EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for 2024. 

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:

Range Master Grill Top Pizza OvenThe 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 $29.99 in April of 2024, which is $10 less than the $39.99 it went for in April of 2023. Aldi sold it for $49.99 in June of 2022, so the price on this has steadily gone down over the years. 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.

  1. Hi. I bought and used the pizza oven. It’s great! I used it on a 4 burner gas grill with the grill lid closed. Since I don’t have a peel I prepped my pizza on parchment and put that on the grill. The parchment will burn a bit but I only used it for a minute or 2 until I could slide it off the paper and onto the stone proper (this I achieved with a pizza screen). I baked the pizzas for about 4 mins total (2mins then rotate 180 degrees then final 2mins) and removed it with my pizza screen. (You could prob use a couple big spatulas too.) My homemade dough was thin and crispy! Definitely a great buy! I was going to buy an Ooni but not anymore! I’m not sure how to post pix here.

    I saw it at my local Aldi’s for $39.99. I did not purchase it, but frankly I was not impressed. It is a metal box with a pizza stone in it. I own a pizza stone and I own a grill. Put pizza stone on grill, add pizza, close lid. Done and I save $40…

    • Exactly. Couldn’t have said it better myself

    • Bought one and just tried it out. It worked well with a webber charcoal grill. The thing that makes it different from just putting the normal grill lid, is the hot air space that surrounds the oven bit; so heat is evenly around the pizza. If you’re just doing on the grill without this oven, you kinda have to do indirect method and it’s a bit of a pain.

  3. I bought one just today. Haven’t tried yet.

  4. What temperature are you using it at on-a gas grill?

  5. Bought one for $49. Pizza Stone broken in box. Customer service ( in Illinois) sez they’ve got no replacement stones. Have to return. Shame. Seems solid for the price.

  6. I just tried it out tonight. We had the gas grill on high but I forgot to look at the temp. I left it on for 5 minutes and it was almost entirely burnt black. The crust even stuck to the stone. Any help on temp and time would be greatly appreciated!

  7. Do you know if it works on a blackstone griddle ?

    • Did you find out if works on blackstone?
      I bought one, but if not work on blackstone, then I’ll return

      • was told it works on grilsl. I still think it looks just like the one blackstone had been selling. I’m gonna still give it a try

    • just got today and tried on my 22″ backstroke. just set it on top. took about 20 minutes to heat up enough for me to cook the flatbread pizza on. the temp guard didn’t work so u used my infrared thermometer to check the temp inside. my grill only heats up to about 560 the internal temp got up to 425degrees. pizza turned out good. too was bubbling but didn’t get dark.

    • Yes! We use ours on our small blackstone and it works great!

  8. Is it made in the USA?

    If not, then where?

  9. Any suggestions on how to clean the stone?

  10. I purchased this when it was available. The price was good, and it honestly makes a great pizza using the grill.
    A little skeptical at first, but it cooked the pizza fast and evenly. First, we made a homemade pizza which came out great. Next, we tried a frozen one (btw Mama Cozzis’s rising crust is delish) and again; fast & even cooking. Love this item!

  11. Have it, like it a lot.

    I use it on my propane 3 burner Weber; using all three will send the Oven’s temperature past its 700 degree gauge limit which seems imprudent. So, after preheat, I keep the grill at 425 or so using the the 2 burners under the oven— this keeps the oven in the mid to high 600s. I close the grill lid when I can, of course.

    I did get a wooden peel for putting the pies in and an aluminum one for removal. Together they cost more than the oven.

  12. Can u use on a pellet grill?

  13. Love this pizza oven!!

  14. I absolutely love this pizza oven. I use it in my Weber gas grill. The pizza oven heats up to a temperature of about 625 degrees. I then put my homemade pizza in the oven for 7-8 minute and it comes out perfect. Hardest part is sliding it into the oven. I read a few reviews of how to do it and found it is best to coat your pizza wheel with flour and cornmeal mix. Have all your pizza ingredients ready to go because you can’t let your dough set in the wheel too long or it will stick and thus make it hard to slide off. I have used this oven about 5 times since I purchased it and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

  15. How big of a pizza can you cook?

  16. Just bought it for $29.99. Expect to use it in the summer on my 3 burner Weber gas grill to cook frozen pizza so I don’t have to turn on the oven in the house. I expect that I’ll have to experiment some to see how to cook frozen pizza without burning them.

  17. Just picked up one yesterday (the last one on the shelf) for $29.99, & can’t wait to try it. Just to be on the safe side, we did open the box in the parking lot before leaving, just to make sure that the stone was in one piece. It was very well packaged & everything looks a-okay.
