This was a gift for a chef and was absolutely thrilled with it! He’s hard to buy for and he was over the moon with this product.
The baking steel has upped my bread game significantly as well as reduced my cleaning on baking day, no need for bread pans anymore for several types of bread. You cannot match the color and texture I’m getting on my breads now with any other tool! The baking steel is a must have and fits perfectly in the Anova Steam Oven!
Trying to get a nice crispy crust on cauliflower pizza. Got a burnt bottom and a pile of mush. After scraping it all off the steel, it tasted wonderful but I wouldn't call it pizza. JWB.
Gave a loaf to a friends friend. Just got this as a surprise
This thing makes pizzas so much easier and better than a cast iron pan in my ANOVA oven. Love it!
This pizza steel is great!
The perfect accessory for my recently-acquired Anova oven. This baking steel is high quality and gets blazingly hot! I puts the traditional pizza stone to shame!
A perfect fit for my Above oven, and works like a charm. Wish I'd waited a week to buy it though, since the sale would have saved me $20.
Just baked for first time. Sourdough boule. Crust was good but not enough spring. Wife loved it. I am a perfectionist so will do things a little different. No complaints about steel.
Its truly amazing at how much better it makes the bread!
Can’t wait to make home made pizzas from scratch! Works like a charm for frozen!
Great tool in any cooks arsenal.
Amazing product, hate USPS for delivery, took over a month to arrive, but the product is so impressive.
This steel tray is a real “heavyweight” in my kitchen..the pizza coming off of it is delicious; crispy on the bottom and chewy on the crust. Perfection!
Up your pizza game. I’ve long been using aged dough and quality ingredients (whole milk cheese!) but the Baking Steel gives results that speak for themself. Whether Neopolitan or American pizza or unique dishes like Flammkuchen - the crunch and color are improved! Can’t wait to try other foods as well.
I like the quality of the steel but it is heavy.. Would like to see one side of the pan have a grove in it for any liquid..
Solid and holds heat as advertised. Perfect for the Anova Precision Oven.
These steels are amazing! Homemade pizza has always been "meh". And the dough was not the problem (I am a good baker). We tried all the hacks to avoid having a stone/steel, with no satisfying improvements. Now they come out perfect, every single time. The company messed up our order + had all sorts of supply chain issues, so the steel was shipped many weeks later. Even with this, the human relationship was so good, that it LARGELY compensate for the issues. They really went above and beyond to make us happy. Recommend 100%.
This steel fits the Anova Precision Oven great. I have made already made lots of baguettes with it. I didn’t realize I could use it as a griddle on my stove and look forward to trying that out.
I've made pizza twice in the past week. This is a heavy steel. I've been very happy with the results!
I’m still learning how bake bread - the Anova cooking is way off. I know how to fix it by lowering the cooking temperature after heating the steel.
Had this steel for the APO only a few weeks but love the thing. Used for pizza baking on multiple occasions and crusty bread bakes. Pizza crust is out of this world good, crunchy, great chew and nicely browned. No more dutch oven bread bakes for me. With the APO and this steel, easier baking in my book. Will be running the wheels off this steel in the coming months. Lots of new bakes I want to explore and the steel will encourage success. Sure happy I made the purchase and it delivers great results. Thanks for the fantastic product.
I have been making pizza in the oven, on the grill and in a Green Egg for over 20 years. I followed the directions exactly and the pizza came out with the best ever crust . Can’t believe it took this long to find the perfect pizza stone/steel!
The steel holds and transfers heat to my dough way better and faster than my old stone. Since I started using my steel my bread has "taken the next step". I recommend it to anyone who can afford it and is serious about baking bread at home that looks like it came from a legit bakery.
I received my steel a couple of weeks ago and so far have been using it to make pizzas. I still need to experiment and learn. However, I'm VERY pleased with the results so far. I would just like to add one significant detail that was not mentioned in any of the reviews I read before buying it: the steel is very heavy (6 kgs/ 13 lbs) and since it's flat, especially when it's HOT, it's not easy to handle that kind of weight. I'm glad I found a place to store it where I don't have to bend down or pull/push it in/out.
It fits perfectly, thank you Anova and thanks to Baking Steel for partnering to make it the right size. ♥️
Great experience. The company shipped the baking steel the day after I ordered it and it arrived within days (and during the Christmas holiday season, no less!). The baking steel is working well, and is perfect for my Anova Precision Oven.
Pretty decent oven spring on no-knead bread in the hands of a novice bread baker in the Anova Precision Oven with the Baking Steel.
This Baking Steel is great. Fits the Anova Precision Oven perfectly. I'm baking some fantastic bread.
pizza check English muffins check focaccia check Perfectly happy with this product
Fits the oven PERFECTLY!
Just received my baking steel, pizza came out amazing - Mushroom, sausage, basil. I’ve been doing pizza’s in the regular oven for years but this, ( the baking steel), is a game changer.
it fits the oven perfectly, works great so far
Very satisfied. Works exactly as described. Great customer service after inquiring about shipping delay.
Using the baking steel in my Anova Precision Oven is so handy when baking breads or pizzas. While the Anova has great temperature control I do think the baking steel provides additional temperature stability when opening and closing the oven door. I’m glad to be using the steel. It hardly leaves the oven.
This Baking Steel works wonders with pizza and bread. Although pricey, there is a good video series of recipes by the founder, Andris Lagsdin. It also fits perfectly in my Anova Precision Oven. I'm looking forward to using it time and time again.
Very happy with my purchase. I got my steel plate like what - couple weeks ago? I have already baked just about 30 pizzas on it. Love it. You heat it up for an hour and then you just keep them rolling. I am using it with my anova precision oven and everyone tells me these are the best pizzas they have tried. Just about 3 mins on the clock and your pizza is ready. Super cool!
Baked off 30 baguettes, a dozen boules, batards, and rolls, before reviewing. This steel does a perfect job. It fits the Anova oven precisely. I was using an upturned baking sheet and parchment, and the bread bottoms were unable to brown properly. Using the steel fires off the bottom as well as the top and the breads are prizewinning. Oven spring, ear formation, color control all 100%. The steel surface has a space age pebbly texture with some sort of permanent release slickness, and bakes just as well with or without parchment. I load with an aluminum 14x16 pizza peel which exactly fits. The steel does not disturb airflow or steam flow. It does not rust or discolor more than slight darkening despite 100% steam. Zero issues, solid customer service, highly recommended.
I LOVE the baking steel. In the past, the ANova Precision Oven baked breads were never as crusty as using the Dutch oven in a conventional oven. The baking steel fixed that. The tarts and pies brown evenly without the top being burnt and the bottom being soggy. The baking steel regulates the temperature of the APO, and it doesn’t drop as fast when I open the door to load the pans. The temperature stays even longer so the preheat temperature doesn’t have to be much higher than the baking temperature.
Works as advertised. Easy to clean and re-prime. Excellent baking results.
Fits perfect. Great results.
I have decades of experience with thick and thin, round and rectangular baking stones. They did a fine job of helping to produce well-risen baking with a crisp crust. THEY DID NOT fit my ANOVA combi oven. Enter this steel product. The texture of the surface is much like the ceramic baking stones I have used. This sheet stores heat! THE DIFFERENCE: much more even heat in the smaller volume ANOVA Precision Oven. The difference and replicability are startling!
This was the best addition to the Anova Precision Oven! I've made perfect pizzas every time! I've used pizza stones in our built in oven and never had success like this. I even sold my outdoor wood fired pizza oven due to the incredible ease and quality of the pizzas I've been getting with the baking steel in the AOP. A must buy for anyone with the Anova oven.
Using the 72 hour pizza dough recipe, our pizza is better than many pizzeria’s we’ve tried. We love our Baking Steel!
I expected something good, but instead I received something Great !! Very happy with the quality of the product and the results that I get every-time that I use it!! Thank you

Surface well finished with Sand Blasting, but the edges could have been improve with chamfers, too sharp for handling. Packing was properly done, but saw a slight dent on one of the edges (not a big concern), I believe it was inflicted before packing, since the packing was not damaged.
Perfect for my Anova Precision oven for pizza and bread!
We love our Baking Steel! It's the perfect size for the Anova Precision Oven but would be a great tool for use with any oven. Pizza crust comes out crispy and golden, breads come out perfectly cooked. We are absolutely delighted with this purchase.
This thing makes the best pizza ever!!

Breads actually bake more quickly. Muffins have a bake shop quality. Great purchase and haven’t even made pizza yet.
