The Primo 60:
The Primo 60 oven is our compact, affordable wood fired oven exclusively designed and hand cast by The Stone Bake Oven Company in the UK. A perfect centrepiece for any garden, the Primo 60 is ideal for those with limited space. If you wish not to undertake any building work, The Primo can be assembled and ready to use within 20 minutes with the incorporation of the Primo Stand. As standard, the Primo 60 includes 2x cooking floor bases, a oven dome, a stainless steel door and a flue and cap where the colour can be picked at checkout.
The Primo 60: Internal Cooking Floor Size
The Primo 60 has a 600mm diameter internal cooking floor. Unlike other wood fired ovens that use designated cooking tiles inside the oven, the entire floor inside the Primo 60 oven can be utilised as a cooking floor.
The Primo 60: Cooking Capacity
The Primo oven can fit one large, or two small, pizzas in at one time. Alternatively the oven can hold one large roasting tray or two smaller roasting dishes at one time. Please see the capacity diagrams opposite. Due to the optimum temperature it only takes a minute to cook a pizza. The Primo 60 is also ideal for one tray bakes and roasts, if you are looking to cook multiple dishes simulataneously you may opt for one of our larger ovens
The Primo 60: Cooking Capabilities
Like all our Stone Bake ovens, the Primo 60 is capable of a range of cooking environments allowing you to cook pizza, grill, bake, and roast. The Primo 60 is even capable of hot and cold smoking. For those people looking for overnight slow cooking, please see the Primo 60 Kit (requires building work). This oven retains its heat for over 24 hours which is perfect for long, slow cooking. Find all you need in The Stone Bake Oven Company’s Cooking Techniques Guide and our tried and tested Recipes section.
The Primo 60: Heat Up Times & Heat Retention
The Primo 60 oven heats up quickly, reaching maximum cooking temperatures within 20 minutes. Your very first firing will take slightly longer, this is normal. Due to its insulating nature, the Primo 60 oven can retain heat in its core form for over 4 hours, without the need to add additional wood.
The Primo 60: Indoor and Outdoor Installation
The Primo 60 in its core form is designed for outdoor use only. If you are looking to install your oven inside you will need an insulation kit, the installation requirements for the Primo 60 Kit oven adhere to regulations for internal installation.
The Primo 60: Flue Placement
The Primo 60 oven flue is placed outside the oven cooking chamber. This smart design means that when the door is closed, the flue vent is shut off. This flue feature is crucial for maximum heat retention, low wood consumption and especially useful for baking and other cooking techniques in a wood fired oven. Ovens with centralised flue vents in the oven dome result in sub-standard heat retention and higher fuel consumptions.
The Primo 60: Material Composition
The Primo 60’s oven dome is made from an insulating aggregate, meaning excellent heat retention. The Primo 60 oven base is made from a dense, commercial grade material. This material stores heat for longer, ensuring crispy pizza bases and excellent cooking ability for hours on end. Due to the dense and insulating factors of the Primo 60, the oven can be used in its core form, without the need for extra insulation and building works.
The Primo 60: Reinforcement
The Primo 60 Oven is reinforced with Micro Mesh Technology. Micro Mesh Technology sees stainless steel fibres embedded in the oven material, which form a complex mesh within the oven. These fibres allow the oven to expand and contract whilst heating and cooling, ensuring the structural integrity of your oven. Micro- Mesh Technology results in an oven that is designed to last and if you plan to move house or relocate your Primo 60, these fibres will make it safe to do so.
The Primo 60: Weather and Frost Proof
The Stone Bake Oven Company strongly recommends applying the Stone Bake Sealant when using your. Applying the sealant just twice per year is all you need to do to keep your oven protected in the long term from weathering.
The Primo 60: Assembly
The Primo 60 Oven is designed for easy installation. The oven dome is in one piece and the two-part oven base makes for easy manoeuvring. The base fits together with a tongue and groove joint and the dome sits in a recess in the base. For a hands free approach, simply purchase the Primo Stand for an oven that is ready to use right away. Ask The Stone Bake Oven Company for guidance on building a wooden stand. Please note: if you build your own oven stand, you do so at your own risk.
