XLT Ovens Help Set Pizza Speed Record

WICHITA, Kan., – A Domino’s Pizza dealer in Findlay, Ohio, produced 206 medium cheese pizzas in hour, setting a new world record for number of pizzas baked in one hour.

The pizzas were baked in an XLT oven.

Domino’s franchise owner Brian Edler broke a Guinness World Record of 168 pizzas set in July by Bob Blumer, host of Food Network’s Glutton for Punishment, according to the Toledo Blade, www.toledoblade.com, who originally reported the news.

According to the Toledo Blade, Edler was marking Domino’s 50th anniversary and had trained three months for the event, which took place on Dec. 9.

Edler is experienced at pizza-making as a sport. He competed several times with the U.S. Pizza Team at the World Pizza Championship in Italy and has won the title of fastest pizza maker at several national and international competitions, according to the Toledo Blade.

Proceeds from his pizza sales were donated to the United Way of Hancock County and the City Mission of Findlay.

“XLT’s ovens are again making history,” XLT Vice President of Sales Peter Goodman said.
 
“We couldn’t have done it without XLT ovens,” Edler said.
 
XLT ovens are the result of nearly seven decades of first-hand manufacturing experience and the design analysis of thousands of conveyor ovens.
 
Wolfe Electric, the parent company, was founded in the mid-1940s by Roy Wolfe. The four-generation company first manufactured consumer and commercial fan systems and refrigeration products.
 
In the 1980s Wolfe Electric began refurbishing ovens for a major pizza chain. They quickly learned the strengths and particularly the weaknesses in oven design. This experience became the foundation for the expertise that goes into every oven the company manufactures today.
