Meet ZIGZAG, the Welsh dragon that breathes fire

ZIGZAG is the outdoor oven that can fire pizzas as well as your imagination. Designed and made in South Wales, the ZIGZAG is the ultimate home accessory for people who enjoy cooking, parties and the great outdoors.

Introducing ZIGZAG

The new way to enjoy great food outdoors

Created by John Tomalin-Reeves, dubbed 'the Dyson of the barbecue' by media, ZIGZAG is an ergonomic, wood-firing masterpiece designed to add a touch of theatre to your dishes. Whether it's slow-cooked shanks, sizzled sea bass or a speedy Margherita, ZIGZAG has the answer.

What makes the ZIGZAG different?

Below are just some of the reasons you need to buy a ZIGZAG today

Floating Pizza Stone

The ZIGZAG features an innovative floating baking stone which allows for the flames to heat it from beneath as well as over the top. This means that the stone gets up to cooking temperature much quicker.

Compact & Portable

The ZIGZAG has a compact footprint which ensures that no excess material is wasted in production. Whether at home, on the beach, or at the campsite, ZIGZAG goes where you go.

Home grown

Handmade in Wales

Every single part of this product is made in Wales, in factories that support our communities and our families. We will never take production outside of Britain.

A smart little outdoor oven

These are the features of the product

It's taken three years of development to perfect the ZIGZAG, here's what we've done:

Flat top surface

The flat top surface allows the top of the oven to be used as a work surface.

Thermometer points

Thermometer insert points at the top, bottom and upper rear zones to get accurate air temperature readings from different parts of the oven.

Fixing points

Multiple threaded M6 fixing points allow for the addition of accessories as well as customisation. Allows for tie-down points for tailgating.

Removable legs

The legs are easily removable which makes the ZIGZAG more stowable. Great for camping or tailgating.

Floating baking stone

The 330mm square floating baking stone easily allows for a 12 inch pizza, casserole dish or sizzling pan.

Heat shield

The heat shield protects work surfaces below from heat build up and also doubles as a pizza peel pouch.

Removable backplate

The backplate is removable to allow cleaning of the interior and the interchanging of the gas module. (2020)

Ignition Chamber

A lower chamber accommodates firelighters located beneath the charcoal or wood for foolproof lighting.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will the ZIGZAG cost on indiegogo?

The official retail price of the ZIGZAG will be £495 but it has been reduced by £100 during the crowdfunding campaign. It is a superb offer which gives you the chance to not only enjoy incredible food from the comfort of your own garden but to support British jobs too.

When will I receive my ZIGZAG?

Production will begin as soon as the campaign ends with the first ZIGZAGs being delivered within 30 days. ​

Do you ship worldwide?

What fuel can I use in my ZIGZAG?

The ZIGZAG as standard is wood and charcoal fired as we've found this gives the best tasting food. For convenience however, we will be launching a gas adapter in 2020 that will work with all ZIGZAG models.
