Naples-style oven designed for backyard baking. These beautiful and innovative ovens feature a traditional center vent system where hot air exhausted from the oven is routed back over the oven dome and then vented through a stainless steel chimney pipe in the center of the dome. This ventilation method evenly and efficiently heats the oven dome and maintains the high temperatures required for baking Pizza Napoletana.
Vesuvio ovens feature a beautifully tiled enclosure for outdoor use and optional decorative powder coated steel stand. These handcrafted ovens are available in four different sized cooking areas; 32 inches, 36 inches, 40 inches, and 44 inches. The Vesuvio oven includes a powder coated steel door with oven thermometer.
Having an authentic Naples-Style Wood Fired Oven has never been so easy. The Vesuvio is Forno Bravo's most popular artistic fully assembled residential pizza oven. They offer the optimal balance between oven size and mass, and heat up time and efficiency. Their center vent construction provides the best heat retention and distribution available from a fully assembled oven. The Vesuvio ovens are perfect for weekend entertaining and weekday cooking for your family.
The Vesuvio ovens feature four unique technologies:
The Vesuvio oven 2" dome is produced using a proprietary 142 pcf density, 8,230 psi strength refractory material and a two-sided, vibrated mold casting process — the same material and process we use for our commercial ovens. It is a remarkably hard and durable material that is superior to old- fashioned clay ovens.
The Vesuvio oven floor is constructed using 2" commercial-grade (2,700psi compressed and 2,650°F kiln-fired) baking tiles with Cordierite — for both great pizza baking and durability.
Each Vesuvio oven is constructed with 3" of high-tech ceramic insulation and 2" of ceramic floor insulation — eliminating the need for old-fashioned and inefficient vermiculite or Perlite.
The Vesuvio center vent system traps hot air exhausted from the oven and routes it back over the oven dome and then vents it through a stainless steel chimney pipe in the center of the dome providing the best fuel efficiency and heat retention available.
