What the Protect & Service Bundle Includes

Ooni's Karu 12 pizza oven is a real wood or charcoal beast of a pizza oven.  You can even use the oven with wood and charcoal mix.  As with all Ooni ovens, they are designed for ease of use. Fast heat-up times are a given with the Ooni Karu 12 with it reaching 500 degrees Celcius in less than 20 minutes.

The Ooni Karu 12 is gas compatible with the addition of the Ooni Gas Burner.   The gas burner simply attaches to the back of the Ooni Karu 12 with a couple of Allen key bolts, very easy process and no more than a 1-2 minute job.

Like the Ooni Pro pizza oven, the Ooni Karu 12 uses a custom-designed fuel tray which maximises airflow and delivers a powerful blast of searing flame.  It's so efficient that when using real wood or charcoal there's no excess ash to clean.

Being a true portable pizza oven, the Ooni Karu 12 weighs just 12kg which makes it as perfect for camping as it were for at home.  The Ooni Karu cover and carry case protects the oven at home and makes transporting and packing into the car a delight. 

The Ooni Karu 12 is made with a stainless steel body which is ceramic fibre-insulated.  Ooni has included an extra-thick Ooni Baking Stone and a patented flame keeper for maximum heat retention.


Not Sure About Wood, Charcoal Or Gas?

We get asked all the time at The Pizza Oven Store which fuel is recommended.  So here's our information to help you with your decision to buy your oven.

  • Choose Wood & Charcoal option if you want to experience the true taste of wood-fired pizza.¬† You can, of course, add the Ooni Gas Burner* to get the best of both worlds.
  • Building a fire from real wood and charcoal is an enjoyable experience.¬† There is a craft in keeping a fire going and it's as much fun learning the craft as it is cooking delicious wood-fired pizzas.
  • We're not going to lie to you about the ease of gas over wood and charcoal.¬† Gas pizza ovens are far easier to operate.¬† Twist and click the dial to ignite the piezo starter, wait 20 minutes and the Ooni Karu 12 is ready to cook pizzas at 500 degrees Celcius.
  • So how hard is it with a wood-fired pizza oven such as the Ooni Karu 12 or Ooni Pro?¬† Easy.¬† The first time you will learn rapidly and from then onwards you'll be a pro.
  • Having¬†a dry wood that's 15cm long and less than 5cm dia. and placing 6 pieces in the Ooni Karu and lighting is as simple as it is.¬† Adding a small number of pieces (2-3 at a time) regularly is key to an awesome fire.
  • Just thinking gas is all you want?¬† Choose the Ooni Koda 12 pizza oven which is LPG gas-only and one of our most popular gas pizza ovens.

*The Ooni Karu 12 gas regulator now comes with an LCC27 fitting in accordance to the new AU standard regulator for stocks manufactured after 1st April 2022. This won't work with the old gas bottle (POL appliance).

"After considerable consultation, Standards Australia have published AS/NSZ 5601.1:2013 Amendment 4 and AS/NSZ 5601.2:2020 which include a change from the current Type 21 ‚ÄėPOL‚Äô connection on a LPG cylinder to a new safer leisure cylinder connection (LCC27)." (

What this means is the new fitting (LCC27 fitting) will only work with the new bottle (LCC27 appliance), but the old fitting (Type 21/ POL) will work for both old and new appliances. But the old fitting will already be phased out, and the new fitting is needed for potential replacements.
