Online customer service was excellent. Stain steel pipe and cap is what the doctor order.
Inserted the pipe in the opening, fit as stated, few shims to center the pipe in the opening.
Inserted plenty of high temperatures mortar around pipe, allowed few days for the mortar to thoroughly day.
Bye for now.
Thank you for the review Raymond and for sending the picture - your oven looks amazing! Enjoy it for years to come and let us know if you need anything further!
The customer service representative was excellent and made sure that what I was ordering was truly what I needed for my project. Now fully installed the chimney and cap look great. Only heads up was that this product was extremely sharp on all edges. Be careful when handling, even with leather gloves.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review Steven. We are ecstatic to hear that your chimney and cap were exactly what you needed and look great installed! Please do not hesitate to reach out in the future if there is ever anything else we can assist you on. :-)

Stunning stainless steel , cover allows the air to vent w no waiter entry
Thank you Arthur for the great review! You are correct, our Chimney with Cap does it’s job and looks stunning while doing it! Not only does it keep water and moisture out of your oven (which is very important!), it provides an alternate path for cooking smoke to exit your oven which not only makes your food even more delicious, but it also minimizes soot build-up around the door! We’re happy to hear you’re happy!
Fast shipping and an easy slip fit onto our pizzaioli oven no muss, no fuss. All stainless steel so no rust issues. Great price and it took about 20 second to install. Slip the chimney cap on and then slip the chimney on the oven. Done!
Thanks so much for the great review, Robert! So appreciated! We're thrilled to know that you had such an easy time installing your chimney! Enjoy your Pizzaioli!
THE CHIMNEY FLUE AND CAP WORKED GREAT. I COULDN'T FIND THE RIGHT SIZE FOR A WHILE. IT HELPED THE THE OVER ALL PERFORMANCE OF THE OVEN AS WELL.
Thanks for the wonderful review John! Glad it worked great! Let us know if you need any assistance in the future! We are here to help!
Patio and Pizza provided outstanding customer service in my experience. I ordered a chimney for my pizza oven and received an email the following day from Pam verifying that I was aware the chimney was only 5.5" in diameter versus the standard US size of 6". Pam was concerned I would inquire additional shipping charges if I had to return the chimney. This type of service is rare and very much appreciated!
Thanks for the great review Mike. We are always here to help! Enjoy your new chimney!
What is thickness of wall and what type of stainless steel is It?
Great question! The chimney walls are .5mm and made of 306 stainless steel. If you need a longer chimney, you can put any number of the chimney segments together as the ends are male/female and fit together.
Do the stainless steel chimney pipe discolor because of the heat ? Does the double lined chimney pipe and cap keep more heat in the oven ?
These stainless steel chimney pipes will not stain as a result of heat, however, there will be an accumulation of soot after cooking which, if left to build up can be difficult to remove and this type of buildup can also be a fire hazard. The easiest way to avoid this is to clean your chimney and oven after each use, after the oven has cooled down. For the chimney, the soot can be removed with a brush. We do not recommend you use any strong chemicals, such as oven cleaner to clean these ovens as it may damage the surface.
Chimneys with caps are an excellent purchase because they not only direct and smoke up and away from you, your cooking area and the food you are cooking, but also because they also help to keep dew and rainwater out of your oven and finally, prevent staining around the oven’s mouth where the smoke escapes if there is no chimney. A chimney cap will also prevent any burning embers from escaping your oven.
The difference between a single walled chimney pipe and a double walled chimney pipe isn’t so much that it will keep more heat in the oven, instead, it is because a double layered pipe contains a layer of insulation between both layers of metal. The main benefit of this is that the outside of a double walled chimney pipe will be less hot, which is why double walled chimneys are used rather than single wall when an oven is installed inside or near any combustible surfaces (such as walls, or floors). If a single walled chimney were used in these cases there would be a significant fire hazard. I hope this helps to answer your questions!
While building a protective cover for the oven. How far apart from the stainless steel chimney pipe does your wood have to be
All ovens have different clearances but here is a good reference for best practices: https://www.patioandpizza.com/blogs/resources/indoor-pizza-oven-installation
Because this is a singe wall chimney, can I put stucco on it as part of the finished oven?
It's not advised to place stucco directly on a chimney pipe as doing so may cause moisture to gather within the pipe and/or under the stucco and this could cause damage to the pipe, stucco and/or oven. However, you can paint the exterior of the pipe using high heat paint.
Can the chimney be easily removed and reinstalled so the cover can be installed when not in use?
Yes, the chimney just has a tight fit so to remove it you simply twist and pull the chimney up and off the flue. Then, you put the cover over the oven. We often put our chimney inside the oven when not in use.
