When I started on the Uuni pizza oven review I did not realize how popular cooking you own pizza outdoor has become.
The Uuni website surprised me because it is actually called Ooni.com and I thought I landed on the wrong site at first.
3 Types of Uuni Pizza Ovens
At first glance, it is a little hard to figure out the Uuni models, but there are 3 pizza ovens and only the Uuni 3 comes in 2 versions and bundles, but more about that later. The Main Uuni Pizza ovens are:
- Ooni Koda
- Uuni 3
- Ooni pro
The Ooni Koda is the most affordable and in my opinion only one that performs this well in this price range.
The Uuni 3 can be purchased with a few bundles that can including wood fired, gas fired or a combination of both. With optional accessories like a Pizza peel, cover, pellets and more.
I will write more about all the options later.
In a hurry? have a look at all the Uuni pizza ovens here at their website and see if there is one that you like!
Lets have a look at all the different models first and see what the differences are to help you decide what models fits your needs the best.
The Ooni Koda is a gas powered oven that gets really hot. There is no assembly required and it works right out of the box.
All you have to do is flip the legs that are folded under the unit, attach it to a propane gas tank, place the pizza stone and fire it up.
According the Ooni website it takes 60 seconds to bake a perfect pizza with the Koda.
Pre heating takes about 15 minutes and than you can use the dial to set the temperature for fish, vegetables, steak and pizza.
The oven can reach temperatures up to 930 degrees Fahrenheit and that is about 500 degrees ceclius.
The price is just under $200 dollar and you will probably not find any other outdoor oven with all these options for that price.
Uuni 3 Pizza Oven
The Uuni 3 is probably the best seller from Ooni and I can see why that is.
This oven is able to cook restaurant style pizza by using wood pellets. Because there is no gas burner it is even priced lower than the Koda with a price just around $275
Besides just the oven there are 2 more options available and Ooni calls them bundles. The bundles are:
Uuni 3 wood fired bundle
This option includes the Uuni 3 wood fired pizza oven and come with the extra:
- Uuni pizza peel
- Uuni 3 cover and bag
- Sizzler cast iron pan
- 10 kg pellets (22 pounds)
This bundle option will cost you $100 dollar more, but considering all the extra’s I think it is a good deal.
Uuni 3 including gas burner bundle
This bundle gives you the option to choose between wood fired or gas fired for your pizza oven. The gas burner can also be bought separately as an accessory, but this is a better option and will save you some money.
This will make the bundle have the same items as the wood-fired bundle + the Uuni gas conversion.
Ooni Pro Outdoor Oven
In this what I can almost call Uuni pro pizza oven review you can read all about this outdoor oven.
The Ooni pro comes with several options and is very versatile in use. Choose between wood or charcoal to fire it up and watch it get up to temperature in no time.
This outdoor oven is with its 16 inch a little bigger than the other 13 inch models.
Besides the option to burn wood or charcoal you can by as an extra option the pellet burner or gas burner to make it even more options available to use this outdoor oven.
Compared to the Uuni Koda or Uuni 3 this pro comes with a door that has a thermometer build in it. There are more parts in the box to make it to a real outdoor oven that can be used for many types of cooking an baking.
- Stone baking
- Pizza door
More Uuni pizza oven features
All ovens are insulated with ceramic fiber to keep the temperature as steady as possible. They also come with a Cordierite stone that will retain the heat very well.
Cast Iron Sizzler pan
If you like to cook meat, fish or vegetable in your Uuni oven you should have a look at the Sizzle pan.
This cast iron oval pan measures 9.7 x 5.6 x 1 inch and weighs 5.7 pounds. This shows the heavy duty quality. It also comes with a cast iron handle and a wooden base to set it on.
You can also look at our PizzaCraft pizza stone review if you like to see some other options.
Or Maybe you have a Weber Kettle and like to make some pizza with the Kettle pizza kit I reviewed.
