This heritage Acacia Pizza peel is as close as it gets to perfection.
We can easily see why anybody would consider this marvelous wood model type the best pizza peel available.
Designed by Heritage, you are bound to get a great product.
Heritage products are derived from Sky Solutions, which try to provide consumers with solutions to day to day problems.
They provide products ranging from home and office to kitchen and dining.
Made entirely out of wood, the Heritage Acacia Wood model type is a beautiful item to have in your kitchen.
Not only does it do a great job, but it looks good while doing it. It is made of natural acacia wood.
Which, is wood originating from Australia, but that can also grow in Asia, Africa, and certain parts of the Americas.
More importantly, the material is very durable and smooth to the touch.
The dimensions of the product are 22.1 x 14.2 x 1.5 inches.
It is sized to make sure it fits all the baking ovens possible, Thanks to its thickness it will not warp and yet it is thin enough to pick up your pie without much hassle.
It has tapered edges allowing you to quickly slide on and off your pies.
Additionally, you can use it on other baked goods such as bread. Its handles are perfectly made to sit comfortably in your hands.
When cleaning your Acacia wood product type you want to make sure you use the following steps.
Firstly, wash your peel in warm water with soap.
Unlike most other peels(and baking stones for that matter), you do not have to worry about your peel keeping, and passing, a soapy taste to your dish.
Moreover, make sure you rinse constantly, but do not soak the peel. On the other hand, this product is not made to be washed in dishwater.
Finally, let it air dry once you are done.
Another point of note is that it is recommended that you use food-safe wood oil with this peel.
Beautiful design thanks to Acacia wood
Very smooth material
A bit heavier than other peels
The Aluminum Pizza Peel Kitchen Supply is without a doubt the best option available right now.
Being on Amazon’s #1 best seller for pizza peels, you are guaranteed a product that without a doubt will give you great results. It has an aluminum head and wooden handle that incredibly, were all manufactured in the US.
The idea with this model is to be able to place your dish further back than with a different model or by hand.
It comes in multiple sizes, particularly 12 inches, 12 inches wide, 14 inches wide, and 16 inches wide. Normally, peels are sprinkled with some form of cornmeal or flour, in order to allow the pizzas to slide right on and off.
However, for this particular peel, we suggest you do not use flour. It is best to use cornmeal at a minimum in order to have a smooth transfer every time.
The specific dimensions of this product type are 14 x 18 x 1.25 inches.
Additionally, it is silvered colored and weighs 2.85 pounds. Its aluminum head has rounded corners at 14 inches wide by 16 inches long and an 8 wooden handle.
This Aluminum model type is without a doubt the best pizza peel you can get your hands on.
It is big enough to allow you to handle not only pies, but other baked goods, and its durability will make sure you won’t have to replace this one for a long time.
Furthermore, the versatility of being able to pick between different sizes is key. And, not something that some of the other product types can offer.
Multiple length options
Wooden handle for comfortable grip
Consumers having issue with sticky paddle
Both of these product models can easily be considered(and are) the best pizza peel you can get.
It really depends on your particular needs at home, and what you see as a better fit for your kitchen and dish making style.
Nevertheless, if you are still unsure, then we suggest you go with the aluminum model type.The aluminum pizza peel gives you the most versatility in deciding what’s best for you.
The simple fact alone that you have multiple size options to choose from is already a bargain.
The wooden handle allows you to have a great grip.
While the Acacia model type is definitely better looking, if you are looking for performance, then this is a no brainer.
You cannot go wrong with either of these product models. So go ahead and get the best pizza peel possible for your kitchen.
