Since the boom in the outdoor living sector wood fired pizza ovens have taken center stage. It has become the center piece of the outdoor kitchen much like the inception of the barbeques in the 1950's. We can see this trend in some of the leading outdoor living magazines. There are only a handful of wood fired pizza oven companies in the US. Most of these wood burning pizza oven companies started importing their products from different countries as opposed to manufacture them. Most of these wood fired ovens are comprised of light weight materials for easy import. These light weight wood fired ovens are not superior in quality or construction. They simply cost less to ship overseas. These companies do not pass the savings on to the consumer. Authentic wood fired ovens are comprised of firebrick and that is exactly the material characteristics Californo uses to manufacture its wood burning ovens. Californo has even taken it one step further by developing and perfecting the high temperature refractory concrete mix which mimics the firebrick in its application. It not only provides the consumer with a substantial savings but also stays authentic to the original form and function.
