Ooni Karu has three legs that keep it sturdy and safe and non-slip feet to protect your table-top surface. 2. Chimney Draws heat through Ooni Karu when cooking with wood and charcoal. The chimney™s quick release feature allows you to set up and pack down with ease. The chimney vent controls the total air˛ow through the oven body and can be adjusted while wearing heat resistant gloves. See page 14 for more information. 3. Fuel hatch Fully insulated to hold in heat. Remove when adding wood and charcoal to the burner. 4. Rear vent cap Covers the rear of Ooni Karu when cooking with wood or charcoal to control ˛ames. 5. Door Thick and fully insulated to retain heat, with a cool-to-touch handle. The door must be o˚ when cooking with gas.6.

Which fuel should you use? Ooni Karu has been designed for use with solid fuels, including real wood and charcoal, as well as propane gas with the use of the Gas Burner accessory. Whichever fuel you choose, Ooni Karu will cook incredible dishes. Note that Ooni Karu preheats super quickly and will heat most e˙ciently when topped up with fuel gradually, which creates the best environment to allow for proper air˛ow. Top up little and often to maintain consistent temperatures. Solid fuels should never over˛ow out of the grate and the fuel hatch should always be able to ˜t in place and close comfortably. Before you cook, use a hard- wearing brush to clean any excess ash or fuel residue from the grate so that the air can ˛ow through the perforations. Cooking with ˜re is as much an art as it is as a science Œ the following table will give you an idea of the results to expect from each fuel: * Please note that the above ˜gures are estimates and are dependent on weather and ambient temperatures. ** Gas Burner available at ooni.com. Region dependent. Fuel Temperature Bene˜tsCharcoal & Wood Up to 932°F (500°C)Lighting a base layer of charcoal keeps a steady, even temperature; adding wood will give a burst of heat and wood- ˜red ˛avor, which is perfect for pizza. See page 16 for lighting instructions. Wood Up to 932°F (500°C)Cooking with wood alone is the fuel of choice for Neapolitan pizza purists. Wood is also ideal for any food that enjoys a fast cooking time, such as steak, ˜sh and vegetables.See page 16 for lighting instructions. Charcoal Up to 932°F (500°C)Bake amazing bread, meat and more with charcoal. We love the option for low and slow cooking with charcoal and it gives you the option to bake thicker-crust and deeper-dish pizza. Charcoal will give a base temperature without excess ˛ame. See page 18 for lighting instructions. Gas **From 482-932°F (250-500°C)For cooking with ultimate speed and reaching super high temperatures very quickly, use the Ooni Gas Burner to create the ideal temperature for cooking pizza and so much more.

Chimney vent The easiest way to regulate temperature in Ooni Karu is through fuel management. The inbuilt chimney vent also allows for adjustments to be made to air˚ow and heat distribution through the oven. If your Ooni Karu is not running hot enough on wood or charcoal, check that your chimney vent is open and chimney cap is removed. This will provide maximum air˛ow and top temperatures through the oven. Open chimney vent – increases the draw of air through the oven, creating more powerful ˛ames and an increased heat. Closed chimney vent – reduces the draw of air for a smokier e˝ect and a lower heat. 1415Are your pizza toppings cooking faster than the pizza base? Simply close the chimney vent to bring down the ˛ames , which gives the pizza base more time to cook.

Cooking with wood The sounds of crackling wood and the incredible smell of a wood-burning ˜re make for a really sensory cooking experience and add wood-˜red ˛avor to food. We recommend cooking with 100% hardwood, which create powerful rolling ˛ames. Types of wood Always use kiln-dried hardwood for the best results. Beech and oak are our favourite to use in Ooni Karu. Do not use treated or painted wood. Wood with high resin content, such as pine or spruce, might add unwanted ˜avours to your cooking.1. Start with 3-6 pieces of wood in your grate and light with natural ˜restarters. You can also light with a blowtorch. 2. Refuel when the wood has mainly burnt to embers but before all visible ˛ames have disappeared. 3. Add fuel little and often and do not over˜ll – wood must not over˛ow the grate. 1.2.3.Size We recommend pieces of wood approximately 15cm (6fl). Too big Best15cmGood1617It is normal to see smoke when cooking with wood. Ooni Karu will burn cleanly and with minimal smoke when running at optimum temperatures.

Cooking with lump charcoal Lump charcoal o˚ers a wide range of temperatures and is an easy choice for low and slow cooking in Ooni Karu. We use charcoal for non- pizza dishes that do not need the same exposure to ˛ame. Use good quality, sustainably sourced lump charcoal like Ooni Premium Lump Wood Charcoal. Lump charcoal will burn down to a small amount of ash, reducing your clean-up. Do not use briquettes as they will block the holes in the grate, resulting in reduced air˜ow. 1. Start with 2-3 pieces of charcoal in your grate and light with natural ˜restarters. 2. Ooni Karu is not ready to cook when the charcoal is black and producing smoke. When your charcoal is glowing white with red centre, it is ready to cook.3. Top up little and often to maintain a good base temperature. Always leave room for air˛ow through the grate. combination of charcoal and wood is a great way to cook in Ooni Karu. You can achieve a steady base temperature with lump charcoal and adding wood gives a burst of heat and wood-˜red ˛avour.
