Last night program 02/10/20

Hi there,
At the end of the program last night, there was a gentleman in London showing the magnificent tomatoes he has grown but there was also briefly a glimpse of his outdoor oven where he showed some sundried tomatoes he has baked in it. Does anyone know which brand the oven is? 
Thanks so much for your help.

    I don't know which programme you mean, but if you contact them - I'm sure they'll have a website, they will possibly be able to help  :)

    It featured on the Gardeners’ World programme at 54’ 13”.

    Interestingly he said he built it rather than bought it so there might be an element of DIY in the fixture. I looked through Google images where there were hundreds and hundreds of ovens, some very similar, but none that I saw was exactly the same. The featured oven had a black front and chimney with a white oven body. The chimney is at the front of the oven and there is a small oval maker’s mark in the bottom right corner.

    Ah - sorry, of course. I don't watch it now.  :)

    I believe he said it was a pizza oven.  The programme is repeated on Sunday morning on BBC2 or you can watch again in i-player but I just dry my toms in trays in the fan oven.

    @purplepatchmusic    As @Obelixx  If I can't get mine dry outside in the sun (which I usually can), the oven warmer is perfect.  Put them on the wire rack.  Takes a while (and patience).
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    I've shared it before but Nigella's way is easy and fool proof, works with any smaller tomatoes or larger ones, sliced in smaller pieces

    Building a pizza over to dry tomatoes is a bit OTT

    He built it himself. hopefully he also uses it to cook pizzas ! He certainly had enough tomatoes to use for toppings.

    It has been my lockdown epiphany, making sourdough pizzas at hope he does @AnniD ;) Easily replicated with a baking steel and no fancy speciality ovens.
