So much material corroded away on the bushing and door hinge bars I ordered new ones

I'd think that somehow you wound up with one of the ones I got rid of, but I know that they both went to Haiti.  You didn't buy it in Haiti, did you? ;)

Just pulled my handle out of the tub of oxalic acid - that stuff worked great - now I just need to polish and wax so it does not rust again. Just made some dough - getting close  ;D

I would really like to see how well this model works. I'm already checking Craigslist NYC for one.

I'll be cooking in it tonight or tomorrow night depending on how much time I have today - I'll post pictures here.... - If I had a choice I'd look for a P22 model vice this one since the P22 will allow you to cook a 20 inch pies with room to spare. If you have 220 I go with that version also.

I don't expect it to cook as well as a full size production pizza oven - but I'm hoping it is better than my home oven, plus it will allow me to try some bakes in the 600-700 degree range.

I started doing some research on the used  M02T, P18, P22, parts sources etc. I agree 220V is most desirable.

 :-D

Just turned it on 5 min ago - funny, I did pull out the fire extinguisher - just to have it handy.....

PS. I really wanted to floor it (all the way to 700 degrees) -- but I decide to do the first cook at 625 in case I need to do more than the minor (sugar) recipe adjustment I already made....

Sorry everyone - ate too much pizza and fell asleep before posting - pizza coma  :-D

I posted a bunch of photos and info here:

https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=26286.msg507034#msg507034

But here is a teaser - the oven cooked great - held temps for almost 15 mins before cycling the heat on and came up to temp very quick. I was amazed how even the oven cooked back to front and side to side - I did rotate once but I really did not have to.

Norm, great looking pizza.  For inquiring minds, you say it came up to temp quick -  care to put that in terms of minutes.  I think I posted elsewhere that on my 120 volt model, when I added the extra thick 1 inch stones, it took about an hour or more to pre heat.

Thanks, Barry ;D

The oven was in my garage (and the temp was 55 degrees). The oven took about ~40 min to get up to 625 degrees (from 55 degrees) - once it got there, it was rock solid - since it was my first time cooking with it I let it sit for a full hour before I started making my pizza - plus it had a tiny amount of smoke & smell from all the cleaning product I used. It started to run clean after about 10 min more at 625.

During that last 20 min I don't remember the elements ever coming on (which amazed me). I even opened the door for a second to read the top stone with my IR gun - it was 624 degrees (right on the money). Once I put the pie in it took a few mins and it cycled on for a min or two - went off and didn't not come back on until the pie was about done (and I had opened the door at least two times to peek at the pie's progress).

I'll pay better attention next time - I was a little freaked out cooking in it for the first time - plus, stuff like where to put the peel down (workflow) was a learning experience - next time I'll clean my workbench off first  :-D

PS. stones were the originals - I did not measure them but I'd guess they are 1/2 inch.....

Nice slice.
