Lidl’s popular outdoor pizza oven made a return last week for less than £100 before quickly selling out as people try to make the most of their summers in lockdown.

The al fresco appliance, called La Hacienda pizza oven, was a huge hit among shoppers when the supermarket chain stocked it last summer.

The pizza oven is priced at £99.99.

Unfortunately the product has since sold out in stores nationwide and is not available to purchase online.

Lidl has been contacted to find out if stocks will be replenished any time soon.

This is nothing new for the popular oven, as when it hit the shelves last year, it sold out just as quickly across the whole of the UK.

What does the oven come with?

Along with the oven, buyers will also receive a cordierite pizza stone base for making 12-inch pizzas and a chrome-plated cooking grill.

The oven is constructed from durable steel and finished in a black high-temperature paint with a stainless steel flue.

Does it only make pizzas?

The oven not only cooks pizzas but has multiple functions, allowing you to also make barbecue-style treats, or smoke fish and meats.

How does Lidl’s oven compare to other stores?

At Argos, the same model is on sale for over £40 more, at £140. However, unlike Lidl, customers have the option to buy the oven online.

The same product was also on sale at The Range for £109.99, before it sold out.

Meanwhile, Aldi - Lidl’s main competitor - is selling a pizza oven for only £39.99. However the two ovens are very different, with the Aldi model requiring you to use it in conjunction with a barbecue.
