A bent-steel dome construction for maximum stability and durability. The dome is formed utilizing all solid-weld construction using 2.5mm 441 stainless steel that is reinforced with a 5mm Corten steel panel. The exterior is constructed using 2.5mm 304 stainless steel & painted surfaced are electro-galvanized before powder-coating for long-lasting corrosion resistance.
Our unique cooking chamber, domed front-to-back and side-to-side, eliminates hot spots and ensures uniform heat distribution. Our proprietary exhaust design allows smoke to exit even when the door is closed for maximum heat retention and consistent cooking temperatures.
Handcrafted Tradition & Experience
Designed & 100% made in Italy by skilled artisans using the highest quality materials & most durable construction methods. Fontana Forni was the first company to manufacture metal, outdoor, pizza ovens back in 1978. Our competitors only began manufacturing metal, pizza ovens during the last decade.
Precise Temperature Control
A stainless steel chimney damper for precise temperature control & maximum heat retention. Our oven door is designed & sized to strike the perfect balance between maximum heat retention and optimum interior maneuverability. A gas burner rated at 36,000 BTUs. This affords us the maximum temperature rating of 900°F / 482.2°C; the highest on the market.
A full 12 centimeters of insulation surrounds the cooking chamber (back, sides, top, & underneath) to maximize heat retention and cooking efficiency. Our oven are so well insulated that the exterior is safe to the touch while at cooking temperature.
Convenience of Gas & Options
Runs on propane (stock) or natural gas (with optional conversion kit). 20 hour run time on max setting with a standard 20 lbs. propane tank. No ash clean up required! Countertop or standalone variations of this model are available.
100% Designed & Made in Italy
Since 1978, our Italian master craftsmen have held themselves to the most exacting standards of quality construction. They pride themselves on building the most robust, durable oven available. We know that there is no other oven on the market that combines quality, performance, convenience, craftsmanship, & durability the way a Fontana oven does.
Several brands on the market manufacture their ovens overseas using inexperienced laborers that tend to cut costs on materials and construction which results in a less durable & inferior performing product.
Superior Construction & Materials
The Margherita Gas is constructed using 2.5 millimeter 441 (interior) & 304 (exterior) stainless steel, 12 centimeter thick insulation, and corrosion-resistant, powder-coated metal. Many other brands use lighter, cheaper materials, lower-grade steel, and synthetic insulation, affecting heat retention and durability.
We utilize all continuous solid-weld construction, not the spot welding and screws you’ll find in many other ovens, which can warp & break under duress of high temperatures.
