How does pizza taste when
baked in the Millennium?
The Millennium is a real brick oven that has a real
brick oven taste, so one thing we can promise you is
that everything tastes better when cooked in the Millennium.
What else can I cook besides pizza?

can broil steak, chops, fish, chicken, veggies, bake
breads, rolls, sausage, meatballs, au gratin, parmesan,
sauce, you can even heat sandwiches using our Pannini
plates. You can bake all dough products directly
on the deck. Other foods must either be cooked on a
sizzle platter, pannini plate or in a ceramic pot.
How much space is required?

How much does it cost to run the oven?
The Millennium only requires 50,000 Btu's to get
to temperature and once there, (due to our unique stay
hot deck) can be backed down to just 25,000 Btu's for
continuous cooking. In layman terms, the oven only costs
approximately .25 to .50 cents an hour to run.
In comparison, a double stack deck oven takes approximately
250,000 Btu's to cook continuously and can only produce
1/5th of the production capabilities of the Millennium.
It costs approximately 80% more to run a double deck
oven that can only produce 20% of the volume of foods!
Does the oven require a hood?
No. The oven has an internal plenum and is equipped
with an evacuation blower together with a frontal air
curtain which captures virtually all extraneous heat
and exhaust gasses which are expelled to the out of
doors via the flue. Unlike traditional ovens that require
a standard hood, the Millennium's built in hood does
not remove your air conditioning out of your establishment
saving you thousands of additional dollars per year.
How hot does the deck get?
The deck operates at temperatures of 550 to 700
degrees the cooking chamber approaches 1200 degrees.
Most establishments keep the deck temperature at 550
to 600 degrees fahrenheit. It takes approximately 1
hour or less for the oven to get to temperature.
How do you clean the deck?
Spills virtually vaporize in the Millennium. You
simply brush the deck occasionally. No salting or scrubbing
Do you have to use the bottom burner all the time?

temperature, the electronic thermostat automatically
regulates the bottom burner so your cooking surface

What is required for installation?
You need an 1 1/4" gas line for natural gas or LP gas,
a 110 electrical outlet and a 6" flue. Your local equipment
riggers or licensed mechanical contractors can install
the oven. Installation takes approximately 4 to 6 hours
for in a one-story building, and costs around $500 to
Do I need a permit?
Local codes dictate this. The Millennium is a moveable
piece of equipment on castors and is not built into
the building and should not require a permit. However
the 6" flue may require one.
Why should I purchase a Millennium 2000 Vx5 Brick
In order to match the production capabilities of
the Millennium, you would have to spend well over $50,000.
Additionally, at just 25k to 50k Btu's, the cost to
operate the Millennium is negligible compared to other
ovens, not to mention the savings you will enjoy by
eliminating the hassle of buying a hood. Your labor
costs and air conditioning bills should be substantially
less. When all is said and done, the Millennium shares
