The Igneus Classico pizza oven is perfect for families and has been built for outdoor use. You will be able to cook two 12” pizzas in 60 seconds. Alternatively, it can also hold two large roasting trays, if you want to roast meats/ veg instead of cooking pizzas. The Classico only takes 15-20 minutes to get up to the ideal pizza cooking temperature (400°C). With an internal cooking area of 60x60cm, the Classico has a fantastic cooking capacity.
There is a built-in thermometer on the front left of the oven will help you keep track of internal temperature. However we recommend purchasing an infrared digital thermometer as it helps you know the brick temperature more accurately.
You can help maintain the heat within the Classico by using the damper system on the chimney. As well as this you can also use the removable door and adjust the air vents. This is particularly helpful if you are wanting to slow cook your food. However any food that isn’t pizza will need cooking in some form of cast iron cookware.
The firebricks used in the Igneus Classico are 28mm thick and are made to retain the heat from the wood fire. As with all Igneus pizza ovens, the Classico is wood fired. It is fuelled by kiln dried hardwood logs. We recommend using kiln dried silver birch as it is quick to light and burns at a high heat. More dense hardwoods will take longer to heat up the pizza oven.
Weighing only 45kg, this oven can go anywhere in your garden; moreover, with the firebricks removed, it weighs only 20kg. The lightweight nature of the Classico means that you can move it around your garden easily to get the best performance. Additionally, you can place the oven on any table top surface (apart from granite and glass). Furthermore, there are four wooden legs underneath that keep the oven a safe distance from whatever surface it is placed on. Notably, we have two stand options available: a wooden stand and a custom stainless steel trolley stand.
The Igneus pizza oven range is hand made in Portugal. The Classico is by far the most popular oven in the range due to its cooking capacity, speed of cooking and affordability. It comes with a 1 year warranty from the date of purchase. If you are in mainland UK, we also offer free delivery to your home.
