Make Your Own Wood-Fired Pizza Anywhere with the Uuni 3

Say hello to Uuni 3
Now that winter has sung its swan song and spring has finally sprung, its time to cast off that cabin fever, get outside, and cook something over an open fire.

Well, maybe not an open fire, but with fire nonetheless. Why? Because it’s primal, it’s manly, and it’s an excuse to get outside and burn things. Sure, you could grill a steak or some kebabs or smoke a rack of ribs, but why constrain yourself to the typical charcoal and fire-cooked fare when you can go one step further and create a hearty, yet delicate, wood-fired pizza? Instead of ordering in from Domino’s for your next game day or cook-out congregation, simply get yourself the Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven and watch as your friends and neighbors circle you like a pack of wolves closing in on their prey.

Unlike most wood-fired pizza ovens, this one isn’t built into a brick or stucco wall and is, instead, made from lightweight, insulated, brushed stainless steel and altogether weighs less than 30 pounds. That’s lighter than a toddler (and way easier to carry, not only because the Uuni 3 doesn’t squirm, but also beacause, if you order from Huckberry, you get a free travel bag). The Uuni3 also sports sturdy legs for increased stability, so you don’t have to worry about a sloppy drunk friend accidentally knocking over your pizza oven. Fueled by environmentally friendly (and ubiquitous) energy-dense wood pellets, the Uuni 3 reaches 932 degrees Fahrenheit in around 10 minutes and, once at that temperature,will cook a 13-inch pizza in as little as 60 seconds. That’s right, gents. You can get your very own wood-fired pizza, baked fresh and ready in as little as 11 minutes from start to finish. Now that’s what I call efficiency.

So, the all important questions–how much is this going to cost you? 10% less if you buy from Huckberry–for a grand total of only $300. That’s about a third the cost of constructing your own, at-home, wood-fired pizza oven.

Costco Kirkland products are actually items made by Duracell, Keurig, Reynolds, Starbucks, and other big names
You've been getting a deal on top-end products all along

There's something pretty astonishing that starts happening to everyone around the mid-30s mark. A pure, unadulterated love for Costco. Sure, there may have been a healthy appreciation in those younger years. A love for the $1.50 hot dog and soda deal, perhaps. An impromptu trip here or there with a parent whose card got you through the door. But somewhere between a first mortgage and a couple of kids, you probably started seeing the signs. They start subtly - a lingering gaze at the stacked sweatpants, tempting you with their fleecy softness. Asking the hair-netted sample lady if those mini artichoke quiches are organic. Before you know it, you have your own damned membership card, and all of your gym socks come in packs of 24. It's happened to the best of us. And with this adoration for Costco inevitably comes the love for all things Kirkland, the beloved Costco brand whose label is stuck on just about anything you can find in the enormous store, from batteries to rotisserie chickens.

But have you ever wondered where those Kirkland products come from? If you're anything like us, you may have just mindlessly assumed that there was some humungous Kirkland factory spewing out all of these products on some obscure, magical Nebraskan farm. Or, perhaps you're more rational than that and actually realized that many Kirkland-labeled products are not uniquely Costco's at all. Many of Costco's popular Kirkland products actually come from big brand-name companies that allow Costco to rebrand them for a fee. Perhaps even more surprising is that this isn't anything new or a process that's only used by Costco. Many retailers tap big-name brands to do this.

Wanting to look and feel your best is natural. Feeling this way allows you to live life to the fullest, nail a workout, focus on the job, and sleep better. Thanks to the internet and especially social media, there is no shortage of ideas on achieving longevity and enjoying life. One such way is consuming apple cider vinegar daily.

The pantry staple for salad dressings and marinades can purportedly help you lose weight, manage blood sugar, and improve heart health. Kim Kardashian called a raw version of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar a "miracle ingredient." No shame if you loved yourself a good Keeping Up With the Kardashians marathon. However, taking medical advice from a Kardashian isn't recommended, and not every social media fad is a good one.
Believe it or not, there is some science behind the purported benefits of apple cider. Still, you'll proceed cautiously, especially if you are living with certain conditions. Here's what to know about reported apple cider vinegar weight loss benefits and more.
