OhGizmo! Review: The Uuni 2S Is The Portable Wood-fired Pizza Oven You’ve Been Waiting For

Uuni-20160127-7306

There’s a bunch of ways you can make your own pizza at home, but if you ever have a chance to get it cooked in a wood-fired oven, you’ll realize just how awesome these are. Unfortunately, these tend to be huge, not portable in the least, cost a fortune, and therefore are out of reach. The Uuni 2S that we received as a review unit a few weeks ago however is none of the above. It’s extremely portable and costs a very reasonable $300. It uses granulated wood pellets as fuel, which are energy dense and low in cost, and is able to reach temperatures of 900F (480C) in as little as 10 minutes of heat-up time. That’s hot enough to cook a pizza in 2 minutes. Or at least, this is what the company claims. So how did it do? Let’s find out.

The Roccbox Portable Stone Bake Oven Will Bake You A Pie In 90 Seconds

Burgers, dogs, and kabobs are stapes at BBQs. But it’s not too often you’ll see people making pizza. That’s because tossing an uncooked pie on a regular grill might not get you the best results. But if you pack the Roccbox, everything changes. The innovative design features a slab of stone, and a specially designed rear burner that works either with gas or wood. In 15 minutes you can have a 500C (932F) oven, which can take your pie from raw to cooked in 90 seconds flat. The outer section is covered in a protective silicone shell, which helps in not getting your fingers toasted along with your pizza. But it isn’t only pizza that you can make in the Roccbox: “it enables the baking of breads, cooking of fish, roasting of meats, vegetables, desserts and much, much more.” It is portable at 20kg (44lbs), but not exactly super light. Still, for what it does, we are intrigued. And at £349 ($541USD), it’s not outrageously expensive.

A Pizza Oven That Looks Like A Pizza Box

pizza-oven

Other than “why not?”, we can’t think of a single reason why anyone would want a pizza oven that looks like a pizza box at first glance. But hey, as long as it makes decent pizza, right? The 1,200-Watt heating element can bring temperatures up to 525 degrees Fahrenheit, and the rotating inner dish ensures that pizzas up to 12 inches across can get baked evenly. A 30 minute timer allows you to go do something else and not worry about burning your pie. Sure, it’s a gimmick but at $48, it’s not a complete waste of money.
