Introducing Traditional Indian Cooking into Homes and Commercial Kitchens for Over 40 Years
Since 1976, Ron Levy and then Hōmdoor have inspired the growth of authentic Indian cuisine throughout the United States. As the most trusted name in tandoor manufacturing, Hōmdoor has supplied scores of restaurants with commercial clay ovens and has brought the joy of tandoori cooking into the homes of countless families around the world.
Originally imagined and developed by founder Ron Levy, Hōmdoor’s clay ovens were the first handcrafted tandoors in the country. Levy began making tandoori ovens for restaurants in New York City, and as the popularity of his tandoors grew, so did his innovative spirit. Levy soon brought modern ceramic technology to this traditional cooking method, and created the highest-quality clay ovens for authentic tandoori cooking in both restaurants and the home.
Indian Cuisine’s Newfound Popularity in American Food Culture
Once only found in private homes and a handful of restaurants, Indian cuisine has exploded across the modern American food scene. Now an exciting option for home cooks, casual eateries and fine dining establishments, Indian food and Indian-inspired fusion is regularly enjoyed by the masses.
As Indian cuisine’s immense popularity has spread, tandoori chicken is now a household name and naan bread can be found in grocery stores across the country. Over the past four decades, Hōmdoor has facilitated outstanding Indian cuisine in the United States with our unrivaled professional commercial and residential tandoori ovens. Today, our ovens continue to bring the exotic flavors of India and other exciting international cuisines to homes and restaurants across the country.
Our Passion: Unwavering Integrity and Superior Craftmanship
As the popularity of Indian cuisine and traditional tandoori cooking grew, founder Ron Levy knew he could no longer handcraft each clay oven on his own. Levy teamed up with Superior Clay, a clay manufacturer who could not only meet his increasing demand, but also his strict specifications and quality standards. In business for over a century, Superior Clay’s highly-skilled craftsmen individually shape each Hōmdoor clay oven.
Hōmdoor’s fidelity to only the best materials is also applied to the fabrication of our stainless-steel tandoors. Superior Clay works with a custom stainless-steel fabrication shop to fashion our top-of-the-line residential, catering and commercial tandoors.
Artfully crafted and made in the United States, our professional tandoori ovens are created with only the highest-quality materials. Hōmdoor’s unrivaled quality standards are only matched by our outstanding customer service. We love tandoori cooking and we work hard to inspire that same passion in our customers. At Hōmdoor, we are always happy to provide guidance, support or answer any questions you may have – and we wholeheartedly hope you come to love tandoori cooking as much as we do.
