Approximately one month ago I accidentally came across this Pizza Oven model YD-958 (asianproducts.com/product_8/Pizza-Maker_P11885434636855849.htm.) I Bought it at “Laws Auctions” in Wetherill Park (Sydney) for bargain price of AU $ 60.00 - they had 10 left on shelf. This oven is not so bad and could reach 350oC, but have only one element (top) and you could not achieve any charring on your dough. The other downfall is that once the temperature hit the maximum, automatically turns off and you have to wait for 4 minutes to restart.
After some researching, yesterday I went and bought Gasmate P0-100 gas pizza cooker (pivotstove.com.au/index.php/products/id/516) from Bunning’s for $386, 00 (I took advantage of their policy which state they will beat competitors price for 10%. “Stratco” has the same oven on sale for $429,00). Before I made purchase I contacted manufacturer to hear that the maximum this oven could operate is 340oC. As you all know this is around 90oC lower than recommended temperature for making authentic pizza Napoletana. As this oven has double wall I am thinking to remove the outer wall and fit the ceramic wool insulation blanket or K-woll blanket between the walls. Does anyone has any experience with insulating materials and advise how much temperature could be gained by doing this? I am also not sure if operating this oven at higher temperatures will damage its internals. I believe Inside walls are coated with vitreous enamel (Same like your standard home oven)
Thanks for any input.
