Unimpressed

This is my third Ooni. I've been making pizza for 4 years and am pretty comfortable with the process now. However, Ooni's oven designs are flawed. The Karu has a door, great, I thought it would stop the wind knocking out the flame. Well, nope, the gas burner attachment is not sealed on the back, allowing wind in. Not even bad wind, just a breeze knocks the flame out. I had this problem with the Fyra and Koda, unfortunately the Karu has it, too. Ooni stones are also very poor. Bad heat distribution and retention. I got a biscotto for my Koda and it was a game-changer. Waiting for stock for the Karu. Another gripe, the gas dial on the back of the huge oven is massively inconvenient. Constantly having to dial it up and down so it should be at the front. And the back flame... I think I'm ultimately leaning to a Gozney. Ooni achieves the temps, but they really need to look at their design.

Great Pizza Oven

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy assembly, quality pizza oven. Takes a few tries to get a feel for launching pizza and understanding what the best cooking temperature is for a great pizza without burning the crust. Making pizza with the Ooni Karu 16 is fun and gets the whole family involved!!

Fantastic purchase

Purchased this today after a long debate. It’s amazing. Should have got it sooner. Looking forward to making use of its larger size to bake some bread and making some other bits

Great Oven, not just for pizza

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Brilliant oven, and an all round performer. Since purchase I have made pizza, roasted lamb, pork and chicken and enjoyed wonderful steaks with friends. Exactly what I expected from this superior oven. Does take some getting used to, but well worth it

Superb oven

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Couldn’t believe how easy everything was, from setting up the oven to regulating the heat during cooking. Pizza perfection from the off!

Great bit of kit… I’ve

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great bit of kit… I’ve had cheaper pizza ovens before that have done the job. It’s easier and quicker to get up to temperature and keep it there… All you need is a team feeding you the pizza.

Transformed our garden!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this, built an outdoor kitchen, we have used it almost every other day, even in the rain. Fantastic pizzas, but also BBQ, potato wedges, burgers, kebabs, steaks on the grizzler. Love it

Need better temperature control and better ignition

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Still getting used to the oven, can't seem to get the bottom to cook perfectly without burning the toppings. Using gas and it's impossible to control the temperature using the knob. The ignition for the gas works about one time in 25, very frustrating and I've given up and using a 3rd party lighter which is annoying.
