Artisan tandoori ovens were created with the sole objective of introducing the Australian public to the wonderful flavor and aromatic delights of ceramic oven cooking.
Rather than source a Chinese mass-produced Egg style oven, we have produced the original tandoor, in the same manner as they have been crafted and used by the populations of Asia minor and across the ancient Silk Road.
The entire process of tandoori ovens manufacturing is handcrafted by skilled ceramists and blacksmiths using only natural materials local to the Caucasus Mountains in Eurasia.
The manufacturing process and ceramics used is what guarantees a completely unique flavor. There are no chemical coatings in our process, whatsoever.
Entertain your family and friends with an Artisan tandoori oven and create a completely unique and memorable experience that will last a lifetime!
