Vitcas Pompeii pizza oven review
If you have never enjoyed the amazing taste of pizza from a traditional wood fired oven then quite simply you have never fully enjoyed pizza.
Across the Mediterranean most families own some sort of outside wood fired oven for cooking bread, stews and of course pizzas. The thermal mass of the oven heats up quickly to 500 degrees Celsius with the thermal mass radiating heat for exceptionally quick cooking. The rapid way wood burning ovens cook mean they can allow foods to remain moist while perfectly cooked. Pizzas become beautifully crispy but moist and creamy. Perfect!
There are very few pizza ovens on the market that actually replicate the real thing but the Vitcas Pompeii wood fired oven is different. Boasting a realistic traditional look this wood fired pizza oven can become a garden feature. The oven comes in 5 sections which are to be assembled on site. When assembled the oven dome sits on a moulded plinth which allows you to custom make its stand or utility area. The oven can be placed on top of a brick built platform outside or built into a kitchen workspace. The Vitcas Pompeii pizza oven is designed beautifully to fit in with other garden or interior styles and themes including modern or traditional.
The Vitcas Pompeii Pizza oven is manufactured using high quality refractory materials in the United Kingdom; it comes in 5 sections which are fused together using the supplied heat resistant silicone. The oven can cook up to 4 pizzas at a time and can even be used to cook bread or keep food warm during social occasions.
The oven kit includes:
The wood fired oven (in 5 sections) the external dimensions of which are 1,000mm wide x 1,120mm deep x440mm high. The internal dimensions are 800mm high x 400mm wide and 350 kilograms in weight.
Two tubes of Vitcas heat resistant silicone, cast iron door with heat resistant glass, door with thermometer up to 500 degrees, a stainless steel metal chimney flue with cowl and damper, 5 kilograms of Vitcas outdoor oven cement.
We found the oven is quite easy to assemble and with a little basic DIY know how its easy to use the silicone cement. With a little garden / interior design planning this wood fired oven can be a real focal point with many Italian restaurants choosing this oven for their kitchens. If you want something that is truly unique that will get your friends jealous every time they visit then the Vitcas Pompeii pizza oven is the one for you. Out of all the wood fired ovens on the market this is the only one in our opinion that has a truly traditional look with special design potential.
You will never go back once you are used to preparing your own pizza in your very own traditional pizza oven. The Pompeii Pizza oven also gives you the foundation for a whole new way to cook breads, stews, roasts and a whole lot more. It also opens the door to a new way of cooking with many recipes from the Mediterranean, North Africa, Middle East and Asia reliant on wood fired ovens. Click below for more information!

The Hayter Harrier 48 pro review
When buying a new lawnmower there is always a long winded attempt to research every make on the market to make an informed decision and ensure the best solution for your lawn and your pocket. We have all made the mistake of purchasing the cheaper option only to pay much more in the long run. I can say with my hand on heart that nowhere else is this more relevant than with petrol lawn mowers. I remember the first £100 Hyundai lawn mower I ever bought to maintain an average suburban garden. It was fine to start with but the cheap attachments and accessories soon failed one at a time. The final blow came when the main engine shaft cracked in half when the blade hit a sizable stone. I remember being furious that the mower had cost me £100.00 and couldn’t believe it had died so soon.
If you go across the country to any professional garden maintenance or lawn care companies van and peak inside the sight will always be the same. Almost with 100% predictability there will be a Hayter mower sitting inside proudly. There is no accident that the Hayter mower is the number 1 choice of landscapers across the country. They are quite simply built to last. A powerful engine, robust body and fixtures and fittings make it a true outdoor pioneer. But why would a weekend gardener pay extra for such a mower? It is very simple even though you pay more for with Hayter you are pretty much ensured to have it for a lifetime. The problem with mowers is they are always kept in cold out buildings or damp leaky sheds. Unless you have a robust machine it will eventually die a premature death from damp and neglect. The truth is Hayter’s can live in the extremities of the outside shed and never suffer, they are true beasts of the outdoors. This means no matter what the difference in price to other makes they are always the best value for money in the long run.
This is no less the case with the Hayter Harrier 48 Pro. With its Briggs and Stratton 825 series engine and 8.50ft/lbs of torque this mower can take on the roughest of garden terrain including mulching leaves and twigs. Loved by gardeners and green keepers this mower has a variable speed control allowing you to cut at a speed which suits you and the lawns condition. This new updated specification has a redesigned discharge chute and angled collection box for improved collection in all weather conditions. The ready start engine has a cast iron cylinder sleeve providing added durability, fuel efficiency and overall cleaner for the environment. The full width rear roller means you get a beautifully stripped lawn even in damp conditions. The rear fabric collection box unlike plastic collection boxes allows spent air to travel through meaning less clogs and blockages. With a cutting width of 48cm, self drive, 70 litre collection bag and weighing only 45kg this mower will make cutting your lawn a walk in the park.
The Hayter Harrier 48 pro is an exceptional lawn mower with all the perks of Hayter and more. The adjustable speed control and redesigned grass collection methods means less clogging and spluttering. The collection box is huge allowing less emptying during cuttings saving you time. A make and model that make other mowers inferior and quality that will last you a lifetime.........You know it looks kind of good too!
