Shopping Spree at Chef's Toys
« on: August 22, 2013, 09:00:15 PM »
I stopped by my local restaurant supply store, Chef's Toys, on the way home from work today. 

I picked up a larger 16" peel, 2 12" cutter pans, 1 14" cutter pan, a 14" screen, and a 16" screen, and a docker. 

I also drove up Palos Verdes to Bristol Farms and found a small bag of Caputo 00, although I was looking for KASL.   I'm not sure what to do with the Caputo yet as I don't make NP...yet.  :chef:   So far, I'm just playing with cracker and NY.

Chuck,

Are you sure that you have cutter pans? They look like aluminum serving trays to me. They are useful to have but cutter pans look like this: http://www.pizzatools.com/Cutter_Pans/30870/subgrouping.htm

As between raw aluminum and coated cutter pans, most members go with the coated cutter pans even with the higher prices.

You're right.  Misspoke.  I did make a cracker crust last night with the screen.  It darkens more evenly on the bottom but it also darkens faster on the botom than top.  Not really an improvement on the final crunch.

Hey, I'm a newbie.  I do have two 15" Axner stones, and a 16"x 1/4" steel.  I'm tossing around the idea of a Blackstone Pizza Oven (BPO).   

A little off topic, but I have a Bubba Keg, a gasser, and a old school steel off-set bbq.  I've been wanting one of those big beer fridges, and I tried to put the nice ladies below on retainer for servers at all my parties, but incredulously my wife said no-way!, she will handle it.  :'(
