Peel This!

June 20, 2010

Review – Ironwood Gourmet Acacia Wood Pizza Peel 

I agonized over which peel to buy. Amazon sure carries a lot of them. I knew I wanted a wooden peel and this caught my eye right away. So did some others, due to attractive looks or attractive price. Finally I decided it was OK to spend a little bit more to get something that’s nice-looking. 

You can use it for bread or pizza. At 14 inches, it’s not going to hold a monster-size pizza dough.  Not a problem for me, but keep it in mind if you’re planning on baking huge pizzas. I prepare my pizza or bread dough, put some parchment paper on the peel, and slide the parchment and dough onto my Old Stone Oven Pizza Round. This method works great! It’s so easy to slide the dough from the peel to the hot stone using parchment paper. Using parchment also makes it easier to get the finished product out of the oven – but I digress. From proofing bread to baking to removing, it works great. 

It looks great, too! Wow, the figure and grain of the acacia wood is absolutely beautiful. It’s so attractive, I’ve hung it on a wall, and it doubles as artwork, and that makes a great value. Highly recommended (even if you’re not a baker and just want something foodie and good-looking to decorate your kitchen).
