Paul - yep, last one I saw was a few months ago and I’m feeling a bit foolish for not jumping on it. This oven appears to have so much going for it in my particular application and oven-selection criteria:
Useful in a display cooking area (behind a former horseshoe shaped bar.)
Direct venting without a dedicated exhaust canopy hood and very little shed heat to the surrounding room.
High production capacity (I sit 150-200 comfortably and am also considering delivery)
Able to do multiple cuisine items beyond pizza while still doing a great job on pizza.
Disassemble-able so I can easily get it into my building (34-inch door) and into place (up a couple of stairs - 24-inch rise & run total) without subjecting myself to risk of death.
Any suggestions on other ovens that I might look at if I can’t come up with a Roto-Flex?
Last rotoflex I saw on ebay sold for $2500, but was an early 80’s model covered in fake brick. If you watch, you’ll see 5-8 per year sell there. I posted on the old think tank when I saw them on there a few times. As far as an alternative, I’m not sure there is one. The two buddies I have that use them wouldn’t trade them for anything. I use a Lincoln X-2 and a Middleby 570 because of the nature of my business. I would love to be in a situation that I could use one of these, but volume doesn’t allow. My reccomendation is if you are not in a big hurry, keep watching for one. You’ll never be as happy with regular deck ovens.
