Revolving Brick ovens have many benefits vs. old school fixed deck ovens. Since it appears that brick ovens are here to stay why not enjoy the benefits of modern technology combined with old world charm and functionality.
Our current state of affairs requires that operators are smart and utilize methods that are both efficient and user friendly due to competition and an unskilled work force. High speed production with consistency are key to success in this area. When you add simplicity and easy training of unskilled labor it is a no brainer.
So the benefits are:
Brick Oven Pizza that is exceptional.
Consistent Baking Temperatures with hot spots or cold spots. Thsi is because the entire cooking surface is usable and moves the pizza around for you. No more having to constantly rotate the pizza and find the right spots because the cooking surface is always being reheated evenly. No more worrying about keeping the fire at the right temperature because the wood fire is not the main heat source.
Labor saving because a pizza man can work the oven (not stuck on it every second watching the pies so they don’t burn) and he can make pizza too.
Peace of mind for the owner because he doesn’t have to find skilled oven workers and can train someone to use the oven in minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1QHL_xo9ag&t=26s
These ovens are efficient and have a high thermal mass: Thermal mass is the ability of a material to absorb and store heat energy. A lot of heat energy is required to change the temperature of high density materials like concrete, bricks and tiles. They are therefore said to have high thermal mass. Lightweight materials such as timber have low thermal mass. Which means even consistent baking with a high temp insulation that holds the heat-saving fuel.
Both the fast casual pizza chain and Mom & Pop places benefit equally from the ease of operation, durability and consistency with high production when needed making these New York Brick Ovens the way to go.
