Brand: Uuni. Designed in: UK.
In 2011, Finnish born Kristian Tapaninaho was living in London with his wife Darina and his baby son, Oskari. Kristian was a keen baker (his mum used to run a bakery back in Finland). He loved making pizzas and perfecting his dough and sauce recipes. His family and friends were delighted to taste his creations and they were, well, ok but Kristian felt like they were just 'good', not great. He knew this was because of the failings of his domestic oven (isn't it always!) - it didn't get hot enough but most importantly the pizzas made in it lacked that authentic ‘wood-fired taste’. He looked into buying a wood-fired oven for his garden, but found that the ovens on the market were very expensive and extremely bulky. Kristian thought... ‘there must be a small, affordable wood-fired pizza oven out there?’…there wasn't. So he set about designing one. After almost a year of prototyping and design work, the first Uuni pizza oven was born. Uuni was launched on Kickstarter with huge success, reaching its funding goal within two weeks and finishing at more than 220% and capturing the imagination of the global pizza community. Now there is an even better model, the Uuni 2S and we at Cuckooland are over the moon to bring this fabulous portable pizza oven to you!
