I have been waiting since May for this beautiful pizza oven to arrive.   I bought it with the money I earn from YouTube ads and clicks to affiliate links so thanks to everyone for your amazing continued support to this channel!

I've created a Pizza for Beginners YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help your learning to cook pizza journey! Enjoy your Pizza Cooking!

This ensures that when a super cool pizza oven comes out I can get it and show it!  Check out the video below where I unbox the Ooni Koda 16, hit my head on the lid and then ignite the oven.

My first thoughts when the box arrived were - that's a very big box!  The delivery man struggled with it and I knew that I would too, at that point.

My husband helped me carry it out into the garden and without him I would have had to drag the box across the floor.

Size-wise it is as big as the Ooni Pro.  With the stone inside it's pretty heavy.  The stone alone is heavy and I will do my utmost to not have to turn it around for a clean.  The L-shaped flame burner is quite amazing and bright!   There are a few early first impressions I would like to share with you.

My first impressions are:

  • it's the same size as the Ooni Pro Wood-fired Pizza Oven
  • the stone has a nice large cooking area
  • the L-shaped flame burner illuminates the oven
  • the brighter the oven the better - I like to see the pizza crust and toppings cook
  • it's a heavy oven, partly due to the heavy pizza stone
  • it was easy to ignite
  • easy to keep clean and maintain and store
  • the flame burner closer to  the front keeps the stone at the front hot  - ideal for cooking pizza
