Why Le Panyol?
A company of renowned quality, reliability and experience
Fayol is a distinguished French firm, having been involved with refractories of all types for over 150 years, oven masonry being just one of its many types.
During the nineties, the company developed its Le Panyol range of ovens which feature a faster and simpler assembly system based on neatly fitting parts with mortise and tenon joints, held together by a keystone.
Using the perfect balance of mass, volume and shape these easily assembled ovens are a modern version of the ancient clay oven, respecting the time-honoured knowledge that the heat efficiently stored in clay and masonry cooks our food better than any other material.
As a baking chamber, it is ideal for bread, pizza, and any dish or casserole. You can even grill meat, fish, and vegetables right on the hearth.
It is a healthy way to cook since there is no contact with the flame. It is even self-cleaning since the next fire thoroughly cleans the masonry.
Simple to Use
No electronics and no mechanics
Firing your oven and sliding your food in and out is an easy process that anybody can master.
Using pure clay taken from their own quarry, through to the kilning of the individual parts
