Summertime is pretty much upon us which means long outdoor nights with friends, Pimm’s, fairy lights and pizza ovens. Nowadays, traditional BBQ’s are being replaced with compact garden pizza ovens for a taste of Italy.
If you are considering buying one of these pizza ovens, you need to make sure you have the right safety equipment close-by and knowledge, just in case things get out of hand.
Read the safety manual before using and install correctly
This is probably the most important part, make sure you read the instructions as this could be huge safety hazard if it has not been installed correctly. If it starts to fall apart, you may have ash going everywhere which can set things on fire really easily
Have a StaySafe 5-in-1 Fire Extinguisher close by
If it so happens that you do have a fire accident, you need to be able to put it out as soon as possible. They StaySafe is really easy to use and can put a fire out in seconds. It puts out five different types of fires and is ideal for keeping near your pizza oven.
Use heat resistant gloves
Use these even when you think your pizza oven has cooled down, you don’t want unexpected burns to go with your new Summer tan!
Clean between uses
Make sure to clean your Pizza oven thoroughly before each use. This is not only good for hygiene reasons, but also small parts of leftover dough can catch fire and be a hazard. If you’re emptying ashes, make sure they have completely cooled down beforehand.
Switch off the gas
Finally, if your pizza oven uses gas, make sure it’s turned off when you come to finish using it. Have a look at the gas hose too to make sure there is no damage, if there is, replace immediately.
We hope you have a safe and fun Summer!
