My guess is it is one of many cheap Chinese imports that look just like it.

Thanks, I'll probably take the budget Uuni  route for now,  and work on convincing other members of the household that a full  size oven  is 'needed '

Thanks, at c650/$950 that'll be too expensive for now.  Probably a good option once I've everyone hooked on home baked☺

It looks like a Chinese copy of the forno allegro

Front is too wide open, Pizza party is better.

The problem is that maybe they will never be hooked if the oven you spend 500gbp on isn't delivering nice pizzas.

From what I have seen here and know by experience is that the blackstone, the pizzaparty and the p134h are really good "cheap" options.

I have spent money on other cheaper options without success. Lost money...

My suggestion would be to go for any of the three above or buy a steel plate for your home oven. Depending on how hot it can get you will be able to make nice pizzas in the 3 min 30 range.

Thanks, ...500 would be above what I'd pay for an 'intro to pizza' oven.  So I think I'll go for the sub200 Uuni and then see.

Cheers for advice & suggestions

This seems like it might be perfect to pull off an 18" NY style pizza - I have a very small home oven so I have been looking for someway to cook a proper NY size pie - interested in what other may think - looking to cook at 550-600 degrees and have top and bottom balance.

23.6" x 23.6" wouldn't leave much room for fire with an 18" pizza.

+1 on the Uuni for an affordable hobby oven.  They just released the Uuni2-s with a stone bottom, looks pretty cool.  I have the Uuni2 and love it!
I don't make pizza every week (but I sure wish I did!!) but I look forward to using the Uuni often this season.

I use 4 of these ovens.
It is made in Braga Portugal, just like the Maximus is.  No Chinese stuf ;-)

My Pizza's are ready in about 90 sec. Oven is on temp. in just 20min/30min. Always use small pieces of wood, you want the flame, and not the 500degrees celcius.
I use my ovens as rentals, they are easily transported, verry fast in heating up and cool down you can remove all of the 18 chamotte stones and let them cool outside the oven. Visit my Instagram for more pictures https://www.instagram.com/pizzaovenrent/

PS The door is bigger, higher, but it has no extra roof, the chimney is at the front.
