I haven't had a chance to use it yet but it seems similar to a peel I've used before. I was really pleased by the fact that it arrived a day earlier than the earliest ETA. It was packaged just on a board rather than having to pay extra amounts of money for a massive, heavy box which is nice and I think it's priced very reasonably. Some other reviews have said that the handle is also aluminium but it's not, it's wood. The only problem is that the handle isn't quite as long as it looked in the picture and the peel is a different shape, making me think that the picture is a completely random peel that just looks vaguely similar to the one that actually arrived.
