Polito Giotto Pizza Oven: Stand Options Explained

The Polito Pizza Oven is a standout. It's our top pick for ready-made refractory cement pizza ovens for the home. With its sleek design, as seen on Australia's prime time hit TV show 'The Block', and its ability to cook a fantastic pizza, it's a winner. Deciding on the right stand for your oven is simple, and we've outlined the options below to assist you.

Choosing Your Stand

Your choice of stand for the Polito Giotto Pizza Oven will be determined on your chosen location for a pizza oven or preference to wanting the oven to be with a built in look or mobile on wheel.s. The height of your oven can significantly impact your cooking experience too. From countertop placement to dedicated stands, each option offers unique benefits. Let's delve into the details to help you make the best choice for your home.

No Stand Option

The no stand option is ideal if you plan to place the oven on a non-combustible countertop. We recommend maintaining a 0.8-1.2 inch air gap using the supplied spacers that come with the pizza oven.

If your countertop is made of man-made quartz aggregate, the Polito Giotto with a bench stand is a great fit. The bench stand provides enough elevation to prevent damage to your countertop.

Most kitchen or outdoor kitchen countertops are typically around 35 inches high. Placing the pizza oven at this height might not be ideal as the cooking floor height is relatively low, requiring you to bend down more to look inside the oven.

A comfortable cooking floor height for a pizza oven that offers good ergonomics is between 41-43 inches. The Giotto has 3 inches beneath the oven cooking floor, so if you're building an outdoor kitchen, consider raising your countertop in the pizza oven area to 39-41.5 inches.

Bench Stand Option

The bench stand option for the Giotto addresses the cooking floor height and issues with countertops with quartz aggregate. It allows you to place your oven on a countertop and adds 5.9 inches height to the underside of the pizza oven.

For ultimate flexibility, the Hex Stand option is perfect. It's beautifully designed and made from high-quality powder-coated steel. There's plenty of shelving below for wood storage or general use.
