I just purchased the Inferno Oven and overall I am very pleased with it.  The positives> Heats up very quickly; simple design (not a lot can go wrong with it); Heats to 900 deg F.; Retains heat really well.  The negatives>  Very small opening 13-14" pie is the max.; You need to buy some kind of cover because it and the moving parts are effected by wet weather; Sometimes it gets hard to manage the air flow to both the top of the oven and the stone. 

Bottom line the machine puts out a really nice pie (from NY to Nap.) and I would give it a thumbs up.

ERASMO,

I use a NY Style recipe with All Trumps.  I typically bake at 650-700 deg F.  The pie is a somewhat charred NY Style looking pie.
I've yet to try Caputo and jack up the temp., but it's on my to do list.

I bought the 13" pizza grill 2stone last year and this year I sprang for the 15 1/2" pizza grill.  If I had to do it over again, I would have bought the 15 1/2" from the get-go.  It works like a dream.  The 13" cooks fine, but maneuvering your paddle to get the pizza to the stone is much more difficult, even though you may only be working with a 12" pizza.  Both work great at cooking pizza, but the 15 1/2" is just so much easier to use.

thanks, you just made my mind up on grill size.

You can find some of my 2stone creations in here:

Most of them were using my first 2stone which was the 13" version.  I much prefer the larger 2stone.  Easier to get the pies in and out for 1 thing.

Thx for posting the link.  Some decent looking pies there.  Is the bigger oven you have a stand alone unit or does it sit on the grill as well?

Also, does the flame come in direct contact with the bottom fibrament stone?  I need a less conductive stone for my MBE and was considering ordering a custom cut fibrament stone but their website says that it's not a good idea to have direct flame on it without using their flame diverter.

Tran I say just get a WFO.

Alright this is what you do. Send your wife on a mini vacation. While she's gone, start the build, foundation and stand. When she gets back be like "Ooh how'd that get there". She wont care trust me... :-D

Like my plan.

Yeah that might work. :). Here's another good one I got from another forum.  This only works if you don't have a bike already. Go out and get a few brochures for a new bike and price them out as well. Lay the brochures out on the coffee table and wait for her response. Undoubtedly she'll try and talk you out of it b/c of how dangerous they are. Then say,"well I could always stick to pizza making but I may need a WFO. Do you think that would be better than a motorcycle?"

Bso, I'm stI'll having fun trying to figure my MBE out. Maybe when I get bored of it in a month or two. ;)

That one sounds good to. I think you might get bored with it faster than you think.

Hi
         I'm looking at a 2stone oven and would like some input from anyone about how they work

        Good bad or whatever...........the thing looks good on paper..thanks

Bought a 2stone about 5 months ago and have been very pleased with it. It gets hot fast, retains heat well, can survive high temps, and most importantly, has not cracked when I put a pizza on it to cook. However it was fairly pricey but I guess you get what you pay for.  Awesome pics BTW Ernie
