Spectrum Brands To Debut 5-Minute Pizza Oven

Spectrum Brands will unveil its Black + Decker-branded 5-Minute Pizza Oven and Snack Maker at the 2015 International Home + Housewares Show. The event in Chicago begins March 7.

According to the company, the 5-Minute Pizza Oven and Snack Maker is said to bake pizza in 5 minutes. The unit can fit up to a 12-inch family sized pizza, has custom engineered heating elements to accelerate cooking for perfect golden-brown cheese and crisp crust, accommodating both fresh and frozen pizzas.

“There are two major issues with cooking pizzas at home,” said Karen Baer, director of home appliances product marketing for Spectrum Brands. “The first is the time it takes to preheat a standard oven and the second is taste. While frozen pizzas can be a convenient dinner option, many times they don’t taste as good as pizzas from restaurants.”

With a separate snack setting, the oven also cooks frozen snacks. Additionally, the baking function bakes cookies or cinnamon rolls. The 5-Minute Pizza Oven and Snack Maker is equipped with a ceramic coated tray, which acts like a pizza stone assisting in creating crispy crusts, and doubles as a pizza peel when used with removable handle.

At this year’s Home + Housewares show, the company is teaming up with Top Chef Alum and owner of Good Stuff Eatery, Spike Mendelsohn, to officially launch the 5-Minute Pizza Oven and Snack Maker. Mendelsohn will host demonstrations highlighting recipes that can be made in the Pizza Oven at the Spectrum Brands’ booth (L11331) daily.

The 5-Minute Pizza Oven and Snack Maker will be available for purchase online in March and in stores this fall with a suggested retail price of $149.99.
