P134H vs GGF Micro
« on: September 04, 2013, 04:47:08 AM »
Hello folks,

I'm short before ordering a small electric pizza oven and I have finalized my search to two ovens. The P134H (Effeuno) and the Micro A (GGF).
Since I'm living in germany both ovens are below 480 EUR (GGF Micro 449 EUR, P134H 480 EUR).

What I found so far is:

Pro P134: up to 500C, glass in window - Con: larger case, smaller internal space, higher price
Pro GGF Micro: up to 500C, larger internal space, lower price, smaller case - Con: no window

It's more pro for the GGF actually and most important, I found a german reseller so I could have the oven delivered within the next two days (instead of a month wait for the P134)

What are your opinions?

I always thought the glass in the door was a pretty useless feature, until I bought a countertop model with one and a lighted interior -  if you are cranking up the top heat, the cheese goes from bubbly to brown to burnt in a very short time, and it turns out having the glass door was nice because you could watch the cheese turn and pull it out at almost the exact right time. BTW, even with a light and a glass door, if it has a low clearance, you only see the front half or so of the pizza, and sometimes the colors don't look right because the red of the heating element can make the cheese look darker than it is, but you get used to that.  I have also had countertops with solid doors, you end up checking on the pie more often, which cools down the chamber a little, but not an overwhelming problem - you tend to just keep a closer track of the time, and it takes a little longer to get the pie finished in the one without glass, since you keep checking on it.     So either one would be fine, I would give a slight edge to the one with the glass door - but not sure if it is enough to offset having a local rep.  The one with the larger case probably has better insulation, so I would hold out for that if you do a lot of pizzas at one time.  If you are only doing a few, that won't make much difference.

Hi meatboy,


I prefer the door of the Micro A, it has also more room inside if you want to make big pies, downside less powerfull top element, but you can always change it for a powerfull one, like the_blob    >:D

P134H 1700W top heating element for 405X405X110
Micro A 1100W top heating element for 350x410x90

Thanks a lot!

Sub, the pictures are great! Both oven reach ~500C without modding, don't they?

Yeah, more or less, the P134H thermostat knob goes only to 450

P134H thermostat JUMO 602031/80

Micro A thermostat EGO 55.19082.802


For the P134H you can look this thread: Effeuno (F1) p134h PF: Test comparativo delle temperature impostate e misurate, ... impariamo a conoscere la belva

If you want to do Neapolitan pizza, go for the P134H

Make sure you post a full review.  There are not many places where you can get an in depth review of countertop pizza ovens
