British Thermal Unit (BTU)

BTU, or British Thermal Unit, is a unit of measurement commonly used in the field of energy to quantify heat energy. It represents the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.

In the context of gas-fired pizza ovens, BTU refers to the heating capacity of the oven’s burner, and it can play a crucial role in determining its performance. The BTU rating of a pizza oven indicates the amount of heat it can generate, influencing factors such as the oven’s preheating time and its ability to achieve and maintain high temperatures necessary for quick and efficient pizza cooking. Higher BTU ratings are often desirable for pizza ovens, as they contribute to faster cooking times and the ability to achieve the desired crispy crust and perfectly melted toppings
