Daniel Thumwood, Founder of Harrison Ovens
Recently described as “an oven company unlike any other” by British GQ Magazine in a recent review, Harrison Ovens are a family-run business which embodies the spirit of artisan British craftsmanship. The brand rejects the high-volume mass production offered by faceless corporations all over the world, favouring an authentic, hands-on, and personal approach.
Each Harrison Oven is lovingly handmade between London and Ramsgate, Kent, having recently moved some of the manufacturing from their original home in London, to both a high performing and perfect degree; there’s certainly no sense of style over substance, when both are equally impressive.
Harrison Ovens was founded by real-fire cooking enthusiast Daniel Thumwood, whose particular interest in cooking in traditional ways using solid fuels started him on the path to artisan oven success. Deterred by the cumbersome and uninspiring nature of professional charcoal ovens, Daniel sought something different which would fulfil the same purposes and fit expertly into high end amateur cooks and boutique restaurants with open kitchens.
