Designed for the outdoors, obsessed with multiplicity. The countless hours of refinement have come to fruition and the 2018 Aquaforno is completely unrivalled in its ability to switch function from pizza oven to bbq or to carry out several simultaneously.
The main principal of the Aquaforno design is based around its unique three drum core. Not only does this allow market leading multi functionality but it allows our design team to continually work on more and more options for our wide customer base. Each new accessory is created to be used on any generation Aquaforno so you won't need a new one when you want to add to your portfolio of accessories.
Our black units are made of thick 1mm mild steel, hot dipped for rust protection before being finished with a very high temperature paint designed to operate at temperatures exceeding 600 C or 1100 degrees F. The finish is very effective through our normal operating temperature range and unlike some porcelain coatings will not shatter or splinter with hard impact. We do recommend using the padded backpack for storage when not in use.
Our stainless units are constructed of 430 Grade stainless steel (0.8mm thick). The surface will tarnish from Silver through Gold to a rustic patina but the steel is tough. The high temperature areas will take on a beautiful mottled blue. Our stainless units are happy outside for extended periods (although a cover is recommended) with only the lightest seasonal maintenance just to keep them clean and up to scratch.
The Aquaforno’s unique capability, is the removable water reservoir allowing you to have boiling water on tap whenever the unit is fired up.
All Aquaforno units use high grade stainless steel boilers as these are designed to handle the extended exposure to high heat within the unit.. The boiler can be removed in just a few seconds for easy cleaning. Water can be added at any time although it is not essential if you don't need it.
When considering portability, Aquaforno bags are designed to be worn as a backpack by one user or carried by two people using the carry handles. The 2018 unit also comes with an inner fire resistant carry bag, which can be used separately to spread the weight for ease of transport but also provides a heat proof mat for use on tables or to protect grass.
As all Aquafornos are modular, larger groups can divide up a unit and all carry a section of the Aquaforno easily.
From speedy Pizzas to slow roasts, the choice of food is endless. The 2018 Aquaforno has different cooking heights in the top oven alone and a thermally insulated lid; this assists in the range of possible operating temperatures whilst still allowing you to keep warm and dry your wet clothes.
Home made or ready made - both taste delicious. Check out our recipe suggestions for inspiration or enjoy your old favorites. The Aquaforno cooks up to 20 delicious fluffy baked potatoes simply wrapped in foil in one go or rustle up some fish finger wraps and oven chips to keep the kids happy.
The integrated thermometer ensures you can always get the right setting for your food.
The grills can be used whether your Aquaforno is fully stacked, cooking on the highest level or even if you are using the fire pit as a small portable grill. The vent in the front door will also help you regulate temperature. Steaks, kebabs, burgers, grilled vegetables, or toasted marshmallows, all cook to perfection.
Wood, peat, charcoal or gas. We would always recommend either kiln dried or well air dried logs. You can also kiln dry the wood on the pizza stone when not cooking -an added bonus for those who love foraging for food and generally unheard of on other portable BBQs and pizza ovens.
When the stove is fully up, the grill and stone can be re-positioned to turn the upper section from baking or roasting to smoking. Just seal the rims with aluminium foil, drop the stone onto the base rim, put your wood chips directly onto it. and you are ready for hot smoking anything from a shoulder of pork to ribs. It can even be used with a cold smoke generator for some delicious home smoked salmon, hams or cheeses.
We have added clip on hangers to the design to allow you to dry wet clothes & shoes when you are out and about. The base emits enough heat to allow a dough to rise even on a chilly day and you can even dry your own wood on the pizza stone once the fire has died down.
We certainly hope so! Whether you are a 'ready-made' cook or a real foodie, anything cooked on the Aquaforno tastes wonderfully delicious. You can go traditional or experiment to your heart's content, but if there are any issues, do not hesitate to contact us and we will talk you through how to get the best out of your Aquaforno.Order
