Shorted out the first time used
When plugged in the first time it shorted out the house. Tried 2 more times with the same result. Tried a different outlet (15amp) & the unit didn't even turn on. Tried again in a standard outlet & the unit still didn't turn on. This item had been stored unopened in original packaging (longer than offered warranty) in a solid garage.Show details
Must have made over 1000 pizzas!
I have had this pizza oven for almost 12 years and it must have made over 1000 pizzas for my family and friends. When the stone gets dirty I leave it on high heat for a couple hours and all grease in the stone burns off. Great product!!!Show details
Can't fault it!
I make the dough in a bread machine, use my imagination for toppings, have had this machine for years, it works perfectly, a pizza cooks in 5 minutes so if making a number of them, the first one is ready when the next one is prepared.
burnt offerings each and every time
i purchased the pizza oven hoping that i could stop using my oven. from the beginning there were problems.although i followed the instructions to the letter my first pizza ( a mccains pizza frozen) burned on the bottom and was still frozen on top. subseqent pizzas also turned out the same. i tried making a fresh dough,thin and crispy,it expanded until it spilled out the sides,it burnt on the bottom and was raw on top. i assigned the pizza maker to the cupboard of bad memories. not happy jackShow details
Friday night is pizza night at ours
I have to say this is the one and only kitchen appliance gadget I definitely use regularly and recommend to friends. I have had it for a couple of years and can’t fault it. I have melted the handles in the paddles - my bad, don’t store them in the pizza oven as you’ll forget heat it up and be left with a mess.
I make my own dough and freeze any cooked pizzas uneaten, but that us very often as they are so yummy. The dough is best rolled out and proved on baking paper. You will also need to dock (prick with a fork) the dough so that you don’t get
Best pizza maker
Love the simplicity and speed of cooking. Pizzas taste authentic because of the stone and its really easy to clean. The only cons would be the size of the paddles but that's no problem, and you need to be careful when opening lid from steam burns, other than that i wouldn't be without one.Show details
Fabulous and versatile
A dream to use, totally love it! Although some people seem to have difficulties using fresh dough with it, I haven't found any problem. A few points to remember though. First, you need to preheat the stone (on high) for 10 to 15 minutes beforehand, so your dough cooks from the underneath while the topping cook from above. Secondly, your stone will get marks on it and will eventually discolor, because you have food directly on it. That is just a fact of life, and it won't affect using the stone. If there are bits stuck to it, just wait for it to... Read more cool and gently scrape them off with the flat of the pizza paddle. The pizza stone I have used in the standard oven for the past 10 years has a complete dark patina now, and cooks better now than it did in the beginning. Preheating with the pizza oven is far faster and more energy efficient that in a standard oven, even with the pizza oven reaching higher temps than a standard oven, so it is far more economical to use, and with the higher temps you get the nice big open holes in the crust, as with artisanal pizzas. It is also fantastic for cooking pita bread, naans, and tortillas, giving superior results to a standard oven or dry-fry pan, cooking them faster and at higher temps more like the traditional cooking methods. And of course, once again, far more economical in power. If you love homemade pizza - it is well worth it. If you don't touch pizza, but love homemade flatbreads - still worth it. If you love both - you have it made! And if you are on your own, especially if you are in a caravan or small flat, definitely worth it. Can also do toasted sandwiches, grilled cheese, even grilled fish (wrapped in foil or in a shallow-sided 'boat' made with two layers of foil).
Dream pizza oven
After going through a personal odyssey to make the perfect pizza, I've arrived here - at what appears to be a simple machine. I couldn't afford a brick built wood fired oven so for years I persevered with the kitchen oven, adjusting the recipes to account for the foibles in the oven, but never really getting there.
I bought the window version and put my first pizza in, avidly watching the window. To my disbelief the cheese started bubbling immediately. I had the thing turned up to the maximum. The cheese was bubbling so furiously it ap... Read morepeared to reach a state of nuclear fusion. When I took it out the cheese was bubbling madly still and I promptly dropped it on the floor, face down of course. My next pizza was very modest in response, respecting the power of this beast. I cooked at a third of the previous setting. Even then in just five minutes out pops a pizza I would happily pay $20 for at a cafeteria. Perfect toppings, and a satisfyingly crispy base. Whilst I'm sorry I sent the first pizza to a kind of fiery hell, this is like the Ferrari of pizza making; you've got to learn to handle the power. In all seriousness, I'm at the end of my journey now. Perfect pizza in 5 minutes. A lot of parks have power outlets and the unit is very portable - pizza by the beach anyone? Pro tip - always use baking paper.
Makes great pizza, definitely worth it.
Single function cookers can be a bit gimmicky and sit in a cupboard unused, but having used this a few times I can say that I will definitely make frequent use of it. It can be awkward to work with fresh dough, but it works very well once you get the hang of it and you can use it for improved frozen pizzas as well.
One quirk I wasn't expecting though - the timer doesn't actually turn the power off, just dings a bell. This is unusual and should definitely have been mentioned in the instructions to avoid the risk of burning your pizzas to a crisp.Show details
A worthy addition to our kitchen
I really agonised about buying The Pizza Maker. What if it sat in our cupboards unused like our waffle maker, or the chocolate fountain or the ice-cream maker? I needn't have worried. We use the pizza maker nearly every Friday night and it cooks pizzas FANTASTICALLY. The bases are crisp, and the top is cooked perfectly. This appliance has paid for itself tenfold. I highly recommend it. PS I notice that one of the other reviewers has said that it doesn't cook home made dough properly. That may well be so. We only ever use store bought pizza bases.Show details
Love the black one with viewing window and deep dish
I bought the New Wave Multi-functional pizza maker (NWKA The Pizza Maker) 3 months ago and have found it to be a very useful and much-used machine. The black one has a viewing window and comes with a removable stone and a non-stick deep dish. I have found that pizzas cooked on the stone cook much better than ones I've made in the oven and take only 5-7 minutes. They smell and taste fantastic! I make my own dough and have also had success using alternative bases made with cauliflower, cassava flour and almond meal etc. The deep dish can be used... Read more with lid closed to cook dishes such as frittatas or with lid open it functions as a non-stick frypan to cook pancakes, rissoles etc. We roll out each pizza on a piece of baking paper, cutting around it to remove excess paper (which might burn), add the toppings, then slide the pizza with paper onto the pizza stone, which is easier than just using the paddles. It is important not to pile up the filling too high or else cheese and other ingredients may melt onto the top heating coil. My only concern is that the pizza oven does not turn itself off when the timer is finished, and you need to remember to manually turn the temperature knob to zero once you are finished with the machine. We usually eat close to where we make the pizzas so I can smell cheese burning on the stone when I have left the pizza oven turned on. It would also be great if you could control the top and bottom heating elements separately, but I guess that would put the price up considerably. All in all this is a great little machine that works well and is good value for money!
Love this Pizza Oven
I have had this pizza oven for 2 years and it totally awesome. We use it at least 2 times a month and it has made too many pizzas to count. They turn out perfectly cooked every time and so quickly. We were considering getting an outside pizza oven but honestly we don't need to anymore as this is so easy and quick to use. I highly recommend this pizza oven.Show details
Finally, perfect pizzas at home!
The Pizza Maker is the best way to make pizzas at home quickly and easily. The base ends up perfectly crisp with everything beautifully cooked and melted on top. Works with a range of pizza bases including really thin low carb and gluten free wraps for a completely guilty free, healthy and delicious experience. Also great for vegan pizzas. It will pay for itself in no time because you won't bother with shop bought pizzas again!Show details
Very quick and easy
Love the pizza maker but the deep dish where you make the omelette not good it stuck and burned , not very good quality dish, but if you just want it for pizza it is great . I tried various basses and they were all good the crust is goodShow details
Fantastic pizza maker
We bought this recently after reading all the reviews and we're not disappointed. We make our own dough and the pizzas are great. Well worth the $$.
We need to buy a few paddles (it came with two aluminium ones). I'm leaning towards wood - does it burn much? Or maybe stainless steel?Show details
