What is a Tandoor?

A Tandoor is a cylindrical clay or metal oven used in cooking and baking.  The tandoor is ubiquitous across Asia and most popular in Indian & Pakistani cooking as well as across Asia.

While there are many types that look similar, very few can match the traditional taste and delicious flavor of food cooked in a traditional tandoor oven!

The real secret is that heat can only escape it through the top. The direct heat of the fire is reflected by the ceramic sides intensifying the heat and creating a cooking environment that easily reaches high heat.  One of the biggest advantages of these ovens is that once they are heated, they will maintain a consistent high temperature for hours.
