Make Restaurant-Worthy Pizza at Home with Monogram

Those looking for pizzeria-quality performance in an oven specially handcrafted for the home can achieve the perfect slice with the 30″ Monogram® Pizza Oven.

Now available in two striking styles, this indoor electric oven makes a bold statement with its dimensional design and lower vent system, or it can blend seamlessly into the lines of surrounding cabinetry for those who favor a subtle façade.

Introduced in 2016, the Monogram Pizza Oven combines the crisping performance of traditional coal- and wood-burning ovens with the precision and elegance of a sophisticated stainless-steel appliance. From touch LCD controls preset for multiple cooking options (including flatbreads) to perfectly placed electric heating zones, every aspect of this elegant pie maker is expressly designed to meet or exceed the capabilities of the best restaurant pizza ovens.

“From a simple four-cheese crowd-pleaser to a gourmet Neapolitan masterpiece, if you can imagine it, you can make it in your own kitchen with Monogram,” said Greg Delmonico, Monogram product merchandising manager. “And now, thanks to our top engineers and craftsmen, we are proud to offer two ultra-sleek designs that can add appeal to any design aesthetic.”

This innovative pizza oven is just another way Monogram is helping home chefs Elevate Everything™ in the kitchen, from its classic look to its ability to turn out perfectly crispy, bubbly, tasty crust. Developed through FirstBuild™, GE Appliances’ model microfactory of inspired appliance ideas, the Monogram Pizza Oven boasts other notable features, including:

  • Simple Installation

Fits a standard 30-inch wide cabinet cutout and requires no additional ductwork or ventilation.

  • Connected Capabilities

WiFi-enabled for use with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Drop. Additionally, timers and mode changes can be made in an instant using the mobile app.

  • Matchless Quality

Each component is handcrafted by true masters of their art down to the last detail.

“From its brushed stainless exterior to its intuitive controls, there’s a higher level of refinement that’s evident in our indoor pizza oven,” Delmonico said. “Monogram aims to impress with every detail, and we’re confident owners will agree we’ve delivered beyond expectations.”

Now Open in Denver

In October we opened a new Monogram Design Center at Specialty Appliance in Denver, Colorado. We interviewed Christina Dragota, Monogram Lead Product Specialist, to learn a little more about our new showroom.

SRFD: Tell us about the space.

Christina: It’s like a mini version of our Monogram Design Center in Chicago. People love that space because it not only helps them visualize what their kitchen could look like, but more importantly, what their home could feel like. We wanted to emulate that feeling, but on a more local level, so we decided to partner with Specialty Appliance and create a space that incorporates an innovative yet beautiful design.

SRFD: Why Denver?

Christina: It’s a great city that includes such a diverse manner of living where you can choose to be in a loft downtown, a cabin in the mountains, or both! The real estate business is thriving in Denver, so much so, that in this last year, home builders have increased production by 22 percent just to try to keep up with the incoming population. We wanted to tap into this growing market to really showcase what the Monogram brand is about and build a showroom where people can gather inspiration while learning about our products.

SRFD: What’s something there that is unique?

Christina: We have the first ever indoor, electric Pizza Oven, that requires no venting, NOW installed in a flush application (we don’t even have this in our Chicago location yet). No one has this technology available, let alone installed in this style, which is why we wanted to showcase it live. This allows people to come in our space to see, feel and use this exciting product. Seeing is believing- and we wanted people to take part in that experience.

SRFD: What else will be available in this space?

Christina: We offer cooking demonstrations with our on-site Chef and Design Center Manager so that customers are able to get an overall understanding of whichever products their interested in. When dealing with appliance technology, it’s important that the customer feels confident using it. Whether it’s using an induction cook top for the first time or wanting to perfect your Sous-Vide skills; we offer different types of demonstrations tailored to our customers’ interests. This way, they feel comfortable asking our Chef questions while enjoying meals prepared on our products.
