Questions About Your Oven

How do I clean my wood fired oven?

Good news… you don’t! Once the fire is out and cools, you just sweep it out and it’s ready for the next time!

What is curing and do I need to do this?

Curing simply means removing the moisture in the mortar. Curing will significantly help to protect the cooking ability and the life of your oven.  Just as with the authentic ovens of Europe, it is highly recommended that you “break in” your oven by making a small fire (low heat) to dry out any moisture in the oven.  

So, yes you need to cure your traditional brick and terracotta ovens (not necessary for portable ovens). It is recommended that before you begin you let your oven sit for about a week. You will be starting small fires and repeating daily for 5 days.

Start a small fire and let it burn throughout the day (4-5 hours) maintaining temperature:

Day 1. 140F/60C Day

Day 2. Repeat 215F/100C

Day 3. Repeat 300F/ 150C

Day 4. Repeat 400F/200C Day

Day 5. Repeat 480F/250C

Make sure that you close the oven door each night, which will keep in the heat and protect moisture from getting in until the curing process is complete.  A visual inspection of your oven will provide you with the best clue as to its readiness; the brick surfaces transition from black to white as the charcoal is burned off the oven walls.

 

Will my brick oven crack?

Sometimes our customers get so excited when their new oven arrives that they immediately create blazing hot fires for their first pizzas.  Unfortunately, this can lead to cracking if the curing process is not done first.   Cracks are completely normal for all hand-made terracotta and brick wood-burning ovens and won’t affect the cooking in any way.   However, you can minimize any cracking by going through a proper curing process as recommended above.

In the future, if you do have any superficial cracking in our brick ovens from Authentic Pizza Ovens, you can cover it with the included patch kit.   Here is a link to our website showing how to use it: https://www.patioandpizza.com/blogs/news/how-to-repair-cracks-with-ultrafire

 

Where do I start the fire in the oven?

The fire is started right on the oven floor. First, you build the fire close to the opening of the oven. When it’s burning well, you move it to the middle of the oven floor. When the oven is hot and ready for cooking, you move the fire to the side so your cooking space is available for your culinary masterpieces. Alternatively, you can take the coals out completely but it’s not nearly as fun!

 

How long does a wood-fired oven take to heat up?

It depends on the oven. Typically, when prepared correctly, the oven will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half to get to the right temperature to bake your delicious pizzas.

 

What kind of wood should I use?

Use hard, dry, aged wood such as oak, arbor, walnut, beech, apple, mesquite, maple fruitwood (peach, plum), avocado, olive, pecan, or eucalyptus. Avoid the use of resinous wood such as spruce or pine as they can be dangerous to your health.

 

 

Pizza and Cooking Questions

What tools do I need for my wood fire pizza oven?

You will definitely need a pizza peel.  In Pizza aficionado language, a peel is what you use to put your pizza in the oven, turn the pizza while in the oven, and pull it out when it’s done.  They look like a paddle with a long stick attached and come in wood or metal.

Some people like to use a small handled wood peel to prepare and put the pizza in the oven.  Then, they use a long handled aluminum peel to take out and place the pizza back on the wood one to cut and serve it.

There are different kinds of pizza peels. Long, short, wood, metal and combination of both.  If you don’t have a shovel or brush for your pizza oven, you will need them also.

For pizza tools, visit our website at https://www.patioandpizza.com/collections/pizza-oven-accessories 

 

What else can I cook in this oven?

If you can think of it, you can probably cook it in your oven! Naturally, our ovens bake the most delicious home-made pizzas!  But, you can try your hand with breads, fish, steak, burgers, lamb, desserts and more.  Some of our ovens even allow for a rotisserie add-on that allow you to create mouth-watering chicken and turkey! 

Typically, food will cook a bit faster (15 minutes approx.) in a wood burning oven than it does in a regular kitchen oven.

What kind of flour should I use?

Excellent pizza is all about the crust! We recommend several kinds of flour:

  • King Arthur Flour
  • Hayden Flour Mills
  • Caputo’s 00 (low in gluten)

Questions About Your Oven Delivery

What is the expected delivery time?

Depending upon where you live you should receive it within 4-10 days. We will give you shipping information and instructions once the freight company has confirmed pick up. We usually arrange pick up within 1-2 business days of purchase.

What if my oven is damaged when it arrives?

All ovens will be shipped without any damages and packed securely. It is important that you inspect your shipment with the driver when it arrives. In the rare event that there is damage, please have the driver note it on the freight bill PRIOR to the delivery truck leaving.

Do you offer a warranty?

We want you to be happy with your product!   All of our products come with their manufacturer warranties.  

Regarding pizza ovens, our ovens are quality checked before being shipped to our customers. That being said, traditional wood burning ovens may develop small cracks either inside or outside as described above. This is normal and you should expect it to happen.  As you do your research, you will find that this is the case with all handmade European wood fire ovens. Therefore, there is not a return warranty on our traditional ovens due to any cracking. Personally, we think it adds character and is recognized in Europe as a sign of a well-seasoned oven.

Great Service

I got a more than fair deal on a new wood burning oven. They were there to answer all of my questions, and offered more patience and assistance at every opportunity. I even accidentally ordered an accessory twice at which point they contacted me to see if it was in fact a mistake, and promptly cancelled the extra order, and happily refunded my money. I called there twice with more questions which they cheerfully answered.

We couldn't wait!

We couldn't wait! Still waiting for our shelter house to be completed so we can put it in its final place but couldn't wait. So, we set it on a pallet and random bricks and have already made about 20 pizzas.

Super first oven!

Super first oven! This is our first pizza oven so I researched extensively before purchasing. We went with this oven mainly due to price and size. It was a great choice as it's lighter than most wood burning pizza ovens, heats up quickly (around 20 minutes), and cooks pizzas in under 3 minutes. Great choice for pizza parties on the patio.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • How do you move it around? Are there handles to assist? does it come with a stand/wheels? Can you move it when hot?

    Great question!  There is a custom stand for the Maximus oven that is an optional accessory.  Here is the link to the Maximus with the stand.  Typically, we don't move the oven while it's cooking but the stand does have casters so you can easily move the oven around.   Let us know if you have any additional questions about the Maximus or any other oven!

  • What are the measurements of the door opening?

    The dimensions of the Maximus Pizza Oven door opening are 15.5"w x 9"h.  The cooking area inside the Maximus pizza oven is 23.5"w x 23.5"d.  If you haven't seen it yet, here is a great video of someone cooking using the Maximus oven so you can see the dimensions for comparison.

  • What's the floor size of the brick ovens from Authentic Pizza Ovens?

    There is 5" from the bottom of the oven to the floor base. The base filled with Rockwood insulation is approximately 2.5" so the bricks are around 2.5" thick as well.

  • 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.  

  • How long will it take to have my Maximus pizza oven delivered?

    We typically ship our Maximus oven from Authentic Pizza Ovens when you order them (same or next day).  The Maximus Pizza Oven ships from our warehouse in Arizona so depending on where you live, the delivery time could be 1 - 7 days. You will receive a tracking email as soon as your pizza oven ships so you will be able to track your oven.  Once your pizza oven arrives at the local terminal, you should get a call from the freight company to schedule the actual delivery.

  • Should you keep the Maximus pizza oven covered when not in use?

    While the Maximus pizza oven is made of stainless steel and aluminum which stands up well in harsh weathers, we always recommend covering any outdoor appliance when not in use to protect it from the sun, rain, and harsher weathers.   With proper care and covering with the Maximus Oven Covers, your outdoor Maximus wood-burning oven should last a lifetime!

  • What size pizza can you cook

    The cooking space of the Maximus oven is around 23.5" x 23.5" so, depending how much wood you use in the oven, you should be able to can cook a couple of 10" pizzas or a really large pizza.  Since the fun is making and cooking pizzas, we find most customers (including ourselves) make smaller personal pizzas so you can have fun trying a variety of pizza styles during the pizza party!  You can find a video showing pizzas cooking in the Maximus wood-fired oven on the Video tab of the Maximus product page. 

  • Can you paint or tile the red or black exterior steel?

    Since the Maximus Oven is already painted, putting a different color layer of paint right on top of the oven may not stick as well.  Therefore, it is not recommended.  You could potentially tile the oven using a compound that would stick to the painted surface and hold the tiles.
