Well, Mike about the Waring oven, unfortunately someone already purchased it. However there's a 208v Bakers Pride P44 for sale for $300, seller says it's as is, but I WON'T buy it unless he plugs it up and I can see the elements heat up.
Hopefully it'll perform well.

I think the elements on the 208v model will work on 220v but they will not preform the same (they have different Part Numbers if I remember correctly). I know you are in to hurry and get an oven but in your situation you might better served to wait until what you really want comes along (IMHO). Doing the kabuki to move and get the 2 circuit oven hooked into you dryer vent and unhooked will not be fun - Mike mentioned (weeks ago) someone was selling Waring on eBay and a member here purchased one - he said it was like new - maybe Mike knows if they still have any. I really think that is a much better option for you. BTW, I think some Costco business centers carry them - maybe you could check into that as an option - also look into the webrestaurant store - ding/dent store - they get ovens in all the time that are new, work great but might have a ding in them.

I thought dryer outlets where 208v, oh ok. This is complicated, so homes don't have 208v outlets?

I looked at the ebay seller, sold out, only the larger ones are available.

Voltages can be tricky to understand - as the electricity moves farther down the house wiring the resistance (of the wire) drops some of the voltage, the thinner the wire and the longer the run the more voltage is dropped. That is why sometimes you see 110V or 115V listed when at the breaker panel it will generally measure ~120. Same thing with 220v circuits - but 208 is not the same as 220v. 208 is a common voltage used in other countries (I think Mexico is one of them).

With older Bakers Pride ovens it might not be a problem since the heating elements are just very thin highly resistive wires in a insulting material (usually ceramic) with a metal cover - same principle mentioned above, magnified a lot. Voltage comes in one end of the heating element - a ton of voltage is dropped across the heating element (that voltage drop converts the energy into heat) - the heating element glows hot. In newer ovens the heating elements are the same but newer ovens may have other electrical components that are more sensitive and are not designed to work with the voltages well below what the oven was designed to operate on (I would need to do a total design review to be sure, depending on the oven). In the older ovens it was just some lights, switches and analog temperature controllers. They did not care about the voltage as much, maybe the light would be a tiny bit dimmer or the element would be a little less hot. I could go on for weeks (I did teach things like this for 4 years) but I'm sure you have already stopped reading so I will stop typing. Sorry for the long post but if you did not stop reading happy to answer any questions you might have....

I researched it a bit, apparently if I where to use it, I risk over heating it. Long story short it will run at a 25% increased wattage
So basically a no go...Some 220v elements are also NLA so I couldn't even convert it.

Which recipe did you use? Iím going through this thread and see a lot of variations.


Hi Mike, over the years I have tried a lot of recipes Iím the NY thread. All worked well if me as the cook did my job. At properly following the method set by the recipe.
 I came upon your thread when I tried to dial in my omnican oven which is a knock off of the warring oven you have been so successful with.
 I do not mak much NY pizza. When I git my breville oven I wanted to try all typed of pizza from it.
  My Neapolitan turned out well. Detroit style was pretty good. The NY sucked. So, I decided to pull up your thread and looked at your different recipes and liked the looks of you high hydration straight dough.
 With your help I have a recipe that I am happy with.
 Sunday I made a batch and used it today at the 72 hour mark.
  I had a mobile pizza operator Art Napoli from pizza 800 visit me . He had seen the instagram posts and was skeptical that the pizzas were coming from the breville oven.
 So we baked a NY with your recipe. He was plesently surprised by the pizza.
 Art is the kind of person that tells it like it is. And to get a good review from him too me means a lot.  I did take your advice and pulled the pizza a little earlier then I personally like. Glad I did the taste and texture was very good.
 Not sure why I am busting into your thread like this. Other to thanks you for your direction!!

The eBay one is gone and I dont think they have other ones. But the Warings do pop up from time to time.
