The Witt Etna Fermo turns up the heat on the UK pizza oven market

Reaching 500 degrees in under 18 minutes, and cooking stone-baked pizzas in just 60-seconds, the award-winning Witt Etna Fermo gas-powered outdoor pizza oven has arrived in the UK.

Combining sleek Scandinavian design with authentic Italian cooking, this premium pizza oven offers exceptional build quality and features throughout. Boasting the market’s fastest heat-up (15-18mins), true 500 degree cooking, and robust, weatherproof design, the Etna Fermo is built to deliver exceptional outdoor cooking whatever the weather.

Key to the Etna Fermo’s culinary strengths is its full-width custom designed pizza stone and unique U-shaped burner. While many pizza-ovens use straight or L-shaped burners, Witt’s U-shaped burner surrounds the pizza, ensuring the most even, all-round cooking without having to turn the pizza halfway through. The result is perfectly cooked pizza without the fuss, every time

Capable of accommodating pizzas up to a family feast friendly 16inches (40.5cm), the Witt Etna Fermo is the pizza oven of choice for chefs and pizza-aficionados and has already taken Europe by storm. Now available in the UK in a choice of four easy-to-clean matt texture colours (black, stone, graphite and orange) and complete with a UK-specific patio gas regulator and hose, the Etna Fermo is the first product in a line-up of pizza ovens and pizza accessories from the Danish brand.

Witt has also made the Witt Pizza app available in the UK. Exclusive to owners of the Witt Etna line of ovens, this dynamic and engaging app adds a wealth of recipes, tips and tricks, and a community forum for owners to share their best pizzas – perfect inspiration for your next pizza adventure. 

Weighing in at a sturdy 33.5kg, the Scandinavian-designed Witt Etna Fermo is almost twice the weight of its nearest competitor’s 16inch gas oven and is built to withstand the most extreme weather conditions. Its four foldable aluminium with rubber feet offer unrivalled stability and safety compared to models using only three legs, and the premium battery-powered burner ignition system has been designed to stand the test of time and extensive use. 

Geoff Johnson, Sales Director at Witt UK & Ireland, said: “There’s nothing better than a freshly cooked homemade pizza with a crispy base, dripping with cheese, and piping hot straight from the oven. The Fermo is perfect for recreating authentic Italian pizza at home. It’s quick, hassle-free, and designed to stand up to the worst of Scandinavian weather – making it ideal for the UK. Always ready to use, it’s perfect for spontaneous pizza nights with friends and family.
