The fireproof materials used to manufacture Zio Ciro ovens are selected and mainly originate from Italy. The mixtures have been tested over more than 30 years of activity and provide the oven with fire resistance and the long-term ability to maintain temperatures in order to guarantee unparalleled cooking results compared to other ovens made of non-fireproof material.
It’s very easy to use a Zio Ciro oven. Just follow the instructions provided inside the package, which are also available on the website Zio-Ciro.com. Maintenance requirements are minimal for both wood-fired and gas-powered models. Assistance is guaranteed through our technical support service, which is available by WhatsApp, e-mail, and telephone.
Following the right procedure for the first times that you light it up is crucial. If you speed up the process too much, you run the risk of creating small cracks or fissures in the fireproof elements. This happens because the fireproof material that is not “cooked” (sintered) yet would undergo a thermal shock that causes breakage. We recommend the “tempering” approach, using increasingly high temperatures uniformly (for example, by spreading hot coals over the entire surface, not with the flame concentrated at a single point).
You can clean a Zio Ciro oven by setting a fire and reaching high temperatures. Afterwards, using the metal mesh brush, brush the surface in order to remove any impurities. Never use water or wet or humid tools, especially when the oven is hot. This would put the fireproof elements of the oven itself at risk of breaking.

Subito Cotto ovens are pre-assembled at our factory and arrive ready for use. Besides, their weight is limited and they are equipped with handles to make it possible for several people to move it without needing any mechanical lifting equipment.
The number of pizzas that can be cooked at the same time is mentioned on the technical sheet for each model. We took into consideration pizzas with an approximate diameter of 33 cm. Note that the number of pizzas is different for a wood-fired model compared to a gas-powered model, since the gas burner takes up less space at the cooking level compared to the wood, and therefore it allows for greater capacity.
Subito Cotto ovens require no assembly, since they’ve been pre-assembled and tested at our factory. You just need to place it where it’s supposed to be used, such as on the metal base that can be purchased with the oven, or on a suitable supporting surface. Read the instructions provided carefully.
A Subito Cotto gas-powered oven needs a standard half-inch gas pipe and a pressure regulator to connect the burner’s main control unit to the cylinder or the network. The features of the gas pressure regulator depend on the oven model:
Certainly. All Subito Cotto oven models are built with the possibility of removing part of the oven surface, where you can insert the gas burner. We have created a photo tutorial in PDF formatthat we invite you to view in order to understand how to carry out the conversion.
It can be done, but has to be designed and prepared at the ordering stage. This has to be done to determine the thickness of the support service, the insulation under the cooking surface, and the cooking surface itself, in order to determine the length of the burner.
