We received unbelievable customer service and my husband LOVES the sheet. Thank you so much all the way from Canada !
We have a wood-fired pizza oven outside in our backyard, but living in northeast PA, we only get to use it 6 months out of the year. It’s unfortunate since we love having pizza nights with family and friends on the weekends and everyone looks forward to them. I found out about Baking Steel and after reading the reviews, I was a bit skeptical. I decided to “take the plunge” and buy one to try it out. Well, I’m here to say, WOW how did I miss this all these years! I now get to enjoy homemade pizza 12 months out of the year with about 1/10th of the work of the WFO. No more stoking a fire for 4-hours to slowly get it up to cooking temperature. No more babysitting and turning the pies every 30 seconds. No more burned crust if it happens to stay in one spot in the oven for 10 seconds too long. No more cancelling parties because of the weather. The food prep portion is still the same, but no more having to run everything back-and-forth from the kitchen to the outdoor cooking area. I’m here to give the Baking Steel 5-stars and share our experiences. Our family has enjoyed it so much, we ordered 2 as gifts this past Christmas. Hopefully there are 2 more good reviews on the way. Thanks Baking Steel!!!!!
Bought for a friend
Better results than with ceramic pizza stone. And not fragile!
First of all, this steel weighs a ton! Lifting it out of the trays-and-cookie-sheets cupboard and into the stove, over the stove door, is a challenge. I immediately understood why leaving it in the oven was suggested and, for the time being, I am doing that. I purchased it to crisp up the bottom of pie crust and it took some trial and error to get it to work for that. This most recent pie had the lightly browned, lightly crisped bottom that I was looking for and, for those of you who might be interested, it required heating the steel in the oven at 500 degrees, putting the pie on the steel and baking at 500 degrees for 10 minutes, then reducing to 350 for however long it takes for a particular pie filling to cohere. All in all, I'm satisfied with the purchase although I wish it was a little easier to move in and out of the oven. Even finger holes would help.
It's never going to leave my oven.
So far it’s great. Our pizza was perfectly cooked. Easy to slide on and off. We used King Arthur pizza flour and that added to how easy this was to use. It’s heavy but can be stored in the box it came in. Great product!
Very happy with the increased size .
Changed the whole pizza game ....All for the best
Replaced the pizza stone in my pizza oven with the baking steel. It is really superior to the stone in every aspect.
I have two baking steels in my collection and about to add a third. These are the best for a powerful and evenly heated oven, and for making killer pizza of course.
Andris knows what he is doing
Is the very best part of kitchen now It is amazing how bakes pizzas not any different that a proffecional pizza store oven, you can clearly see as it bakes your dough will bubble up and the cheese will melt beautifully getting a amazing bottom and top crust!! Love all BakingSteel producs
Worked great highly recommend
The Steel Plus is the best thing I've bought for my kitchen in years. Pizza in our house has reach a new level. Crust bakes crispy, yet soft inside. The bottom has the dark spotting you would get from a gourmet pizza restaurant. It's like having a 900 degree brick oven in your own home. And with the Plus size, you can make pies large enough for the whole family. If you are on the fence about buying this or any Baking Steel, look no further. These Steel surfaces will turn your stove into a Italian Pizzeria.
Until now I used a baking stone. The difference between the stone and the steel is tremendous! My pizza cooked faster on the steel and the crust was better than a pizzeria. Very professional results. Buy one now!
I love my baking steel. It my 5th steel and I use them for my catering business. Thanks
Makes great flat bread, haven't tried with loaf yet. Looking forward to making a ciabatta or fougasse soon
I bought this as a birthday gift for my wife and she loves it!!! Shipping was painful and kept getting revised delivery dates. FedEx had it out for delivery and on a truck, but then showed it back in their facility. Wasn't delivered until the following afternoon. You guys should use UPS - NEVER have problems with them!!
super happy over here. been making homemade pizza for about 8 years. Baking steel is providing the EXACT kind of energy transfer I was looking for. This has turned my older oven in a rental home (that can barely manage 550 degrees) into an oven that's perfect for new york style at my own house. If you stick it right under the broiler, you can also get an environment that is similar to neapolitan pizza woodfire ovens. I used to use a 15 inch lodge cast iron pan and the serious eats cast iron pan broiler+stovetop method and although i got great results, it was heavy and difficult to move the hot pan back and forth out of the oven to place my dough and remove the cooked pizza. This baking steel is so easy to use (i just leave it in the oven!) and now I use a pizza peel to pull my pies in and out of the blazing hot oven. crispy bottom crust every time.
Great product well made
Better than a pizza stone. Better pizza=happy people.
Love the grill. The product is what I expected. I was extremely impressed by the efficiency in getting the product to my home. Less than 20$ including import fees to get it at my home within 3 days. This is an heavy and voluminous product. I cooked my first pizzas and... provided I have dough ready, I may never order a pizza from the pizzeria.
Excellent as it gets really hot. Pizza came out perfect.
What a piece of work keeps temps where I want them and damn it makes for an earth shattering crust in pizza and bread
The double size is a brilliant addition to your range, as cooking two pizzas at a time is often better than having to bake them one at a time, and the same goes for two crispy-bottomed pies as well! I give these as gifts and they are always a huge hit. I personally cannot live without mine and it lives in my oven...
Nice size, have smaller version great product!
If you are serious about you pizza or want to take your pizza to the next level... do yourself a favor and invest in one of these sheets!
This is my second purchase and it will be for a friend who is getting married. I love the one I bought for myself a few months ago, so I thought it will be a great wedding gift.
Still learning. So far it’s great. And the videos to make pizza dough from scratch are awesome. Happy with my purchase.
We ordered two of the baking steel plates to enhance our regular Friday evening pizza experience with our 7 kids here at the Aloha House of Hope in Virginia. These baking steel plates work great. The pizzas cook in about 5 minutes now and the crust turns out perfect. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to cook the perfect pizza at home.
Love this pizza steel. I also have a pizza stone and the steel produces a much nicer pizza.
I have the original sized baking steel and when i saw this latest version i knew i had to have it. it now has a permanent place in my oven. the original size has found a home on my Big Green Egg.
