About The Mangiafuoco Wood Oven

We named this outdoor pizza oven after the fictional character Mangiafuoco, the larger-than-life director and puppet master in a classic Italian fairy tale — and we believe you’ll find it to be as robust as its namesake. Like its smaller cousin, the Margherita, the Mangiafuoco was designed from the ground up to cook perfect, Italian-style pizza. But its larger dimensions give you added capacity to prepare meals for extended families and larger events. And because it bears the Fontana name, you can feel confident that the Mangiafuoco will be easy to set up, easy to maintain and will perform flawlessly for years.

Fontana Convenience

  • Easy setup lets you go from delivery to delicious in just minutes.
  • But if you need to move or remodel, the Mangiafuoco is completely portable.
  • The oven consumes exponentially less wood than a traditional brick oven, making it easy on your budget and the environment.
  • Heats up in 15 minutes and cooks evenly and quickly every time.
  • Cook directly on the heating stone for old-world results in a modern, easy-to-use oven.

Fontana Advantages

  • Maximum Insulation: A full 12 centimeters of natural rock-spun wool insulation surrounds the cooking chamber to maximize heat retention and cooking efficiency.
  • Heavy-duty Construction: Solid-weld construction — 3-millimeter-thick stainless steel reinforced with a 5-millimeter-thick Corten steel panel — provides years of durable, rust-free performance.
  • Innovative Design: Our unique cooking chamber — domed back-to-back and side-to-side — eliminates hot spots and ensures uniform heat distribution. And our innovative design allows smoke to exit even when the door is closed for maximum heat retention and consistent cooking temperatures.
  • Superior Results: The smallest details can make a big difference. Fontana ovens include a damper control for maximum heat retention and more complete combustion.
  • Handcrafted: Fontana ovens are made entirely in Italy by skilled artisans using the finest, most durable materials.
  • Long-lasting Performance: We electro-galvanize our metals before powder-coating, providing superb protection against corrosion.

  • Amazing Oven, just an illustration of how well insulated it is!!
    Review by Peter Spande / (Posted on 2/8/2016)
    I'm really enjoying my Mangiafuoco. I took a picture of the oven last night (I live in New York) which illustrates the amazing insulation in the oven. The roof was completely blanketed with snow somewhere between 400-500F and virtually no snow melting off the top (it did fall as a whole around 800f but very little actually melted.)

    Thanks again,
    Pete

Love it!
We bought the Mangiafuoco in May 2017. The order process and delivery were super easy. Set up was a breeze with a few strong friends to do the final lift. We absolutely love the oven. Great times with family and friends and getting everyone involved in the process. Pizzas are terrific and we also use it to roast vegetables make some fruit desserts and even a turkey.I put off buying the oven for a few years, so sorry I did. Wish I would have made the investment five years ago but so glad I finally did. It is worth the money to have such good times with family and friends.Thank you to the treat people at Fontana Forni. They make a great product and their service is exceptional.Rob Rossi

So good I bought two
I bought one for a vacation home on a lake and it worked so well that I had to have a second for our main home. It heats up fast: 750deg in 30 minutes. I have cooked pizza, pork chops, sausage, chicken, vegetables, fish, steak and bread in the oven. We use a cast iron skillet for cooking the meat and vegetables. All come out delicious. The wood roasted juicy flavor is great. The oven is well made and easy to assemble. Fontana is extremely responsive. I called them up with a few questions and they were great. They enjoy talking about their ovens. It's enjoyable to cook with, especially surrounded by friends and family. I highly recommend this oven. I bought two.

Amazing oven
This oven is amazing. I've cooked not only pizzas but grilled ribs, roasted potatoes and chickens and everything in between. Seems really good quality, the front door has discolored a bit but i'm guessing that's normal wear and tear. Also if there is direct sunlight exposure the outside will also be very hot so be careful.The delivery was a little bit rocky with several miss-scheduled failed attempts and poor coordination. Kirk was quick to response to my questions but the delivery vendor was very unreliable, i hope this was the exception.Assembly was easy (thanks Kirk for posting the videos on youtube for assembly) and if you follow fontanaforniusa in instagram they also have a ton of great recipes to try.I would highly recommend this oven to anyone wanting to get into wood fired cooking

love my Mangiafuoco!
I have had my oven for just over a year now and love it. I estimate that I have fired it up about three dozen times, making mostly pizza but an occasional chicken dish, salmon on a cedar plank and some fruit desserts. Everything tastes great and guests love the mystique of cooking by fire. I have learned a few lessons along the way. I build my fire in the location where the pizza will eventually be placed. I get the temp to 800 degrees (all my hardwood is super dry which helps) in about 20 minutes. I then move the fire to the left, sweep the floor and place the pizza where the fire once sat. I find this bubbles the crust almost instantly (and you have to turn the pizza in 45 seconds) but the first two pies really cook well. By then the floor has cooled ever so slightly and the temp registers closer to 700 degrees. I reposition the fire back in the center for 5-8 minutes while we are enjoying the first two pies and then start the process over again. This approach works best for us.

EXCELLENT PIZZA OVEN
I bought the Mangiafuoco oven for my newly remodeled outdoor kitchen having never used a pizza oven before. Other than one practice burn to make sure I could get the fire lit and get the oven up to temperature I used the oven for the very first time as part of a progressive party with two other couples. The pizza was amazing right from the start. I burnt the edges of my very first pizza not realizing just how quickly it cooks, but afterwards it became very intuitive how long to cook each pie, when to turn, etc... I have since used the oven three more times and each time as been a rousing success. Set up is easy as I place a few cubes of Green Egg fire starter under a structure of full size split hard wood, light it and walk away. I initially had a difficult time finding hard wood but eventually discovered a local orchard who sold me a 4x4x3 foot bin of cut up apple or peach tree for only $50. Much cheaper than ordering wood from Amazon. Ultimately this has been a fantastic addition to our outdoor kitchen. It is beautiful to look at, easy to use, and makes some of the best pizza I've ever had.

Beautiful Oven
First time using it was successful. But there were no specific operating instructions included with the oven. I had to go on YouTube to find out how to use it. A DVD with quality instructions would be beneficial. I got a great DVD with an espresso machine. For this kind of money I would expect the same.

Thank you for the favorable review. We also appreciate your valuable feedback about the operating instructions. We're glad that you were able to find our YouTube channel with the instructional videos. We are considering including reference to our online instructional materials with the ovens as we ship them out.

The oven is harder to put together then shown to be. The oven takes longer to heat up and takes more wood then in the explanation. The pizzas also take closer to 25 min to cook

Question :
Hello, I was wondering how far the Mangiafouco oven must be placed away from combustable materials (in this case, a wood fence). Thank you so much!
1 ANSWER(S)
ANSWER :
The ovens need to be placed a couple of inches away from combustible materials. Since our ovens are insulated with 12cm of insulation, they will become warm to the touch during use, but not hot.

Question :
Sorry to ask so many questions in a single post: 1; Can the oven be placed directly on a granite counter top? Does the undersurface become hot when in use and damage the granite? 2. If installed in an outdoor grill island can a refrigerator be installed underneath or will there by significant heat transfer from the pizza oven when in use that can damage the refrigerator below? 3. If not under roof cover is there a chance it will rust? Thanks!
1 ANSWER(S)
ANSWER :
The ovens can be placed on granite. The countertop unit has 4 heat resistant feet that screw in each corner. This leaves 1/2"-3/4" of air space between the oven and the countertop. There will be some heat transfer, but the units are also insulated beneath.They are made for outdoor use like any other grill. As long as it is kept clean and not scratched, they hold up very well in the elements. We also carry covers that help keep it looking new longer.

Yes, we have had several customers use it as a build in unit. However, we recommend the stainless steel version just in case humidity ever gets trapped between the building materials and the roof of the oven.

Question :
How many 10 or 12 inch pizzas can each model make?
1 ANSWER(S)
ANSWER :
Once the fire is in the models (which takes up about 8"). The usable floor space is:16" x 24" for the Margherita 24" x 24" for the Mangiafuoco 24" x 32" for the Marinara.You can fit 2, 4, or 6 pizzas depending on the model. That said, I think you will find you will not cook more that a couple at a time because they cook so quickly. And, part of your control in using a wood fired oven is moving your food closer to or further away from the fire. I hope this helps! Feel free to call with any questions.

Question :
Can the wood ovens be vented with a 10ft pipe? We can a covered porch would like to put one of your oven however because this area is enclosed part of the time with glass doors we'd like to vent out through the roof which is about 10ft high. Also if it is doable will this effect the cooking in the oven. Thank you
1 ANSWER(S)
ANSWER :
Yes. Many of our customers have purchased an oven from us and installed them on their cover porches. Our ovens can be vented using a pipe bought locally. However it is very important that all of this be done in accordance with your local building codes. And you'll be happy to learn that this does not diminish the cooking performance of the oven in any way.
