I didn't have one. A grid lifter, that is. I was planning to order one eventually, but welding gloves work just fine and I already have those. Today I hit the restaurant supply store for a few things I've been needing / wanting and in the area with the pizza supplies I looked down and saw this little bad boy labeled "deep dish pizza lifter" or some such. It makes a pretty darn good grid lifter and it cost me all of $2.50. I just thought I'd pass it along in case any of you are looking for a grid lifter and you have a good restaurant supply shop nearby.
