The New Wave Multi Pizza maker is actually a really cool kitchen gadget in the fact that it’s really versatile. Initially, my thought was, “Oh man, another kitchen gadget?” But this is useful and it’s also pretty compact, though it can handle a 12-inch pie. The stone base makes for a crisp thin crust, but it also includes a deep dish pan which you can also use to heat up foods, make pies, pastries and egg dishes. It takes anywhere from about five to 10 minutes to cook a frozen pizza, depending on size.

If you enjoy a solid, Chicago style pizza, this is something you’ll want to add to your countertop appliance collection. Bear in mind, however, that this is not like using your at-home range oven. You will want to pay attention to the instructions that come with it, and preheat accordingly as it does get very hot.
