3.0 out of 5 stars High Temp, But Flawed, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: G3 Ferrari G10006 Delizia Pizza Oven - 1200W in Red (Kitchen & Home)
This reaches impressively high temperatures after just 8 or 9 minutes of being switched on. I've clocked it at 370 degrees celsius with an infra-red thermometer. These temperatures will transform your pizzas if you are used to cooking them in a conventional oven. No pizza stone or similar gimmick can make up for the pure heat that you need to make really good pizza.

There are two downsides. First, this machine uses two elements to heat the pizza, one above and one below. The one above switches off when the thermostat reaches top temperature. This can result in a pizza that's cooked to perfection on the underside, but a bit undercooked on top. That's easy enough to get around, though - either you finish the pizza off under a hot grill, or you find the timings that work for you. I found that slipping the pizza in 8 minutes after powering up and removing the pizza 4 minutes later provided a crisp base and cooked top.

The second and bigger problem is electrical safety. I recently had my place rewired and a modern consumer unit installed, and the oven now trips the fuse every time we try to use it. The electrician tells me it must have been overloading the circuit previously, and I now wonder if the oven was the cause of some other electrical problems around the house. I've binned the oven and switched to a more expensive, British-made equivalent that sits on the gas hob and reaches even higher temperatures without the need for electricity.

That said, I had a year of happy use of this oven before the electrical problems came up, and I can't be certain that this oven was the cause.

The Chadwick oven sits on the gas hob and doesn't use electricity. However, there are problems with the Chadwick, too - the bottom of the pizza cooks well, but the top needs finishing off under the grill.
