Q: Are Wildcat ovens only for cooking Pizzas?

Q: My 5000 series oven trolley has a sheet/sheets of thin galvanised metal and a piece of blueboard with it. What are they for?
A: The galvanised sheet sits on the cross bars at the top of an assembled trolley, and the blueboard sheet sits on top of the galvanised sheet. This provides a solid base for the firebricks.

Q: What happens if I move house?
A: All Wildcat wood fired ovens are essentially portable, and whilst heavy, they can be taken with you when you move. You may need a few strong friends to help.
Q: Is the oven weatherproof?
A: Wildcat Ovens are made from quality steel, stainless steel and aluminised steel. Topped with 2 stage high temperature paint, they are as weatherproof as we can possibly make them. However, if you intend to leave the oven exposed to the elements, you may need to touch up or respray with “Stove Bright” metallic black or spray vegetable oil inside of oven and all the moving parts after use, if you intend to leave it for a period of time. Therefore, we recommend the optional cover is used when the oven is not in use.
Q: Where can I purchase a Wildcat Oven?
Q: How much are your ovens?
Q: What is the small spring knob under the oven door on a 6000 oven and on the door of a 5000 oven?
A: That is the primary combustion air intake control knob. Move it to the left and the fire gets less air therefore burns cooler and more slowly, move it to the right and the fire gets more air and burners faster and hotter.
Q: Where can I see them?
A: We do trade shows and inhouse cooking demonstrations. We have a full on display at our showroom and factory.
