Wooden pizzl peel maintenance
« on: May 18, 2010, 12:33:33 PM »

Just got my wooden pizza peel maintenance from Rainbow Catering the other day.

Before first use I did use a 1200 sandpaper on it to make it as smooth as a greased lightning :)

On my first attempt using it, I did use a tiny bit of courn flour on it, but found the pizza still sticking quite a bit to it.  Not as much as when I used the aluminium peel, but still enough that some of the olived went for a rollercoster ride into the oven.

I've read some people say put oil on it, but something tells me that's a real bad idea.

So, how do you treat your wooden peel ? Was it oiled already ?

I have a video showing you how to "prep" and use that wooden peel ... I think it's about 1/3 of the way through this one

I sand, like you did, then rub flour in hard with the palm of my hand too.
