What is the difference with the Combiné L’Authentique? The two main differences are the cooking capacity and the size of each firebox. The Combiné Authentique has a larger floor and offers more cooking options (breads, simmered dishes). The Combiné Essentiel has the advantage of its size and price, which makes it a very good oven for those who only want to cook pizzas.

You want to bake bread? Unfortunately this is not possible with this model. It is not possible to close the door on the L’Essentiel oven to allow smoke (and heat) to escape. As a result, the temperature drop will be too sudden once the embers are removed. If bread is important to you, we recommend the Combiné L’Authentique.

An Ephrem wood-fired oven is:

Matériaux naturels

A natural raw material: Pozzolan

Each component of our ovens is made of refractory earth concrete, using natural, high-quality French raw materials. Our domestic ovens are made from pozzolan, a volcanic rock from the French Ardèche region, which we were the first to transform into concrete. The result is a high level of refractoriness, which ensures great inertia: the heat of the wood is stored and then slowly released as the cooking cycle progresses.

How does an Ephrem wood-fired oven work?

  • Kit: When you purchase an Ephrem oven, you are selecting a durable, affordable, and easy-to-assemble wood-fired oven kit. Whether you decide to install the oven yourself or hire a professional, our detailed instructions will assist you throughout the process. If you have any inquiries or uncertainties, we are here to provide assistance and support.
  • Insulation & chimney: our wood-fired oven kits need to be insulated according to our recommendations and connected to a chimney. For optimal operation, it is imperative to provide good insulation and to ensure that the smoke evacuation system is correctly installed. When properly installed, your Ephrem wood-fired oven will stay warm for a long time, allowing you to make the most of all its functions.
  • Customisable: as part of a ready-made kit, our ovens can be cladded in your own style. Whether the oven is visible or completely integrated into the structure: it’s up to you. Plastered or mosaic finishes, chamber or dome mounting: decorate as you wish.
  • Or turnkey, with Le Flambeur: go for an all-inclusive version and choose a contemporary oven design for a tasty & aesthetic wood-fired kitchen.
  • Wood-fired cooking: discover the unique taste of wood-fired pizza, the smell of bread straight out of the wood-fired oven, or the tender inside and braised outside of your grills. In addition to its versatility, using an Ephrem wood-fired oven encourages you to take your time, enjoy the moment and learn by making.

Tips & FAQ


You couldn’t find the answer?

Got a question? Chances are the answer is right here!

  • How to choose your Ephrem wood-fired oven?

    The important questions to ask yourself when choosing your oven are: is it for domestic or professional use? how much space do I have? what do I want to cook in the oven? how many guests can I feed with the oven? what is my budget? By answering these questions you can filter the ovens according to the minimum dimensions of the load-bearing slab, the size of the oven, its cooking capacity and its price. If you still are unsure, do not hesitate to contact us.

  • How long does it take to deliver?

    It is possible to collect our domestic wood-fired ovens (excluding the Combinés and the Flambeur) from the factory on the same day as your purchase. For professional ovens, collection within 2 days is also possible from our premises. In either case, please ensure that you have a vehicle suitable for transporting the weight of the oven and a pallet measuring 100x120cm for domestic ovens or 110x130cm for professional ovens. The home delivery service by carrier guarantees receipt of your order within 8 to 10 days from the time the order is processed for metropolitan France. For Corsica and export: please contact us.

  • How long does it take to build an Ephrem wood-fired oven?

    An Ephrem wood-fired oven kit such as the Authentic Pizzaiolo can be installed in one day, excluding the drying time for the base (48 hours). The overall construction will require about a month’s work, including the assembly and drying time of the load-bearing slab, the installation of the oven, its insulation and then the completion of the framework (roofing, cladding). A useful tip is to start the load-bearing slab before receiving your oven and to dry your sand to save time.

  • How do I insulate my Ephrem wood-fired oven?

    There are two ways to insulate your oven: in a box or in a dome. You can find our recommendations on this subject in this article.

  • The construction of my oven is completed, how do I get it started?

    The first few warm-ups are very important. They are part of a sometimes forgotten stage called “dehumidification”. This involves gradually heating the oven in order to evacuate the humidity from the structure before using it. You can find our advice on dehumidifying in the dedicated article here.
