The details

We can almost bet that you've never seen a pizza oven like this before.

The unique kitchen gadget features separately-controlled top and bottom heating elements and a continuously turning rotating tray to ensure even baking.

When the unit's built-in timer signals, it automatically turns off the heating elements to prevent your food from overcooking. According to Presto, the Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven uses up to 60 per cent less energy than a conventional oven.

The pizza oven has a removable nonstick baking tray that's easy to clean and store, and while it's designed for pizza, it can just as efficiently heat up frozen foods like chicken nuggets, fish fillets, egg rolls, and more.

What people are saying

The "Amazon's Choice" rotating pizza oven has earned close to 14,000 reviews from shoppers and an average rating of 4.5 stars.

According to one reviewer, the Presto 03430 Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven is "one of the best kitchen appliances" they have ever bought.

From chicken fingers to French fries, it "cooks everything," they say. Adding that they use it "more than [their] oven," and the unit doesn't require any preheating, unlike a conventional one.

It's a "silly-looking machine" that "cooks great pizza," writes another reviewer.

The Presto Pizzazz turns cheap, frozen pizza into something "bubbly and so tasty," raves one shopper. Adding, it's a "great" device.

While the unit has earned top marks for value and being easy to clean and use, some shoppers caution it can heat your kitchen.

It "does heat up your kitchen," writes one shopper. "Not excessively," but since the element is "exposed," you can "expect some heat increase," they say.

The verdict

With more than 13,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating in its corner, it's safe to say that the Presto 03430 Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven has become a fan-favourite kitchen gadget for Amazon shoppers. Reviewers applaud the device as "one of the best kitchen appliances" around and say it does far more than cook pizza. However, some shoppers note the device can heat up its surrounding area — something to keep in mind when cooking in summer.
