You can’t decide between buying a wood-fired or a gas-fired oven?
We can help you make up your mind.
If you can’t decide whether you want to buy a wood-fired or a gas-fired oven, then we made a comparison.
ADVANTAGES OF A WOOD-FIRED GARDEN OVEN
Firewood imparts a really special flavour to food; bread cooked in wood-fired oven does stir up memories of good old days.
Respect for tradition
That’s the wood-fired oven’s added value. Firewood is the most ancient fuel: the Greeks invented the modern oven that Romans developed introducing clay bricks.
Firewood has excellent features when it comes to heating up the oven.
Alfa recommends the wood-fired oven to:
- people having a house with a gerden
- 4 member families
- people that use the oven every week or every month
- people who love baking pizzas, bread, roasts and lasagne.
ADVANTAGES OF A GAS-FIRED GARDEN OVEN
The gas-fired oven reaches the working temperature in no time as you can set the flame at full power.
The gas-fired oven is certainly cleaner than its wood-fired counterpart; just remove any loose food residue.
Simple and ergonomic
To operate a gas-fired oven, you only need to push the ignition button, turn the knob and wait for the oven to reach the right temperature. It’s not so simple with a wood-fired oven.
Alfa recommends the gas-fired oven to:
- dynamic people
- city dwellers short of space or with a tiny balcony
- single persons or young couples
- people who use it daily or frequently
- people who like cooking pizzas, meat or veg.
