"Good to go", means that 2" of ceramic board, plus ceramic blankets come with unit?

What the dealer meant by good to go is that you don't need to add any of this.

If the oven is already in the stainless enclosure it is insulated. Their information seems to be confusing. A guy on another site got one of these ovens a few years ago and after insulating the heck out of it came to find out it was already insulated.

I just went to the local Ambrogi dealer and i checked the oven.
The dome height is 15 inches. It's low enough to cook Neapolitan pizza in it?

I just went and looked at them. For the money, you could build an entire outdoor kitchen, plus they look to use typical Neapolitan "insulation" which is midway between mass and insulation. The major fault I find with Neapolitan built ovens is that they use the insulation as a buttress for the low dome shape, which means that it has a high compressive strength which equals poor insulation. They are just not that an efficient design.

That said, for normal home use it won't matter that much, go for it if you can afford it.

it's actually pretty cheep (for where I live). The cost of the oven plus taxes, shipping and pizza peels is 2700$
