It looks cool, but I watched the gas version video and they put a raw pizza into the oven when it hit 450°. Sorry, but between my broiler, my MC steel plate, and the knowledge gained here at eG, my regular electric oven can make a pizza just as well. I mean, I guess this is nice if you don't want to heat up the kitchen, but I was expecting something like 800°.

Both the presenter's accent and the rapid cooking suggest that may have been 450 C, not 450 F.  They claim it heats up to 500 C, and the temp gauge show has C as the default (in larger type than the F temps).  Is 842 F hot enough for ya? ;)

I'm impressed with the RoccBox, particularly after watching the SeriousEats video. I'm unlikely to buy one, or any pizza oven, as my wife chooses a low-carb diet and so pizza is a treat.

 

As a native New Yorker good pizza sense is baked into my DNA. At least it is in my opinion. *grin* I'm also an engineer so research into what works is important. See https://www.webstaurantstore.com/article/34/how-choose-best-commercial-pizza-oven-business.html for a perspective that makes the consumer grade RoccBox look pretty good.

 

Since you are now thinking about pizza, consider the story of Pizza Pi:  https://www.pizza-pi.com/gallery-1/

Kenji rated it the best backyard pizza oven https://www.seriouseats.com/2017/05/best-backyard-pizza-ovens-review.html

 

I have the blackstone oven which also works great.

 

There's also this coming for indoor http://smartovenpizzaiolo.breville.com/us/

 

 

Depending on how big* it is I'd be interested in the Breville.

 

*let's be honest, heavy.
