Why Choose a Multi Fuel Oven?


Cooking with wood and charcoal gives food a wood-fired flavor that can't be replicated.


The Ooni Karu 16 Gas Burner gives you additional temperature control and convenience.


Choose and change your fuel as you wish! Gas for consistency and low-maintenance cooking, and wood/charcoal for a smokey, aromatic flavor.

Ooni Karu Rookie Attempt

Still a ways to go...but some initial positive results using my new Ooni Karu. Liked most aspects of it but first few pizzas sticking to new stone was unexpected as was the speed at which the door glass got really dirty & hard to see through. Going to work on a system too ... you really do need 2 people to do it all right ... bottom line...going to enjoy perfecting it!

Who needs a great big Pizza Oven

The Ooni Karu 16 may be small in size but gee it performs well. Have only tried it with gas but it heated up in less than 15 minutes as claimed. It is important to use an infrared heat gun to make sure your bottom stone is as hot as the air temp (I cooked at 400C) Pizza's cooked in 60 seconds and were excellent. Don't buy the 16" pizza paddle as it is too wide to turn pizzas which you need to do every 20 seconds. I thought I could transport this Pizza oven around to mates places easily but at 28kg it takes 2 people to lift it comfortably. If you want a portable oven, buy the Ooni Portable, not the Karu. I am going to buy the trolley and a 12 inch paddle and set it up for good on my deck. Also, on gas there is no smoke emitted from the chimney so it can be used under a roofed alfresco area. I guess using wood will be another issue. Am loving it.

Small but mighty pizza oven

This is a great pizza oven and is really easy to use - first go was experimenting, but getting a good feel for how it works. Heats up quickly (with both wood or gas) and most importantly makes great pizza. Have also tried ‘oven’ potatoes that were a hit.
Very pleased with the purchase and glad it lives up to the hyperbole.
