    I've been getting more and more interested in making my own pizzas since I've been doing more and more outdoor cooking on the grill. I've looked into building an actual wood-fired stone pizza oven, and looked into getting a cheaper pizza oven...But when I saw this, I thought it was exactly what I was looking for. It fits on my gas Weber grill, so I didn't need to make an expensive investment in something else, I just needed the BakerStone... Out of the box assembly was easy, I love the pizza peel it comes with, its super useful. Trying it for the first time, it took about 20-30 minutes to preheat all the way... Once I slid the pizza in (the tricky part) I followed the instructions and turned the pizza every 45 sec -1min to ensure it cooked evenly... the pizzas were cooked in about 5-6 minutes... Crust was awesome! Exactly what I was looking for, and exactly what I've been missing by cooking pizzas in the kitchen oven,... I think this is a great accessory for someone who is interested in cooking their own pizzas at home!

    Convenient Pizza Oven Box

    The ease of use of having this "portable" pizza oven is a big benefit. When compared to the prices and the permanent build of a pizza oven, this really takes the cake. I would like to see an actual temperature gauge rather than the 3 levels of temperature ranges that this shows, but it is easy enough to understand. Make sure your grill size is adequate enough to fit this box. Please look on at the pizza we made as proof that this is a must for pizza nights.

    After hearing about the BakerStone oven, the first thing I noticed about the item was the weight (28 lbs). After unpacking it and reading the directions on how to use it, we planned our first pizza party this weekend. Over the years, I've cooked pizza on the grill (right on the grill). It was great pizza, but it I had to watch the dough closely so it wouldn't burn. With the BakerStone, you can now have that great grilled pizza taste by way of an even surface for a consistent heat. The first couple of pizzas took a little practice to figure out how to rotate the pizza and determine when it was done. We quickly got the hang of it and the rest of the pizzas that night were great. Pizza parties are great for both kids and adults as everyone can make their own pizza with the toppings they want. It doesn't matter that you don't all eat together - it's just part of the fun. We find that extra wine comes in handy as we cooked one pizza after another. The downside of the BakerStone is the weight and how you store it. For now, we're going to keep it on the grill and just take it off the grill for when we grill burgers, steaks or other non-pizza dinners. I'd say the product delivers as promised.

    We love making and eating pizza. I bought this oven with the only intention of not having so much heat in the house. I did not expect it to work so good, I stuck it in my grill turned it on and waited to reach correct setting, pizza, pizzas were perfect.

    This Pizza Oven Box is great for backyard pizza parties and fun times with family and friends. It is VERY well made of quality components and is well suited for its primary task, which is to get very hot to cook homemade pizzas. Home oven don't get hot enough to properly cook a pizza, and this product is able to do so using an innovative design. On my grill, the oven took about 20 minutes to reach the necessary temperature as indicated by the top-mounted gauge. It then took about 12 minutes to cook a pizza to my tastes. On a side note, remember that you need enough propane to power your grill on full blast for the duration of the burn. Also, don't underestimate the bulk and weight of this oven. It is not flimsy (necessarily so) and will take at least one able-bodied adult to handle and move. This can be a factor unless you plan to leave it on your outdoor grill most of the time. I did not test it this way, but I don't see why it can't be used as a general purpose oven to cook chicken, beef, etc. if that suits your needs. This Pizza Oven Box is an excellent product that is perfect for lovers of homemade pizza that have the time to invest in the required process. My girlfriend and I enjoyed shopping for the ingredients (dough, cheese, sauce, toppings) and preparing them for baking. If that person is you, then this pizza oven is the best way, short of installing a commercial grade pizza oven, to get restaurant quality pizza in your home.

    Great pizza oven. Takes about 15-20 mins to get up to temp, make sure you find a good dough recipe and the results will be great!

    It takes a little to heat up to the proper temperature, but once up to temp, pizza only takes 6-8 minutes. You will need a long handled scraper to clean up any spills in oven.

    Everyone loves the pizza oven. We were getting tired of burgers, dogs, and chicken on the grill. It was fun and everyone was cooking their own pizza so wasn't one person doing all of the cooking.

    Novel Idea for people who like to use the grill

    I Had to wait awhile before putting my review up to test a few different things. Overall I like the concept and making pizza in this is pretty easy. one draw back is having a large enough grill to use it on and if you don't want to heat up your whole home during the summer by using the over the over one. I have not tried making other items in it but pizzas come up just the right amount of crust not to soft or to tough. After a few tries to get the heat right. Once you do follow the directions pretty close but you may have to watch your heat if you have a very large grill as mine tends to heat pretty fast. Like I said pretty novel idea and avoids having to heat up the house in the summer when you want pizza. Next I will try home made pizza and update my review

    It's clear that you are thinking to buy this oven because you have an interest in doing your own pizza party in your patio and you own a nice size barbecue, otherwise this is not for you. If you know the difference between cooking in an electric or gas oven versus doing it in a convectional oven and if you admire how the stones can prepare the pizza to a level like the Plazza Nabonna (Italy), this is a must have product for your house. I never intended to be a good cook so I didn't try up to know baking my own pizza so all my tests have been with the artisanal pizza available in a near store and I can confirm that the level obtained is over the average with a seamless bake in the entire pizza. Couple of recommendations: the pizza should have the right size or you risk to introduce it too much up to the back of the oven where the heat is directly arriving from the barbeque (your pizza burns if goes to the direct fire). You should regularly turn the pizza to make sure that the crust is evenly cooked. Finally, you should not care at all of how dirty the stones are after cooking your pizzas, cleaning it to avoid old food and bacteria is fine but the stones are not going to be perfectly clean and white as the first day. A final consideration, the oven should be mounted and you will need 5 to 15 minutes and a Phillips screwdriver. The instructions are clear enough in an ikea-kind-of manual but depending you comfort level with the tool be smart and plan ahead.

    Restaurant Quality Pizza

    Posted

    I have always been a fan of homemade pizza so was very excited to get this pizza oven. For those of you that don't know, most restaurant pizza is cooked at 900 degrees, but most home ovens can only reach 550 degrees. I have been trying for years to get a higher temperature by cooking pizza on a stone on the grill. I have been able to get the stone up to 900 but when I cooked the pizza the toppings and cheese don't melt before the crust is done. This pizza oven solves that problem! The design of this oven basically creates a box made out of baking stones, so when heated, it provides heat to the top and bottom of the pizza. There is also an opening at the back of the box that allows the heat to convect upward and over the pizza. I bought 8 pizza doughs from our Italian deli and had a family pizza party. Here is what I learned about this pizza oven. First, pay close attention to the thermometer. I thought that getting more heat would make it cook better but the gauge went all the way around and back to cool because I heated it too much. When too hot, the crust blackens instantly and you cannot use parchment or it will immediately burn and stick to the dough. The best temperature is hotter than the oven (the thermometer uses pictures) and about half way through the fire. At that temperature you can still use parchment to get the pizza in the oven, and then take it out in about 30 seconds after the dough starts cooking. The second piece of advice about the stone is to rotate the pizza. If your grill is on, then heat will be coming in the back vent of the pizza oven and it will brown and cook faster in the back. The turner that comes with it works great for rotating the pizza as you cook it and will help it cook more evenly. Overall, I am very pleased with the quality of pizza that I can make in this pizza oven and would highly recommend this.

    Expend your Grilling horizon with Pizza!

    I hardly ever review products like this but man this pizza box delivers. My family loves this thing so much everytime I grill they ask me to bring out Bakerstone. I spent the better part of two weeks trying this out and it works out wonderful. Summer has never been better. The first trick here is to make sure you have a 4 burner grill otherwise it will not get hot enough at all. First off the BakerStone Pizza Oven Box Kit looks good and would fit in with any design of the grill. The box also cooks the pizza quickly and evenly. After about heating the box up for about 15-30 mins, each pizza takes 5 mins and its done. This is the best way I have ever cooked pizza in my life. Once off the grill, it tastes very delicious. Know your grill and you should be fine on baking it perfectly each time. While it's mainly for pizza you can cook Fish, Veggies, PERFECT FOR COOKIES, and Roast meat. It comes with everything you need to pull the pizza out of the oven but my downside to this grill is that it's pretty tough to clean out. Other then that its an amazing product to me. All of this product really depends on your skills as a cook on the grill, You have to keep checking on the pizza. The product itself isn't the failure as much as you have to get used to using it. I love it and would recommend to anyone who wants to expand their grilling efforts and make fantastic pizza. I was personally skeptical about this product but was vastly proved wrong. Indeed going to buy one for my friend.

    What's in the box ----------------- BakerStone pizza oven box Basics pizza turner Basics wooden pizza peel Pros ---- 1. Great Innovative product will turn your rusting grill into a pizza oven 2. Simple construction, nothing to fail 3. dont have to heat up the whole kitchen by using the oven inside when you can use it outside 4. inexpensive 5. Its fun Cons --- 1. Takes some time to preheat 2. Need to keep rotating the pizza to make it evenly heat up Review ------ I think its a great concept. I know most of you having homes have a grill and even though you may not use it often, its become a prestige thing, you just need to have it on your deck. So, I am not bing into meat eating so my grill is totally rusting away. Then, I got this to make some pizzas. Once I got my friends and organized a make your own pizza party, got some dough from the local pizzaria and other ingredients like the tomato sauce, cheese toppings etc and had everyone make their own pizza, it was a lot of fun! I think this thing adds a fun value as well to it since you are doing this outdoor. Love the product!! 5 star!!
