...and behold came across Remco Ind. who has the oven....progress???
First of all, if they really wanted to sell some of these ovens, they'd show a great pizza coming out of it. I've watched all the videos and nothing has seemed to be all that impressive. It also doesn't help that the people shooting these videos have been really bad about not actually showing closeups of the finished pies.
I'm also incredibly skeptical when it comes to recovery time. They talk about being able to bake one pizza after the next, but, unless I see great pizzas being put in and coming out quickly, I'm not buying it.
These are probably 14-15" pizzas and they use an infrared element at the back that extends to only half the stone. Translation: No 20" pies in this bad boy- it's a big stone, but you're limited to working within the radius of the circle.
I'd also like to know, beyond the gas usage, what kind of electricity these ovens are using. It almost looks like the flames in the back are the only thing using gas (and pretty much all cosmetic), while everything else might be electric. That would be incredibly misleading for them to pull a stunt like that, but, from the hyped way the videos are done, I wouldn't put them past it. At a minimum, the stone has to be rotated with an electric motor- and they don't talk about that energy consumption.
