There are two types - combustion ‘outdoor pizza ovens’ which uses a separate chamber that is used to build the fire and create a heated oven chamber; and a direct heat oven design which enables cooking and baking in the same chamber as the fire. This type of direct combustion oven can cook a pizza in two minutes. The fire is usually wood burning however but is also available gas fired combustion too. These ovens can be used as a barbecue, oven, grill and smoker.
Pravin Patel, director at Premier Decorations, said: "We are delighted that Fontana has been recognised as a top new product range and are confident that it will prove to be popular in garden centres across the UK. At a time when barbecuing trends in the UK are changing and developing at a tremendous pace this method of cooking transforms the traditional barbecue to an appealing method of cooking a variety of food the entire year round and enhances the whole concept of outdoor living."
