Test Kitchen

Welcome to the Wood Fired Oven Baker test kitchen!

Here you will find all you need for your successful pizzeria or artisan kitchen. With the wood-fired chef in mind, we offer everything from ovens, dough mixers, various antique and modern flywheel slicers and scales, refrigeration solutions, to small wares all at competitive prices.

Because we carry Italian imports of various brands and models, you won’t be given a sales pitch, but will get to experience the equipment first-hand. Most products are on-site and on display in our show room, warehouse, and our test kitchen, so you can personally inspect and use any product before you buy as well as ask any questions you may have.

Spending a few days in our pizzaiolo test kitchen can help you make a confident, informed decision about our products. Pre-ordered ingredients will await you here, and our friendly staff are happy to guide you as you learn pizza dough recipes implementing techniques about hydration, fermentation, and how climate variances affects the dough.  Artisan bread recipes can be shared, as well as how to pull fresh mozzarella , ricotta, and burrata cheese. You will also learn multiple sauces recipes (red, white, and pesto), and how to operate all of the equipment safely and with confidence.
