Separate combustion chamber

In an indirect fired oven, combustion takes place in a separate chamber from the one where food is cooked isolating the two compartments between them.

This type of ovens, thanks to its particular technology is able to reach high temperatures in a short time, keeping the temperature steady and allowing to cook for many hours, shortening the preheating time of typical traditional ovens.

This system also allows you to use in proportion very little wood for cooking, for extreme comfort, convenience and a substantial saving in time and money.

Cooking with wood fire guarantees unbeatable results in terms of perfect cooking of food, fragrance and a strong fat reduction, thanks to the high caloric power generated.
