Needs a bit of work!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Argon Tableware Pizza Peel - 31x36cm (12"x14") - 66cm (26") Overall
I bought this to go with the Andrew James 33cm Pizza stone I recently purchased from here. I'm having a bit of difficulty sliding the pizza onto the hot stone at the moment, seems a bit tricky, I'm not sure if it's just me or if there is a fault with the product but I'll keep playing around with it to see. If anyone reading this review has any tips or tricks they could pass onto me I would be most grateful.
The paddle is a sheet of aluminium 26" in diameter attached to a long wooden handle. It looks like a snow shovel, could also be used for hitting intruders over the head so has a multitude of uses. Seems fairly robust. I'm assuming it needs to be this big so you can safely use it in the oven but it's difficult to store unless you have a large kitchen. I keep mine in the boiler cupboard. I am happy I bought it, i just need to get used to it.

To help your pizza slide off peel onto stone sprinkle some medium/coarse semolina onto peel beforehand. It helps with the slide when you 'jerk' pizza off the peel. Don't worry about effecting your pizza base, most of it falls off once cooked. Any remaining improves it, making it crispier. It's an authentic method btw..:)

Thanks for your advice, Much appreciated. it actually worked for the first time this week. I don't think I was adding enough semolina before and I was a little bit afraid of using it so that's probably why it didn't work. I'm glad I bought it now. I guess eating all that extra pizza paid off!
