What is HearthKit?

HearthKit lets you bake bread at home, create home-made pizzas and cook roasts to rival the finest old world bakeries and bistros. Only the HearthKit can cook like a traditional brick oven by surrounding foods with the three kinds of heat necessary for perfect preparation. Its all-natural ceramics absorb, concentrate, and release heat the same way a brick oven does, allowing you to bake bread, roast chicken, and brew stews from the inside out, not just the outside in. Plus, you store the HearthKit where you use it: in your oven!

How does HearthKit work?

The key to a hearth oven’s great cooking technique is its unique ability to absorb heat and redistribute it evenly. Pressed at over 175 tons from cordierite (a sturdy, specialized blend of earthen materials), HearthKit is fired at over 2,300°F and has excellent conductive properties. HearthKit features two slightly curved sidepieces and a thick, tapered base designed to form a chamber much like that of a wood burning beehive or brick pizza oven. This balances the heat in the oven and releases it relentlessly back into the food, making it possible to safely bake or roast at higher temperatures without burning, or to slow cook more gently and evenly at lower temperatures.

Once HearthKit is heated to the desired temperature, it remains at that level creating a highly stable heat platform. Thus, three types of heat — conductive, radiant and ambient — work together allowing you to cook your usual dishes with superior results: meats and poultry cook evenly and quickly, retaining their juiciness while breads with fabulous crusts rise to their fullest volume.

How is hearth-oven baking or cooking different from using a regular modern electric or gas oven?

A modern oven utilizes only ambient and minimal radiant heat. When baking in a hearth oven like the HearthKit, three principles are at work: conductive, radiant, and ambient. When designed properly, these three heat types work together to form a hearth environment. This creates a highly stable environment allowing for greater control and a more evenly cooked product.

Why is hearth-oven cooking better?

The key to a hearth oven is its unique ability to cook foods from the inside out, not just the outside in! Typically, roasted products may be baked at higher temperatures, allowing the food to sear on the outside and maintain juiciness inside. The incredible benefits to hearth-baked products are well documented and unchallenged.  Learn more about hearth cooking.

How easy is it to assemble?

Very easy! The HearthKit typically takes less than 60 seconds to install.
