22 Jan 15 Kalamazoo artisan fire pizza oven


Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet launched a new version of its popular countertop Artisan Fire Pizza Oven, offering the performance of the original oven in a built-in design.

After years of popular demand, Kalamazoo created the built-in version for people who want an oven set into a wall or masonry structure.

Offering the same performance as its popular countertop Artisan Fire Pizza Oven, the built-in version is ready to cook after just 20 minutes of warm up. A Neapolitan-style pizza bakes in less than three minutes after the oven reaches its highest temperature of 800+ degrees Fahrenheit. The oven also has the versatility to roast meats, fish and vegetables.

People want to cook amazing pizzas at home. They crave the kind of rustic pizza experience they get from a pizzeria – the kind of experience that used to require a massive brick oven, said Russ Faulk, vice president of design for Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. Our Artisan Fire Pizza Ovens deliver the extreme heat needed for making that perfect pizza, but without the extra time and skill a wood fire demands.

Like the traditional wood-fired pizza ovens, the built-in Artisan Fire Pizza Oven is stone-lined. Pizzas cook directly on a hollow-core baking deck. Its honeycombed interior is designed to rapidly change temperature. A ceiling stone radiates heat down to quickly brown toppings.

Two independently-adjustable burners deliver 250 degrees F to more than 800 degrees F of heat that can be tailored for different pizza styles, breads and meat or fish dishes.

Priced at ,295, the oven uses natural gas or liquid propane, and is made by hand in Kalamazoo, Michigan of stainless steel. It will withstand the rigors of a Midwestern winter, or the saltwater breezes of a coastal environment.

08 Nov 11 Ring Of Fire? Man’s Cell Phone Turns On His Oven (Sony Ericsson PDA)

Ring Of Fire? Man’s Cell Phone Turns On His Oven It’s amazing, it’s peculiar, and it’s dangerous. So says a Brooklyn man who’s experiencing some weird occurrences with his cell phone and his stove. Andre’s cell phone starts his Maytag oven whenever someone calls and the phone is sitting nearby. CBS 2 watched the bizarre phenomenon happen. These days it seems like cell phones or smart phones can do just about anything. Just ask Andrei Melnikov, whose smart phone apparently has an unintended “app” unlike any other. That’s because when Melnikov’s Sony Ericsson PDA is near the stove in his kitchen and happens to light up with a call, his Maytag Magic Chef oven lights up to a broil. “The over turns on by itself,” he told CBS 2. “If I want to bake some pie, I just put the pie inside and ask a friend to give me a call. That’s all I have to do.” He said he noticed it last week when the cell phone was just a couple feet from the stove. It rang, and the stove began to beep, indicating the broiler was on high. Gas flames came on from the burners, torching his meat thermometer that was inside the oven. “I see the flames and the smoke coming from here. I was shocked the first time,” he said. Melnikov said this whole thing is beyond dangerous and that he and his wife can’t sleep, fearing that another incident might happen again.” “It could be a fire. If I leave the house and didn’t smell the smoke it could be dangerous,” he said. The company sent a repairman to his home on Monday, but
