Stellar Results Compared to Pizza Stone
When my pizza stone cracked I forked over the cash for the Baking Steel and it turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to me. WOW, what an improvement to the crust! Better than store bought, and so easy (especially if you use Jim Lahey's no knead dough recipe and make it 18 hours ahead, but ALL the dough recipes I've made have worked out beautifully on the Baking Steel.

Read the glowing review of the Baking Steel on Serious Eats (Google it). Everything they said was absolutely true.

Now instead of making pizza a few times a year at most I make it almost weekly.

I couldn't recommend the product more highly. It's also very easy to take care of and clean (and to dry in the oven after cleaning so it won't rust) -- in fact I leave it in the oven all the time now. Great product. Absolutely top notch. I no longer dream of a home pizza oven since I have the Baking Steel

Loving the Baking Steel
I purchased a Baking Steel from one of the Sur La Table stores. I tried the steel out with the same pizza recipe I have always used. WOW! My pizza came out better than ever before...even my husband noticed the difference. Great quality product. Would definitely recommend....

A pizza stone that won't break
After breaking my third pizza stone (I'm not clumsy, I've just been baking for many years) I saw the pizza steel and thought I give it a try. I am impressed at how well it does with pizza and bread. It also cleans up beautifully

heavyweight!
Can't believe the quality and weight on this. There is NO comparison to a pizza stone...the ease of cleanup and it looks brand new instead of stained. I will never use anything else..you get what you pay for and never was that so true. Also could not believe the speed in which I received it...will order again online from SurLaTable

Steel beats the stone
I'm impressed! The baking steel heats faster and is much easier to clean than my old pizza stone. The pizza crusts come out nice and crisp and the steel works great for making calzones or reheating pizza too. It is quite heavy, but I just store it in the oven so it's not an issue. It's so heavy duty I'm sure it will last forever

Baking steel
Huge step up from stone for making pizza. Last week we made 6 in a row and each was fast and crispy. Easy to care for and a real relief that it's US made so you don't have to worry about how the steel was sourced. Highly recommend.

At least you won't have to worry about it breaking
I have to be honest with you I really don't see any difference in the crispiness of my pizza. The one thing I am glad about is that it will never crack on me like a stone.
This item is a bit pricey

HOT MESS!
Purchased this steel in the San Francisco store after breaking 4 previous pizza stones.
We were so excited to be back to making our pizza's in our outdoor fireplace. However, when removing the pizza off of the steel the sauce and cheese ran off a bit. From that time on everything stuck (yes, we did use corn meal on top of the steel) . While the crust was baked well, cleanup was a mess. Getting the sauce and cheese off was impossible. Using a synthetic scrubber caused the finish to start coming off.
Now we have a pizza steel with one good side still available. Once we use that side the pizza's we make will only cost us a whopping $40 each to bake!

Makes The Best Dough In Both The Oven And BBQ
I had no idea that pizza stones came in steel and when I saw this, I was a skeptic. After reading the many positive reviews about this baking steel, I thought, what the heck, I would give it a try. I am so glad I did. This made all the difference in the quality and taste of my pizza crusts. Crunchy on the bottom and air pockets throughout the crust makes for a pizza that you will swear came out of a pizzeria oven. Take a chance on this purchase, you will not be sorry.

I enjoy making pizza at home. I was intrigued when this came out. After some research, I purchased one from SLT. My first pizza was fantastic! Be sure to use a peel.

My pizza stuck to the steel. I used flour (the package said flour or cornmeal and I didn't have cornmeal) what did I do wrong?

A shopper on Mar 14, 2014
Best Answer: Typically if it sticks, it just means you aren't using enough flour or cornmeal. Be sure you're applying it in a very liberal fashion

I purchased the pizza steel, but I haven't used it yet. Is it necessary to purchase a peel as well? thanks, I'm a novice @ pizzas
A shopper on Sep 18, 2013
Best Answer: Yes, I highly suggest a pizza peel. Not only is it the quickest and easiest way to transer your pizza to your preheated steel, but it is essential when removing it from your steel when your pizza is finished cooking. Because your pizza will cook fast and at high temperatures, you'll want to be able to remove it as quickly as possible

Since I did get tomato stains on the steel , can I use the opposite side of the steel. And what would you recommend to clean or just accept the few stains since it is steel.?
christina S on Aug 18, 2014
Best Answer: sure use the other side. I think a patina or few stains shows it has been used , in a good way. My research said a light sanding or steel wool will keep it shiny....but, you'll remove your seasoning.

Using parchment pape

Cooks Illustrated recommends using parchment paper to put a pizza onto a hot baking stone instead of having to buy a peel to do this. Can parchment be used on this hot baking steel safely?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2013
Best Answer: Parchment papers are generally not recommended for temperatures above 425 degrees, much too cool for pizza. Better not- you can use foil if you must

Our teenagers the pizza steel for the first time and had a disaster with sauce and cheese burning on due to a bad recipe for dough. How can I safely clean off the burnt mess or do I need to completely clean it? It has been scraped with a nylon scraper and nylon scrub pad, but there is still a burnt on layer.
Artyce Hedrick on Oct 11, 2014
Best Answer: I cleaned my baking steel with a nylon stiff bristle brush. It cleaned very well. When I preheated it for the next use there was no burn off smell. I love my steel, but still not sure if it's better than my stone.

Can it rust?

If food does not wipe away easily can it be soaked in water? This is steel, not stainless steel, which implies rust is possible

If this steel sheet is kept in the oven due to its weight, how would its presence effect the baking of other goods e.g. casseroles, pies, etc.?
Cindy M on Nov 2, 2014
Best Answer: I left mine inside and have not noticed an effect either way, perhaps because steel is such an excellent heat conductor. In any event, it might take a slightly longer time to reach the desired temperature; however, its presence may contribute to retain heat more efficiently.

Can oil be applied to the steel?

I dont like the taste and texture of cornmeal on the bottom of pizza so I always rubbed oil on the pizza stone before spreading out the dough. It never burned the crust and releasing the pizza with a spatula was easy. What would happen if I tried this method with the steel?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2014
Best Answer: The only time it's suggested to add oil to your baking steel is during seasoning. And even when you add oil during seasoning, you need to remove most of it before baking it into the steel

Where can I find the Instructions for the steel? I've misplaced mine and don't see a link anywhere on the SLT website.
A shopper on Jan 15, 2015
Best Answer: Move your oven rack to the second highest level and place steel on rack. Preheat oven to 500*F for 45 minutes to ensure steel is fully heated. Use a wood peel to prepare, insert and remove food. The high heat will damage ordinary spatulas and metal will scratch the steel. Lightly dust pizza peel with flour, cornmeal, or breadcrumbs to prevent sticking. Place dough on peel and add toppings. Use a quick jerking movement to slide pizza onto steel. Bake 7 - 9 minutes. Use peel to remove pizza to a cutting surface. Do not cut directly on steel. Bake frozen pizza according to package directions but baking time may be shorter. Bread baking times may be shorter than called for in recipe. After oven is off, allow steel to cool one hour before removing with oven mitts. For best results, clean with a stiff nylon brush and warm water. Towel dry immediately; do not let air dry as the steel may rust.

Has anyone used it as a griddle on your stove?

The description says that you can use it as a griddle, but has anyone tried to make pancakes, for example
A shopper on Apr 21, 2014
Best Answer: Although I haven't personally used it as a griddle, I've read a lot positive info on it. Because it reacts quickly to changes in temperature, you're likely too cook your pancakes evenly, but not so likely to over cook them. Also, this baking steel is rimless, so if you make pancakes, you'll want to use a thicker batter

Is the baking steel coated? Does it need to be seasoned to keep it from rusting?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2014
Best Answer: The steel comes pre-seasoned as best as I can tell, and care instructions do come with it. They say when you wash it to towel dry, allowing it to air dry may cause it to rust. So far we've been using our for 6+ months and there is no sign of rust anywhere on it and we have not needed to season it again.

I hand washed my pizza steel as directed. I'm not sure what happened, but after just one use it got completely discolored and rusty. I tried removing the rust with steel wool but it just got worse. What can I use to get it rust free and shiny again?
Kristin C on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: I don't think you are suppose to use water to clean the baking steel. It is natural for it to discolor because of the heat from the oven or grill. I usually wipe mine off with a paper towel. For stubborn burnt on food or in your case rust you can use a pumice stone.
