Aluminum Head with a Wooden Handle all Made in the USA
Transfer pizzas, delicate breads, pastries, into an oven where transferring them directly by hand could deform their delicate structure
Peels allow food to be placed further back in an oven than could normally be reached by the baker
Keep the baker's hands out of the hottest part of an oven, or prevent the baker from burning their hands on the hot baked goods
Prior to use, peels are often sprinkled with flour, cornmeal, or milled wheat bran, to allow baked goods to easily slide onto and off them
A pizza peel is a shovel-like tool used by bakers to slide loaves of bread, pizzas, pastries, and other baked goods into
and out of an oven. It is usually made of wood, with a flat carrying surface (like a shovel's blade) for holding the
baked good and a handle extending from one side of that surface. Alternatively, the carrying surface may be made of
sheet metal, which is attached to a wooden handle. The word presumably derives from the French pelle, which describes
both a peel and a shovel. There are peels of many sizes, with the length of the handle suited to the depth of the oven,
and the size of the carrying surface suited to the size of the food it is meant to carry (for instance, slightly larger
than the diameter of a pizza).
