The Grizzly solid fuel oven is available from Ovation Outdoor.

Ovation Outdoor has launched the Grizzly Commercial charcoal oven at what it feels is a modest price point.

Manufactured in Sheffield, UK, the Grizzly Commercial is a charcoal or wood-fired oven. Available in a choice of three contemporary colours, black, red, or grey, the oven is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, where the enamel finish should provide protection from the elements.

The oven is able to grill, bake and slow roast and perform hot and cold smoking. The closed nature of the cooking chamber, combined with two manually operated air vents achieves precise temperature control. This is aimed at allowing it to be used to cook delicate items, such as fish or vegetables, while the combination of the closed oven and controllable air flow also facilitates low charcoal consumption.

Simon Tappenden, MD of Ovation Outdoor, UK agent for the Grizzly Commercial Oven, said: “For many, solid fuel cooking is the holy grail of the culinary world. Taking raw ingredients and cooking them directly over hot embers is a skill, which, when done correctly, creates a unique aroma and colour to the foods. The closed nature of the chamber also generates the perfect conditions needed to lock in the natural flavours of the ingredients, achieving a wonderful texture.

“Made in the UK, designed with a focus on detail and manufactured to a high spec, the Grizzly Commercial Oven delivers the benefits of existing professional charcoal ovens, but at a fraction of the cost of the market-leading appliances. In fact, the Grizzly Commercial is available with a list price from just £2,535+VAT – making it affordable for many.”

Suitable for cooking at temperatures of between 100°C – 350°C, monitored via a built-in thermometer, the unit is designed as a table-top appliance, with an optional stand with locking wheels allowing the oven to be freestanding where required.

A 10mm solid cooking grid which is suitable for searing, comes as standard, along with a slow roasting shelf with collection tray, a smoker tray, and a heat deflection plate for cooking over indirect heat. It has a fire-up time of 45 minutes and a burn-time of up to 12 hours from one load.

The oven is backed by a 12-month warranty.
