Charlie Oven is the perfect Christmas gift for the foodie in your life.
Seven reasons why Charlie Oven is the perfect Christmas gift.
- Charlie makes some of the most delicious food you'll ever cook.
Maybe fish, charcoal-grilled with the taste of the Mediterranean? Seafood, cooked so fast it retains all its natural moisture? Char-grilled vegetables, with depth and layers of flavour? A melt-in-the-mouth slow-smoked leg of lamb? Piping-hot, succulent sourdough bread? Caramelised peaches? A hint of smokiness in the sugary crust of an apple crumble? Three or four fluffy, wood fired pizzas all cooked at once, maybe even while you're entertaining friends?
- Charlie is a game-changing innovation in outdoor cooking.
It's a BBQ, it's a pizza oven, it's a grill, it's a smoker, it's a bread oven … and it does all of those brilliantly. With almost no effort at all. You can set and hold Charlie's temperature from 100°c for low ‘n’ slow cooking, or smoking, up to 400°c for incredibly fast searing of meat or cooking pizzas … or anywhere in between. Serious cooks love its nine cooking heights (where each of its racks holds a full-size catering oven tray). Which means that you can cook with direct heat (close to the charcoal) and indirect heat (further up in the oven) all at the same time.
- Charlie is so easy to use, you'll wonder why you ever cooked with anything else.
Simply load it up with charcoal, firelighters, and food that requires indirect heat, such as a roast or a turkey. Open the vents, then shut the door and leave it for about 20 minutes. The ash from your food falls through into the ash drawer, which can be easily removed and emptied into a trash can. When your food is ready to come out of the oven, just lift out each rack using the handles on either side and scrub them clean with a wire brush; then wipe down the exterior with warm water and soap.
- Our Charlie Oven is a present that you can enjoy looking at every single day.
A range of beautiful colours, inspired by food ingredients, pop in the garden all year round so even on the greyest day, our Charlie Oven will brighten up your lovely outdoor space.
- Charlie is an incredibly efficient, sustainable way to cook.
It’s nice to feel good about the gift that you’re giving: with the Charlie oven, you’re using an amazing, sustainable biofuel (if you choose the right charcoal, like Whittle and Flame) and using about half the fuel of an open grill.
Charlie works in a totally different way to an open BBQ grill. Its heat is nearly all retained in the oven. It cooks for hours and hours on a small load of charcoal. It’s all down to the way it’s made and the way it works, with the cooking heat conserved by the thermal mass of the steel and its built-in ceramic thermal blanket. Which also means that it cooks from every direction at once, in controlled, precise, even way.
- Charlie is the best way to cook Christmas dinner, bar none.
Just add charcoal, light the oven, set the temperature. And in goes your turkey. The potatoes. The Brussels sprouts. Vegetables of your choice. Pigs in blankets. Gravy. Whatever you want (Charlie has 2.5 times the capacity of a regular domestic oven). Then – when that’s all done - dessert: pudding and mince pies maybe? All in one, all done. So simple! And delicious: moist and subtle smoky flavour all sealed in by the Charlie oven (and no washing up!).
- Charlie is not just for Christmas, it’s for life.
Our Charlie Oven is something to treasure. It’s made in Britain from solid steel and is weatherproof. All the fittings and the interior of the oven are made from stainless steel. The exterior is powder coated paint to stay looking fantastic for many, many years. What’s more, its front-opening design, its hands-off style of cooking, along with its advanced insulation, minimise heat loss and protect your food from the elements; so, you can use it whatever the season, whatever the weather. If you treat someone to a Charlie oven, they’ll end up using it day in, day out. As a final thought, we always like to say that a Charlie oven isn’t just for Christmas—it’s for life! Buy well; buy once."This just might be the time to treat someone you love (or maybe even yourself!) to a Charlie outdoor charcoal oven.
It’s for someone who loves to cook. Someone who loves to have the best of the best. Someone who likes to be first with the latest and greatest kit. Someone who enjoys the delights of outdoor living. If you love a person just like that, then the Charlie outdoor charcoal oven is the perfect Christmas present.
