What’s the oven made of?
The outdoor oven is made entirely from 3mm thick (0.12in) corten steel sheets.
Corten is a steel alloy that forms a protective layer of rust on its surface. When you order the outdoor oven, you will receive it without any rust. As soon as you place your oven outside, where it will be subject to different weather conditions, the rusting process will set in. Depending on where you live, the process of turning from blank to rusty steel can take between a few months up to a year.
The steel is meant to rust in order to form a protective coating. In the first phase of the rusting process, some flakes of rust might come loose, but after a while this will stop and the oven will get its final look.
The top part of the oven holds two baking stones made out of high-quality cordierite. This material has very low thermal expansion, which makes it ideal for using in ovens. The stones can withstand temperatures of over a thousand degrees (Centigrade) and are food grade.
The cordierite baking stone has an open structure, which means you should never clean it with soap. The stone is best cleaned by using a dry brush, and if it is really dirty you can use warm water. Only use the outdoor oven when the stones are completely dry.
The outdoor oven is made entirely from 3mm thick(0.12in) corten steel sheets. When assembled, the oven is 85cm (33,5in) high, 37cm (14,6in) wide and 40cm (15,8in) deep.
