Ooni Karu Pizza Oven – 3 Months Later
This Summer has flown by and it’s been about 3 to 4 months since I opened up the Ooni Karu Pizza Oven. This video shows the inside and outside of the oven after months of use and I also share my thoughts on the performance of this oven so far. Do I like it?
The outside of the oven still looks fresh. The inside looks good. I haven’t cleaned it yet after all the fire ups I’ve made in there. Wood-fired cooking isn’t the cleanest of fuels but this oven is still looking good!

This oven packs a punch for its size. Using a cast-iron pan you can cook many dishes such as pizza in a pan, sizzler dishes, and casseroles just using the gas burner.
With the optional Ooni Gas Burner you can cook super Neopolitan Pizza and other pizza types you fancy making with the convenience of cooking in your back garden.
The wood burner takes the cooking experience to another level though. This is because you can also cook small breads and dishes on a slow cook at a lower temperature. You can do this by using the Oven door and moving the switch on the chimney to slow the air distribution.
If you leave burning embers in the grate, your oven should maintain an even 200c cook. With a bit of topping up you can effectively manage this oven to cook at the temperature you need for your dish.
The pizza stone retains heat very well and I have found that I need to cook on 410c in the centre of the oven usng this stone (compared to the other Ooni stones where I cook at about 430c).
Overall, I give this oven 5/5. I cannot think of one bad thing to say about it at this point in time! It does everything you need for a 12″ pizza oven; it’s multi-fuelled so you can choose which fuel you fancy using on the day.
Portability/storage size is key for me. And this oven is easy to carry, especially with the stone out.
