    a while ago, I bought (sight unseen) an old Edge 40 oven (new) from some guy who won it at a show yrs earlier...

    after talking w/the folks at Edge, we picked it up, from this guys living room, still in shrink wrap...

    unwrapped it, set it place, looked at their video's...gas man connected & we fired it right up...

    temp was off & after a quick call to Edge, I had failed to properly install therm...

    after a few minutes, all was perfect...in just a few hrs...but, i've had a bit o experience w/the MM360’s...

    changing the fingers is a snap...far easier than a MM360...

    and did i mention the quiet?

    Mike and Mark are great guys and we have been super happy with our oven thats just coming up on 2 years. They are very responsive to questions and any issues that arise and you can't beat that warranty! To piggyback on a couple other comments, the quietness and utility savings were quite impressive as well.

    Old thread. I have a small space. Just wondering do the edge 1830's cook at the same quality as any of the lager ones?

    Can you cook a good calzone and stromboli in them?

    I know this is an old thread, but I'm currently deciding between XLT and Edge. Anybody have any updated reviews of either? I've heard only good things about both so I feel pretty good about going either way.

    When I was looking I found the Edge to have a better price than the XLT. I bought mine from @George Mills and was very pleased with the service.

    Granted this was approx 4-5yrs ago, but when I went to the Pizza Expo looking to make a switch from Roto-flex I was pretty much set on XLT. I did not know ANYTHING about Edge at that time but I met a guy who used Edge in a classroom session and he praised them so I checked them out. I found them to be extremely helpful in every way and offered to drive to my shop for a test bake. My experience at XLT was the total opposite...would not give me the time of day and came off as arrogant as if they were doing me a favor...real turnoff! Anyways, I did some more research and found XLT was more interested in franchises vs the independent and heard that XLT was louder than Edge although I have no facts to this. Obviously I went with Edge and could not be happier...absolutely NO issues in the last 4-5yrs and switching to conveyor has been a game changer. Good Luck!

    I was actually set on Edge because of all the reasons mentioned. I had assumed XLT were priced on the higher end so I never really gave them a thought. A very successful friend of mine in the industry recommended XLT. I looked into them and they're actually a little cheaper and have 2 more years of warranty covering parts and labor.

    how fix problem on XLT 1832
    One, the pizza may not be thoroughly baked. If the oven temperature is too high, the outer portion of the crust can be nice and brown, but the center has not been fully baked. In these cases, the crust is generally said to be more “doughy” than just gummy

    I know that the customer service you would receive from Edge will be superior to that of XLT and the Edge ovens are built with parts that you can source quickly through a supply company like Granger so if you needed repair your down time would be less.
