I like that the Pizza Que is so small, portable and can be packed away when not using. So far I have placed in on top of a plastic recycling bin with a 1/4 plywood to create a level surface. I was worried about a fire hazard with either the plastic or wood. As it turns out, there is very little to no heat below the oven. When I place my hand below the oven, I don't feel any heat.
