Small diameter turning peels
« on: May 09, 2012, 09:02:44 PM »
The gentleman in this video is using a peel that looks like it is 6-7 inches in diameter.  Are these available for sale in the US?

What video? I use an 8" peel for all turning in the WFO. Took a while to get the hang of it, but now I can't imagine using anything else. I got mine over 10 years ago from Earthstone:

The one they show is stainless. Mine is carbon-steel - not stainless.

I have a perforated 7 3/4"  and a solid 9" - both from GI. I prefer the 7 3/4" in both size and the perforation. Like Bill, I can't imagine using anything else.

I make 13" pies.

Craig / others:

I cuurently have an FGM turning peel which is 7.1 inches.  I think I want one a little bigger - sometimes my 12 inch pies get too floppy when doming and hang down all around. I need a goldilocks peel - not too big, not too small - my oven is relatively small, around 27 inches across. 

If the GI 8 inch is really 7 3/4, that does not seem like a difference worth bothering with.  Does anyone know the exact size of the "9 inch" gi peel?

Thanks,
Mitch

That was the one I wanted to buy this past summer, but couldn't find a retailer that did not gouge on the shipping.

I saw member MightyPizzaOven using this short, round peel with wood handle that looked pretty handy.  Anyone know where to get one like this with the nice wood handle?

I contacted American Metal craft in regards to the small 8" turning peel. They told me that I would need to order throuh my local rep. the problem is; I am not a business. Are there any places that will sell to the general public?

sleepnbag,

There are a lot of online places that sell the American Metalcraft products. See, for example, http://www.instawares.com/Search.aspx?Ts=0&Ntt=Pizza+peel+American+Metalcraft&RNtt=Pizza+peel+American+Metalcraft

If you do a Google or similar search, you will find many other sources. You might start with the AM website to identify the particular peel that interests you and then do the search.
