Easily spin pizzas or slide them into and out of ovens with the GI Metal I-23F Azzurra 9'' perforated stainless steel small pizza peel. The Azzura line of pizza peels is lighter than the comparable peels yet offers incredible strength and durability, and this peel's perforation makes it even lighter! Its oval tubular handle with internal ribbing allows this peel to lift and carry heavily loaded pizzas from prep areas to the oven and back with stability and ease! This peel features high density polymer handle and sliding grip, a fitting in the handle can block the grip from sliding when peel is placed head down. Additionally, the head and handle joint has two metals overlaying one another and are secured by three large rivets. The riveted joint reduces vibration being transferred to the handle, making using this peel more comfortable. Stainless steel provides safety, strength, and reduced heat transmission, this peel has a low nickel content stainless steel head. The round head, milled at the front, provides a large surface area for ease of lifting the pizza, while ribbing in the middle and laterally creates rigidity when the peel is lifted ensuring it can hold even your heaviest pizza! This peel also has a perforated head to help flour release from the bottom of the pizza and decrease friction when sliding the peel under dough. Less flour on the dough when going into the oven means less burning of the crust and burnt flour to clean out of the oven. The edges of the holes are specifically designed to reduce the friction even when used with wetter dough, making this perforated peel a great addition to any kitchen!
