Choose A Stainless Steel Pizza Oven With These Features

When shopping for a stainless steel pizza oven to set up in an outdoor space such as your deck or porch, it will quickly become apparent that these ovens can vary considerably from model to model. It's important to understand the features that each model of oven possesses so that you can choose the right one. Here are a few features that you'll want to look for when you're evaluating different stainless steel pizza ovens to determine which one you wish to buy.


A lot of stainless steel pizza ovens have thermometers, but there are some models that aren't equipped with this feature. It's important to know the temperature when you're cooking pizza. While it's technically possible to attain this information with a handheld infrared thermometer, it's far easier to just choose a model of oven that has a built-in thermometer. Some thermometers are easier to read than others, especially from several feet away. When possible, you'll want one that you can clearly read at a quick glance.

Wood Storage

You'll need to build a fire in the pizza oven before you start to cook, which means that you'll need to use several small pieces of wood. It's handy if you choose an oven that has a built-in storage shelf for the wood. It will allow you to keep a supply of wood handy so that you don't have to go elsewhere to grab it when it's time to build a fire. When your oven's temperature starts to decrease, you can quickly reach down and grab another piece of wood to add and keep the temperature high.

Brick Floor

Even though portions of this type of pizza oven are made from stainless steel, you'll want to choose a model that has an oven floor that is made of brick or another comparative material. Brick holds heat very well, which will allow the interior of the oven to stay hot even if your fire is starting to die. A model that has a rack-style floor may not hold enough heat to give you the cooking results that you want. While you could always use a pizza stone in this type of oven, this means that you'd have the extra expense of buying the pizza stone and the hassle of storing it. A model with a brick oven floor will make things simpler and easier for you.
