Ooni Karu 16 or Gozney Roccbox?
« on: September 09, 2021, 06:31:44 AM »
Hi all!

Hoping for some advice from those far more experienced than myself!

New to the 'proper' pizza making game, and trying to decide on either the Ooni Karu 16, or the Gozney Roccbox. Does anyone have any thoughts?

I think I will primarily be using gas - I like the idea of using wood or coal, but I have a young child, and another on the way, so the simplicity of gas will almost certainly make me use the pizza oven a lot more.

Look forward to hearing some sage advice!

Thanks all

Jamie

I'm in the same boat, based on my research, the Roccbox might have fewer quirks.

But having a side burner with the Koda is an advantage.

Still shopping around, trying to decide if I go with a larger oven straight away (https://backyardbrickovens.com/product/forno-fun-countertop-ovens/)  or start with a smaller oven like the Koda, or maybe even the Karu 16

I don't think the Roccbox has any quirks? Adam and many others use the Roccbox for catering and pop ups.

Would go with something a little bit larger than the Forno Bello oven you linked if looking at going to a larger oven. Although its about 24x21, the floor space gets quickly taken away by wood ash. This makes it not much of a step-up from the Karu 16 pizzawise, without looking at quality of cook.

My oven is about 24x24 in cooking area and with a homemade gas burner its enough to make two 11-inch pizzas at a time. The largest non-pizza item I made in the oven on wood was a 17 lb turkey (bad). The next was two 4 lb roast chickens (excellent). Still wish sometimes to have gone slightly bigger

The price on the Ooni goes up $100 on Oct.1.  I ordered one last night.
