For those of you who have used the Pizza Party oven: The videos that I have seen all seem to have the door closed during cooking, at least when not attending to the pie. Most WFOs that I have seen in opperation have the door open (off) during cooking. I am assuming that due to the size of the PP oven, it needs the door closed,(on), to retain the oven heat. Is that correct?

I unboxed and assembled the oven tonight. First, the packing was great, this thing came all the way from Italy and not a scratch or dent on anything. Everything that's painted is covered with protective film. The oven is also very light (with bricks removed), my wife and I had no problems getting it up to our deck. The aluminum cart needed assembly, but it's very nice and won't rust, again, I'm very impressed. The sun was setting just as I finished putting it together, so I'll post more pictures and comments tomorrow.

Looks like a neat little oven.  Can you confirm my suspicion that this oven has an grate that the fire sits on with air fed from underneath?

Yes, it does, although you probably don't need to use it (it's removable).

I don't think that is what Jeff was asking about. I think that device is intended to keep the coals from spilling onto the limited floor space - much as Omid does with the piece of steel he uses in his oven at home.

I believe Jeff was asking about air fed from below the fire through the floor as you would see in a coal oven. There was discussion a while back about the Maximus oven which outwardly appears to be all but identical to the Pizza Party oven. Some folks were of the opinion that the Maximus oven functioned like a non-catalytic wood stove which achieves very efficient combustion by being fed preheated air (though not from below the fire but rather into the flames). While the cross section may appear similar, the oven has next to nothing in common with the function of a non-catalytic stove.

Then, in that case, no it doesn't. There are six identical bricks that make up the floor of the oven, no grate, no bottom vent.

Yup, Craig pretty much nailed it.  You are going to want to use the andiron/divider supplied with the oven, another plus for this oven that it is included and the fact that they are aware of it's importance shows there is a lot of design work put into this oven. 

I'm just trying to figure out where the air is entering the oven when the door is closed.  The videos make it clear that plenty of air is getting in somewhere, I'm just wondering where.

In one of the company videos, the door is show from the back. There are two "feet" that attach to the inside bottom of the door allowing its opening to be adjusted, hence regulating airflow going in.

If you look around 7:20 in the video posted in reply #1 to this thread, you will see the door looks completely closed then is taken off and there is a large fire inside.

Hi!!!
the pizza party  works very well. Heats up in 30 minutes  at 450 temp  vs the 3/5 hours of a traditional WFO.  The metal sides on top works fine and allows heat to grow quickly


massimocurro, Thank you for the videos. The pies look great ! If I may ask, how would you describe the Pizza Party oven compared to a more traditional WFO. Specifically is there any down side to having metal sides and top as compared to more traditional WFO materials?

I hope that's 450 C. (850 F.), because if it's 450 F. then I'm gonna be very disappointed!

the first 20-30 minutes, the fire needs to be done in the center of the cooktop, to heat good the cooktop, and then move the fire on one side
wood consumption: only 6lb/h
