Uuni 2 – Shipping Update for 9th July

We’re rolling. Yes!

Yesterday, the very first Uuni 2’s left the manufacturers and were sent to our customers in Finland. Also, some 128 Uuni’s are on their way to the UK for arrival at the fulfilment centre early next week. We’re in now working with them to queue up the orders and make sure as soon as they arrive, they’re sent out.

And finally, a batch to the US will be loaded on an airplane next week. Air freight will only take a few days from Finland to the warehouse in Philly – as with UK, we’ll get the fulfilment company to be ready to send these out as soon as they arrive.

Not long now, we’re almost there!

Uuni 2 Shipping Update

Dear Uuni Community,

We’ve again received a message last night from the manufacturers that the first shipment will be another 7 days late. This is due to metal supply issues higher up in the supply chain.

This is extremely frustrating to us as we’ve been working on this for the past 8 months and want nothing more than for people to get to use it. But it is of course more frustrating to all you who’ve already ordered one. I’m so sorry for the delays. If you’d at this stage wish to cancel your order rather than wait, perhaps just to order at a later date, just email me on kristian@uuni.net with your order number or reply to your order confirmation and I’ll get it sorted as soon as.

While this is mostly out of our hands, here’s what we’re doing to minimise the delivery times as much as we can:

  1. EU (and Australian) stock will ship from Finland to our warehouse next Friday (4th July), shipping takes 5-7 days and we’ve queued up the warehouse so that as soon as they arrive there, they’ll go out.
  2. If the EU stock misses next Fridays ship from Finland, we’ll take the hit and start shipping them directly from Finland to customers in EU. I’m in Finland from 5th July to make sure this happens as fast as possible.
  3. For US/Canada orders, we’ve made the decision to air freight them from Finland to the US warehouse rather than wait for sea freight to get across. It’s not a cheap option by no means, but it cuts the freight time from 4 weeks to just 5 days. It’s definitely worth it.

Everybody who ordered an Uuni 2 before it started shipping from the warehouses, will still receive an extra pizza peel as a small token of gratitude and for your patience. We’ll also send a discount code you can use yourself or pass on to a friend who’d love to get an Uuni themselves.

I can’t tell you how sorry we are that’s it’s taken longer than expected to get shipping these. Uuni 2 is really an amazing product and so much fun to use, we absolutely think it’s worth the wait.

 

Yours truly,

Kristian

A REVOLUTIONARY PRODUCT OPENS UP WOOD-FIRED COOKING TO ALL

A brand new wood-fired oven hits the market today! The original Uuni wood-fired oven impressed cooking enthusiasts around the world when it launched with great success on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter back in November 2012. The small, fast and affordable oven was created by the London-based Finnish designer Kristian Tapaninaho in a response to a gap in the market. Today sees the launch of Uuni 2, a shiny new improved model that focuses on ease of use. “Uuni 2 enables everyone to impress their family and friends by making their own pizzas and other delicious wood-fired cuisine.” says the designer.
Uuni is smaller than a carry-on suitcase but nevertheless it’s impact has been significant. It boasts customers around the world, has been featured in global design and lifestyle publications and is stocked by prestigious retailers such as Selfridges.
Having fostered a growing community of wood-fired cooking Uuni enthusiasts, Kristian wanted to develop a new version of the oven to ensure that anyone could make brilliant food in their own back garden, yard or even on their balcony. Uuni 2 is made out of durable stainless steel and is manufactured in Finland. It reaches temperatures of 450°C (840°F) and allowing you to cook a pizza in only 2 minutes. This second generation Uuni is adjustable offering users the opportunity to cook dishes that require lower temperatures and slower cooking times too.
Designer and founder, Kristian Tapaninaho says:
“We’re really proud of Uuni 2, it’s even more simple to use than the first model and because of the larger pellet hooper it can take more wood pellets at one time meaning that users can just focus fully on cooking rather than fuelling the fire. Uuni truly is a wood-fired revolution, our price point has always championed accessibility. By creating Uuni we brought the entry point of owning your own wood-fired oven way down and we’re proud to announce that Uuni 2 will cost even less than the first one at only $299.”

Uuni 2

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. Uuni is now even easier to use. 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. 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.
