Here we are going to run through some of the commonly asked questions when we chat through an outdoor kitchen project.
What surface can the oven sit on?
This is the number one question when discussing outdoor kitchens with our customers. Some of our ovens have stands they can sit on, which have been incorporated into the final designs of some projects. Most of the time, however, the oven is to sit on a work surface. We would suggest if you are thinking of topping your outdoor kitchen surface with stone, concrete, thick slate or Dekton then the oven can sit directly onto the surface without causing any damage. A few of our ovens can sit onto a wooden surface. Always operate with caution with porcelain, marble and granite.
These materials can be sensitive towards heat transfer and heating and cooling over time and may crack. We would recommend raising your oven off of the surface on separate blocks, therefore allowing air to flow under your oven and cool the hot air passing downwards.
Can I extend the flue out of my outdoor kitchen?
This question has a couple of variables. The short answer is yes, the flues’ on the ovens we sell can be extended. Call our sales team for more details.
Sometimes, depending on the outdoor kitchen and the complexity of the project, you may not need to extend. If you have a high ceiling or pitch and open sides, the oven will produce little smoke if you burn the right fuel. When extending, be careful if you need to add a bend to your flue. Do not add 90 degree bends as this will be detrimental to the airflow, install maximum 45 degree bends to avoid this issue.
Can I hook my oven up to mains gas?
Some of the ovens we offer can be hooked up to mains gas. Call our team to discuss your options.
