The Ardore Pizza Oven is a pretty famous oven in European countries and the Roccbox is one of the best portable pizza ovens out there.
It is going to be interesting to compare both the pizza ovens and see which one is better for cooking pizzas.
I have always loved the Roccbox Pizza Oven as it is the best one out there after the Ooni Pro.
Ardore is an oven that I came across recently and after reading a ton of reviews about the oven, it was a must to create a comparison post among the two ovens, Ardore and Roccbox.
Design and Build Quality
The Ardore Pizza Oven is all metallic with a stainless steel finish and it comes with a large cooking space inside. The cooking space is clearly larger than the Roccbox pizza oven.
It is a gas-fueled portable pizza oven which means you can carry this thing around with you on camping trips.
The Ardore Pizza oven does not come with a pizza peel or any other accessories like the Roccbox.
The Roccbox is a nice green and gray colored pizza oven that looks attractive. When you look at both the pizza ovens, one can clearly tell that the Roccbox looks more aesthetically pleasing.
The Roccbox comes with a strap that can be used to easily carry the pizza oven if needed.
Roccbox is a multi-fueled pizza oven and you get both the wood burner and the gas burner attachment along with the pizza oven.
You even get a temperature dial and a pizza peel with the oven which is not the case with the Ardore Pizza Oven.
The temperature dial is good enough to know the temperature inside the oven and you can use it as an estimate to cook pretty good pizzas.
In the case of Ardore Pizza Oven, you would need to depend on the IF thermometers to measure the temperature.
Overall, I think the Roccbox Pizza Oven is more user-friendly and comes with everything that you would need for getting started with cooking a pizza oven.
Ease of Use and Portability
Both the Pizza Ovens weigh exactly the same. They are both easy to carry around and you get a strap that you can wrap around the Roccbox which makes moving the oven around an easy task.
The Roccbox comes with all the accessories needed to get started with cooking and in the Ardore Pizza Oven, you need to buy them separately.
The Roccbox is a multi fueled pizza oven so it comes with both the wood and gas attachments and you do not need to buy anything separately.
This is something that I really liked about the Roccbox Pizza Oven. If you are a beginner then it might be a little annoying for you to get the accessories separately.
This makes Roccbox Pizza Oven the easier to use pizza oven out there.
Cooking inside the Pizza Oven
The cooking space inside the Ardore Pizza Oven is larger than the Roccbox Pizza Oven. This means that you can cook anything inside the oven inlcuding meat, fish and even cook vegetables.
The Roccbox has a slightly smaller cooking area but even then you can manage cooking many dishes but you might have to adjust in a few cases.
The Pizzas cooked in both the ovens are pretty similar and they take about the same time.
It takes about 1-2 minutes to cook inside both the ovens depending on the temperature of the pizza oven.
You should check the temperature of the pizza oven before inserting the pizza inside, make sure the temperature is above 500 degrees Fahrenheit so that you get the best results.
The pizzas cooked inside had leopard print which is classic Neopolitan style pizza and if you go wood-fired version on the Roccbox then you get even better results when it comes to the taste.
However, you have to acknowledge that you can use the Roccbox Pizza Oven as a wood-fired pizza oven which is not the case with the Ardore.
Being a muli-fueled pizza oven, Roccbox definitely has more benefits to offer in comparison to the Ardore Pizza Oven.
Both the pizza ovens are durable and they can last you a really long time.
The maintenance of the pizza ovens is easy as all you need to do is wipe the oven down with a wet cloth and for the insides, you can clean the cooking surface with a brush.
The Roccbox Pizza Oven comes with a warranty for a year and the Ardore Pizza Oven has a warranty for two years.
Both the Roccbox and the Ardore Pizza Ovens are pretty good, however, when it comes to choosing one among them, I have to admit that the Roccbox seems like a better option.
In Roccbox, you get all the accessories that you need to get separately with the Ardore Pizza Oven.
Roccbox and Ardore have the same price and you get so much more with the Roccbox pizza oven when it comes to the features.
A major difference being that the Roccbox is a multi fueled pizza oven you can use it as a wood-fired or gas-fired oven, unlike the Ardore which is a gas-fueled oven.
The Roccbox also comes with a temperature dial that is not there on the Ardore Pizza Oven. The only plus side of using the Ardore Pizza Oven is that you get a relatively larger cooking space.
The Ardore is pretty good if you are living in Europe as it is more accessible but if you live in the U.S. then you should think twice.
The Ardore also has a waiting list so you never know when the pizza oven would be back in stock.
Roccbox is available in the U.S. and U.K., making it a better option overall. I think I would recommend the Roccbox Pizza Oven any day.
If you want more space then rather go for the Ooni Pro which is better than both the Pizza Ovens and has around the same price.
