Excellent product I love it
Compact and easy to assemble
Oven is wonderful except for the stone
It's not heating much
For a commercial purposes I think it will not be enough
How do I setup Ooni Karu?
All Ooni pizza ovens are portable and do not require any installation. You simply need to open the oven legs, light the wood inside the oven and you will be ready to cook in minutes!
What kind of fuel can I use with my Ooni wood fired oven?
Ooni multi-fuel pizza ovens can be used with wood and charcoal as standard. Optionally, you can also purchase the Ooni Gas Burner that gives you the option of running your oven on LPG cooking gas!
Pizza Pro Firewood Logs are made from 100% mango wood, free from chemicals or additives, and perfectly sized for Ooni Karu 12 and Ooni Karu 16 pizza ovens. You can purchase Pizza Pro Firewood here.
Mango tree wood, which is easily available in most parts of India is the best choice for wood fired ovens. In the mountains of north India, mango tree wood may be difficult to find. In this case Oak wood is a good choice.
We recommend using pieces of hardwood approximately 15cm/6in long as shown below.
How do I light my oven using wood?
First, check that your Ooni wood fired oven is ready to be fired up: Remove the chimney cap, open the chimney vents and put on the door.
Remove the fuel hatch and place a small stack of burning charcoal in the fuel tray, followed by a layer of wood.
Once you have a nice fire going, add more fuel. Close the hatch and leave your oven to preheat for 20-30 minutes. Keep an eye on the fire and add more fuel as needed. Remember, adding too much at once can smother the flame.
You can use charcoal and wood separately, but we love combining the two for an even heat and unbeatable flavour.
