An amazing new invention which lets you cook a delicious pizza in a fraction of the time it usually takes has been invented by the British and it’s going to be a lot more affordable than expected.
Pizza may be the nation's favourite "fast food", but for some people it's just not fast enough.
Launched on crowdfunding site Indiegogo, the all new stone bake pizza oven claims it possible to bake a Neapolitan pizza in less than 2 minutes, in fact, just 90 seconds!
The lightweight, portable, wood and gas fired stone floor oven called the “Roccbox” cooks at temperatures much higher than a conventional oven.
"A temperature of 930°F (500°C) is required in order to achieve the optimum pizza cooking environment," the British company behind Roccbox states on its Indiegogo page.
"Roccbox’s porous stone floor crisps up the pizza from the base up whilst the rolling flame cooks the pizza top down resulting in an exceptionally quick and evenly cooked pizza."
The Roccbox can be used to cook up a few other delicious meals as well, such as roast vegetables, caramelise meat and crisp up fish and fluffy breads.
Traditional stone floor ovens are known to be extremely large, heavy and take a long time to heat up, they are also relatively expensive, which means that many of us out there don’t get to enjoy the tasty food they create.
Weighing only 20kg, Roccbox is convenient enough for one person to carry, and heats up to 930°F in just 15 minutes.
It is available now on Indiegogo at a price of $479 (£340) plus shipping. Final selling price will be a bit higher.
The company has already shattered its $100,000 funding target, despite having a month left to go on Indiegogo. At the time of writing, it had raised $404,384 from 917 backers.
"Making it possible for anyone to own a stone bake oven with even the smallest outdoor space and a limited budget has been a dream of mine since I started The Stone Bake Oven Company 6 years ago," said Founder and CEO Tom Gozney.
"Using the highest quality, commercial-grade materials meant that nothing was compromised during the design and manufacturing of Roccbox."
