Heating Power

One of the very best parts of this oven and something that gives you far more control over your food and how it’s cooked is how with the turn of a dial you can go from 350ºF for heating up and baking cookies, all the way up to 700ºF+.

On the high end, you have plenty of heat to bake pizzas in 1-2 minutes for epic pizza nights.

The front door is removable so you can watch all the cheese melting and the sauce bubbling while the dough becomes nice and fluffy.

In terms of preheating time, you'll only need to plan for 20-30 minutes to get your oven up to temperature, which is definitely on the lower end of the spectrum compared to other outdoor ovens on the market.

Ease Of Use

The ease of use might be the biggest factor that makes this product so good and a must have for outdoor cooking enthusiasts who want the best options for preparing baked food.

With the traditional wood fueled pizza ovens, while you do get a lot of heat once it’s actually lit, wood burners will still take a long time to actually heat up and start cooking since it can often take a while to get a fire started.

Additionally, cleaning out the pit each time and refueling it with more wood can take a bit of time that we might not always have available at that moment.

This Lynx Napoli avoids that issue by using gas instead of wood as the main heat source which is not only just as hot, but can be ready to cook in just a handful of minutes in comparison so you won’t need to be waiting around for very long.

The other main ease-of-use feature is the smooth glide cooking surface that easily pulls out so you can access your food without having to maneuver equipment through the oven.


This oven fits perfectly as part of an outdoor kitchen. It’s sleek, shiny and a great size that isn't too bulky but also isn't small by any means.

The Napoli features a staple of Lynx products, the hand polished mirror edges which contribute to the modern and sleek look of the oven.

The specifically formulated concrete refractory interior dome and cooking surface also helps the grill to stay steady and durable at all times.

You also get interior lighting which illuminates your cooking area, along with Lynx signature LED lit control knobs.


This outdoor pizza oven comes with 400 square inches of cooking surface which is more than enough for a single large pizza or two moderately sized or small ones.

While this may sound like a modestly sized cooking surface, the slide out mechanism allows you to truly utilize every square inch.

The overall dimensions of the oven are 29" H x 30" W x 28.50" D.

Final Thoughts

Pizza ovens such as the Lynx Napoli model are incredible for their versatility.

While they work excellently for pizzas and are designed for them in a way, they will also cook essentially any baked goods a lot faster and more thoroughly than a regular oven would and the same applies even for vegetables and some desserts

Its heating settings are state of the art, the dials are incredibly easy to use and it has a plethora of advantages over fire fueled pizza ovens.

The bottom line is while it may be pricey, the Lynx Napoli Outdoor Oven is designed to be the last outdoor oven you will ever need to buy and puts a lot of other models to shame with how effectively it can cook.

Baking outdoors has never been so easy, so if you can look past the size and have the funds to spend, this oven is a must have for any pizza, baking and outdoor cooking enthusiast.
