I used to work at a joint way back, and I would say back then the metal ones were not heavy duty enough to take the abuse doled out in a pizza place....may still be the case. I'm guessing they would be fine for home use though.
I'd test them out, weighing cost, maintenace, and feel. I also always found the wooden ones to be better balanced and more sturdy.
Think I'm going to go with wood. Now, I just did a quick search and found some at less than $10 and others at more than $40. Not sure why the $30 swing as they looked close in size. What will work or will any old peel do the trick? Found a $10 wooden one a Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Ha Ha. That is a good one. I will share this idea with my wife and then post her reaction/response. I'm sure all will get a chuckle.
You should see the locker shelf I made for my boys...or the false drawer I nailed to our kitchen cabinet. It would take me all weekend to make a peel and then I would have to go out and buy one anyway. I'm more of a computer geek than woodworker. :-B
take a look at the cheap one and see where the seam is and how well put together it is....My fear would be if it is cheap it will split.
Also obviously no need to get a long handled one.
wonder if it is this one. says handle is collapsable.
I bought the super peel. Works great.
