What To Consider When Buying A Pizza Oven

To make the final decision to invest in a new pizza oven, here are a few questions you might want to ask yourself before you start shopping with Firefly Pizza Ovens.
  • What is your expected usage on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis?  
  • Do you require more than one pizza cooked at a time, or will one pizza at a time fit your needs?
  • What is your pizza oven equipment budget?
  • Will you be using your pizza oven for residential or commercial use?
  • Do you want a pizza oven where you can take your time and enjoy the experience or do you want a quick and easy pizza oven?
  • What is the accessible energy source for your pizza oven (i.e. wood, natural gas, propane) and where is it located in your current kitchen setup? 
  • Do you have ventilation, airflow, cleaning, and maintenance requirements that need to be met?
  • Do you need a mobile/portable pizza oven, a countertop pizza oven or possibly a built in pizza oven?
  • What are the aesthetics of the area it will occupy?  Does it need to coordinate with existing materials?  (note: many of our dome ovens can have the exterior changed/enhanced to match existing colors and materials)
  • For indoor or outdoor options, what's your space availability for a pizza oven? If purchasing a heavier oven, most of our ovens are delivered by curb side delivery.  Do you have access to an engine hoist or other tool to help to place the oven in its designated location (these can typically be rented from your local tool rental company)?
  • What is your comfort level with wood-fired vs. gas?
  • Will you be cooking a wide variety of foods in your oven or just pizza.  If cooking an assortment of items, consider the door opening size as well as the size of your oven height and floor.
  • Are you interested in using your oven as a fire feature as well or will it only be used for cooking?
  • What is most important to you for your new oven? Most consumers like to consider style, size, fuel type, and portability needs in their decisions. What are your preferences?
