EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for 2023.
A few years ago, something caught my eye in the packaging for some Jack’s Pizza I’d picked up from the grocery store. The pizza label boasted that it was great for grilling, something I’d never associated with a pizza before. I ended up grilling the pizza, with modest success, which also got me to experiment with doing the same with a Mama Cozzi’s pizza from Aldi. After some initial problems, a friend of mine managed to hack a solution.
My takeaway from the experience was that it’s not necessarily easy grilling a pizza. It was cool, then, to recently see Aldi selling a more dedicated solution to this way of cooking.
What We Know:
The Range Master Grill Top Pizza Oven (Product Code: 813842) is an Aldi Find, which means stores only get one shipment of the item. Once it’s sold out, you won’t be able to get it until it comes back around to stores, if or when that might be. Aldi doesn’t ship products online, so if you can’t find it in your local store, you’re out of luck.
This sold for $39.99 in April of 2023, which is $10 less than what Aldi sold it for in June of 2022, when it cost $49.99. I wasn’t able to find any other products like this for less than $75, and the bulk of them were over $100. This looks to be pretty cheap as far as this accessory goes.
The oven also comes with a ceramic pizza stone.
Here’s more information about the oven, according to Aldi:
- Measures approximately 15.75″ x 13.78″ x 5.91″
- Suitable for gas or charcoal grill
- Simply place the firebox on the grill and the heat does the rest
- Features powder-coated outer housing and a stainless steel inner housing
- Includes an integrated thermometer for easy temperature control
- Includes a high-quality ceramic pizza stone (removable)
- No assembly required; simply unpack and it’s ready
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t tried out this pizza oven, so we don’t know how well it works or how durable it is. Also, at the time of publication, Aldi had not yet published any information about whether this comes with a warranty. That’s why we’ve created this open thread for users to share their experiences.
