Centered around sparking connections outdoors, UCO is introducing two new products in the outdoor firepit and grilling categories and refreshing its long-standing line of candle lanterns.

Renton, WA, USA – New to the UCO brand for 2023 are the Flatpack Smokeless Firepit & Grill and the Flatpack Nesting Grill Tools. Updated for 2023 is UCO’s ubiquitous line of Candle Lanterns, featuring fresh new colors, badging, and packaging. UCO’s new and updated products aim to enhance the experience around the flame. All these products pair well together, from the backyard to the backcountry.

The Flatpack Smokeless Firepit & Grill provides a smokeless experience by using double-wall construction to create super-heated air channels that exit at the top of the firebox wall, combusting the smoke more thoroughly than regular fireboxes. This super-heated air provides a more efficient “secondary burn,” resulting in a smokeless experience. The firebox is large enough to fit 16” cordwood but compact and foldable for easy transport. Use the firepit as a roomy grill with the included grill grate insert. It also comes with a sturdy nylon carrying case.

The Flatpack Nesting Grill Tools were designed from the ground up for anyone cooking outdoors. The nesting design keeps your grill tools compact and organized, whether at camp or on the road. UCO designed the tongs and turners’ lengths for performance and safety. They are constructed from durable stainless steel and feature an ergonomic handle made from UCO’s 100% Recover Recycled™ Polypropylene. Recover Recycled Polypropylene gives reclaimed and recycled polypropylene a second life by transforming post-consumer and post-industrial plastic waste into an FDA-Food Safe material.

UCO’s most iconic products – the Original, Candlelier, and Mini Candle Lanterns, will feature fresh, new colors and logo badging that appeal to a broader audience. From classic to fun and youthful, users will find their color in this new collection. Redesigned packaging will better highlight the ingenious workings of these analog light sources while making strides toward greater sustainability using less plastic and ink. UCO candle lanterns are perfect for backyard patios, remote campsites, or emergency preparedness kits.
