This is our first pizza oven, so we weren’t sure what to expect. We’ve done several pizzas and cedar plank salmon so far, and are really enjoying it. Had a minor issue with the chimney extension, which they replaced immediately.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review Tom!! We greatly appreciate it! Your setup looks fantastic and we know that food must be as good as it sounds when you're cooking it in a Maximus!
Oven was delivered as ordered, no problems. I have had a mostly metal pizza oven with a slim pizza stone, it was hard to keep a consistent temperature. This oven has thick fire brick, which stays at a constant 600-700 degrees for hours with minimal wood addition. First pizza was beautiful, and so far every one after that. Baked an apple crisp in the ceramic dish the oven came with, it was delicious! Love my Maximus Arena, and so do my friends! Thank you, Patio and Pizza!

We love our oven. We’ve baked pizza, salmon, chicken and bread is next on the list. We researched ovens and decided on the Maximus because it was the best value. We chose to buy it from Patio & Pizza Outdoor Furnishings because the reviews on their service were great. Our experience was ideal and I highly recommend both the oven and the retailer.

Love the oven. Was disappointed when the metal threshold came off after a week. Patio & Pizza have been excellent in getting this corrected. Was disappointed when the manufacturer sent me Liquid Nails to fix. Now I am waiting for the correct adhesive from the manufacturer.
Thank you so much for the review Peter! We always appreciate such honesty. We really were disappointed to hear that you experienced the issue with the metal plate, but were eager to help you resolve it. We strive to provide the highest customer service and diligently work to be able to provide it. A happy customer is the best customer! Thank you for being so understanding through this process!
Can you put it on a wood surface?
The bottom of the Maximus Oven is well-insulated. With that said, you are dealing with fire in the oven so the chance of dropping a burning embers on the wood surface is possible. Therefore, we recommend putting a barrier between the pizza oven and any combustible material.
What is the recommended type and size of wood to use?
That's a great question. You can find a great resource for the types of wood recommended for wood-fired cooking here.
