I love starter bundles! When I bought my Vitamix blender, it came with 2 extra jugs, 6 books, DVDs, spatulas…. Everything I needed to get blending straight away.

The problem with bundles and pizza oven kits is that it can be very hard to figure out what exactly is included. That’s what my intention is today: showing you exactly what is included in
Ooni Koda 16 vs Ooni Pro vs Ooni Karu Pizza Oven Bundles
I’ll start with a table. We all love tables 😀 This is a table of what is included in the starter bundles.
I won’t go into a full comparison of

What’s in the Pizza Oven Kits?

Ooni Pizza Oven Kits Worth it?
That’s the big question I suppose. Are
My opinion…. no.
I don’t believe you’re saving a whole lot of money by buying your
What you do gain is convenience. You don’t need to find yourself a pizza peel for your oven. It conveniently comes in the kit, as does the pizza cutter.
Say you wanted to buy an Ooni Koda 16 oven (did I mention what a great choice that is?).
Regarding the perforations, Ooni mentions:
“Use the tapered peel edge to slide straight under pizza bases, while the perforations mean a perfectly cooked pizza every time as steam is able to quickly evaporate and excess flour falls away from the pizza base.
A super-sleek, hard anodised coating provides increased corrosion resistance and a hyper-smooth surface to guarantee a seamless experience when launching and retrieving pizzas.”
You are now technically ready to bake a pizza in your
For me, it’s about choices though. I probably would change the peel for a perforated peel and I wouldn’t add a pizza cutter because I’ve already got one.
Ooni Pro Pizza Oven Kit
Let’s look at the
This bundle comes with quite a few things, including a cover which I really like. The cover only costs $49.99 so it’s not a big deal to add it separately, but to have it included in the kit is nice. The whole kit is a bit more “pro” than the other kits. A perforated peel rather than a standard peel. A cutter blade rather than a cutter wheel.
However… I, personally, would not necessarily want the gloves nor the cutter blade. So, what does it work out to be without the gloves and cutter?
The price of the kit is $699, so in this case, YES! Buy the bundle. You’re getting the cool blade cutter AND the gloves for free!
Ooni Karu Pizza Oven Bundle
Finally, a quick look at the Karu bundle.
It comes with a classic 12″ peel, a standard cutter wheel, and firestarters. Again, say I didn’t want the cutter, but I do want the firestarters because how on earth would I light the oven otherwise.
Especially not if you wanted to add the 12″ perforated peel, which is not included in the bundle anyway. You can get a cover for the Ooni Karu too, valued at $39.99. It’s a carry cover that basically turns your pizza oven into a bag!
Ooni Pizza Oven Bundle Conclusion
If you want to buy the Ooni Pro oven, go for it. You’re getting great value with this kit and it includes the perforated peel.
If you want to buy the Ooni Koda 16 oven or the Ooni Karu oven, make up your own kit. You’ll have the choice of standard peel or perforated, your choice of cutter, and you can choose if you want to add gloves, firestarters, etc.
They’re tough, stainless steel, and come with lockable castor wheels – move them around easily.
