Bought this product for my Husband's birthday.

He absolutely loves it. The fact that we can move it from our bar area to the boma area, to the way it cooks and the way it looks.

We are extremely happy all around.

Super easy to put together, and the cover fits well.
Even fits in our pantry, with collapsible legs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is my first home pizza oven. Before buying, I did a lot of research on Youtube as this unit is not cheap, but it's so worth it.

It's really easy to set up and comes packaged like an Apple product, took 5 minutes to assemble and 30 minutes to get to the temperature. At 450 Degrees C, it takes 1m20sec to cook a pizza, it's amazing!

For more stable heat control, I do recommend using the gas attachment. Overall, very satisfied with the craftsmanship and our pizzas have a much more au Read more

Review by Michele R. on 19 March 2024

I bought this product about two years ago as it was advertised as a dual fuel product both charcoal/wood and gas. I have continued enquiring about the gas attachment and for two years I have been given the run around by Ooni with a plethora of excuses why the gas attachment was taking longer to develop (which is a patent lie). In the end instead of making good on their undertakings they have den Read more
