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.

Next Job On The Chopping Block: Pizza Delivery Guy. Dominos Is Testing A Pizza Delivery Bot

dominos-robot

There’s a lot of chatter these days about robotization, automation, and the impact it’s going to have on our lives. The reality is, it already has a huge impact, and it’s going to grow. Dominos Australia is testing the DRU, Domino’s Robotic Unit. It’s an automated delivery bot that can roam the streets all by itself, and bring you your order with no human intervention. To avoid hungry hoodlums stealing your food in transit, the compartment can only be unlocked with a smartphone app or a special code you’re given when you place your order. The company already tested the bot with a few customers in one neighbourhood, and everything went well. Don’t expect to see this at your door tomorrow though, since there are a host of regulatory requirements to meet before a fleet can be expanded beyond the prototype shown above. Still, it’s just a matter of time.

Pizza On Your Gas Stovetop? Yes, It’s Possible

Pizzeria-Pronto-Stovetop-Pizza-Oven

Getting a good pie requires a few elements, the most important of which is a really hot pizza oven. It’s not ever over that reaches the 600F that usually yield great results, but with the Pizzacraft PC0601 Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven you’ll get there in 15 minutes flat… as long as you’ve got a gas stovetop. If you do, once the temp is reached, your pie will be baked in as little as 6 minutes!

Most conventional ovens can only achieve temperatures of 500 F and require up to an hour to reach those heats. The Stovetop Pizza Oven can heat up to 600 F in about 15 minutes, allowing you to cook your pizza in as little as 6 minutes. The Stovetop Pizza Oven uses one of your stovetop’s gas burners to reach cooking temperature. Simply place the oven on top of your burner and turn it on. The oven’s heat-efficient design traps and reflects heat to create the optimal pizza-cooking environment. Dual cordierite baking stones absorb the direct heat from the flame and redistribute it evenly, eliminating hot spots. The stones are separated by a layer of air to diffuse heat, and the bottom stone has a cutout for improved airflow. The built-in thermometer lets you know when it’s time to cook, and the moisture vent in the top prevents your pizza from becoming soggy. With the Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven, you can get pizzeria-perfect pizza in your own home.

The device will yield 12 inch pizzas reliably, and costs a very reasonable $161.

Domino’s Launches a One-Click Pizza Order Button

Domino's+2

Think of it as an Amazon Dash for your pizza. Dominos UK will soon be launching a physical button that will let you order your favourite pizza at the press of a button. “The Easy Order” button will first debut as a “socially led” competition, followed by a second wider release in February. There’s also an app that lets you do pretty much the same thing, only without a fun little button in a mini pizza box, which is really the only cool thing about this whole gimmick. Matter of fact, although there’s no word on the button’s release stateside, you can already order your pies in a number of ways: “[customers in the US can order] via text and tweet an order using emoji, but also order via their smart TV or connected car by simply using their voice.”

Keep An Emergency Slice Of Pizza Around Your Neck

pizza-pouch

Oh, sure, this is a stupid product. It’s even sold by a store that goes by the name Stupidiotic! But hey, at least they take ownership of the stupidity of their products, and there’s something to be said about that kind of shameless confidence. The Pizza Pouch is, well, just a plastic pouch in which to store a single slice of pizza. There is a ziplock seal so the juices won’t flow out and the slice will remain… relatively fresh. And since you’ll be wearing a freakin pizza slice around your neck, you can expect to make a whole lot of friends, so you know, there’s that. It’s $8.

Too Bad You Can’t Eat It: Inflatable Pizza Slice Pool Float

Inflatable Pizza Slice Swimming Pool Float

Mushrooms, pepperoni, olives, and lots of cheese– that’s what makes a perfect pizza for me. However, regardless of your toppings of choice, you’ll undoubtedly be amused at the weirdness and awesomeness of this swimming pool float. Yep, that’s right: it’s shaped like gigantic slice of pizza. In this case, the crust is something you can’t do without, because it also serves as the head rest.

The 72-inch inflatable features cord connectors so you can combine additional loungers (imagine combining a couple of slices to form one whole floating giant pizza!) It also has two drink holders on board so you won’t be thirsty on your floating pie. Too bad you can’t actually sink your teeth into it…

It’s available online for $40+.

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

Screen Shot 2015-06-10 at 11.40.17 AM

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.

Pizza Hut Australia To Launch Meat Pie Stuffed Crust Pie

pizza-hut-meat-pie-1

Over the years we’ve come across some creative offerings from Pizza Hut. You guys remember the Cheeseburger Stuffed Crust Pizza? Or the Hot Dog Crust and Shrimp Tempura Pizza? Yeah, well the latest creation has the company stuffing tiny Meat Pies in the crust. Pizza Hut Australia is partnering up with Four’N Twenty, and they’ve announced this new venture with a series of tongue-in-cheek jealous tweets describing a romance gone wrong, and the birth of a lovechild, the Four’N Twenty Stuffed Crust Pizza. We don’t know how long this will last, nor if it’ll ever be exported to Pizza Huts outside of Australia, but we like the way the company is thinking. Because who hasn’t thought “gee, I’d really like some meat pie with this pizza.”? Amirite?
