Why would I buy a PizzaOvensNmore oven?
The best oven. Quality traditional oven at an unmatched price. We provide the best commercial quality, fair priced ovens in Australia. You get fantastic service to boot. And with ovens it is all about holding heat; ‘ours do this so well’. Why else would pizzarias and cafés use our product! Do not be fooled by the importance of heat retention and also our ovens look fantastic with our unique and effective smoke chamber, so we have the looks and perform as well.
Q) Do you use chicken wire and mortar to cover your domes like others on the market?
A) No. A good oven is one that holds heat and you can manage the temperature, even after being fired up all day; the outside should only be warm. A thin layer of mortar will not do it, you lose too much heat, and need to feed wood in all the time. Our ovens are constructed with thick domes; insulation, sisolation and to add to that we put bricks on top. Bricks are solid and a terrific insulator, so much easier to lay, you do not need to be a bricklayer to do it, and much easier than trying to shape a huge mass of sand and cement!
Q) So that means I need to supply bricks and sand?
A) Yes, but they are so cheap to get locally, you save money on the oven kit because we do not need to ship you the easy stuff! We are supplying you the important bits. The bricks sand and cement for a Sinatra will cost you $100; any solid brick will do; you might have some at home! In fact, I build ovens for a living; the only time I touch a trowel is to smooth the surface a bit, otherwise I use a mallet and rubber gloves!. Another point to consider – if you were to use mortar to insulate your oven properly, you would need 100mmthickness minimum to do it effectively. Do you realise how many bags of sand this is, it is about 20 bags for a small oven !
Q) But I am not a brick layer!
A) No matter what kit you buy from anyone, you need to be a bit hands-on. Brick laying is easier to build a wall than mortar!! With bricks you will get a better job, quicker and easier, just be patient and call me any time; Do not be fooled into thinking because everything is in a kit that it is easier! Pizza ovens are not IKEA flat packs, you want a good oven for a good price, I will help you all the way. And we are not interested in competing in the volume market; we focus on true quality !
Q) Do you custom build ovens on site?

A) No it is really easy; just trowel on and get it as even as you can, then a damp sponge in a circular motion to even it out.

A) Since we use bricks just a minimum, 5mm is required, the bricks are doing all the insulation and so much easier than applying 100mm or sand and cement!!
