While ACR has a reputation for high quality wood burning and multifuel stoves, the company has recently added an ACR pizza oven range. Even at first glimpse this seems like a perfect fit for the company’s existing products. However, when you bear in mind that these are log fired Italian designed pizza ovens, it makes even more sense!
Branching out into ACR pizza ovens
It is common knowledge that whatever happens in the USA tends to happen in the UK at some point, so the use of pizza ovens continues to grow in popularity. Companies such as ACR are extremely good at reading the market, but they don’t necessarily “jump on the bandwagon” at any cost. The woodburning/multifuel stove industry is littered with companies that have sometimes failed to put quality first in their rush to market. This is not a mistake ACR make.
The new ACR pizza oven range is perfect for garden BBQs and due to their size and weight; they are portable to varying degrees. These are not static devices which are placed in the corner, although they can be located in one place, giving you numerous options. The range consists of quality products, well-designed, incorporating the latest technology and already proving extremely popular!
Have you seen the ACR Bravo Pizza Oven?
The ACR Bravo Pizza Oven is the smallest pizza oven of the new range which incidentally makes it extremely portable. As you will see from the image, this product incorporates the same look and design of the pizza ovens you see in takeaway shops – albeit smaller. It looks the part, it is the part, hence growing demand for the ACR Bravo Pizza Oven.
The dimensions of the ACR Bravo Pizza Oven are as follows:-
• Width 600 mm
• Depth 624 mm
• Height 872 mm
• Width 450 mm
• Depth 500 mm
• Height 190 mm
This particular model weighs in at just 27 kg and has a Nero black finish. So what else does the ACR Bravo Pizza Oven offer?
Cook the ultimate traditional Italian style pizza
This Italian designed pizza oven is manufactured in Europe and therefore abides by all of the relevant safety regulations. You will be surprised to learn that it can reach temperatures up to 500°C in just 30 minutes, all in a very safe environment.
This is because of the steel outer body which incorporates a stainless steel inner and premium insulation material. This works in two ways; the design of the ACR Bravo Pizza Oven protects you from the heat, but it also retains the vast majority of heat within the body of the oven. The less heat that escapes, the more efficient the oven and the better the end result. The chamotte base in the ACR Bravo Pizza Oven allows you to achieve that authentic pizza crispiness we all crave!
So, while the ACR Bravo Pizza Oven maybe the smallest in the ACR pizza oven range, it certainly has a lot to offer. One to consider if this is your first move into the pizza oven market.
What should you expect of the ACR Vita Pizza Oven?
The first thing that you will notice with the ACR Vita Pizza Oven is the storage area immediately under the oven, as well as the side shelves. These are extremely useful when it comes to cooking in your garden because as we know the ACR range of pizza ovens can cook more than just pizzas.
Before we take a look at the design and functionality in more detail, it is worth noting the increased dimensions of this particular oven:-
• Width 1119 mm
• Depth 724 mm
• Height 1816 mm
• Width 600 mm
• Depth 530 mm
• Height 280 mm
As we touched on above, the ACR Vita Pizza Oven is larger than the Bravo oven and comes in at 74 kg. Available in Nero/Rosso, black and red, it is not difficult to see why this pizza oven is proving popular.
The body of the ACR Vita Pizza Oven
The core design and body of the ACR pizza oven range is the same. So, the ACR Vita Pizza Oven also has a steel outer body, stainless steel inner body and insulation to protect you from the heat, retaining as much heat as possible within the oven. As you can see from the images, the front of the oven has an extremely tight seal which ensures that no heat escapes.
The ability to reach up to 500°C in just 30 minutes, together with the chamotte oven base, ensures that your pizzas will be perfect. In years gone by you may have wondered how takeaway shops created that traditional crispiness in an Italian pizza, well you can do that with the ACR Vita Pizza Oven.
Many people fail to realise that while making pizzas is obviously the main idea behind the ACR Vita Pizza Oven, you can also use it for roasting, slow cooking and an array of other mouthwatering delicacies.
Big is beautiful with the ACR Vita Max Pizza Oven
It is fair to say that the ACR range of pizza ovens are extremely easy on the eye and perfectly designed. The ACR Vita Max Pizza Oven is the larger of the ACR range with an extended storage area and side shelves. The extended oven dimensions mean that you can increase the volume of food you can cook. So, more pizzas for your guests!
The basic dimensions of the ACR Vita Max Pizza Oven are as follows:-
• Width 1332 mm
• Depth 827 mm
• Height 1922 mm
• Width 750 mm
• Depth 700 mm
• Height 280 mm
As you would expect, being the largest pizza oven in the ACR range, it is also the heaviest at 120 kg. Like the Vita pizza oven, it also comes in Nero/Rosso otherwise known as black and red and black.
Let’s get the party started!
All of the ACR pizza ovens use the same materials with a steel outer body, stainless steel inner body and premium insulation. This results in maximum heat retention, allowing the oven to hit temperatures of up to 500°C in just 30 minutes – all within an extremely safe environment.
Many people are cautious of using outside cooking equipment, but the ACR Vita Max Pizza Oven is very easy-to-use. The inclusion of a chamotte oven base ensures that you will be able to create your own traditional style/flavour pizzas. Just like those you buy at the Italian pizza takeaway.
The key to the success of the ACR pizza oven range is the fact that they incorporate the same design and level of heat retention. The ACR Vita Max Pizza Oven is the larger of the products in the range but we know from initial feedback that both the Vita and Bravo ovens are also proving extremely popular. It will depend upon the size of oven you require, the space available in your garden and whether you want a more mobile product. That said, whatever you’re looking for, you will find it in the ACR pizza oven range.
