The Igneus Bambino, is the medium-sized oven in the Igneus range. Like all Igneus ovens, it relies solely on wood logs as its fuel source. Moreover, the Bambino boasts the remarkable ability to cook a 14” pizza in a mere 60 seconds. It takes 10-15+ minutes to reach the optimum pizza cooking temperature.
Wood Fired Cooking
To get that delicious wood fired flavour, you will use kiln-dried hardwoods logs as your fuel in the Bambino. We highly recommend opting for kiln-dried silver birch due to its quick ignition and ability to maintain a high heat. It’s worth noting that if you use a denser wood, you should expect a longer wait to reach pizza cooking temperature.
Built in thermometer
Additionally, the Bambino comes equipped with a built-in thermometer situated on the top left side of the oven. This thermometer allows you to monitor the temperature within the cooking chamber as you prepare your culinary delights. For a more precise temperature reading, we recommend purchasing an infrared digital thermometer to measure the heat of the firebricks accurately.
Furthermore, the Igneus Bambino features a removable door, which allows you to retain the heat in the cooking chamber. This feature enables you to cook foods at lower temperatures and utilize embers effectively. What’s more, the Bambino’s versatility extends beyond pizza, as it can also accommodate large baking trays or roasting tins. Allowing you to cook roasts, potatoes, lasagnas, vegetables, and a wide array of other dishes.
Notably, the Bambino is a handcrafted masterpiece hailing from Portugal, meticulously crafted by pizza oven experts. It is constructed from marine-grade stainless steel and features a powder-coated aluminium canopy. The oven is thoughtfully designed to be fully insulated, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.
Weighing a mere 35kg, the Igneus Bambino is exceptionally lightweight, making it a potential portable option for outdoor cooking enthusiasts. Furthermore, for even greater ease of transportation, the weight can be further reduced to a mere 17kg by removing the fire bricks. This feature ensures that you can take your Bambino with you to various locations without any significant hassle or strain.
In addition to its manageable weight, the Bambino offers another practical advantage for transport: the chimney is detachable and can be conveniently placed inside the oven during transportation. This thoughtful design allows you to make the most of the available space and simplifies the process of moving the oven to different cooking locations.
