Sports teams and restaurants close to sports grounds are being offered the chance to take their fandom to a whole new level with a pizza oven that can be customised to club colours.
The Italforni Bull oven currently comes as standard in red or black, but UK importer Euro Catering this morning confirmed that it can now be ordered in any RAL colour, or combination of colours.
Sales director Justin Towns said the oven could even be wrapped in “psychedelic flower power colours” if an operator really wished.
“If its tempered stained glass were coloured to suit the colours of a particular team, and it could be situated in a highly visible location, it would be a massive draw for the venue operating it, whether that is a sports club itself, or a restaurant close by, or affiliated to a club in some way.
“Our mission at Euro Catering is to work with what would be not just the UK’s first sports club or venue to configure a ‘Bull’ in team colours, but the world’s first,” he said. “I suppose the ultimate would be the Bradford Bulls, but any club that becomes the first will benefit hugely from the worldwide publicity surrounding the visual impact of their customised ‘Bull’.”
Heat-resistant coloured glass panels are used in the creation of the Bull, which is the first in the world to be made of tempered stained glass.
The oven has a high quality refractory brick base, sides and top, retaining heat to ensure consistent pizza cooking and lower energy bills. It also features touchscreen controls, digital thermometer read-outs, individually-controlled top and bottom oven zones and nine pre-programmable menu settings.
“Depending on the size of ‘Bull’ chosen, up to twelve 30cm pizzas can be cooked simultaneously, or up to five 60x40cm trays loaded,” said Towns. “The oven also comes with a two-year parts and one-year labour warranty and has genuine touchscreen controls that make operation child’s play.”
A ‘Bull’ was recently supplied to ‘The Pregnant Man’ pub in Chancery Lane and at the new London headquarters of Saatchi & Saatchi.
