Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It is perfect!
Posted by Samir Nissin on 25 September 2014
I purchased your oven through a dealer in California and had it shipped to New Delhi. Just the pictures in your instructions was detailed enough to help my father build your oven. Thank you so much for a well made product.
When the moon hits your eye like a big Pizza Pie… that's Amore!
Posted by Dude on 4 November 2012
After months of searching for a pizza oven form, I choose brickwoodovens.com Grande model. Although I am a "do-it-yourselfer" I did need some help with the block work and fire brick. But afterwards, I was able to put my own spin and additions on the final design. This form made the entire project possible and I could not have done it without Kevin's help. He answered all my questions and gave me suggestions around minor problems with my design. Would do it again in a heart-beat! Here is a video of my project.
3 Years & Going Strong!
Posted by Janet Gallum-Craig on 2 February 2013
Normally I don't write reviews, but noticed the my oven door still looks brand new (after 2 years) while my China made BBQ door with wood handles are dried out and faded / cracking - and we bought both at the same time. Thanks for making a great quality product! Door is great - oven is great!
Happy Wife.. Happy Life!
Posted by Judith Kawczynski on 2 July 2014
After years and years of kicking the can, we finally decided to build our dream oven. We kept a binder of ideas of how we wanted to build our oven, and then bought the 28" oven form at the last minute. Glad we did as we were able to incorporate several "borrowed" ideas off other oven exteriors. Our oven "Bella" (grandkids named her) is truly a part of the family now as we experiment almost nightly with new foods and flavors. It has been a very enjoyable experience and wonderful customer service.
Excellent Quality, Service and Materials
Posted by Chuck C. on 17 July 2014
Our son-in-law used our form and was able to remove it and then we used it again for our form and oven. The support and communication with your company has been top of the line, and we have asked several questions, which were answered promptly. We love our oven and will cook the first pizza today with the curing fires now finished. I have and will continue to recommend your company and materials. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
Great Value for the Money
Posted by Patrick Duran on 18 December 2012
Good quality accessories. I wasn't expecting a much at the low price, but when I got my order I was pleasantly surprised! Well packaged too - would recommend.
Great Concept & Easy to Build
Posted by Joseph M. on 17 July 2014
Great concept, great to build, the greatest to use. I can't get enough of pizza, grilled meat, vegetables and bread. There's a special taste you can't duplicate on a coal grill.
Well Made American Quality
Posted by Tom Hart on 14 June 2013
Great quality door that's American made. It can be done! Love the color combo with the honey color wood handles. Well Done!
The Mattone Barile Pizza Oven Kits are Incredible!
Posted by Ernest Moranda on 16 June 2014
I am very pleased with my pizza oven kit, I have not been able to build my oven yet but am looking forward to the build. The components are top quality and the online support is 5 stars!
Well thought out kit. Everything went together as shown in directions.
Posted by Michael F. on 2 August 2014
I picked up my form and materials from Superior Landscape supply and put it together as shown in the directions. We followed the directions to a T and build a beautiful oven. The oven works better than we expected. We used it during our daughters wedding reception at our home.
My friends can't believe I built this oven!
Posted by Jose B. on 17 July 2014
Love it! My friends can't believe I built this oven! Easy, fun, and I did it. Instructions are easy to follow. I built mine in small increment of a day here a day there so It didn't cost me chucks of money at one time. I'm so happy. Will build another one again.
Fun for Big Kids!
Posted by Doug D. on 23 September 2014
My boys had fun mixing cement and laying block. Our oven came out perfectly!
This thing Rocks!
Posted by Brad F on 12 October 2013
Not only are the written instructions clear and easy to follow, Kevin was always available to answer even the dumbest questions I have. This oven is the envy of the neighborhood! We have done steak, BBQ chicken and even chicken wings - go ahead and experiment, you can do a ton with it! Not just pizza! It's a Do-It-All Oven!
Exactly what we needed to complete the outdoor kitchen!
Posted by Rebecca Marler on 4 April 2014
Thank you for our product - it MADE our outdoor kitchen. Our son-in-law made the oven and it works very well. We are very pleased with the final outcome and the pizza place down the street has seen the last of our family!
Came Out Better Than We Thought it Would
Posted by Taylor Made Landscape on 5 August 2013
This product was efficient and easy to use in the installation process of the brick pizza oven. We are a landscape contracting company and my mason's found it to be very useful to create a beautiful shape. Our customers were very satisfied and thought it came out better than they had imagined.
We bought the Mattone Barile and Love it!
Posted by Diane D. on 17 July 2014
We bought the Mattone Barile Grande package to help build our pizza oven. The form was a big help along with the directions on the website. The fire blanket was really thick and the over door is very high quality. I would recommend getting the package over buying the pieces ala carte. We love our pizza oven!
This will be how all wood fired ovens are made in the future.
Posted by T.D. Elliot / Nebraska on 13 June 2013
Words can not describe how easy this oven was to build. After 2 years of research, I finally pulled the trigger on building our oven and built it with the Cortile Barile. It really only took about 2 hours to pour the oven. Building the base was easy and finishing the oven was easy. I should have done this 2 years ago.
WORTH EVERY MINUTE & EVERY PENNY!
Posted by W.C. Harris on 7 June 2013
While the refractory was a bit tough to find, we were able to build the oven quickly and it dried in just days. My son and I finished the oven when he was home for the weekend and after a full week of slow curing, we have a pizza party on Day 7. IT WAS WORTH EVERY MINUTE & EVERY PENNY!
I had a lot of fun building the oven and your instructions were dead on!
Poster by John Cotie on 2 February 2015
We really enjoy our pizza oven and have had many parties with up to 25 people. We make at least 17 pizzas at each party. Since building the oven we moved and took the pizza oven with us. It was an interesting adventure but arrived in one piece and it looks great right by the ocean. The new location will be its final resting place. Thank you for all your help!
I just wanted to tell you that I have never experienced such wonderful customer service!
Posted by Alejandro Haag on 27 October 2014
The folks at BrickWood Ovens are so friendly and customer service oriented. I would have to agree with all the reviews, they're so right!
Came out better than expected
Posted by Anna Parker on 2 July 2014
We were nervous at first to spend a large amount of money on the DIY pizza oven, but it came out great. The instructions made it very clear and the entire process was amazingly simplistic. My husband has made over 100 pies in the first week (he makes the dough too). Great product and would highly recommend!
Arrived quickly and went up fairly fast
Posted by Mike Sunsal on 24 July 2014
Fast shipping and the oven project went up as described in the instructions. Will use again for future clients.
Made this oven for my Italian mother
Posted by Terrell Siskani on 22 July 2013
I tried to have it made in time for Mother's day but missed it by a couple of weeks. Finished the oven by Fathers day and my parents love it! It was easy to build and the food coming out of it is amazing.
NOT Blowing Smoke!
Posted by Matthew Kekoa on 30 October 2013
Very good quality, easy to install and works perfectly.
Posted by Paulo M. on 20 July 2013
Arrived almost overnight and we were building that weekend! Price, Shipping & Oven Kit = 5 Stars!
We all had a wonderful time building this oven!
Posted by Tim McKinney on 2 February 2015
We all had a wonderful time building this oven. It has been a long awaited goal for my family, and they all got to help in many ways. It has been even more fun firing it up and cooking a great dinner for us all! Your kit and highly detailed directions were fantastic, and have earned me numerous congratulations on my accomplishments.
Goes with my Big Green Egg
Posted by Jason Remlan on 20 July 2014
Made the dome oven into our new outdoor kitchen - this was the centerpiece. Now I got something for everybody. Grill, Egg and Pizza Oven. The oven went together quicker than I thought it would, less than the stated 2 hours. Finished product looks and works great!
Posted by P. Ursy on 14 June 2013
Great DIY project at a great price!
Now you're cookin'
Posted by Mike McDaniel on 27 February 2013
I'm an experienced contractor, but this oven was for me. Form was a little difficult to press together, but once assembled, it made formation of the barrel a walk in the park. Best part was having instructions in good English by someone with a sense of humor. Be forewarned - they call for nearly ten days of drying and curing time. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS! This isn't their 1st rodeo!
Posted by Seth B. on 17 July 2014
I am just finishing my oven and am happy with the form and the directions that were provided. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for one thing. In the directions, I was instructed to buy enough ingredients for 500lbs of high temp mortar, which is way too much mortar. I used the Mattone Barile w/Insulation form and I'm very happy with the oven.
Building the oven was easier than building the base.
Posted by Tommy Marra on 6 June 2013
Building the oven was easier than building the base.. And building the base was easy! Excellent idea!
Posted by Mike on 3 November 2013
The foam mold worked great. I was able to take out the form in one piece. I did move the legs out about 4" before I built the rear wall to make it easier to pull the legs out. The square chimney form did not come out easily. I had to smash the Styrofoam to get it out. That made a bit of a mess. The directions were great as well. Easy for anyone to build.
Posted by Dane Redmond on 15 September 2014
Received kit 2 days after ordering and built the oven in just 3 hours by myself. It was very easy to build and works amazingly well. Would recommend.
Very Happy with our oven!
Posted by Victor Elgin on 12 July 2014
Pleasurable experience. Built my oven with my 78 year old father, probably our last project. God bless.
Posted by Anderson Shoemaker on 31 July 2014
Received the kit in 3 days from the order date, so it had to sit in the garage until we were ready with the base. The base directions were very detailed and easy to follow. The oven went together exactly as shown on the directions and we had no issues. After a lot of research going into this oven, I'm glad I chose BrickWood ovens. Quality company and would recommend.
Review by Energy Engineer
Posted by Miguel P. on 6 August 2014
The best product for my energy saving project!!
The form is great.
Posted by Robert F. on 17 July 2014
The form is great. I built a beautiful oven and followed most of the plans. I made some minor changes by adding to the tabletop and building in a damper into the chiming. Other than that it's all about the same and it works great. In time I will learn the oven better. My first pizza party was a total success. The comments were," This is the best pizza I've ever had". What a great party that was!! I highly recommend following the plans and using the form. Also the price on the ceramic wool is the best deal anywhere. Thanks BrickWood Ovens!
Posted by Mark on 16 February 2014
Very happy with the building process and happier with the result.
The form was great.
Posted by Ray R. on 27 July 2014
The form was great. To be perfectly honest the plans you posted were very thorough. I enjoyed making the oven, and I'll begin the initial firing of the oven.
The Pizza Oven Form Worked excellent!
Posted by Charles M. on 17 July 2014
I also like the high temp mortar that you have on you site. Saved me lots of time and money! Oven works great!
Love our oven!
Posted by Michael V. on 24 July 2014
The foam form made our oven a breeze to build!
Hi Kevin! Attached are the pics from my project… the oven came out great! Your instructions were very easy to follow. Never did any brick work before this. You can use me as a reference anytime. Let me know if you like.
Posted by Charles Wrigley on 27 June 2013
Almost bought one similar but decided to keep looking. Glad I found your website. We got the Cortile and was able to build the base and oven in one day. The oven is perfect and works better than expected.
Flawless delivery to Anguilla
Posted by Richard Uibel on 4 July 2014
Ordered this kit and had it all shipped to Miami - then cargo to Anguilla in the Caribbean. Everything arrived well before departure and the order was 100% correct (we actually got more firebrick than shown in the kit). The order cleared and arrived well within our window and the staff at BrickWood made the process of shipping overseas very easy.
Fit is perfect!
Posted by T. Cupp on 28 July 2013
Great quality! Perfect fit!
Posted by Mike Rose on 2 August 2014
Everything came out perfect and the directions were flawless. The castable was easy to put in the molds and we just punched it into place. My kids said it was a Daddy Size Play-Doh mold. All the parts fit together nicely and the final oven looks great. We've got pie after pie coming out - Fun!
Posted by James C. on 17 July 2014
Excellent product. It looks great!
Posted by B. House on 26 October 2013
Fired up the oven 5 times so far no heat loss.. Blanket was easy to install..
Posted by P Edwards on 15 June 2013
Great product, made the build 100% easier!
Posted by Valerie on 4 August 2014
I purchased this for my father and he had so much fun building his brick oven. I did not realize that the kit would include accessories so that was a happy surprise. He has made fantastic pizza in it so far and I'm looking forward to experimenting with bread baking.
Posted by Michael H. on 17 July 2014
I was able to get everything at one location!
Posted by Mark D. on 7 July 2014
The foam form made the project A LOT easier.
Made it mobile
Posted by Terri L. on 20 June 2013
My husband and I love our new oven. We put it on wheels and roll it all over the patio - it's great. Was able to make 22 pizzas last Friday on a single firing.
Posted by Brad Owen on 20 September 2013
The Barile form was easy to use and the raised lines on the form for each course helped me lay the bricks straight and level, my only frustration was that I couldn't get the form out in one piece. I was really hoping to reuse the form.
Posted by Chad on 17 June 2014
The form made the building process much easier!
The form was Awesome
Posted by Barbara W. on 17 July 2014
The form was awesome! The only draw back was it was hard to remove when we were ready to take out had to literally. Cut into pieces to get the form out
My Oven Form Review
Posted by Roy Forster on 31 December 2012
The mold worked very well for forming and installing the bricks. The foam was a little hard and messy to get out but the oven came out looking great.
Posted by Susan on 16 November 2013
The quality of the oven form is top-notch!
This was a Great Idea!
Posted by C. Towne on 2 June 2013
This form saves a ton of time and stress for the average homeowner making their own oven. Simple cuts and complete customizability. I cut a brick width off the bottom of the form to make a lower ceiling and am building a custom door arch and dampable chimney.
A little more work than I thought.. But we LOVE the final result!
Posted by Rich Matthews on 7 July 2012
While it didn't take more than 2 hours to cast the oven, it took about another hour to strip the oven of all that foam. But the result was fantastic. The oven works very well and we saved a lot of money!
Mattone Barile Review
Posted by Steven. L. on 28 August 2014
Worked great, the oven shape was right on the money. Excellent service. Thanks!
I'm really happy!
Posted by Fernando R. on 18 July 2014
Yes, I'm really happy. Now it looks like an original project that I can be proud of. Thank you.
What a good time building, cooking and sharing!
Posted by Mike Abraam on 4 October 2014
This is my first time doing any type of masonry work! It was challenging, but worth every bead of sweat. I highly recommend BrickWood Ovens to everyone!
We had a blast with this project!
Posted by Timothy Long on 2 November 2014
My Wife, daughter and a very hard working neighbor, spent a month of weekends on construction. We are far from masons and the instructions were spot on. The Party is non-stop with great pizza and breads. Thanks BrickWood!
In combination with Crookston's Ox Cart Days celebration and parade, we invited the public to join us and a taste of wood fired pizza from our oven on Sunday afternoon. We offered a taste of pizza and an opportunity to order a whole pizza - all for a free will offering. The Celtic group entertained folks while pizzas were made. Joe Henry (who built the oven) baked about 45 pizzas from 4-6:30pm. This celebration was part of Wesley United Methodist Church's Missional Journey to bring the diverse population in our community together. The pizza and bread oven will be the center of many more engagements with the community.
