Cooking Equipment

I Wish I Had …

Once a month I’m going to feature a piece of kitchen equipment that I’m longing for (okay, drooling for).
So, this month I wish I had …

[h3]An Earthfire Pizza Oven[/h3]
Available from Yuppiechef (one of my favourite websites), for the bargain price of only R2,150 (hence the saving up), they had the following to say about this little beauty:

[blockquote]”Make authentic wood-fired pizza’s in your own home, quickly and easily. Even an Italian will agree! This oven was designed first and foremost to make the best pizza this side of Napoli, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t versatile. The bottom half of the oven used with the stainless grid is a handy portable braai, pop on the lid to turn it into a kette BBQ or a smoker.”[/blockquote]

I love that one can use charcoal or wood, and that it converts into a makeshift Smokey Joe, so braai-ing for 2 just got a lot easier! One piece of equipment, multiple uses. Now if I could just make pizza dough …

Get it at Yuppiechef, of course. See: Earthfire Pizza Oven
Email me for my physical address 🙂

      The Birthday Fairy just delivered one to my doorstep … such a lucky girl !!!
      Have a feeling there were ulterior motives though – guessing someone is craving pizza.

    Wow – this will impress any guest coming to your home for pizza! Does it give you that real pizza oven flavour?? I’m keen to try – when I’m off my diet!
