In our factory we carve the bricks in the perfect shape to create the dome, and we bond them with fine refractory mortar.

How to choose A Wood Fired Pizza Oven

The purpose of your oven decides what is the best oven for you.  Our brick ovens are heavy-duty ovens which are built to last a lifetime. Our mobile ovens are a ready-made and cheaper product.

Should I get a brick or mobile wood fired oven?

Although we do recommend the brick wood fired pizza oven for commercial pizza businesses, a mobile oven could be the right for you if you are a catering business that has to move it on a regular basis. Since the mobile oven is cheaper you might want to consider starting with this one in your restaurant and see how the response is. However a brick oven is much more appealing in terms of aesthetic and will definitely increase the pizza sales having one visible in your restaurant. 

Should I get the gas burner system?

If you are planning to use your oven commercially we always recommend that it has a gas burner system.  With a gas burner system you can choose to fire the oven on only wood, only gas, or (as we recommend) gas and wood at the same time. This way you will get the most out of your oven: a temperature that is easy to maintain and the smokey flavour. 

What kind of finishing will the oven have?

We have a wide range of finishing that will match any interior or exterior.  Our mobile ovens that goes ready-made form our factory have a epoxy-paint finishing of either red, black, green and blue. For an additional cost you can also get the external steel shell covered with a premium finishing such as broken mosaic tile or brick veneers.

For the semi-mobile oven most common is to cover the shell with broken tile mosaic, mosaic tile, bricks or stone. The fixed oven gives a very heavy and authentic look, which is why most common is to give them a finishing of either bricks or stone.

How long time does it take to build an Il Forno By Marco oven?

Our brick ovens are built on location. From that the advance is released it takes around one month for the oven to be completed. From our factory in Delhi we ship the oven kit to your site (takes around 2 weeks). Once the material arrived Marco will come to your site with his team and install the oven. 

The mobile ovens are currently ready in stock and can be shipped anywhere in India form our factory in Delhi. We only need one day to paint the oven and an additional day for the paint to dry, and then it is ready to go!

What kind of fuel do i use to fire the oven?

The wood fired ovens smoky flavour is what is desired.  To use gas as a primary fuel in a wood fired oven makes it easier to run. However the pizza will not get the desirable smoky flavour. Many companies use hybrid ovens that can use both gas and wood at the same time. These ovens becomes easier to operate and also gives the smoky flavour.

Wood fired ovens work well with mango wood which is available in most parts of India. However, mango is not available in the mountains in the north of India. In those areas something like oak is a good choice.

Oily wood, such as Pine, should not be used because of the flavours and deposits. Neither low density wood, which is cheaper, since it takes up a lot of space in the oven. It also takes longer time and greater amounts to heat the oven.

How long tinme does it take for the oven to get hot?

Before the restaurant open you have to pre-heat the oven. The idea is to have the oven ready before customers walk in. All Il Fonro By Marco ovens will reach 400°C in just 30–40 minutes. When talking about the temperature in a wood fired oven the temperature of the cooking base is the one measured. If you measure the upper part of the oven the temperature will be at least 50°C hotter.
