Clean the combustion chamber.
Pyrolysis 500°C (1 000°F). The Alfa ovens clean themselves thanks to a process called pyrolysis (pyro “fire” + lysis “separating”). It is a procedure that uses very high heat to decompose organic materials and to transform them into volatile compounds. To activate pyrolysis we suggest you keep the temperature at 500°C (1 000°F) for 2-3 minutes. Do not clean the Combustion Chamber with abrasive sponges and acidic or basic solvents which could compromise the integrity of the oven.
Clean the cooking floor.
Once the pyrolysis is finished, wait for the oven to cool down and remove any food residues with the help of a brush and a damp cloth. You should clean your oven floor after each use.
Clean the oven outside.
Like all stainless and powder- coat products, Alfa ovens are built to withstand adverse weather conditions including salt air corrosion as long as punctual and effective maintenance is ensured. To clean stainless steel, use a soft cloth soaked in a solution of water and soap or alternatively with baking soda and dish detergent. Rub gently when the oven is completely cold. Use neutral, neither acidic nor basic solutions and always do the operation with the oven cold
IMPORTANT: always check the certification of the product you use and that the components are those declared.
ATTENTION: Steels subjected to high temperatures and direct flames tend to change color on the surface. This is an inherent feature of the material.
Clean the stainless-steel parts.
ALFA ovens are made with stainless-steel outside and inside. To clean these parts, we recommend that you use a stainless-steel cleaner. Please carefully read the warnings and the instructions. Do not use detergents containing acids, white spirit or xylene. Rinse well after cleaning the oven.
Protect stainless steel.
To better protect the stainless steel parts, we suggest using vaseline oil or other neutral cleaning solutions (pH 7) that do not contain acids, white spirit or xylene. Use soft, non-abrasive cloth to apply.
In the case of beachfront installations to avoid salty air corrosion and white thin layers, clean the oven often with fresh water.
The gas burner must be cleaned from time to time by removing food residues with the help of a brush. When cleaning valves and burners, be careful not to damage the burner and not to enlarge the holes.
Clean the nozzles.
At least once a year to prevent them from clogging thus reducing the gas flow (contact qualified persons).
Remove rust spots.
Stainless steel is rust-proof but in some cases (humidity, salty air, sea spray…) some rust stains might appear. Use a rust remover to make your oven shiny and new once again.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How are Alfa ovens different to a regular oven?
The key to a perfect Italian-style pizza is to cook it quickly at a high temperature; regular ovens simply don’t get hot enough. Alfa ovens can reach temperatures of up to 500 Celsius, allowing you to cook pizzas in as little as 90 seconds. The Alfa oven Forninox technology allows the oven to heat up in around 40-60 minutes using small amounts of fuel.
Are Alfa ovens gas or wood fired?
The Alfa range is predominately wood fired but Alfa offer a range of gas fired ovens with some models giving you the option of both. There is a limited range of gas fired options approved for sale in Australia. Convenience or tradition? Both deliver great pizzas.
What is ‘Forninox’ technology?
Alfa patented Forninox technology ten years ago, and it has since enabled them to manufacture high-octane stainless steel and brick refractory wood-fired ovens. This technology allows for the combined use of materials (stainless steel inner structure with refractory bricks for the base) and means that these ovens reach the high temperatures required in less time – and maintain the heat for longer.
What sized ovens are available?
Alfa pizza ovens come in a number of sizes in our residential range, with capacity ranging from one to five pizzas. Our commercial ovens can cook up to eight pizzas at a time – and up to 110 in an hour. Whether you require a small oven for the backyard, or a larger oven that is suitable for commercial use, we have you covered
Where can the oven be installed and what do I need to know before using the oven?
Please ensure you read the online User Manual's thoroughly before purchasing, installing and/or using a wood or gas fired oven. You should also check with your local council to ensure there are no restrictions in your area. If you are considering a gas fired oven, please refer to the Australian Gas Oven User Manual.
