When it comes to choosing the best wood fired pizza oven kit for your home or business, you’ve probably already realized there are A LOT of options! So, how do you decide which is the best pizza oven for your needs? This Chicago Brick Oven CBO 500 Wood Fired Pizza Oven Kit CBO-O-KIT-500 review will dive deep into this oven’s top features to help you decide if it’s the perfect oven for your home or business. This commercial wood fired diy pizza oven kit offers numerous benefits, including:
When you set out to buy a wood fired pizza oven, you probably didn’t put too much thought into where the heat and the smoke go, right? I mean, all pizza ovens should heat up the inside (in some way or another) and send the smoke out the chimney.
BUT that’s not always the case. Get a poorly designed pizza oven and you’ll quickly look like a cartoon character with a face covered in ash!
Lucky for us all, the Chicago Brick Oven CBO 500 Wood Fired Pizza Oven is made in a unique way to promote high performance heat and smoke drafting.
Unlike other ovens that trap heat and smoke at the dome ceiling, Chicago Brick Oven’s pizza oven vent pulls the flame horizontally across the top of the dome and then vertically down the sides.
Combine this unique flame pull with a modern and efficient flue system, and you have yourself a high performing oven that cooks food through, while preventing smoke from coming out the front door.
Do you want an indoor option? Are you looking for an outdoor one? How about both? As long as you have enough ventilation, you can put this oven wherever you want it. You can either build it into a grand, outdoor kitchen or you can just set it on top of your countertop.
The outside of the oven is also a blank slate that you can decorate as you want so that it really fits into the space. You do have to use the proper materials to decorate it, so look for high heat paint or adhesive for tiling, adding stone and stuccoing.
What’s the first thing you notice when you look at this diy kit? It’s shape, right?
While most of the industry is trying to reinvent the wheel, i.e. barrel shaped ovens. Chicago Brick Oven has stuck to what’s tried and true. A low, igloo shaped dome. The exact style traditional Italian wood-fired pizza ovens have been made for centuries.
The only difference? Chicago Brick Oven uses a proprietary refractory cement formula and stainless steel fiber reinforcement, so their ovens are built to last, even in the harshest of climates. Talk about durability!
Owning a pizza oven is a luxury. It’s a great way to start a business or stoke up some family fun at home on the weekends.
But safety is a top concern when you’re dealing with an open flame. And Chicago Brick Oven has you covered.
All of Chicago Brick Oven’s pizza ovens, including the CBO-500 DIY Kit, are UL and NSF Certified.
What does that mean, exactly?
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent organization that’s been around for over 100 years. Their main job is to evaluate and test manufactured products to ensure they meet strict safety requirements prior to giving their third-party certification to any product.
National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) is a non-profit organization that created strict food safety and sanitation standards to promote public health. An NSF Certified food service product means the manufacturer of that product (in this case Chicago Brick Oven) uses only FDA approved raw materials in the manufacturing of their products.
Bottom line: you can feel confident knowing that you have a very safe and responsibly sourced pizza oven for your closest family and friends to enjoy.
Decades ago, you’d never hear the phrases “wood-fired pizza oven” and “made in America” in the same sentence. It just didn’t make sense; the worlds were too far apart.

So they set out to do just that. And Chicago Brick Oven was born!
All of Chicago Brick Oven’s pizza ovens are built here in America using USA-sourced materials to ensure safe and reliable year-around cooking. Every oven is engineered to withstand the extreme temperatures of the United States vast climates, so you can feel confident knowing your oven will last in any season.

I first discovered wood-fired brick ovens on a cooking show a few years ago. I have always wanted one since then. I did some research looking for the best one and the same company kept coming up, Chicago Brick Oven. I got my oven in April 2015 and started cooking right away, after I Installed, making sure to follow the instructions that were included. The oven and the pizzas I cooked became the sensation of my small town! We had pizza parties every weekend and then…I started experimenting! We have made pizza, steaks, fish, baked potatoes, cookies, pumpkin seeds, Mac n’ Cheese, calzones, stuffed peppers, and my favorite, fresh pita bread. I have had no complaints about my oven and can’t wait to cook something new with it every weekend. I highly recommend Chicago Brick Oven to everyone that has a passion for cooking great food.
Just finished my CBO 500 project a few weeks ago and I’m absolutely loving your product.I have had no issues with any smoke drafting out, which has made my outdoor entertainment safe and an even bigger hit!
I absolutely love my CBO! It has become the centerpiece to my Backyard Kitchen. The best part…I can now cook my Famous Neapolitan Tomato and Sausage Pie in my CBO instead of a conventional oven. And, the CBO team was with me throughout the entire installation process! Great customer service guys.
