Let us answer this FAQ with a new Q for you:
Have you ever eaten steak, meat, fish or roasted vegetables cooked at 932˚F (500˚C)? Get ready to have your mind blown.
Ooni Karu will cook everything and anything (okay, okay - maybe not ice cream). Ooni Karu is super versatile and able to cook at low and slow temperatures for breads and chicken dishes. You can also fire up to pizza cooking temperatures which are also perfect for searing a beautiful steak.Last updated:
Absolutely not! It’s very easy to set up and use Ooni Karu. Normally, the hardest part about making amazing pizza is getting an oven that is hot enough to make it the right way. That used to be difficult and expensive but now Ooni Karu is here to help!
And if you want to experiment, or just want to talk about pizza and cooking, we’re always here to offer advice and tips. Ooni Karu will come with recipes in the box and our YouTube channel will have step-by-step instructions and guides by the time Ooni Karu is shipping to Kickstarter backers.Last updated:
There aren’t a lot of ovens that can cook at 932˚F (500˚C). Think about it: that’s twice the temperature that an average kitchen oven or barbecue can reach. That means you can make restaurant-quality pizza, steak seared to perfection and other meats, fish and vegetables cooked in a matter of minutes. All with an authentic wood-fired flavour. Again… yum!
Ooni is a team with engineers and product designers with smart person brainy brains dedicated to making Ooni products amazing, innovative and unique.

Ooni Karu is portable, can cook at a range of cooking temperatures, has a custom-made stone baking board and more. It is everything you need in an outdoor oven.Last updated:
Ooni Karu will ship out in a neat 64 x 41 x 20cm (25.2 x 16.14 x 7.9”) package weighing 15kg (33lbs).
For bundles, the packaging will be approximately 70 x 50 x 40cm (27.5x20x16”) and weigh 17kg (37lbs).
These measurements are a projected estimate but they will be very close to final sizes.Last updated:
Ooni Karu is compatible with our existing Ooni Gas Burner and it takes less than 2 minutes to set up this way. You can order this directly from Ooni.Last updated:
Ooni Karu has been designed to fire up with wood and charcoal using our newly designed burner grate. The existing Ooni Pellet Burner will physically fit the oven but this isn’t something we would recommend.Last updated:
Absolutely! In the unlikely event that you need one (did you notice how rugged Ooni Karu is?!), there is a 1-year warranty as standard. You can extend this to 3 years of warranty for free by registering your Ooni Karu at ooni.com/warranty.Last updated:
