LOUISVILLE, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Restaurant-style pizza has long been an aspiration for home chefs

and complicated to convenient yet disappointing, spurring the
development of the new Monogram® Pizza Oven.

Oven brings restaurant-quality cooking capabilities to the home kitchen,
enabling home chefs, entertainers, families and pizza enthusiasts to

Monogram styling and the sophisticated technology of FirstBuild, the
Monogram Pizza Oven brings authentic old world taste to today’s high-end
kitchens.

space of a standard wall oven cavity, yet is spacious enough to fit a
pizza peel and large pies for the whole family. Best of all, the
Monogram Pizza Oven incorporates a compact interior ventilation system,
requiring no special installation or construction—a one-of-a-kind
feature.

local restaurant; the Monogram Pizza Oven can cook pizzas in just two

The Monogram Pizza Oven was developed through FirstBuild™, a new model
of manufacturing that challenges makers around the world to ideate and
help design innovations in home appliances. As the high-end consumer
appliance market continues its upward trajectory, the Monogram Pizza
oven marks a significant early innovation and a sign of cutting edge
products yet to come.

“We saw a considerable market gap when it came to the available at-home
options for pizza enthusiasts and home chefs,” said Wayne Davis,
commercial leader at FirstBuild. “Outdoor pizza ovens lacked
convenience, and indoor options often require substantial ventilation.
The Monogram Pizza Oven easily integrates into the luxury kitchen,
offering professional-style pizzas any time.”

The Monogram Pizza Oven is available May 2016, with an MSRP of $9,900.
