Launching Uuni 2 – Ground Breaking Wood-Fired Oven

Today we’re launching Uuni 2, the second generation to follow the ground breaking Uuni wood-fired oven. The launch represents the culmination of months of development work, experimentation and learning.

Here’s two of the key features we are most proud of.

1. Launching Uuni 2 wasn’t easy.  The original Uuni made wood-fired cooking available to anyone, anywhere. It brought the cost of entry down from thousands of dollars to just three hundred dollars. It was very well received, especially by the pizza enthusiasts who really wanted to move outdoors to make their creations. NOW the Uuni 2 is even easier to use. Uuni 2 is truly easy enough for anyone to use.

Much of this is thanks to moving away from using a battery powered fan pushing air in, to a chimney that creates draft that pulls air in to the oven. This sounds like a small difference but this has allowed the pellet hopper to be larger thus accommodating around 15-20 minutes worth of pellets. It also makes it easier to have a consistent, steady heat.

2. Uuni 2 is hotter than ever. We’re now cooking a pizza in 2 minutes instead of the previous 3-4 minutes. Between burns, you can now also control the temperature by adjusting the level of the hopper. You can have Uuni 2 burning with a small flame, or at it’s maximum of around 450°C (840°F). While you’ve always been able to cook a variety of things in Uuni, this new level of control really opens up the opportunities to cook foods for longer times, on a lower heat.


We really think you’ll love Uuni 2. Keep an eye on our website in the coming weeks for videos and tips on how to get the best out of Uuni.

Uuni, now at Selfridges

We’re delighted to say that Uuni’s first venture into a ‘bricks and mortar’ retail space has been a grand one indeed. Uunis are now on sale in Selfridges on Oxford Street in London. Selfridges which was voted ‘The World’s Best Department Store’ last year is a London landmark full of beautiful goods and attracts visitors from all over the world.  We’re really excited that the humble Uuni is now there too. Our pizza ovens are exclusively featured as a ‘revolution in pizza making’ as part of Selfridges ‘Make Your Own’ campaign. Happy days.

Pop-up pizza tasting

About ten days into our Kickstarter campaign and we’re already almost there! I know I keep saying it but it’s been nothing short of amazing seeing and hearing the response it’s received. So, to take things forward; I’m excited to announce that this Saturday, 1 December, we’re hosting a pop-up pizza tasting outside our Uuni ‘office’ on Manwood Road. This is the first time anyone from ‘wider public’ will have seen Uuni and what it’s capable of. I’ll probably make about six pizzas so if you want a slice don’t be late!


Time: 1 December, 14:00-14:45
Address: Manwood Road, London, SE4 1SA, RSVP on kristian@tapaninaho.com and I’ll send the house number.
Pizzas: pepperoni or mushroom

Hope to see you there!
