My decision for purchasing the Roundboy was not an impetuous one. I’ve been pondering the idea of building an outdoor kitchen with the addition of a pizza oven for a couple of years. I’ve searched the web for hours upon hours looking for an oven that wouldn’t require the additional installation expense and one that would last for years to come. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon the Roundboy did I know my search was final. If you have done any research on pizza ovens you will quickly notice that they are not cheap and most require a Brick Mason to complete the oven which increases the cost even more. Reading review after review with only positive comments, I was certain this was the one.
I was traveling to PA from VA to visit family and decided to pick up the oven in route. I met Karl at his house and he thoroughly explained the Ovens operation and installation. He also added if I had any question in the future not to hesitate to call. After I returned with the oven I needed to build my outdoor kitchen but I won’t bore you with the 2 month build process/story.
I had a friend help with the installation and I’m glad I did. Although the instructions are very straight forward the pieces are a tad heavy for one person to safely handle. Plus, you will need someone to help hold one piece while installing another, but again, very easy to put together.
So the next day I decided to fire up the oven and start the curing process which I was more nervous about than really needed to be. I burned a fire for about 2 hours that day and the next day for about 5hrs and just to be safe I called Karl for encouragement to increase the temperature. After explaining the previous steps he assured me it was ok to crank it up and that I couldn’t get it hot enough (obviously he has never seen the fires in my fire pit) so I did, to 850 degrees. At this time my wife had already prepared 4 pizzas for the oven so we decided to give it a shot. The pizzas took approximately 2-3 minutes each and came out perfectly; my kids loved it and thought that it was the coolest thing ever. With the remaining heat left in the oven we made S’mores in a casserole dish. I specifically purchased the oven for pizza but after reading all of the blogs, this oven could cook anything that your heart desires.
Overall we are extremely happy with the purchase of this well-built oven from a company that cares about its customers. Although I didn’t purchase the stand I did see one at Karl’s house and these things are built to withstand a stinger missile. You won’t go wrong purchasing one with the oven and you’ll need it if not building a stand, these ovens weigh over 1300lbs.
