When it comes to the ultimate summer dining experience, nothing beats cooking with an outdoor oven.
From Gordon Ramsey to Jamie Oliver, every great chef needs a great oven to bring their menus to life. The old saying ‘a good workman never blames his tools’ doesn’t apply here. If you’re serious about food, and want to create delicious memories with friends and family in the sunshine, then an outdoor oven is an absolute must-have.
We’ve picked out some of the best options available now to help you create your own al fresco wonderland. With options for a wide range of budgets, every retailer listed is partnered with us here at DivideBuy – meaning you can spread the cost over as many as 12 months.
1. Igneus Minimo wood fired pizza oven – mega bundle: £499 RRP* | From £55.44 per month with DivideBuy
The Igneus Minimo pizza oven is super stylish and one of the best portable BBQs, weighing just 15kg. As one of the smaller ovens available on the market, it’s perfect for tight spaces – or if you simply prefer lighter portions!
But don’t let its size fool you. This oven can comfortably cook a 12-inch pizza. It’s even big enough to hold a roasting tin – meaning you could cook breakfast, lunch and dinner with it.
The product also includes a removable chimney and cooking stone, pizza peel and embers rake, cover, gloves and two cast iron pans.
The Colorado is an absolute showstopper in barbecue terms. It’s the most expensive of the outdoor ovens to feature in our guide – but its amazing features more than justify the price tag.
If you’re torn between finding the best charcoal BBQ or the best wood BBQ, the Colorado offers both. Coming in at a sturdy yet portable 80x80cm, it’s made from corten steel and comes steel cooking plates (7mm thickness) and a BBQ grill.
You can choose from four differnet options, allowing you to customise and pick the very best outdoor oven for your needs:
- Colorado – Place directly onto the floor and enjoy 360º heat and cooking
- Colorado Base – Elevates the Colorado firepit off the floor to waist height for cooking
- Colorado Log Base – The base has log storage built in and set to the ideal cooking height
- Colorado Prep Stand – Raised off the ground on a large stand with an area to prepare your food

Weighing 45kg (only 20kg with the bricks removed) it’s still very portable and can also be bought with a stainless steel trolley stand.
The oven is made from corten steel, so it constantly evolves with the elements. An anthracite finish is also available if that better suits your garden’s colour palette.
