Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven makes outdoor picnics fun

rapid-wood-fire-pizza-ovenI don’t know about you, but I for one absolutely love to have my food piping hot. As in really, really hot, fresh out of the oven or the wok, depending on which particular cuisine that you are fond of. Picnics can be fun, especially when the weather is absolutely beautiful and you have prepared a fair bit of food to share with your loved one(s). The thing is, the food that you bring to picnics are more often than not no longer fresh as though it was just fixed or cooked in the kitchen, so cold sandwiches and the ilk tend to be the food of choice for many. What if I were to tell you that it is possible to bake your own pizza in the woods?

This is what the $2,700 Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven is all about. Handcrafted in Marche, Italy, the Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven is an outdoor wood-burning oven which can be ready to cook in a matter of just 15 minutes. It will be different from other typical wood burning ovens which require hours of preheating, as this superior oven’s whole cooking chamber has been insulated with basalt, which is a dense, volcanic rock that retains 10 times additional heat compared to the clay or brick that is used in traditional ovens. The oven itself will heat up to 800° F while the domed cooking chamber will result in a natural convection which circulates heat evenly, so that one can cook Neapolitan-style pizza in a matter of three minutes. Now this is pretty neat, don’t you think so?
