NZ Made Pizza Baking Steel
Bake your pizzas on these steel baking slabs for a fantastic result. 6mm has been proven to be the best thickness for use. Slabs are laser cut and edges beveled smooth. Surface coated with Rice Bran Oil.
Metal conducts heat better than stone & it stores more heat per unit volume than stone. These are both key elements to creating a pizza that bakes up fast, crisp, light with good open crumb structure & dark charred edges.
Baking Steels are also FAR more durable and robust than pizza stones which are actually quite fragile and easy to crack.
After use, wash with warm soapy water to remove food debris & burnt oils. Dry, then give a light rub on all surfaces (inc edges) with rice bran oil. You can buy rice bran oil in aerosol cans which makes it easy to give the steel a quick spray over. This protects the slab from corrosion.
The oil left on forms a dark protective coating on the plate when at heat. Your baking steel doesn't stay shiny once you start baking with it.
300mm wide x 370mm length. Weight 5kg+

If you love baking your own Pizzas, this is one accessory that will make a significant difference. Insert into oven rack and preheat along with oven to 260C +

Q: I’ve seen a product in store but can’t find it on your website. How can I order it?
If there's something you are after that isn't yet available here on our website, contact us and we'll see what we can do. If it’s something we have in stock and can send by courier, we will do our very best to make it available on our website.
Q: Why is there a minimum order quantity for some products?
Some of our products – such as beer and grocery items – can be bought individually in store, but we can only courier them in set quantities (such as boxes, cases or cartons). It is often quite a lot cheaper to buy in these quantities, which is why we show both the individual and bulk prices on the product pages. It’s always nice to know what you’re saving!
