TurboChef Fire

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Has anyone ever used the Turbo Chef Fire pizza oven? What is your opinion of it?  Is there a better countertop pizza oven out there?

saw one of these recently

 

it requires three phase power and draws 25 amps

 

only makes 9" pizzas

 

electrical elements top and bottom.

 

looks expensive to run.

I just bought one, we havent tried it out with a real pizza, but seems to melt cheese on a piece of bread REALLY fast. 

It can do up to 14" pizzas actually.

Oh and to add, we are fully expecting to have to burn a bunch of pizza to dial in the time/temps for our pizza recipe. 

As far as we can tell this thing is really gonna be great for us. Well made piece of equipment.

Let us know how it works long term, Dave.

The one I used started to malfunction after about a year. First the temperatures would fluctuate randomly and then it started dropping. The bottom of the pizza wouldn't finish until the top was overdone. They wanted a lot (!) of money to repair it but luckily a local electrician was able to fix it for very cheap. It's been working normally since.

It could be a rare occurrence but I'm curious what other people experience.

We have a Turbochef Sora oven in our kitchen it makes flatbread pizza perfect every time now that we have found the best setup for it.
