Euro-Catering Launches Entry-Level Pizza Oven


In keeping with its positioning as a dynamic catering equipment supplier, Euro Catering, is importing another equipment solution that will enable start-up operations, and other caterers seeking an entry-level pizza oven, to access first-rate equipment at a hard-to-refuse price.


The Northamptonshire-based supplier is working with Italforni – an Italian manufacturer with which it has a 20-year relationship – to introduce the EK4 and EK44 single and double-deck electric pizza ovens to the UK market.  This provides those hoping to a take a slice of the booming pizza sector with a viable new choice.



These high-quality, compact ovens come with an aluminium-coated, steel plate cooking chamber, high-performance electric heating elements and highly resistant and efficient halogen lamps. They have a refractory baking floor, to create the perfect conditions for cooking pizza, and separate thermostatic controls to individually control the base of the oven, and its ceiling.  A single-tempered glazed door is counterbalanced, to improve opening and closing.


The ovens can reach a temperature of 450°C and have a vapour-release feature that ensures excess moisture is removed from the oven chamber during cooking.   The EK4 can cook four 13-inch (33cm pizzas) at once, whilst the two-deck E44 doubles this capacity.


As with all Italforni ovens, the thermal insulation of the EK4 and EK44 is based on the use of the best materials and the expertise that comes from Italforni having over 30 years’ experience in the pizza oven market.


Euro Catering’s sales director, Justin Towns, says: “We recognised the need for those entering the pizza sector, or offering pizza as a new menu choice, to have an entry-level oven, at a keen price, but to also have the peace of mind of knowing that spare parts and service will always be available in the years ahead.
“Italforni is a well-established manufacturer, with three decades of high quality service to its name.  The ovens already come with two years’ parts and one year’s labour protection.  Thereafter, the purchaser can rest assured that Italforni will be around to offer any support required.  This distinguishes these entry-level ovens from many others in the market.”
