Update: Like the sound of the Uuni 2S? Why not check out the newer Uuni 3 oven which is packed with all of these features and more?
Behold, the pizza-oven of the future! Among the many other things that Scandinavians do exceptionally well, they can now add chic stainless steel pizza-ovens that will delight and surprise at any gathering of pizza-hungry guests. If rustic Italian-style pizza ovens are what turn you on, then you might be put off by the shining exterior of the Uuni 2S. But we think you should give it a chance. Here’s why.
This uniquely designed modern pizza-oven uses efficient biomass wood-pellets – which are much cheaper than other forms of wood-kindling – to cook delicious crispy pizzas, still with an authentic wood-fired flavour. What’s more, it can cook them to perfection in less than 90 seconds. That’s an awful lot of pizzas per hour. It’s a wonder they don’t use these babies in restaurants… yet.
The Uuni 2S comes with everything you need: there’s no need to buy all the standard pizza-oven owner accoutrement separately. Included are a stainless steel pizza-peel and stone baking board, along with the official Uuni carry bag and a great big 10kg bag of wood-pellets, if you choose the bundle deal (and why wouldn’t you?). Weighing just over 10kg itself, the oven is super lightweight, so you can easily pack it up and take it with you on trips. Tasty stonebaked pizza and garlic bread while camping with friends in the woods? Yes please.
The lovely thing about the Uuni (which means ‘oven’ in Finnish) is that it’s so simple, both in design and usability. All you have to do is pop the wood-pellets into the back section of the oven, and the flames will be drawn across the underside of the roof to give the desired wood-smoked taste. The Uuni is ready to go in 15 minutes, taking approximately 5 minutes to assemble and 10 minutes to reach optimum cooking temperature. It’s also extremely versatile, as the removeable door makes it possible to cook plenty of other meals, such as meat, fish and vegetables.
Not for nothing, the Uuni 2S has received several awards since it came onto the market, including the Glee ‘Retailers’ Choice Award‘ and ‘Best New Product Award’ at the East London Design Awards. Available for free delivery throughout the UK, this astonishingly good value pizza-oven sells out fast. You can pick one up today from Amazon, among other good retailers.
