Where are you located?
Are your ovens available with a gas assistant No, Fogazzo ovens are not available with gas assistant, because in our experience, residential ovens simply do not need it. Almost without exception the fire is started with a single match and does not burn out for several hours. A gas assist system would simply be redundant.

Technically, yes, although they are different than conventional masonry ovens which are built brick by brick. We learned long ago that a well designed pre-cast oven is less expensive to build and more efficient than a conventional masonry oven.
Can I bake breads in your ovens? Yes, breads greatly benefit from both the flavor and heating qualities of wood. Bread has been baked in wood fired ovens for millennia.

Do I have to install a chimney on my oven? Yes, a chimney system is both a code requirement and needed for your oven to work properly. We recommend a minimal chimney of 36” for the Model, 855, 955 and 850 and 48” for the Models 1055 and 1050, this is needed for your oven to have sufficient air intake for proper convection.

Is a brick oven better than a pre-cast one? Brick ovens built with individual bricks are not as efficient as pre-cast ovens due to the fact that bricks restrict the curvature angles necessary to achieve maximum efficiency. Additionally, ovens built brick by brick take longer to complete and as a direct result, cost more.
What are your ovens made of? Fogazzo castings consist of refractory concrete for the walls and refractory bricks, for ovens floors.
What is the best way to install a wood fired oven? Due to their weight, wood fired ovens should be installed on a concrete shelf, over a masonry, brick, or cast in place concrete walls, on a concrete footing.
