Snug and stylish outdoor entertaining

Be the envy of your neighbours and dominate the backyard BBQ scene this summer with one of the hottest trends in outdoor entertaining for 2016 – the combined outdoor heater and cooker.

This stylish Morso Forno with its curved edges and sleek design is more than just a contemporary looking outdoor heater, it makes the most delicious food too – as it also offers a combined grill and pizza oven.

The wide, low ceilinged firebox of the Morso Forno produces optimal radiant heat – spreading warmth on your patio – but there’s plenty of space to push the firewood aside when it’s time to cook. Internally, the oven is shaped like an Italian stone oven – which makes it perfect for preparing crisp, fresh pizzas and perfect bread in just a few minutes. Or pop in the grill grate and you can easily prepare fish, steaks and traditional BBQ favourites as well as mouth-watering slow cooking dishes too.

The Morso Forno oven is available with a range of accessories including the Forno Garden Kit which includes the oven sitting on a large table (which offers handy prep space, plenty of storage for wood under the table top, hooks for hanging utensils and pizza oven tools), a Tuscan grill insert, ash scraper, 3 bags of kindling wood. An attractive and easily manoeuvrable unit which allows you to enjoy the Morso Forno in a variety of locations. There’s even an optional door to turn the oven into a perfect smoker for fish, meat and more.

The large open mouth of the Morso Forno (which makes it perfect for toasting marshmallows) also makes it incredibly easy to light and it can be fuelled by charcoal or wood.

Made from robust cast iron and designed to live outdoors, the Morso Forno brings heat, ambience and the freedom of outdoor cooking to your alfresco entertaining – allowing guests to continue to relax in a warm environment without needing to retreat indoors.

The Morso Forno, the Morso Forno Garden Kit and a range of Morso Outdoor Living products are currently on display at Exeter based showroom Hearth & Cook. The Morso Forno available from Hearth & Cook is priced at £1099 and the Morso Forno Garden Kit at £1699.
