We are so happy with our maximus prime oven. I'm going to put it in a pizza truck and it is even better than I hoped it would be. The only bad thing I could think of would be if you were mistakenly expecting to get Optimus Prime :)
You don't need any Energon or any luck to be able to operate the Maximus Prime! Although I do believe Megatron would probably fight for the Maximus Prime to claim as his own too.
What a wonderful review Shannon! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us one. We truly love the Maximus Prime and the ease of use and installation this oven provides. We are so delighted to hear you are enjoying it as well! We would LOVE to see your food truck adventures! Please do tag us (@patioandpizza) in any photos you may post on social media so we can follow along! :)
Customer service was superb as was the delivery process. When set up and cured made my first pizza in it...WOW it was fantastic. There will be a learning curve to the Maximus but with 20 people coming over for a make your own pizza next week it'll work out superbly.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this wonderful review William! We always want to make sure every customer is as happy as they can possibly be with their purchase from us before, during, and after their experience. It is always nice to hear that we are achieving that top notch customer service we strive for!
I had small issue with oven when it arrived, paint chips from rubbing in box.
They took great and quick care of issue, and we are learning how to cook in our beautiful new oven. Will definitely buy from them in the future with the great service they provide and the product selection.

We were happy to assist you through the paint mishap and will be happy to assist you with anything else in the future! Thank you so much for sharing a photo and taking the time out of your day to leave this review!

Customer service was amazing
They go above and beyond to answer all of your questions
I have recommended you guys to a lot of people, even people on pizza sites on Facebook from all over the world
I will definitely buy through you again when we sell our house
My shipment took nearly 2 months to arrive, and upon arrival, was found to have some significant structural damage (think: dents, cracked bricks, torn insulation blanket). Patio and Pizza was kind enough to provide me with a cover and replacement bricks, along with some instructions for how to repair the dents. Aside from the shipping issues, the product works great overall and I've really enjoyed learning how to build and maintain the fire, and cook some great food!
Your setup looks great Jordan! Thank you so much for this honest review! We've faced many challenges through this unprecedented time; shipping delays being the largest. We truly appreciate your kindness and understanding through the entire process. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or need any help along your pizza making journey! We look forward to helping you with any of your pizza oven needs!
The customer service was excellent, they responded very quickly to all of my questions. The Maximus Prime pizza oven is a great addition to my backyard.
Thanks for this awesome review Amy! We greatly appreciate it! It's always great to hear that you are truly enjoying your Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven! We are sure it will be a staple part of your backyard that you enjoy for many years! :-)
I need to order this oven ahead of time to build the frame of where it’s going to be, how will we get help on lifting it when it’s ready to be dropped
The Prime wood-fired oven weighs approximately 300 lbs so it can be lifted with the help of some strong friends. However, the refractory bricks that make up the oven floor can be easily removed. If you take out the bricks, the oven only weighs around 100 lbs and can be picked up and moved to your base, Then, you can put the bricks back in the oven. We used this method when moving the Prime oven to our own base.
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.
Hi im lock cook eria to put 50 poung pig insade.Im think 50x50
I don't think the Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven is big enough to accommodate something this big. We recommend checking the Earthstone Modular Wood Fired Oven or the Chicago Brick Oven-1000 Pizza Oven Kit for a bigger cooking space!
Do you sell a stand that would support either the Maximus Prime or the Lisboa oven? I do not want to build a foundation.
Can this unit be built in to a summer kitchen and framed and supported properly or does it need exposure other than the chimney?
The Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven isn't certified for indoor use in the United States.
What are the base thickness requirements to support the maximums Prime large pizza oven.
I'm going to share a link to one of our blog posts that will help you with this! The Prime doesn't technically need a top to a base to hold the oven. There are rails on the bottom of the oven to support it. As long as you are making sure the structure you have can support the weight and is made of non-combustible material, you've got everything covered!
How To Build A Pizza Oven Base
Can the Oven be retrofitted with a gas burner. If so, which of the ones you sell would you recommend?
The Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven is a Wood-Burning pizza oven. If you are looking for an oven similar to this that is a gas burning oven, in both size and quality, check out our Alfa Ovens Gas Pizza Ovens!
How hot does the outside get, dome and bottom
Great question! Even though internal temsp are much, much, higher, because of the way it is insulated, the outside of the Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven is cool enough that you can place a hand on it. However, it is highly reccomended that it be placed on a sturdy base, away from all flammable materials.
Does the Maximus come with a propane gas option? If not, do you carry a similar oven that is gas powered?
No, the Maximus Prime does not come in a gas version. We suggest checking our Alfa Ovens Gas Pizza Ovens!
Do you sell the smaller version of the Maximus wood fire over
We do and it only weighs at 130 lbs which is perfectly portable and great to take camping or tailgating! You can check out Maximus Arena Black Outdoor Wood-Fired Oven. It is also available in Black or Red!
is the oven weather proof? i am considering installing it on the patio and exposed to the elements.
The interior walls of the Prime oven are made of 304-2B Stainless Steel and the outside of 1.4mm Aluminum. These materials are better due to its resistance to corrosion. However, all of our ovens require “all-weather” protection from rain, sleet and snow, fallen leaves, and protection from harsh elements when not in use. So it is always recommended you get a cover which protects your investment and looks great while doing so!
How high will the temperature go and how long does it sustain it? How much wood is needed to achieve 850-900 degrees F?
You can put enough wood in the oven to turn it into a fire much hotter than you’d ever need but, at some point, you’ll start burning up your oven. While the oven can withstand a fire of 900 degrees, it’s usually way too hot to cook at that temperature for most customers. We recommend keeping the fire below 900 degrees.
Does this oven have to be vented outside if you use it in a restaurant or can you just set it under the hood system?
The Maximus Prime can be used either way and is a super oven. However, if you need to have an oven that is UL-listed for indoor commercial use, this oven does not have that certification. For commercial ovens certified for indoor commercial use, you may need to look at the ovens found here: https://www.patioandpizza.com/collections/installation_commercial
Does the red exterior fade or loose its color due to heat I want red but worried about discoloration from heat
Thanks for the great question. The Maximus Primes are very popular ovens and, as far as we know, we've never had anyone complain about the red color fading or losing its color. We personally use the Prime oven and love it!
Can I use Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven for baking bread?
Yes, most definitely! We have baked bread in our Maximus Prime Large Oven many times. Also, for reference, here is a video showing bread being baked in the smaller Maximus oven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJn6nfkM6tE
how hot does this oven get to when heating up for about an hour?
The Maximus Prime oven can get well over 900°F within 30 minutes but that is typically too hot for normal cooking. We typically cook in this oven at temperatures between 575°F - 800°F.
Can the Prime Pizza Oven be installed on a trailer?
Most definitely! We have numerous customers using the Prime on trailers and in food trucks. The Prime would work perfectly bolted on a trailer because it has 3 rails underneath. The oven actually sits up an inch off the bottom so you won't have to worry about the bottom getting hot (and it has a ceramic fire blanket insulating the bottom anyway). Check out this FAQ on Modifying a Maximus Oven for a Food Truck or Trailer.
How long will it take to have my Prime pizza oven delivered?
We typically ship our Maximus Oven from Authentic Pizza Ovens within 2-3 business days from the when the order is placed. The Maximus Pizza Oven ships from our warehouse in Houston, 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.
