It needs no chimney, unless expressly required by local laws, and it can neutralise bad smells with a simple odour eliminator.
It attains temperatures as high as a real wood-fired oven, which makes it perfect for countries where it is very complicated to get authorised to burn firewood. The exposed heating elements of the dome allow a rapid heating of the oven floor as well. By virtue of Alfa Forni’s high-density refractory bricks, the heat is retained much longer than in competing products, resulting in a drastic reduction in power consumption.
Thanks to the continuous research during the development stage of the Zeno oven, Alfa Forni has come up with the idea of keeping the control panel in the upper part to get the oven separate from the base. This feature allows you to choose whether to use the appliance without its base for greater ease of installation or to use it in all its glory as a compact and complete oven.>
Balance: The power ratio between the dome and the floor makes for a balanced cooking (9 heating elements in the dome and 6 in the floor).
The dome: Thanks to the visible infrared heating elements, heat transfer occurs by direct radiation and the refractory bricks act as a shield keeping the heat in the cooking chamber and gradually releasing it.
The floor: Due to the radiation from the dome and the high-density Alfa Forni bricks, it can be operated at 5/10% of the power cutting down energy consumption.

The electric wires are divided by type, colour-coded and bundled into a cable up to the control unit placed inside the oven landing to allow maintenance operations to be carried out easily and rapidly by any electrician.
Heating elements: to gain access to the elements, unscrew the right-hand side panel and remove it.
Control unit: the bundle of cables is inside the oven landing; just lift the lava stone top to reach it.
