A ceramic oven is an oven made of clay. The Indians call it tandoor. For thousands of years, different cultures have used clay ovens to cook food and make bricks.
Many cultures developed different types of ceramic cookers. For example, the Japanese created the mushikamado, a clay pot with a removable clay lid, which was used for steaming rice. Another type of ceramic oven is a brick oven. For centuries, the Italians have used brick ovens to cook food such as bread and pizza.
Modern ceramic ovens are more high-tech. Brands like Big Green Egg and Grill Dome have a hard-wearing ceramic glazed surface that can last for years.
