Stop whatever you’re doing because you’re about to make the best pizza of your life and in under 60 seconds – thanks to the geniuses at Ooni. I’ve bought one, use it, love it and can’t get enough. Read through some of my favorite things along with my research into the whole promo code saga.
MY TAKE ON OONI
We live in a world (personally) where there is no such thing as too much pizza and, well, I’m good with that. You know I’m always reviewing some of the coolest products and companies out there (I’ve recently talked about my obsession with Goldbelly, Drizly booze delivery, and of course my YETI cooler) that everyone is buzzing about, so I wanted to let you know about my latest obsession; Ooni.
If you’re new to them, don’t worry, I’ll walk you through it – but overall they’re basically the best outdoor pizza maker of all time. And now it’s affordable (even if without a coupon – but more on that below). Ready to up your pizza game?
We’re all spending more and more time outdoors these days and nothing really ups the fun factor quite like inviting some friends over to hang out in your yard, have some drinks, and some good. This is where the Ooni pizza oven comes into play.
I wanted to gift my sister and her family with something different that the whole family would enjoy and could keep them outside a bit. Now they already have everything for their yard. I’m talking all the YETI merch, two versions of Corn Hole, a newly built pergola, the on-trend Solo Stove fire pit, and a 45 foot long slip-and-slide. Yeah, it’s a lot. So I added the outdoor pizza oven to their outside swag and it’s been a total game-changer.
I’ve read a ton of reviews on this and while everyone seemed to really love it, no one really loved the price. It can be a bit steep, but since I’m not a pro pizza maker I didn’t want to gift them a super high-end one (not yet at least). So I went with their “Frya” wood pellet pizza oven. I got mine for just under $300 and, at last look, it still seems like that’s the price.
Here’s what my sister and her fam loved about it:
- It was surprisingly not as heavy as they thought it would be – about 20 lbs.
- It got super hot, super fast – about 12-15 minutes.
- It cooked their pizza super (like, super) fast – 60 seconds!
- It didn’t take up too much room.
They didn’t love they couldn’t keep it outside like their grill but, hey, what are you gonna do? After it cools off they just bring it in and store it away in their basement until next use. Although – if there isn’t rain on the horizon they keep it out overnight sometimes. Shhh don’t tell anyone.
Since I’ve written this I wanted to update it with some additional info that may be helpful. First off, they’ve basically gone viral on TikTok (go figure) with customers Ooni TikTok videos racking up more than 50 million views. It’s also a great place to see some recipes in action and some pizza-making tips and tricks from regular folks. If you’re looking for pizza inspiration – basically drool-worthy pics of pizza, check out Ooni’s Insta for the latest and great ideas. Plus, they have a bunch of fun giveaways and offers there!
So whether you’re looking for a totally unique gift for someone else or are ready to try your hand at basically pro pizza making, I def recommend giving Ooni a try. You’ll love it!OONI’S SALES, DEALS & PROMO CODE POLICY
Since I’ve listed these pizza ovens in so many of my gift guides, I’ll regularly get emails asking if I had a coupon to share with them. Personally, I don’t! So I wanted to tackle the whole discount code thing here.
I’ve researched a ton of sites, including their own, and overall I came up short. So basically, Ooni does allow you to enter in an approved coupon code or promo on their site when you check out. The catch? It’s gotta come from them. I’ve seen them on some other sites, but were confused by them and, honestly, they didn’t look real. I checked them anyway and, well, no dice.
I always recommend to shop direct and always (like, always) sign up for their emails because they’ll send promotions directly to you when they release them. I did find some ways to bundle and save around 10%, but that’s not always active. Overall I’ve seen:
- Free shipping when you spend over $35
- Free 3 year warranty
- Get 10% off bundles items
Offers can alway pop up from time to time, so stay on top of everything by checking them out here.
When it comes to major sales, Ooni has actually increased the amount they have. They used to kind of be like YETI where there’s basically never a sale, but last year they ended up having a killer Black Friday sale where you could get an extra 20% off sitewide. And this is why I always recommend to follow them on social because they even announced their big yearly sale direct on Facebook where everything was 20% off right to midnight on Cyber Monday. Now, you can bundle some items together, at times, and save up to 10% – which can really help overall. You’ll have to check to see which bundles are currently available. Check that out right here!
Check out some of the best from Ooni, including their top selling pizza ovens, accessories, bundled sales, and even the deal with their coupons (so far) in October 2022!
