Door is made of a decorative cast concrete with a refractory layer. It is designed to hold in heat when baking, or to keep the elements out when the oven is not in use. It is colored to match either our slate gray or terra cotta outdoor ovens.

Door cuts off oxygen to coals while cooking so needs some venting to be a working door while cooking. It does close off opening when not using pizza oven so it's good for that. It is a tight fit. It is heavy. First one broke while shipping so Round Boy sent another, that one chipped slightly so they credited us price.
Roundboy Response: Sorry for your experience! It's been very rare that doors have been damaged in shipping. Unfortunately, it happened twice this time. We offered the option of trying a third time or a refund. We appreciate the shipping feedback and have improved our packaging.
