The outside of the oven is a weather resistant dome. Inside the oven a thick inner dome made from a unique refractory mixture which absorbs and also reflects heat inwards. The oven is fully insulated which means less fuel in use, longer heat retention once the fire is out, plus a cool external surface temperature.
The unibody metal base has a liner of firebrick and custom made tiles, underneath this a thick layer of insulation. The tiles absorb heat to provide a consistent temperature over the hearth and also provide a hot plate for frying and boiling on the front of the oven extending the cooking surface!
The Neo is a fusion of modern materials combined with a traditional design to provide you with a solution that looks great and performs like a dream!
A modular design means you can purchase only the components you require or the full package complete with stand, and tools! Everything you need to get started. Well, almost, you will need wood and a match to light the fire!
The outer shell is a substantial GRP cover next to that a thick layer of insulation followed by a refractory dome. On the hearth a layer of fire bricks, cast stones and underneath this another layer of insulation all enclosed by the unibody tray.
The oven is remarkably light for its size, total dry weight 115 kg. With hearth tiles removed 75Kg. The hearth stones (40kg) are removed when moving the oven then placed back in.
What’s in the full kit?
Our Neo kit contains everything you need to make great wood fire cooked food and of course incredible pizza!
The oven of course, comprised of a dome, chimney and coolie. The base has a lining of firebricks and shaped cast tiles which provides the cooking hearth.
An infrared thermometer, stand and two pizza peels (AKA pizza paddles) and a door.
Just provide a few logs a match and ingredients fabulous food will follow.
Incidentally our peels are made with an aluminum head and a wooden handle. These we believe are easier to use and more robust than wooden pizza peels. The small oven peel is specially made for us.
If you are having our stand then a firm base is needed. Grass will not support the weight it must be a solid foundation. Slabs, pavers, concrete, tarmac etc.
If you are not having our stand you will need a good strong base. A minimum of 800 by 1000mm and around 1000 to 1100 high. It needs to be strong enough to support the total combined weight 150kg and be heat resistant.
