Taylor UK has launched the latest version of the Fire electric pizza oven, which is manufactured by TurboChef.
As well as baking pizzas up to 14in in diameter in an estimates 90 seconds, the oven is designed to be compact and feature retro styling. In addition, it fits on a back bar or counter top and it is ventless, so it should be able to be installed anywhere, with no need for extra extraction.
The Fire is suitable for sites looking for a distinctive, front of house pizza oven. Cooking is achieved using convection fans, top and bottom, which can be independently controlled. The design should ensure the oven is easily regulated and also means it can reach temperatures of up to 450°C.
The high temperature mimics the classic pizza oven climate, delivering a pizza which should have a crispy bottom and a succulent topping.
The integral catalytic convertor takes care of cooking smells and the double wall insulated construction helps minimise radiating heat, keeping the outer walls cool. There’s a removable bottom access panel for easy cleaning of the 430 stainless steel interior. The exterior has a corrosion resistant steel body.
To operate, the user loads pizza, using a paddle, onto a pizza shelf screen in the oven. The access flap has a glass viewing panel, so it’s possible to watch the pizza as it cooks. The oven has six pre-set timers.
The latest Fire is available in a range of colours – alongside the classic traffic light red, there’s a choice of yellow, green, pure white, jet black, and blue. The unit is supplied with a stainless steel pizza paddle and two pizza shelf screens, each capable of holding a 14in pizza.
David Rees, marketing manager of Taylor UK, said: “The Fire is, on the one hand, a real design statement, while at the same time it delivers authentic, artisan baked pizza.
“Its compact, ‘fit anywhere’ design means all sorts of sites can now offer a real taste of Italian pizza.”
The list price for the Fire is £5,595 plus VAT and it is supplied with a 1 year parts and labour warranty.
