No, all Fuego ovens come ready built with no need for any type of assembly.
It all depends what type of garden, patio or BBQ area design you are intending to achieve and where are you planning to fit the oven. Fuego ovens are designed for outdoor use and do require some building work, so you are able to sit the oven on a stable, levelled surface with a stand structure that can take a weight between 600Kg and 1000Kg (depending on the oven you choose) and complete the installation. You can build your oven stand out of materials that match your oven finish such as brick, stone or even painted concrete blocks. Make sure you take the measurement from the base of the oven (available from our website) before you start to build your stand. We recommend that you consult with a professional landscaper or builder before you carry out any building work.
The recommended stand height to sit your Fuego oven is 830mm to which you add the height of the oven base (70mm) to achieve a total height of 900mm.
All our ovens are set over a steel reinforced concrete base of 70mm thickness, with steel eye bolts set over each corner of the oven for ease of lifting and positioning. Fuego ovens are a heavy piece of kit, so they will need to be machine lifted during installation. You will need to strap some heavy-duty webbing slings through each eye bolt in order to lift the oven securely.
If you are using a builder or landscaper to carry out the building work, he/she will be able to hire or organise for a crane, HIAB or forklift to lift the oven into position. Otherwise, you can also hire a crane mounted truck from your local building merchant to carry out the job.
If you have access restrictions for a crane or crane mounted truck to reach your oven, you can also hire a compact crawler or a hand forklift stacker to lift the oven and help you get it into position.
Fuego ovens are a heavy piece of kit and can weigh between 600Kg and 1000Kg. We recommend that you consult with a professional landscaper or builder before you begin to build your stand or attempt to lift the oven into position. THE OVEN MUST NEVER BE TILTED ON ITS SIDE DURING TRANSPORTATION OR INSTALLATION, AS THE OVEN MAY SLIDE OFF THE BASE AND CAUSE PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR EVEN DEATH.
If you prefer a hassle free option and do not want to carry out any type of building work or landscape design, you can also purchase one of our black steel table stands from our online shop as a ‘ready to go option’ that does not require any type of building work.
“Our Fuego wood oven has transformed our restaurant! As a piece of kit, it is extremely versatile and controllable, allowing us to roast all of our meats and vegetables in the wood burning oven as well as using it as a charcoal grill during service. The flavour of everything coming out of the Fuego clay pizza oven is incredible due to the amazing smoky, charred tones added to the smell and taste of everything that’s cooked in it. It is not expensive to run as all the kiln-dried wood we use heats the wood fired pizza oven pretty quickly and it retains its temperature really well, only needing to add logs to the fire a few times over the course of service.”
“We wanted a traditional wood oven that ticked lots of boxes, for us it had to be made of brick for the authentic feel, have amazing functionality and great quality. Our Fuego clay pizza oven ticks them all. Our pizza nights are such a fantastic feature for the guests that stay in our holiday cottages and it’s a great way of bringing friends and family together for making those special memories. Highly recommended”
“The traditional methods used within its construction and the unrivalled ability to retain heat have thoroughly impressed us. It has been a welcome addition to our BBQ and live music events. We cannot recommend the Fuego brand enough and it has been extremely popular with our chefs and customers alike.”
