In today's midweek edition of the T3 Agenda, we give our outdoor pizza skills a dust off with the updated Uuni 3 wood fired oven, Casio unveils some new timepieces at Baselworld 2017 and more...
The Uuni 3 gives the wood-fired oven a 2017 makeover
Say hello to the Uuni 3 wood-fired oven, a new improved take on the original Uuni and its follow up, the Uuni S2. The shiny new and updated model boasts a range of design and technical modifications on the inside and out that make it perfect for some outdoor pizza creation.
The new Uuni 3 reaches up to 500°C (932°F) in just 10 minutes, and can cook authentic wood-fired pizza in an incredible 60 seconds - 1-2 minutes faster than the Uuni 2S. The patent-pending oven runs on wood pellets which are both energy-dense and inexpensive.
The new design has four feet instead of three for great stability, a Grate and Hopper for easier loading of wood and an extra insulation for a superior cooking experience.
The stainless steel oven also has a unique new Chimney Lock mechanism, making it easier than ever to pack up for outside use. You can even use the Uuni 3 with the forthcoming Uuni Gas Burner, should you want to add a little versatility to your setup.
The Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Oven will retail for £199 and will be available from mid-April 2017 (opens in new tab).

Casio unveils new Connected time sync tech range at Baselworld 2017
With the watch-focused wonder of Baselworld in full swing, industry veteran Casio has taken to the stage to announce an arm's worth of new timepieces. Some of these watches also feature a new unique bit of tech called Connected Engine 3-Way module, which delivers the world’s first 3-Way time sync system.
So what is Connected Engine 3-Way? It's basically Casio's new feature for the most accurate timekeeping you can get. It uses radio wave and GPS satellite time calibration signals as well as a connection to a smartphone to ensure your watch is always up-to-date, wherever you might and whatever the time of year.
The tech is being incorporated into the series' new G-Shock, Edifice and Pro Trek ranges, which includes the Edifice Chronograph EQB-800 (celebrating Casio’s partnership with the Scuderia Rosso Formula One team), the limited edition G-Shock MRG-G2000HT timepiece (produced in collaboration with Japanese Master Artisan Bihou Asano) and more.
