I received the Cru 30 as a surprise Christmas gift. I have used it twice and had good results. My family and guests have been treated to some delicious pizzas. I am still learning how to build a large enough fire at the start, so it will last through a few pizzas. I also discovered it I build the fire too hot at the beginning, I need to wait a few minute before putting the pizza on the stone floor because I burned my first pizza severely on the bottom. I do wish the fire would last a little longer though. I was also wondering if your company has thought about putting out a cookbook specifically for the Cru 30 oven to help us think outside the pizza box. I would recommend this stove. It would be helpful to have a few more directions included with the kit like ideal fire size, type of wood, and a warning about burning the bottom of the pizza if initial fire is too hot. I would recommend this to those not ready to spend the time and money to build a brick oven. It worked fine and it is portable.
Overall a great oven. I am a little disappointed with the temperatures I am able to achieve. We own a large commercial wood fired pizza oven that we can maintain at 800-1000 degrees F. Unfortunately the owners manual forbids those high of temperatures. I did a ton of research and to my knowledge this is the only oven with an insulated top. For that reason and my expectations of temperature we selected the Cru model 30. I assume I will figure out how to get the same crispy crust that I can get out of our commercial oven but for right now I am a little disappointed. Again overall a great product, I am just spoiled with a true casted refractory oven. Thanks
HI Ethan, Thank you for taking the time to review your oven. We are changing the directions because you 100% can cook in your Cru 30 at 800-950F.
Hello hope all is well. Here is my Professional opinion on the Cru Ovens. I think there are built great and easily moved and transported. They hold temperature very well once hot and are easy to work with. I do think the coal rod handle to move the wood around that comes with the oven needs to be longer then it is, because while using the oven you have to be very cautious not to burn yourself on the metal surroundings of the openings and it gets really hot fast. I think if the rod was a little longer it would be perfect. Also I bought three of your ovens and one of the slate insides came in already broken during shipping. I will be reaching out to see if I can get a replacement. But overall I am very pleased with the oven. Thanks again for getting these ovens to me fast. I would Definitely recommend this oven for professionals and at home cooks/ chefs. Thank you Chef Mike Santos with Meez Market and Catering www.meezmarket.com
