Our ovens are natural, solid and well built. With over 80,000 wood-fired ovens sold since 1975, Ephrem has a proven track record of flawless quality. Our ovens also withstand the test of time – our first ovens are still being used today.
All our ovens have a 5-year warranty, with a 10-year warranty for our baker ovens.The manufacture
We produce our ovens in Haute-Provence. Everything is made in our workshops in Villeneuve and our suppliers and service providers are French.
Our raw materials are also French. Our pozzolan, the main material used in our Ephrem residential wood-fired ovens, is a volcanic rock from Ardèche, in southeast France. Our chamotte, a fire-clay used for our professional wood-fired ovens, comes from Aquitaine.The manufacture
Ephrem ovens have exceptional thermal inertia so they’re quickly ready to use. Our refractory concrete wood-fired ovens are made entirely of volcanic rock, pozzolan, or chamotte, a clay with extremely high fire-resistant properties. With their high thermal inertia, they consume less wood, with an optimum yield and a very long cooking cycle, which means that you can cook lots of batches in a single use.The manufacture
