  • PIZZA OVEN Its got the Heat

    A friend of mine that was going to do some coating for himself gave me his oven he never used. Glad he didn't. He would have cooked at 600 or higher. The thermostat temp probe was broke!

    This thing has double top and bottom units and separate controls for up and down. It will pull almost 40 amps I stuck in a reg stove thermostat and got the temp right with the dial but I bet if I tried to fire the top and bottom at the same time it would fry it? A reg stove one just does not compare to the org one to handle that kind of amps I wouldn't think? The one I put in was from a self cleaning one but that only uses two elements not what this joker has.

    What I don't understand and maybe Ted would? Both the top and bottom controls have off/low/med/high on them? During the testing with my amp clamp I could see the rise for each setting. I guess its for slow or fast cooking the pizzas? With bottom and top on it could come up to temp fast for sure. I might convert it with the Arbor unit later with a relay that would handle the amps?

    Here is the size of it. Its wider and deeper inside than a normal 30" oven so that will help get some bigger parts in. OD 38x26x22 ID 27.5x20.5x12 Its not a heavy unit just a two man pick it up because of bulk.






    Might be something worth looking into when needing an oven or extra wider one for sure. Its more compact. The only down fall is the 12" inside height.

    I'm guessing the thermostat in that baby only controls a relay. The top and bottom elements are adjustable to control how evenly it heats (so the top of your pizza will brown before the crust burns, etc...you get the drift), and the knobs probably control 3 seperate sections of elements, or by resistance, controls how much voltage is applied to each, and therefore how much heat each one puts out while still maintaining the overall temp with the thermostat. A friend of mine has used a similar unit for powdercoating small pieces for years. My first project (a full-width receiver hitch) was actually done in his. That's what got me started in all this!

      I guess you got the powder bug from the pizza oven There are four wires to each element. They are made it looks like as one the way they go through the ceramic holder. Not real sure if one went bad if you could replace just the one or would have to buy the set? The company is in business but with as many as it has even if one went bad you would be able to keep using it. That's a + I would say

      Do you remember how you used to use it? If you have to set something on the very bottom then I would say use the top and if you can use the rack I guess either one could be used? But might not want the top one maybe so hot? There is sure plenty of places to hang small stuff from with the double heater coils up top for sure. It would also be a good smaller out gassier also. I think its going to come in real handy. But I don't thank the reg stove stat would handle the amp load. I fix latter This gives me 4 ovens and I am going to make a divider to slide into my big oven that can move in two ft sections and that will help when I need the space for a part but don't need the whole oven. I had put in two temp sensors + my clamp one so I can switch to the sensor I need to watch. Might save a few power bucks in the pocket?

      Thanks for the info. Now do I coat or open a carry out PIZZA business I could make it any color for sure
