Maximus oven is a wood fired oven made in Portugal used for cooking pizza, bread, meat, fish, vegetables, and other dishes. The oven is 60x60 cm on the inside, 70x70 cm on the outside, and 98 cm high incl. the removable chimney. The oven weights approx. 55 kg. The floor of the oven consists of 4 terracotta tiles. The dome of the oven is a double wall: stainless steel on the inside and aluminum on the outside. Inside the double wall of the oven and also underneath the floor tiles is ceramic blanket insulation to provide heat retention for your cooking. The oven features an innovative stainless steel baffle inside. The baffle makes the hot fire smoke travel back and forth inside the oven thereby extracting more heat from the hot smoke and ensuring cleaner air emmissions into the air. This is the system employed in most modern EPA heating wood stoves, made for the sake of higher heat efficiency and reduced air pollution. Chimney is removable and is made from painted stainless steel for maximum durability.
Prime is the bigger version of Maximus with 90x90 cm cooking surface!
Currenly over 1000 ovens are in use around the world.
Well this is our favorite part! The Maximus has many benefits compared to a traditional brick, precast or clay oven:
Apart from home use Prime and Maximus are a great choice for catering! They provide an excellent alternative to bulky trailer-based ovens. Maximus and Prime can go where trailer ovens cannot go: backyard birthday parties, corporate patio events, parties by the pool, beach, etc. It does not require a trailer and offers the same benefits as a trailer oven but for a fraction of the price: $1200 for Maximus vs at least $15k for a pizza trailer. Maximus can cook 30 12” pizzas in an hour. If you need more you can put 2 ovens side by side. If your team is cooking at a festival, fair, market, or outdoor event you may find it easier to have 2 people operate 2 separate ovens – the ovens can be placed at a distance from each other to ease overcrowding of customers in one place or to serve separate locations (for instance event entrance and food court). Besides, each operator will cook faster without having to wait his turn to use the oven.
There are few cooking activities that can even remotely match the fun of baking in a wood pizza oven in general and Maximus in particular. Whether you are cooking pizza, bread, foccacia or a slow roast cooking in a wood fired oven is more than cooking. It is friends, family, jokes, pictures, videos but above all – unforgettable times. Maximus – great times.
Wood pizza in Maximus is quick and easy!
Maximus pizza oven can make amazing crusty pizza in just 90 seconds after a 30 min. heat up time! You can bake 2 12" pies at the same time and produce around 50 of them in 1 hour!
Maximus oven is not only for pizza!
You can bake real wood fired bread in our ovens, as well as lasagnas, fish, meat, and even fruit. Please see our Food Pictures above for only a very limited selection of what has been cooked in Maximus. Maximus is capable of maintaining bread baking temperature over a long period of time, producing crusty fresh bread!
Maximus is for meat too!
Unlike a traditional bbq grill our ovens will cook your meat evenly from all sides and keep the natural juices inside. You will be surprised to see how juicy the meat from the oven is! Steaks, hot dogs, sausages, London broils, ribs, chicken, and traditional meat dishes can be cooked in traditional clay pots or regular metal ones. Make sure to soak your clay pots for at least 30 min. in warm water prior to putting them in the oven to give them extra heat expansion flexibility as - how should we put this - it's hot inside!
Do you remember grandma's bread?
Our wood fired oven takes about 40 min. to produce a batch of fresh childhood-smelling loafs. You will notice that the speed of bread baking greatly depends on the size and consistency of the dough: if you are baking small buns they may be ready in as little as 12 minutes!
