Napoli has come up with this new pizza oven that more or less looks similar to the Uuni 3 or the Roccbox Pizza Oven.
The amazing response on Amazon compelled me to write a review and honestly, I was myself interested to see if this pizza oven works as amazingly as it claims.
A pizza Oven that is pretty similar to Napoli Pizza oven is the Uuni 3, they look pretty similar to me but there are a few differences between the two and we would discuss all of that in this comparison post.
Design and construction
The Napoli Pizza oven looks pretty sturdy and comes in a nice all black look which to me was pretty smart as once you start cooking the pizzas, you are going to have a black oven.
So, starting with a pizza oven that is black really makes it easier as you are not going to miss the shiny surface of the pizza oven when it was new.
The pizza oven, even though black in color, looks really classy and elegant. The oven is pretty big enough and you can make pizzas along with other dishes in an iron cast skillet.
Overall, the Napoli Pizza Oven has done a pretty decent job when it comes to the design.
You have a chamber at the back in which you can burn wood and overall the entire pizza oven is pretty spacious, giving you the freedom to easily access any part of it while cooking.
The Napoli has a similar design as the Uuni but everything in the Napoli is slightly magnified in comparison to the Uuni 3.
Uuni 3 is a small portable pizza oven and it comes with a shiny stainless steel finish. This is obviously not going to last long as once you start cooking pizzas inside the oven, it is bound to go black.
The oven comes with a wood pellet burner at the back and a small opening where you can only cook pizzas.
In this aspect, I found the Napoli Pizza Oven much better as it has enough space to allow you to cook all the other dishes in an iron skillet.
Getting the Pizza Oven started…
Cooking in the Uuni 3 Pizza Oven is pretty easy as all you need to do is put the wood pellets in the burner at the back and once you are done with that you need to wait for about 15-25 minutes for the oven to reach the ideal temperature.
You can use wood, charcoal, instead of wood pellets. However, the burning chamber is quite small and wood pellets seem like a fit for the Uuni 3.
Now, they even have a gas burner for the Uuni 3 pizza oven and that has been a complete game-changer but otherwise, wood pellets are the best way to get the Uuni 3 pizza oven all heated up.
With the Napoli Pizza Oven, you can use wood sticks as well along with pellets giving you more options. Using wood is easier as well and once the oven gets all heated up to the right temperature you can start cooking pizzas.
The Napoli Pizza Oven does have an option of the gas burner as well, so you can go for that as well. Comparing both the pizza ovens, the Napoli Pizza Oven is better as you have the option to use wood as a fuel and not just wood pellets.
Both the pizza ovens are pretty amazing when it comes to cooking a pizza. The Uuni 3 takes around 60 seconds to cook a pizza when the oven has reached the right temperature.
You need to turn around the pizza halfway in order to ensure even cooking of the pizza. Another thing that you might want to look into is maintaining the temperature of the oven, so keep adding wood pellets every 15-20 minutes.
The Napoli Pizza Oven takes the same amount of time to cook pizzas as well, you can easily make a pizza in about 6-90 seconds and yes, you need to turn around the pizza for even cooking.
The only drawback with the Uuni 3 pizza oven is that you cannot cook other dishes with ease as the cooking space is quite small.
On the other hand, you can easily coo other dishes inside the Napoli Pizza Oven using an iron cast skillet. Meat, vegetables, bread, you can throw anything inside this pizza oven and get the desired results that you want to.
So, which one is better?
Now, finally comparing both the ovens and looking into their prices, I have to say that Napoli Pizza Oven is relatively better than the Uuni 3.
Now, if I were to compare Uuni Pro and Napoli Pizza Oven, the story would have been a little different because the Uuni Pro is a much larger Pizza Oven with better features.
But the Uuni 3 being pricier than the Napoli, I have to say that the Napoli Pizza Oven seems like a better investment. However, you might want to even consider this fact that the Napoli is a newer brand in comparison to Uuni.
If you are okay with that, then definitely the Napoli Pizza Oven is better than the Uuni 3. I think the Napoli is really spacious and it can help you explore wood-fired oven cooking.
There are a lot of fuel options for both the ovens but Napoli is much better when it comes to maintaining and regulating the temperature inside the pizza oven.
