My oven has a dumb safety feature ... it doesn't get hot.

The built-in oven in my rented accommodation switches off when it gets hot — an unusual design decision, you might suppose. Thing is, it's not broken as such, just awkward, so getting it replaced by the landlord is unlikely. What alternatives could I use?

Frankly, it drives me nuts, especially when I'm trying to cook home-made pizza, which demands a sizzling-hot oven for best results. Googling for "free-standing oven" turns up standard ovens which you would install in a kitchen: I would like something I can plug in somewhere (space is available), or which runs on bottled gas, and provides a decent-sized oven for baking, roasting, pizza-ing, etc. I was thinking about one of these
or similar, but they don't look butch enough to do the necessary. I'm in the UK.
