General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is in the process of launching a pizza-grade oven for the home kitchen. The Monogram Pizza Oven is touted by GE to be the ultimate answer to families that want to produce their pizza at home instead of ordering one from the nearby restaurant. GE is promising to make its smart Monogram oven for pizza available in 3Q2016, but you will need a fat wallet to own it.

The restaurant that supplies you with pizza certainly uses special types of oven to make the kind of pizza that meets your taste. Those commercial ovens are capable of heating far above 800 degrees. Compare that with your home oven that will struggle to even reach 550 degrees. That explains why your present home oven cannot make a delightful pizza, and you know it. However, it won’t take long before you can start making commercial-grade pizza from your home kitchen, at least, if General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) makes good its promise.

Heating up to 1,200 degrees

General Electric Company (NYSE:GE)’s Monogram Pizza Oven will be able to heat up to 800 degrees in just a matter of minutes and before you know, your oven will be doing 1,200 degrees of heat. The oven depends on 14 heating elements to reach such blistering temperature within minutes. That should allow you to produce perfectly baked pizzas fast enough. According to GE, a prototype of the Monogram oven produced 100 pizzas within six hours.

The Monogram oven plugs into the 240-volt main, which means that you won’t be dealing with a wood-fired oven such as the kind that have become popular among DIY pizza makers.

Oven controls

General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) says temperature settings for the Monogram pizza oven will be done using a touchscreen placed outside the oven. Later, the company intends to release a smartphone app that one can also use to regulate the temperature of the Monogram oven.

Cost

Owning General Electric Company (NYSE:GE)’s Monogram Pizza Oven will set you back $9,900. Although the amount can buy you a large number of pizzas from the restaurant, nothing beats the satisfaction of being able to make your pizza at home.
