The Mezzo 76

The Mezzo 76 is our popular, medium sized wood fired oven exclusively designed and hand cast by The Stone Bake Oven Company in the UK. A perfect centrepiece for any garden, the Mezzo 76 is ideal for those who want to balance a sizeable oven that can cook a number of dishes at the same time, with affordability. If you do not wish to undertake any building work, The Mezzo can be assembled and ready to use within 20 minutes with the incorporation of the Mezzo Stand. As standard, the Mezzo 76 includes 2x cooking floor bases, an oven dome, a stainless steel door and a flue and cap (available in black or stainless steel).

The Mezzo 76: Internal Cooking Floor Size

The Mezzo 76 has a 760mm diameter internal cooking floor. Unlike other wood fired ovens that use designated cooking tiles inside the oven, the entire floor inside the Mezzo 76 oven can be utilised as a cooking floor.

The Mezzo 76: Cooking Capacity

The Mezzo 76 oven can fit two large or three small pizzas in at one time. Alternatively, the oven can hold one large roasting tray and a side tray, or three smaller roasting dishes at one time. Please see the capacity diagrams opposite.

The Mezzo 76: Cooking Capabilities

Like all our Stone Bake ovens, the Mezzo 76 is capable of a range of cooking methodsAs well as cooking pizza, you’ll be able to grill, bake and roast. The Mezzo 76 is even capable of hot and cold smoking. For overnight slow cooking, please see the Mezzo 76 Insulation Kit (requires building work). This oven retains its heat for over 24 hours which is perfect for long, slow cooking. Find all you need in The Stone Bake Oven Company’s Cooking Techniques Guide and our tried and tested Recipes section.

The Mezzo 76: Heat Up Times & Heat Retention

The Mezzo 76 oven heats up quickly, reaching maximum cooking temperatures within 30 minutes. However, it is normal for your very first firing to take slightly longer. Due to its insulating nature, the Mezzo 76 oven can retain heat in its core form for over 4 hours, without the need to add additional wood. Please see the Mezzo 76 statistics chart above for oven properties.

The Mezzo 76: Indoor and Outdoor Installation

The Mezzo 76 in its core form is designed for outdoor use only. If you are looking to install your oven inside, you will need an insulation kit. The installation requirements for the Mezzo 76 Insulation Kit adhere to regulations for internal installation.

The Mezzo 76: Flue Placement

The Mezzo 76’s oven flue is placed outside the oven cooking chamber. This smart design means that, when the door is closed, the flue vent is shut off. This flue feature is crucial for maximum heat retention, low wood consumption and especially useful for baking and other cooking techniques in a wood fired oven. Ovens with centralised flue vents in the oven dome result in sub-standard heat retention and higher fuel consumptions.

The Mezzo 76: Material Composition

The Mezzo 76’s oven dome is made from an insulating aggregate, meaning excellent heat retention. The Mezzo 76 oven base is made from a dense, commercial grade material. This material stores heat for longer, ensuring crispy pizza bases and excellent cooking ability for hours on end. Due to the dense and insulating factors of the Mezzo 76, the oven can be used in its core form, without the need for extra insulation and building works.

The Mezzo 76: Reinforcement

The Mezzo 76 oven is reinforced with Micro Mesh Technology, exclusive to The Stone Bake Oven Company. Micro Mesh Technology involves embedding stainless steel fibres in the oven material, which then form a complex mesh within the oven. These fibres allow the oven to expand and contract whilst heating and cooling, ensuring the structural integrity of your oven. Micro-Mesh Technology results in an oven that is designed to last.

The Mezzo 76: Weather and Frost Proof

The Mezzo 76 oven is already treated for protection from the elements, including frost. The Stone Bake Oven Company strongly recommends applying the Stone Bake Sealant when using The Mezzo 76. Applying the sealant just twice per year ensures your oven is protected from weathering in the long term.

The Mezzo 76: Assembly

The Mezzo 76 Oven is designed for easy installation. The oven dome is in one piece (150kg) and the two-part oven base (2x 75kg) makes for easy manoeuvring. The base fits together with a tongue and groove joint and the dome sits in a recess in the base. For a hands free approach, simply purchase the Mezzo Stand for an oven that is ready to use right away. Ask The Stone Bake Oven Company for guidance on building a wooden stand. Please note: if you build your own oven stand, you do so at your own risk.

The Mezzo 76: Oven Stand Information

You can purchase a metal, weatherproof stand from The Stone Bake Oven Company online shop as a ‘ready to go option’. Alternatively, you can build a brick or block work stand to place the oven on. For additional guidance on building your own stand please see the Manuals and Videos section of the website.

The Mezzo 76: Insulation Overview

The Kit is an extension that is recommended if you wish to insulate your oven. This allows for greatly improved heat retention, taking a standard 4 hours heat retention to 24+ hours. Insulating also means that you can encase the oven in standard brickwork or render without it being affected by the heat. The kit includes a decorative archway for the entrance of your oven, insulation wool to insulate your dome and calcium silicate board to insulate the floor.  Some building work is therefore required to complete the installation. The oven can be purchased, used and later built in using our insulation kit. This gives you flexibility if you are considering undertaking building work at a later date in order to customise and additionally insulate your oven.

The Mezzo 76: Render Overview

If you wish to render your oven you must first insulate it. Rendering it means you can shape the exterior of your oven to a mould of your choosing. First encase your wool in chicken wire and tighten with pliers. Then add water to the pre mix render as instructed on the bags. Next apply the glass fibre mesh to create a skeleton for your render structure. Add your second layer of render and then you are able to stylise the finish as you wish. The render and insulation kit can be picked up together. More information can be found here

The Mezzo 76: Flue Overview

We offer Single and Twin Walled Flues in both stainless steel and black. As a standard you will need a single wall flue, but if you wish for you oven to be indoors or under a roof you need a twin wall flue. A Twin Wall Flue prevents the flues heat from escaping and transferring to the wall/roof the flue is exiting, as well as stopping the rain getting through the roof it is passing out of. This is also available In black.
