The Maximus pizza oven is made of stainless steel and aluminium and is tunnel shaped, which is a different concept from our brick dome wood fired ovens. Whereas with a brick oven the bricks first absorb the heat and then reflect it to the floor which may take around 1 hour, the Maximus will heat up in 15 to 20 minutes only as only the floor bricks need heating up. This means it won’t retain the heat for long either however it only takes a tiny log of hardwood at the time to keep it going. For the rest it does the same job as the brick ovens: it cooks the perfect pizza (2 at the time!), roasts, gratins, bread and of course with that authentic wood fired flavour.
It can be placed on a table, a bench or its own stand and is a great addition to your barbecue area, balcony, verandah or backyard.




Inside cooking area: W60 x D60 x H26 cm
External: W70 x L70 x H48 cm
Weight: only 55 kgs
Fits 2 oven dishes

  1. I just wanted to let you know that the wood fired oven is now operating – it’s great and thanks for the all the assistance. Also, in the video the person uses a large pair of tongs for moving the fire / removing the kindling support and I’m wondering if I could purchase a pair which would ship when the cover becomes available. Or, if the tongs aren’t part of your list of equipment, then are you aware of where one can get a similar set of tongs?

  2. Dear Giuseppe & Christi;
    Just letting you know how fantastic our pizza oven we purchased is. We have done pizzas, bread and roasts in it so far and loving it.
    Just wanting to know, do you stock covers for the Maximus ovens?

  3. G’day, love the oven!!!!!

    Once again thanks very much

  4. Hi Christi hope everything is well,
    Yes I was able to pick it up on Thursday and the very nice lady at the depot was very nice and friendly.
    In case you were wondering, Yes the maximus can fit in the back of a Honda Jazz Hatchback with the backseats all folded down. see photos
    I’m going to cook in it today for the first time as I have been slowly curing it for the past 4 days. Exciting!

  5. Hi Christi, I just wanted to let you know that we are really enjoying the Maximus pizza oven. We’ve had 3 groups of people over on different weekends and everyone has remarked on the great pizzas and the design of the oven. Sitting out under the stars up on our deck and making pizza’s with a glass of red has been superb. The fact that it is light enough to move to different locations, exterior does not get very hot, is very quick to heat and very efficient with wood required to keep it at temperature is quite remarkable. The DVD and instructions and recipes are also great, and Giuseppe’s song just caps it off! Thanks very much!
    Rick and Tassia

  6. Thanks for all the assistance and advice, looking forward to getting the Maximus fired up!
    All the best,
    Jonathan Lane

  7. Hello Giuseppe and Christi,
    thank you very much for sending the oven so promptly.
    I’ll make sure to follow your instructions to the letter for curing the oven. Fortunately I have a bit of experience playing with fire as I have several charcoal and wood BBQs and for me curing the oven is part of the fun 🙂
    As you can imagine I’m really looking forward to playing with “Max”.
    If I manage to churn out 90 second pizza napoletana I will let you know and post it in a few forums. I’m sure there would be many people interested. It might take me a while to get there though,

  8. Hello there Guiseppe &Christi
    We LOVE our new wood-fired oven, what a joy to cook in!
    We cured it nicely, can’t believe how little wood is needed to keep it hot, and how quickly the pizzas cook….should have bought one years ago.
    Here’s a picture of our first pizza, mushrooms, spinach, finely sliced tomato, crushed garlic soaked in olive oil, small pieces of smoked cheese and Parmesan then drizzled in olive oil…..YUM!
    Thankyou for your kind help and expertise when explaining how to use the oven, we are so sure it will be a talking point at parties and family gatherings!
    Take care and Thankyou again…..
    Dean and Julie

  9. Hi Giuseppe and Christi,
    The oven arrived safely today and I’ve been giving it a low burn for a few hours. I’ll do it again before firing it up on the weekend.
    Really happy with it, thank you for your communication and prompt service.
    Thanks again and I’ve already posted my support of your good service on our BBQ forum
    best regards, Ian

  10. Guiseppe / Christi.
    Happy new year to you.
    First of all let me say that the oven we bought from you is excellent. We’ve used it several times and although we’re still getting the hang of the fire building, the end result has been fantastic every time.
    Regards, Ben

  11. Hi Giuseppe and Christi, thanks for the email. We are still enjoying the Maximus and very happy with the purchase and of course the delicious pizzas. I’m quite happy for you to use the link to the forum to show prospective clients.
    Regards Ian Hughes
