http://www.bakerstonebox.com/  1,000 degrees for $129.00 is a bold statement. Not pushing it, but am very curious.

bruce9432,

You might want to do a forum search on bakerstonebox.

Interesting.  I did a forum search for bakerstonebox and bakerstone and got no hits other than this thread.  I did a search for baker stone box and got one other hit.  Perhaps it hasn't been discussed yet? 

Edit:  Looks like it was discussed somewhat in this thread http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,22322.msg226974.html#msg226974

Know what'd be neat. If you could easily flip one of these 2stones around and then launch. If the top stone cold maintain 850 for a few minutes that would be pretty good.

I just pre-ordered one.  I read through the threads, checked their website and info.  $129 with free shipping to me is worth giving it a shot, and I have a Weber-Genisis 330 grill that cranks out plenty of heat.  I'm mainly interested in NY/New Haven style pies baked around 700. I will report back after I receive the oven and bake a few pies.

Looking forward to hearing about it. It is too hot in the summer for me to want to use the oven inside. I made some pies on the grill last summer with moderate success (though not consistent). I wouldn't mind a more elegant solution.

I'll be very surprised if you can get 1000F above the hearth - or even 800F for that matter. Regardless, you should be able to make a good 2:15-2:30 pie at 750F or so which is where I think is where you will might end up.

650-700 with good balanced upper/lower heat would work for me. I do not plan on doing neapolitan.

Thats what Im thinking as well. In fact, Im hoping to maintain at just around the 650-700 mark.  Im not into the Neapolitan style, though will try one for fun after the oven arrives.  Ordered an infrared thermometer as well to track the temps on the bottom/top/sides.

According to their website, they are still in "preorder" stage.

Some of the pies shown on their site are very impressive. Like this one...

Did anybody buy this, and for how much?

My local hardware chain has it on sale this week for $129.   Don't think I've ever seen them carry it before so maybe this isn't really a sale price--think that's a typical Amazon-like price.

Any comments on it? How well does it work? Good bang for the buck? I have a 3-burner Thermos brand grill, I think it's a CharBroil knock-off. I usually make Granny-style or ciabatta recipe 18x13" half sheets in a Frigidaire gas convection range, haven't done round in a few years.

Thanks.

P.S. I did a search and read about 10 threads, most 2013...

I used mine one time and was somewhat satisfied. It made a better pizza then I could with my pizza stones and Weber Genesis gas grill mods.

I bought it when they were using Kickstarter for funding. After funding they made some sort of agreement with a distributor that had the end result of delaying delivery by close to a year. In the interim I bought a Blackstone which I have used dozens of times.  I probably will not use it again unless my Blackstone “buys the farm”

I have the bakerstone box.  I bought it when it was on kickstarter.  I have used it several times and it does get up to over 750 degrees on my bbq, gas.  That is with the top closed.  They say to use it with the top open but it does not get that hot that way.  I asked and they said there would be no damage or danger with the top closed.  The results I have gotten have been extremely satisfying.  For the ease of use, this is the closest I have been able to get to Neapolitan pies.  I am totally satisfied!  Dan

I do like several things about this product.  A simple dial on the thermostat is a good idea letting users know when it is hot enough to bake.  Kickstarter funded and $129 is a fine business model and great price.  The packaging, product simplicity, and videos are also quite nice.

Sure it isn't likely to be a 1-2 minute oven, but it doesn't claim to be.  Maybe a VolksOven.

I'll be looking forward to some pizza pictures when owners get some hands-on experience.

Dan, how large a pie have you made in this box, and do you remove your flavor bars from the grill to use this?
This seems promising.

I've baked a lot of pies on a modified grill, and I have a pretty good handle on the challenges it presents. If I was going to buy a grill-top oven, it would be this one, no question: http://www.mightypizzaoven.com/

Bert, the owner is a member here if you have any questions. He goes by MightyPizzaOven.

I've used it and was impressed with what it could do with only a short learning curve: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=20334.0

Bert has been able to get sub-2min bakes which is quite an accomplishment on a grill - you will know this if you have ever tried. http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=31690.msg314685#msg314685

There are lots of other posts on this oven here.

Thank you Craig.  I truly believe that there is no oven on the market today can do what I was able to do with MPO.

I sold and delivered my last oven out of the small batch of ovens I manufactured last year. I am not planning to manufacture more.

But, I am working on MPO2, it is bigger, lighter and hotter (literally).  I am planning to launch MPO2 on kickstarter again if I get the pricing and sourcing worked out.



Bert,
