The Fontana Advantage
The Fontana Forni family, being the original designers of these stainless steel portable outdoor wood ovens, has enjoyed a tremendous response from households and professional chefs all over the world during the past 30 years. Naturally, because of this incredible success, many have attempted to imitate our designs and have failed. Fontana Forni remains the clear leader in home pizza ovens for a number of reasons. In addition to our durable materials and the stylishly clean appearance of our wood fired ovens, we offer a wide range of wood burning ovens to fulfill the varying specifications of our customers. Our most popular model is considered the original portable wood fired oven and remains one of our best-sellers today. This oven performs equally as well as any traditional brick pizza oven and is commonly used for ‘brick oven’ pizzas, breads, roasts, poultry, and vegetables.
Manufactured using cast iron, steel, and stainless steel, all of our ovens are robust, heavy duty units that can be enjoyed for years of dependable use. Our ovens are extremely practical, easy to use and efficient. One model heats up in 20 minutes and maintains heat for hours, others consume 5 times less wood than a traditional brick oven. We even integrate convection fans that circulate air on some outdoor oven models. The benefits of convection include faster, more even cooking, as the circulating air helps regulate even temperatures throughout the cooking chambers.
For those with limited outdoor space, we offer a small outdoor oven that can suit patios, terraces and balconies. In addition to ovens, we offer a variety of grills and accessories to complete, enhance and expand your outdoor culinary adventures. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Fontana Forni USA also offers wholesale pricing to resellers. We would love to speak with you!
Wood Fired Oven Accessories
There are two basic types of outdoor ovens. Our first and original “outdoor pizza oven” provides a separate chamber that is used to build the fire and create heat. The fire chamber is located below the cooking chamber and heat rises around the upper cooking compartment. The benefits of this wood fired oven design include a clean, smoke and ash free cooking area. Additionally, this outdoor oven design allows for multiple racks for simultaneously cooking numerous foods.
Our second wood burning oven design (shown at left) includes cooking and baking in the same chamber as the fire! The process is very similar to our other outdoor ovens except the cooking heat radiates directly from the fire, creating very fast cook times for wood fired pizzas and more. In this type of wood burning pizza oven, you build your fire directly on the cooking service and on one side or to the rear of the oven. Once the fire is stoked and the coals are hot, you simply cook and bake directly adjacent to the embers and flames. This model, when used as an outdoor pizza oven, can cook a pizza in as little as 2 minutes. Another of the many benefits of this design is that it pre-heats in just 10-15 minutes. See video here
