I owned a small pizza oven for years. When it was time to upgrade (so I could do bread, potatoes, steaks, etc.) I looked around A LOT. I almost pulled the trigger on another brand. After owning my Cru Champion for a month, I am confident I made the right choice. I love this thing. Well made, easy to use and super functional. Also, customer support has been amazing! Bravo, Cru!
