Summary: It works ok, nobody can figure out how to get the pizza out of the oven yet, wihout smooshing it , maybe they need to give more instructions , veeeeeery poor, manufactuer fault, will write another review , when i contact them came fast on time from vendor
Summary: My impatience is the only thing wrong with this product. Because it uses a pizza stone, the instructions call for 30 minutes of pre-heating before cooking a pizza. The double-wall construction makes it safe on the countertop. It gets hot, but won't burn you if you brush against it; the manual even says you can use the top as a plate warmer. It does a fine job on pizza and other similar items.
Summary: My old pizza oven recently died and I needed a replacement. The door on this Cuisinart is attached and swings down, then you have to slide out the grate with a spatula or anything else you can find to avoid burning your hands. I much prefer the door / grate combination, where you can just grasp the handle, pull out the door, and slide the pizza onto a waiting pan.
