The D95 PreCut Wood Fired Oven kit is perfect if you want an authentic brick oven, but have limited space. With an internal diameter of 950mm it's quite large, with plenty of room to cook three family sized pizzas at a time. It’s the classic ‘igloo’ shape, which not only looks elegant in any setting, but works brilliantly for cooking pizzas, roasts, casseroles, bread… anything you like!
The PreCut Kit has been designed to make building your own authentic, Italian style brick oven as easy as possible. All of the bricks come cut and ground to size; we provide you with templates, CNC machined formwork, a Trammel, fibreglass dome form and much more. All you need to do is assemble the kit like a big jigsaw puzzle (see the Brick Oven Kits page for more details).
SIZE - 950MM INTERNAL DIAMETER
With an internal diameter of 95cm, this oven is certainly not small. The total available cooking surface area is 0.77m², giving you more than enough space to cook five 10" pizzas at once, or four large roasting trays.
COST - $2890
The D95 PreCut Brick Oven Kit is currently priced at $2890 inc GST. Pickup is available from our showroom in Hallam, or we can have the kit shipped to depot near you. Please see our Shipping page for more information.
HEAT-UP TIME - 2 HOURS
The D95 PreCut Brick Oven will take approximately 2 hours to heat up to 400°C. This is a fair length of time, but the payoff is in the heat retention. For a full firing you'll need about 30kg of dry hardwood.
COOL-DOWN TIME - 60 HOURS
From a full firing as described above, the D95 will take approximately 60 hours to cool from 350°C to 70°C, with the door firmly shut. In the first 12 hours it will drop to around 230°C (depending on ambient conditions).
SPACE REQUIRED -
1400mm x 1550mm
The minimum space required, assuming you're building a 'straight-on' rectangular oven stand, is 1400mm wide by 1550mm deep. We recommend increasing the depth to 1800mm to fit a landing in front of the oven mouth.
FINISHED OVEN WEIGHT -
Once the D95 PreCut Brick Oven Kit has been built it will weigh approximately 1100kg, not including the weight of the stand it is built on. The D95 should be built on a suspended slab of reinforced concrete.
BUILDING AN OVEN STAND FOR THE D95
To help you build a stand suitable to support our D95 PreCut Brick Oven Kit, we've put together a detailed guide to walk you through the process. Our suggestion is to build stand walls using bricks, Adbri Versaloc Interlocking concrete blocks, or Besser blocks, which are filled with concrete and reinforcing steel. A suspended slab of reinforced concrete is then formed up and poured to create the benchtop to support the oven. The stand must be built on reinforced concrete foundations - if you're building on soft ground you may need to consult a builder to ensure your foundations are adequate.
We recommend that you build your stand to a height in the range of 920mm to 1120mm height from ground level. The key is to build to a height that allows you to see the food that's cooking without bending down. You'll spend a lot longer looking into the oven than you will using your oven tools, so build your stand to a height that allows you to do that.
We have put together detailed instructions showing you our suggested process for building your Wood Fired Pizza Oven Stand, and determining the best height for the stand, please see the links below.
To help in the process of building a stand for your oven we have designed several layouts, to give you some ideas and inspiration. These layouts use the Adbri Versaloc 150mm series, and show the dimensions to build to, as well as the number and type of blocks required, as well as the volume of concrete needed to pour the foundations, cores and suspended slab.

GOOGLE SKETCHUP FILES
If you're into design and have used Google's Sketchup 3D drawing utility, then you'll love this. You can download the full CAD file for each of the D95 Brick Oven Layouts that we've put together, then use that file to create the perfect layout to fit your area.
D95 KIT INSTRUCTIONS
We've created a set of detailed instructions to guide you through the process of building your D95 PreCut Brick Oven Kit. We want you to have a great time building it, so we've put a lot of effort into them to make the project as enjoyable as possible.
There are two sets of instructions; a detailed written guide and a video series to accompany it. You will need both - the written instructions give you details that can't be covered in the videos, and the videos teach you things that can't be covered in writing.

PRECUT BRICK OVEN KIT VIDEOS
The first step is to cut and lay the Calcium Silicate insulation board, position it on your stand and pour the Refractory Castable Sub-Floor Heat Bank on top.
2. FLOOR TILES
The second step is to lay the firebrick tiles that make up the floor of your brick oven. These tiles are all cut to size and are ready to lay, you'll bed them down into a layer of refractory mortar.
3. BUILD THE DOME
With the floor tiles laid it's time to start building the brick dome. This might sound difficult, but we have made it simple with our steel Trammel Tool. The Trammel pivots from the centre of the floor; all you need to do is lock each dome brick into the trammel using the clamp attached, and it will help you position each brick perfectly.
4. THE ARCHES
Our CNC machined formwork will help you build the brick arches that make up the Entry and Vent area of your brick oven. To complete the dome, we show you how to use the fibreglass dome formwork which you'll use to lay the last few rows of bricks, and pour your refractory keystone.
5. FLUE GALLERY, INSULATE & RENDER
With the brick dome complete you're ready to fit the PreCast Flue Gallery. With the Flue Gallery in position you can attach the Ceramic Fibre Blanket Insulation. Following this you'll put on a layer of chicken wire and apply the Perlite Render in layers until you've built up a 50mm shell over the dome.
6. CURING THE OVEN
Before you start firing your finished oven up, you'll need to take it through the curing process. When you finish building the oven it will be full of moisture as a result of the building process, which needs to be driven out of the oven in a slow, controlled manner.
7. USING THE OVEN DOOR
Your D95 PreCut Oven Kit comes with a powdercoated stainless steel door, which you can use in two primary ways. The first use is as a draft door, to control airflow into the oven to feed the fire. The second use is to seal the oven chamber completely, to seal in steam and smoke for the perfect roasts, crusty loaves of bread and a whole lot more.
