Uuni on TV and, ya know, in Space..

We’re used to our fair share of random requests here at Uuni HQ.. we’ve seen Uunis put on the back of bicycles and being included in all sorts of festivals and events. But at the end of last year things got even more crazy- we were contacted by 2 sets of TV producers both who wanted to include an Uuni wood-fired oven in their shows!

The first one was for a show hosted by the fabulous Phil Spencer -a new home makeover series called Home Hero. Phil and his makeover team were helping a lovely young family in Kent make the best out of their back garden. The Uuni was used as part of a fantastic new cooking, dining and entertaining area. It’s great to see this in action on a makeover show as Uuni won an award last year for leading  the outdoor lifestyle/ entertaining trend! You can check out the short programme online here! Thanks Phil!

The late, oh so cosmically great, David Bowie asks ‘Is there life on Mars?’ Well, there’s pizza that’s for sure… The second request was to have Kristian use an Uuni to demonstrate cooking on Mars in the future.. yes, I’m serious! We were to play a small part in the renowned, televised, Royal Institution Christmas Lectures!

This year space doctor Kevin Fong was presenting three lectures on the theme: How to Survive in Space. Uuni was to be used in the final episode- The Next Frontier. We were literally blown away to be part of this- to put it into perspective they were communicating with British astronaut Tim Peak live from the International Space Station as part of the show! Kevin and some esteemed science colleagues talked us through which crops they believe it would be possible to produce on Mars, and lo and behold- they included wheat, tomatoes and basil.. sounds like Space Pizza to us! Check out the full lecture here!

Uuni Shoot Day with Rikard

Last week we broke an Uuni HQ record… we shot 11 pizza recipes in one morning! It’s hard work making (and eating) all of those pizzas, but someone’s gotta do it. Musn’t grumble!

We were also lucky enough to be able to extend an invitation to our FAVOURITE photographer, Rikard Österlund. You can check out his website here.

He’s taken some fantastic photos, so nobody has to miss out on any of the action. We’ll be posting the first of these classic pizza recipes very shortly, so stay tuned.

Uuni Wins Best Product 2014 – East London Design Show

A massive thank you to the judges who voted our Uuni wood fired oven the Best Product 2014 at the East London Design Show this week!

This was our very first show and what do you know? ~We won Best Product 2014! We had a blast showing off the Uuni to the thousands of visitors in the Truman Brewery on London’s famous Brick Lane. We hope all the new Uuni owners and giftees will have a great time using theirs:)

Uuni holds design quality right up there alongside; ease of use, efficiency and affordability for all our products and it was truly an honour to be recognised in this way. THANKS!

 

What Have You Got to Prove?

Dough? Well, then you’re in luck!

Today we’re really happy to announce that we have a brand to new product to add to the Uuni range: Welcome to Uuni Stack.

Uuni Stack makes dough proving organised and easy. This multi-use product is also great for cooking prep, chopping and stylish storage. (The lid even doubles up as a chopping board!)

Like the original Uuni we’ve launched the project on Kickstarter. Check out the video, read more about it and get one here.

We’d be so grateful if you decide to BACK A STACK! Thanks so much!

Uuni 2 is now available in Australia for pre-order

Dear Australia,

Just over a year ago, we started shipping Uuni’s from warehouses in the USA and the United Kingdom. Today, we’re happy to announce that we’re about to start shipping from a warehouse in Australia, too.

Some 30 days ago, a shipment of Uuni’s were loaded in Helsinki, Finland, onboard a very large ship and they took to the high seas to begin their voyage to Australia. ETA is 3rd of November and as that date is fast approaching, we’re now opening up for pre-orders and our dedicated Australian Store.

Please use helloaustralia at checkout to receive AU$35 of your order. Valid until start of November or whilst stocks last!

While we don’t want to create panic and mayhem, it is worth noting that there’s limited stock available before Christmas. It really takes a long time to ship to Australia and we won’t be able to replenish stock until start of next year.

Couple of points:

We currently have the Uuni 2 and Uuni Peels available but are hoping to add pellets shortly. We’re just in the process of working out the logistics. You’ll be able to add these to your order at a later date, when available. Alternatively, suitable pellets are widely available in Australia.

Turns out, Australia is huge. Our warehouse is in Sydney and are super happy to be able to include free shipping within New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory. For other territories, we had to pull good estimates for how much shipping will cost*. Here’s our promise: if we find that your order ends up costing less to ship, we’ll refund you the difference. Prices already include GST and customs etc.

So,

Uuni’s are on their way, half way around the world. They’ll arrive in Sydney port at start of November and should be shipping to customers by middle of the month.

As you can imagine, we’re very excited about this and hope you are too!

Yours,

Kristian and the Uuni Team

*Problem is that rural areas are much more expensive than urban areas. This is probably pretty obvious to you if you live in Australia, but came as a bit of a surprise to us.

**What about New Zealand? We’re looking into this. Our first option for warehouse doesn’t do international shipping but we’re hoping to find one that does before they arrive. As soon as there’s news on this, we’ll definitely let you know!

Btw, I love NZ. We went there for a trip some five years ago and absolutely loved it. I can’t wait till we can ship to you guys too!
