Ooni Unveils Larger Gas-Powered Pizza Oven with Dual-Zone Cooking

Ooni Pizza Ovens has launched a 24-inch pizza oven with what the company describes as a next-generation gas system allowing consumers to cook multiple pizzas, larger single pizzas and dual dishes or pizza styles at once.

The new Ooni Koda 2 Max features zonal cooking to enable non-stop side-by-side bakes. The unit comes with a digital thermometer hub with smartphone connectivity.

“We’re thrilled to unveil the Koda 2 Max, our biggest and most versatile oven yet, designed to accommodate every taste, all at once,” said Kristian Tapaninaho, founder and co-CEO of Ooni. “With its seamless gas-only plug-and-play operation, this oven builds upon the success of one of our best-sellers, the Koda 16. It’s a testament to our unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of pizza perfection, backed by thousands of hours of rigorous testing and understanding.”

The Koda 2 Max has a 24-inch cordierite cooking surface that is capable of reaching 950 °F (500 °C). The oven can bake one 20-inch New York-style pizza, two 12-inch pizzas or three 10-inch pizzas at the same time. Ooni’s thickest 20-millimeter cordierite cooking surface is designed to stay hotter longer while maximizing fuel efficiency, according to the company. The Koda 2 Max can be purchased to run on either propane (MSRP $999) or natural gas (MSRP $1049).

Ooni’s team of designers and engineers spent more than 8,000 hours developing the Koda 2 Max’s G2 Gas Technology, which delivers incredibly even heat across the oven for one-turn pizza cooking, reduced heating time between cooks, and ultimate ease of use, said the company. Two independently controlled gas burners allow for side-by-side, dual-zone cooking at a range of temperatures. This makes it possible to cook different styles of pizza simultaneously or to cook pizza and other foods simultaneously.

A front-mounted digital temperature hub gives air temperature readings from either side of the oven. A pair of digital food probes can take internal temperature readings of meats as they roast.

Users can now remotely monitor the oven temperature using the new Ooni Connect functionality in the Ooni app. Syncing the Ooni oven to the app allows access to real-time cooking notifications, temperature tracking, product updates, tips and more.

Darina Garland, co-founder and co-CEO of Ooni, said, “Between the large cooking space and the versatile dual burners, pizza is only the beginning. The Koda 2 Max can precisely cook an entire meal of main and side dishes to absolute perfection.”

Ooni’s Koda 2 Max will be available for pre-order on its website beginning May 28.
