Fontana Forni or Quintessential Pizza Ovens
« on: December 19, 2009, 02:19:59 PM »
I want to put a wood burning pizza oven in my new outdoor kitchen.  I am interested in the ones from Fontana Forni or Quintessential which have a separate chamber for the wood.  Has anyone had one of these and do you recommend them?  If you did, did you have any problems with rust?  (The Quintessential website stated that their unit will rust.)

why don't you look at wood fire pizza ovens like fornobravo or similar...

One of the reasons for looking at the Fontana Forni or Quintessential Pizza Ovens is the space - I am putting it in an outdoor kitchen which is attached to my house.  The "compactness" of these units make them a better fit for how I want to arrange things.  Also, the separate  chamber for the wood burning may (or may not) be a plus.  Please advise!!!

I have cooked in the quintessential oven and it did a nice job with pizza.  It does tend to get some rust on it and requires a little touch up from time to time.
