Burns wood, cooks on brick, made of steel, and lives on your patio.
If you like your oven to live outdoors, burn wood, and make pizza, the Forno Toscano Margherita might earn a spot on your patio.
This wood-fired pizza oven is made in Italy, built mostly from standard steel (including the legs and painted dome) and stainless steel (including the door and chimney), while the 24x24x14-inch cooking chamber has a two-layer brick cooking surface and rock-based insulation.
Importer Forni USA has some vague and cliché ad copy on its website about the old world meeting the new, but you know what you're looking at: a brick-style oven that gets really hot, really fast (upwards of 600°F in under 15 minutes, according to this Forni USA infomercial), and maybe you like the way it looks. Va bene. It also has pull-out handles and wheels if you need to drag it around your verandah.
The Margherita is $2,399, or about 240 large cheese delivery pizzas, while the larger Mangiafuoco runs $2,999, or 417 DiGiorno Supremes.
