Already have the original Baking Steel for pizza. Got this for smash burgers outside on grill. The burgers turned out great.
This small Baking Steel is Great! It fits perfectly in our small Breville oven. When heated for about 30 minutes at maximum temperature before starting to cook it produces a perfect pizza in a very short time. We just bought it so haven't had a chance to try anything else yet.
I use a small oven (delonghi midi) which can accommodate a steel ~29x29 cm max. I was so glad that I found this. It seemed a bit pricey compared to my current baking stone, but then it is well worth it - I don't need to worry about it breaking, and can wash it however I like. The result is very noticeable when I bake pizza! Nowadays I use it to bake sourdough. I would recommend this to everyone. Baking Steel's customer service is great and responses very quickly.
I don't find the griddle function very useful since it's so small, but it's great for baking pizza in my Cuisinart convection toaster oven. Worth it for that use, though I'd appreciate a lower cost option that's just the baking steel.
This is my second purchase (I already own the larger pizza steel). The size of this is perfect for searing steaks on the stove top, but also fits inside most toaster ovens and grills.

Haven't had a chance to use it yet
In the short time I've had the baking steel I've hosted a pizza party where I was able to churn out a pizza per guest in about 4 minutes of cooking for white dough and 6 for wheat. While it was cooking I was adding the toppings to the next pizza. It's also been a great griddle, I've made chicken kebabs and smash burgers on it. Cleaning it is pretty easy, and I just leave it on the oven rack to store it. The only complaint I have is that it can be difficult to get my fingers under it to pick it up off the stovetop and I worry about sliding it and damaging the glass surface.
Perfect for making English Muffins
It was a gift for my daughter and she loves it
Got this as a gift for my boyfriend, and he loves it! Only wanted to flag that upon arrival, the edges had not been nicely de-burred, and therefore were pretty rough. 10 minutes with a file was enough to smooth them out though, and the product itself has been great.
Thought it needed more seasoning. My first cook was smashed burgers, but used lean brisket. Second cook with additional oil much better. Suspect continued improvement.
I am very happy with the items I have purchased. However, I now have a glass cooktop and have to worry about scratching. I would very much would like you to make round plates that would fit on each of the cook spaces. Say - 6-8-and 9" diameter.
