    What can I say but it is fantastic and we have been cooking on it on a regular basis. Have had lots of friends round for pizza parties and lots of interested comments too as to where we got it from etc. Anyway the pictures speak for themselves…

    I’ve attached some pictures of our Primo 60 purchased from you earlier in the year you may wish to use in your Gallery – we are really pleased how it looks and how well it is working.

    Many thanks

    A wee bit delayed but wanted to send you some photo’s of my “outdoor kitchen” as it’s been dubbed by families and friends.

    We’ve made great use of the Pizza Oven with lots of Pizza’s being made including some very tasty breakfast pizza’s when we had family over to stay, an excellent pick me up the “morning after the night before”.

    I’ve used it for a few slow cooked overnight meals as well and ended up making myself an insulated door to help with heat retention which was very easy to do.

    I’ve also been lucky enough that an old coffee table we have happens to fit perfectly over my fire pit and, as you’ll see, is perfect as an outdoor preparation area and makes pizza making so much easier and even a bit less messy in the kitchen much to my wife’s pleasure!

    The whole family is agreed it’s been one of the best buys we’ve ever made!

    Anyway, we’ve truly enjoyed the oven and wanted to share some of the good times with you and the team, thanks again.

    In short it’s been great fun so far. Whilst I initially got the oven primarily for pizzas (which are great) I was surprised at the roasting and grilling potential of the oven and have used it for this much more than I anticipated. It is far superior to any barbecue I’ve used, either gas or charcoal; the food (meat, sausages, burgers…) being cooked perfectly, moist and no charring of the outside. I’ve found using a cast iron griddle in the oven is excellent as the food is subjected to heat from all sides at the same time and effectively only needs turning to make attractive lines on the other side of the food! Whilst the quality of cooking is great at all times I found that the speed of cooking and not having to constantly tend the food whilst it is cooking is perfect for entertaining and keeping the party supplied with a steady flow of food items.

    I’ve only used the oven to cook bread a couple of times using the residual heat following cooking pizzas/grilling and think perhaps the oven may have benefitted from being hotter. I also suspect that the heat retention would be improved if the oven was ‘built in’ and had further insulation. The base I built for the oven and stand is sufficient enough for a more permanent structure should I wish to build the oven a more permanent home…but that’s for later perhaps.

    Overall it’s been good fun and interesting to try out and I look forward to more experimenting! Also, the level of information, guidance, attention and ‘aftercare’ you provide is excellent customer service and from my experience of purchasing and using one of your ovens I would not hesitate to recommend you and your products.

    Hi just wanted to share how awesome our oven looks this morning in the sunshine…thanks again, we can’t wait to fire it up again this weekend!

  6. Richard Hall

    We absolutely love the oven, its an amazing social event, and getting everyone to make their own pizza is so much fun!

  7. Judith Jungmayr

    So far so good, excellent pizzas and sourdough bread cooked at different stages of firing. We are running just for guests staying with us we sleep 22 in 3 cottages and 2 caravans and have fed everyone to great satisfaction!

  8. Mark Gutteridge

    Hi! Well we’ve had our Primo 60 going around 4 times and it’s absolutely fantastic. We had a good look round at all the ovens on the market and are so pleased we chose yours. Attached the photo so you can see how it fits into the garden.

  9. Jim Andrews


    Here are a few pics of the stages of building my Mezzo oven. I love it! Had it three weeks and cooked so many different things in it. Pizzas, slow roast shoulder if pork, large spatchcocked
    chicken, whole teriyaki salmon, chateaubriand, eggs florentine next morning, 12 poussin, three to skewer,
    loads of garlic bread and fougasse.

    We are very happy with the Oven! We are still experimenting with pizzas & Roasts & have some great results.

    I have attached some photo’s of our built in Mezzo!! Overall we’re very pleased with the service & The product!

    We are loving the Primo 60 oven!! Check out some photo’s from our mobile wood burning oven & chef business – Wood Fired Artisan Food & Themed Feasts!

  12. Judy Digney


    We’re very pleased with our oven and our pizza cooking skills are gradually improving.

    We decided not to build a brick base but to use your iron frame, though we made a rough and ready serving table from the planks from our old shed, together with some lovely new oak planks from a local timber merchant.

  13. Baxter Bradford

    Smokey chicken breast with red onion, basil and tomato sauce. We all agreed that the blackened parts had the most intense flavour. The dish was short-lived, such was the flavour! Just loving the Primo 60.

  14. Stephen Barker


    The pizza oven is going very well, thanks very much – I am delighted with it !

    Have cooked pizzas (obviously), curry, Lamb Kleftico, Morrocan beef, chocolate soufflé, a roast chicken (after cooking a pizza) and this stayed very moist.

    Am hoping to pour concrete countertops tomorrow and when they are all polished, will do brickwork etc around the pizza oven and insulate it so hopefully it will hold the heat a bit longer.

    I always do what you said, which is to put some regular logs in there once I am done cooking and these dry out very nicely, and I then use these to start the next fire and then top up with just a few bought kiln-dried logs just to raise the temperature.

  15. Laura Green

    Oven all finished last weekend and we’re just waiting for some good weather to fire it up!
    Attached is a picture of it completed and built up in our beautiful English limestone (you may have guessed by my email address we have a good supply readily available, thinking of ordering another one for the office!)
    Many thanks for the very efficient and friendly service (even before we ordered).

    Here is a photo of a brick oven I built using a cast sent from your company, I built the oven on the Somerset Devon border. I am a bricklayer with 25 years experience and was hoping if you have customers in the south west area you can pass on my details!

  17. Brian Shaw

    Just wanted to let you know that the mid sized oven went in perfectly and the end result is fantastic! The pizza oven was easy to install and the cooking results have been brilliant. My wife Sue has been really impressed; she now has a second oven which is better than the one in our kitchen. Needless to say it is a favourite with the younger members of our family!!

  18. Mennel Welch

    Just wanted to tell you that my oven is now fully up & working and that it is totally amazing! I have had loads of people enquiring so will be sending on your details.

    Last weekend was the first proper chance I had to really try it out. My early attempts convinced me it was worth getting kiln dried wood which I did and it was well worth it. I managed to achieve proper cooking temperatures within the 20/30 minutes you advertise and I was able to maintain the heat for a good hour or so with no real difficulties. The results were amazing, we had a pizza party on Saturday with everyone making their own topping using my own sourdough base. Fantastically crisp base and cooked in less than a minute. We made the most of the local wild garlic and laced every one with my own wild garlic pesto. Impressed with our success on Sunday I did roast chicken in wild garlic pesto (well its a short season you have to make the most of it!) roast potatoes and shallots. Heavenly. Chicken crisp on the outside and succulent on the inside, potatoes almost burnt but still light a fluffy. So the oven is everything I hoped it would be. It feels like a great addition to the garden and has created a fantastic social space. It is as easy to light and manage as you say I am so looking forward to expanding my repertoire of wood fired oven dishes.

  23. Graham McCreadie


    Just to let you know the chimney arrived safely and we’ve already had some excellent Pizzas and a loaf made in the oven.

    Thanks again,


  24. The installation went like a dream, so straight forward, the Pizzas are amazing, the only learning curve was making sure that its really hot before cooking but we have mastered this now, so thumbs up all round… in fact, I will check your site out as I need a temperature gauge, takes out the guess work…

  25. Dennis Throup


    Just received your February Newsletter and it has inspired me to send you a couple of pic’s of my build. Got the Primo last year and had quite a few ‘pizza parties’ throughout the summer and autumn of last year. Everyone absolutely loves it and the pizza’s it makes. I took a whole load of pic’s detailing the whole build, here’s a few of the end project.

    Many thanks from a delighted customer.

    My only regret with the oven is not doing it a long time ago!

    Tweets from Ian Callaghan (@Foodie_ian):

    - Got the @stonebakeovenco primo 60, Saturday did 40+ pizzas, 3kg of amazing chicken wings then 2 loaves of bread :)

    - @stonebakeovenco I think the indoor oven will be redundant now

    - @stonebakeovenco loving it many hrs to come

    - @stonebakeovenco The first cooking in the oven sauce for pizza, wow what a difference the wood smoke adds.

    - @stonebakeovenco Can not wait to cook a steak in there a big fat bone in steak :)

  38. Baxter Bradford

    Fantastic wood fired cooking session on Saturday in our Primo. Pizza first, then shoulder of lamb which was so succulent. Josie and Max devoured it between giving superlatives about how good the meat was cooked in the Stone Bake oven.

    Because the insulation and rendering had kept the heat so well, it seemed foolish not to slowly braise some chicken fillets so that they can be used with leek and potato in a winter stew for tonight’s meal.

    See more of the Bradford Family’s oven here.

  39. Jean-Christophe Novelli

    Lots of recipes in the new book #SimplyNovelli using @stonebakeovenco which is just brilliant. New courses using the oven coming soon too!

  40. The Paddle, Highcliffe

    A great afternoon trying out the wood fired oven at The Stone Bake Oven Company!

  41. Barry Clark

    Delivery: Efficient and on time. Everything arrived safely.
    Construction: We built a brick storage for our stainless steel barbeque with doors to keep it weatherproof and placed the oven on top of two re-enforced concrete joists.
    Assembly: Very straightforward with a neat finish.
    Lighting: Quick and easy

    Really admired by family and friends, looking forward to getting some more practice in.

  42. Daron Herbert

    Enjoyed some lovely pizzas yesterday with the extended family – all are impressed with the results.

    Hi Tom,

    Taking a look at your site over the weekend i realised i haven’t sent you a picture of my completed Mezzo 76.

    Results have been really good and as i covered the dome with 50mm of vermiculite and cement and then overclad with the bricks the heat retention is excellent.

    Kind regards

    Hi Guys,

    We bought the Primo 60 in March this year and I had already been building towards our outdoor kitchen. We’ve had an amazing summer using the oven on many weekends, inviting neighbours, friends and family over and we could not be more satisfied with the results from the oven.

    It’s a brilliant addition to our garden and we look forward to many more years of use.

    Great oven, great company – thanks very much.

  71. Leon Graves

    I had my birthday party and managed to cook for 75 people on it over the course of the day ( we went a bit pizza mad!) Just wanted to say thank you for providing such a quality product, we love it.


  72. Jason Worman

    The pizza oven has been great really enjoying having the outside oven. And the weather has been great for outside cooking.

  73. Stuart Marsden

    First thing to say, I am the customer from Hell, I ask thousands of questions before I make my mind up; so apologies to Tom and his staff. Every single person I spoke to gave me exactly what I asked for; if a question couldn’t be answered immediately, I was never forgotten and a reply came back quickly.

    Using the oven is easy and a fantastic experience; you become one with your food. I would simply say, follow the excellent manual, safety guide and advice and you can cook anything.

    Get yourself one of these ovens and start the journey; the pinnacle of outdoor cooking!

  74. Torben Iversen

    Thought you might want to see a picture of your pizza oven as it looks installed in our kitchen in Northern Sweden. We put a smoke extractor on top of the chimney and have not had any problems with the oven creating smoke in the kitchen (as long as I remember to turn the extractor fan on!).

    Without the extractor we probably would have had some smoke issues judging from your video given that we chose an indoor installation.

    The oven is working great and we are very pleased!

    Comments from Jean-Christophe Novelli’s blog post about his Gio 120 oven which can be found here

    “We are now starting to install the new bread oven from the Stone Oven Company. I’m hoping this will back memories of my younger days, my first job as a baker.”

    “I think it will look fabulous in here, just next to my fire place and in a position that all of my visitors to the Novelli Academy can see what is baking.”

    “OMG this brings back memories already and I haven’t even had a chance to try it out properly yet, just the smells of the burning wood and the heat of the fire and I’m back to over 35 years ago!”

    “Oh la la!!! This is such fun.”

    “Time to go and practice baking some of my special bread recipes! Watch this space!”

    When I told the Stone Bake Oven Company I would be reviewing their oven I insisted on giving an open and honest account.

    Well they have nothing to be worried about because I’m 100% percent satisfied. The Primo 60 oven is a quality product and I’d highly recommend it.

    The design build quality of the Primo 60 is exceptional. The moulding is crisp and you can see care and attention has been taken during manufacture.

    I can also vouch for the before and after sales service. I’ve mainly been dealing with Laura but there’s a full team for support during every step of the way; even fitting/delaying delivery to suit my building plans.

    What is more the instructions which come with the oven are well printed, clear and comprehensive and backed up entirely by a well maintained and informative website. Even if you have to speak to a human there is always a very friendly person available during office hours.

    All in all I think my Primo 60 will be around for many years to come and give me hours and hours of satisfaction and well worth the price.

    Dear Tom and Laura

    Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for your help and support with my Primo 60.

    I must say the cooking results I’ve had so far are just astonishing and have exceeded all expectations! All those wasted years ordering chewy commercial pizzas when I now have the most unbelievable crisp pizzas in seconds. Used the oven for Peri Peri prawns (amazing) and necks of Lamb finished with infused rosemary (more amazing) at the weekend and to say my guests were overwhelmed would be an understatement!

    The Primo is the perfect size for a small family, quick to heat and is a great conversation piece and guarantees Jealous neighbours ;0).

    Thanks again and good luck with the business.

    Kind regards

    My oven arrived on Friday as promised. I had spent the day building the foundation, so on Friday evening one of my stronger friends arrived to help me lift it into position. I spent Saturday morning tidying the area, and by lunchtime I was ready!

    I love it! I made pizza dough while the oven was heating up. Your oven cooked me the most delicious thin and crispy pizza that I have ever tasted, and then a thicker pizza made with garlic and olive oil. Later we cooked chicken with Mediterranean vegetables. That too was delicious!

    I need to practice and learn, but I think that my wife and I might well give up on the kitchen cooker.

    Thank you for your help and advice. I am looking forward to many happy hours of wood oven cooking.

    It’s up and running very well, we use it most days and we’re just sorting
    out garden lighting so we can use it during the short days of winter.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Tom, thanks for your advice over the additional insulation for my oven. I would just like to say how pleased we are with our Primo oven we recently had a lovely time with friends and family gathered around the oven making our own pizzas and roasting vegetables, the day was a great success with most of my friends leaving feeling very full and very envious,.
    Regards Mike

    Hi All at Stonebake

    All completed,(Primo Oven) did not get chance to have a run through before inviting 15 last Saturday evening. Used your tomato recipe and your dough recipe (fantastic) we made Gluten free pizzas, wholemeal pizzas and white flour pizzas – himself criticised the shape of some of them but I did point out his shift was yet to come ha!

    Sent some piccies all went to plan – yes it did only take a minute and produced fantastic pizzas – I love it when a plan works. Everyone enjoyed the pizzas and said they were better than they had ever tasted before.

    Thanks for all your help and patience.

    Phil Voice Primo 60 Oven Review,


    “The Primo 60 oven is a quality product and I’d highly recommend it.
    The design build quality of the Primo 60 is exceptional. The moulding is crisp and you can see care and attention has been taken during manufacture ”

    “All in all I think my Primo 60 will be around for many years to come and give me hours and hours of satisfaction and well worth the price.”

    Hi – I have a couple of questions about the Primo 60 we have. But also wanted to say how amazingly well it’s going – everyone is blown away by outdoor pizzas, and we’ve got bread, Italian hot pot, even soup, all cooking in it! (Italian beef stew, Stracotti di manzo, 4 hours in the oven, thickened with Orzo, best stew of my life. Some piccies and notes on my blog).

    Thanks Jon

    The oven is doing very well thank you. We have had many social gatherings with friends. We held a pizza party for New Year and catered for about 30 people comfortably. I can surely provide some photos for you. I will dig them out and send them over

    Cheers Jim,

    The Primo is fantastic and has survived it’s first winter without issue.
    I’ve really missed the outdoor cooking through winter as my wife doesn’t have the same passion to eat fresh pizza in the snow as I do! The plans and build for the outdoor kitchen went really well and the Primo really finishes it off, it looks right at home and as soon as we get a clear day, I’ll be lighting it up again. When I do, I’ll send you some photographs.

    The Pizza oven is great thank you! Photo attached – the blockwork has been painted since then! The third time we used it was when our son left for University and we had all his friends round – we cooked 20 pizzas from scratch in just over an hour.

    Many thanks

    Sorry for the overload of pics, can count on one hand how many times we’ve had the oven on in the house since we got our primo. So versatile and the kids love cooking outside, amazing bit of kit!!

    Thought you may like some feed back!

    Really loving it. After four weeks of experimenting with new oven felt i was ready to entertain so invited eight friends over for Pizza Evening. It was successful although still had not cracked the illusive ‘crusty base’ until yesterday!

    Also picked up that wonderful recipes from one of your customers whereby you cook chicken thighs and choritzo in remaining tomato base sauce. Leave in oven to cook slowly. Takes about an hour and delicious

    Thoroughly enjoying the Primo! Had a party last night, I think we did 15 pizzas – terrific summer evening.

    We have had some wonderful pizza gatherings. Recently had a birthday party for my wife, who has a couple of favorites (BBQ chicken) and the starter I mentioned before (Carmelised Onion and Goat Cheese). This is a fairly simply pizza to make and everyone seems to love it to get the night started. I have attached a couple of pictures,

    I purchased my very first wood fired oven this April 2011 with the hopes of learning something new,

    I have been pleasantly surprised with how easy the Rocca is to use, and the guidance provided by the Stone Bake Team,

    Since then the majority of our cooking is wood fired! I have mastered Porchetta and Beef roasts!

    Thanks for your support,

    Hi I brought my primo back in October 2010, and have only recently had the chance to put it to the test, I have cooked several pizzas and even and boned out rolled leg of lamb for the family and I must admit its tastes and cooks beautifully the whole experience of using the oven with friends is great!

    Dear Tom at The Stone Bake Oven Co.

    Thank you so much for coming to our rescue at the 2010 New Forest Show.

    The supplier of our clay oven let us down and then there you were! Lucky for us, as our cookery demonstration called for the production of at least a dozen pizzas a day! You installed one of your Stonebake ovens for us, gave us some wood and even sent one of your staff members across to check all was well.
    Once it was fired up, the oven was amazing and we were banging out pizzas to a gathering crowd of people who could smell the aroma of fresh-cooked Margarita pizzas all across the show ground – no wonder our exhibit one first prize!

    Thanks again for all your help and support and I can thoroughly recommend your ovens…I shall be buying one for myself once my garden is ready in the spring of 2011.

    With best wishes

    I’ve been enjoying my Primo oven for nearly two weeks now. It’s a great tool and a fantastic addition to our garden. The Primo is equally ideal for serving pizza for two, or busting out over 75 pies as we did last Saturday. It makes fantastic pizza and it’s a great party piece. Getting creative with our pizzas has become one of our favorite pastimes, and even a competition! The pizza oven is the new barbecue!! Viva la Primo! Thank You!

  140. Geoff Lai

    Wonderful! This has revolutionised the way I view family gatherings! I don’t have enough superlatives to describe how good this is. The happy, smiling silence of satisfaction as my friends and family tuck in is worth every penny spent. I can’t thank you enough!

    My name is Greg Tutty, I have had my bespoke Stone Bake Oven for a couple of months now, since then we have had some great experiances cooking outside.

    We have had slow roasted lamb, roasted beer can chicken and numerous pizza sessions.

    We have had many great parties, catering for everybody, I look forward to many years of cooking ahead, thanks to Tom and all the team at The Stone Bake Oven Company.
