Uuni 3
Angela Slater
Daughter of a farmer and market gardener so have always had a connection with the outdoors, whether it was keeping animals or producing fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Along with my work at Hayes Garden World I also have a smallholding, mainly breeding rare breed pigs. I gained an HND and BSc in Conservation and Environmental Land Management, as a result I am an ardent environmentalist and have a keen interest in environmentally friendly gardening. In my time at Hayes I worked for several years in the Outdoor Plant and Houseplant areas

The Unique Uuni 3

Enjoy fresh home-made pizza on the beach or in the countryside

If you’re a fan of outdoor cooking then this latest offering from Uuni will be right up your street; it is an improved version of the Uuni 2S. The Uuni 3 also reaches 500°C (932°F) in just 10 minutes, and can cook an authentic wood-fired pizza in an incredible 60 seconds. The patent-pending oven runs on wood pellets which are both energy-dense and inexpensive and are sustainably sourced from environmentally managed forests. The new model has a new highly insulated body which retains the heat and helps distribute it evenly around the chamber.

There is also a new grate and hopper which enables better control over the temperature and more consistent cooking. The new design has 3 legs instead of the 4 which is a feature of the Uuni 2S; this results in the oven being more stable, and therefore safer, on uneven ground. The chimney is attached by a new clip mechanism which make it easier to dissemble and pack away.

 

 

It still retains the robust stainless steel construction which means you can leave it outdoors all year round, but there is available a cover/bag to enable you to transport it to the hills or the beach easily and to stow it away for the winter. The explosion in sales of outdoor fireplaces and fire pits has resulted in more and more of us enjoying our outdoor space in the winter, so why not use the Uuni and the BBQ at the same time.

 

 

There is a new gas adaption being launched in the near future which will be compatible with this Uuni 3; there are many people who prefer the no-mess operation of gas, so this new addition will address this issue.
