Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, the prices of blue steel pizza pans from Detroit Style Pizza Co. will rise dramatically, from $8.50 to $12.50 for the 8 x 10, and from $9.75 to $13.75 for the 10 x 14, or 47% and 41%, respectively(!).
And on top of all that, of course, is a double-digit shipping charge.
I don't know about others, but to me, that's an outrageous increase. Does anyone know of another source of these pans? In fact, does anyone know where Detroit Style Pizza Co. gets theirs? If one orders in sufficient quantity (which would make sense for someone opening a restaurant), perhaps one can order directly from the manufacturer. I also read that Jet's Pizza found a manufacturer, which may or may not be the same as Detroit Style Pizza Co.'s.
Also, I read that the original manufacturer, Dover, moved to Mexico, but does that mean that they no longer make the pans? My Googling efforts have been fruitless in finding contact info for their new Mexico location, but perhaps someone else would have more luck than I did.
