Spring is just around the corner, and we are already dreaming of evenings spent enjoying BBQs, picnics and maybe even pizzas al fresco.

If, like us, you've had a pizza oven high on your wish list since last summer, allow us to introduce you to one gadget that may just give you the final push you need to take the plunge: OONI's Karu wood and charcoal-fired portable pizza oven.

There is huge demand for OONI's pizza oven and they have already sold out across numerous retailers, including Lakeland, Amazon and John Lewis – but we've searched high and low and discovered it is still in stock on Selfridges, (although we don't think it will be for long).

Whether you are making pizzas, or even fancy cooking steaks, a pizza oven is a great option.

Why we rate it

OONI's sell-out pizza oven is not only practical, but also multi-functional, and a real showstopper when you next have guests over.

It can be fuelled by real wood, charcoal or gas, for a wood-fired or stone baked pizza, which cooks in minutes.

For those who choose to use gas to fuel the pizza oven, it is important to note a OONI gas burner is required.

This creation has a custom-designed fuel tray to maximise air flow, and ensure your oven heats up to the max.

The body is made from stainless steel and features ceramic-fibre insulation. Plus, it boasts an extra thick baking stone and a patented flame keeper to retain more heat, which can reach up to 500 degrees in 15 minutes.

The pizza oven is portable, weighing 12kg, so you can manoeuvre it around the garden, or even take with you if you venture out camping this summer when lockdown lifts.

The oven doesn't come cheap, retailing for £300, but it must be doing something right as it's selling out fast.

What the reviews say

The OONI Karu wood and charcoal-fired portable pizza oven has over 1,300 glowing reviews from shoppers on the OONI website.

Here's what the reviews say:

  • "Absolutely love our OONI pizza oven. Definitely a bit of a learning curve but well worth it."

  • "First of all, the build quality of this is amazing. I was so happy as I assembled it out of the box which was very easy."

  • "Easy to use and portable and light enough to [take] on picnics or camping trips and not only for making pizzas it's great for steaks."

  • "We all love our OONI, it's built well and creates perfect pizzas, along with the inferred temperature gun it's all very easy. Can't wait to have friends round when things open up from lockdown restrictions."

  • "This is fabulous. Have had many a family lockdown night, even in the snow. Brilliant piece of kit, easy to set up and use. Don’t think I will ever buy a pizza again. If you are on the fence about buying one. Do it."
