I absolutely love my CBO! It has become the centerpiece to my Backyard Kitchen. The best part… I can now cook my Famous Neapolitan Tomato and Sausage Pie in my CBO instead of a conventional oven. And, the CBO team was with me throughout the entire installation process! Great customer service guys. -Mike C.

    We love out Chicago Brick Oven Pizza!

    We love out Chicago Brick Oven Pizza!! We use it all year round and love the fact that it was made in the USA. The flame roll looks magnificent at night and is the center piece of our backyard. We wouldn't have considered any other oven than a CBO!


    Ask a Question
    • What's the heating time of stainless steel and brick ovens?

      Stainless steel pizza ovens will heat faster but they won't stay hot as long. Brick ovens take longer to completely heat but the heat will be retained in the oven for much longer cooking times.  

    • What are the features of Chicago Brick Ovens?

      These ovens are certified to UL and NSF4 Standards for safe indoor/outdoor installations. They have a proprietary low dome design and flue system which creates a dynamic Flame roll - not only does it look great but it generates temps as high as 1000 degrees for true wood-fired taste. You can purchase the base kit and then customize using your own design. We also have many celebrities using the CBO ovens such as Guy Fieri, Rachael Ray, and Iron Chef Restaurateurs, Edward Lee and Tim Love.  

    • What are the features of CBO-500 and CBO-750 kits?

      The CBO-500 is a kit that comes in 3 pieces with the prefabricated dome totally complete. Then, you can finish in the material (stone, brick, etc.) of your choice. The cooking space of the CBO-500 is 26 ¾" w x 23"d. If you a really serious in this investment, there is a larger CBO-750 kit which has a cooking space of 40"d x 27 ½"w. You get a pizza peel, oven cleaning brush, and infrared thermometer gun with the CBO kits.

    • I am installing it in an outdoor kitchen, but the kitchen is capable of being totally enclosed so I will need to pipe the flue out about 8' or so, is that possible?

      Yes, you can easily extend the flue. We carry the Duravent chimney pipe that works great for extending the flue. You can also re-route the chimney if necessary - you just need to have the first 24" straight up from the oven. After that, you can turn if necessary. We've had some customers go as far as 30' without any drafting issues. It's really up to you (or any local guidelines) as to whether you want to go up through the roof or through a sidewall. Some people even put in just a hood and then have their oven and/or grill underneath the hood directing the smoke through it.

    • Where do the Chicago Brick Pizza ovens ship from?

      These ovens are manufactured and ship from Chicago.  

    • Is There A Max Length Of Pizza Oven Chimney Vent Pipe Allowed?

      We have seen 30 feet of venting used without drafting issues with our Chicago Brick Ovens.

    • What Type Of Pipe Do I Need To Use Chimney Vent Wall Piping?

      We recommend Duravent double wall pipe. We carry the Duravent pipe and can work with you to get the lengths you need. Just shoot a quick email to and let us know what you are planning.
