Companies make some pretty outrageous claims in our industry. So, when Uuni claimed their pellet stove can cook a pizza in 60 seconds, it was worth investigating.

We will look at the Uuni and then our test results from cooking with pizza as well as salmon, steak, and mussels.

The Uuni 3 Pizza Oven



  • Insulated body and made of brushed stainless steel – excellent for maintaining heat efficiency
  • Wood Pellet Burner – enables better temperature control and consistent cooking
  • Up to 932°F heat – great for any food with short cooking time

Additional Information:

  • Uuni Impact Fund - For every Uuni 3 and bag of Uuni pellets sold, a tree is planted through Uuni's Sustainability project and partnership with the National Forest Foundation

The Uuni 3 Portable Pizza Oven


Amazing. It cooked all the food perfectly in under 10 minutes. The smoke imparted a nice flavor, which you won't get from a conventional oven.

The Uuni can reach up to 932 degrees for an ideal pizza. I was surprised because the Traeger Wood Pellet grills have a max temperature of 500 degrees and Traeger invented the pellet stove. 

The only downside is you must rotate your pizza or food frequently, and the pellets need to be refilled every 10-15 minutes. 

It's not an oven you can just set and leave. You must be present. Then again, you probably do the same on a grill if you are flipping meat on the grates.

You also have to preheat the pizza oven for roughly 20 minutes to reach at least 550 degrees temperature. 

According to our chef, Uuni makes a great pizza, but in about 3-4 minutes instead of the 60 seconds advertised. Then again, there is a bit of a learning curve while using this oven and we did not preheat to the full 932-degree specs.  

As a result, we are now a dealer of Uuni because we liked it so much.

For $299, you can now make a great pizza anytime you want.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
