Super peel: what do you think?

Been reading about the Super Peel.....seems quite interesting. I have had plenty of challenges transferring the pizza and the Super Peel seems to be a good solution. Any thoughts based on experience would be really appreciated.

  • I have one. Seems to work by magic.

    I roll out the dough on the counter top with flour so it does not stick. Then pick it up with the SuperPeel using magic and slide it right off onto the stone on the egg.

    The only down side is that you need another peel to remove the pizza or just slide it off onto a pan. I bought a cheap but huge aluminum peel for removing the pizzas.

    It saves me so much aggravation I would not not make pizzas without it. Or else I would do deep dish which is not the same thing.

  • I make my pizza on parchment paper, then slide it onto an upside down cookie sheet.  Then, I slide it onto the stone.  I process the cooked pizza in reverse order.  Works great.  No peel to buy and store.

    I have one and I am loving it. I concur that ideally you need a second peel to remove the pizza so as not to have to remove the cloth each time around.

    I like mine, it works as advertised and isn't rocket science to use.

    I'm going to try to make one.  I'll post pics, some time in the near future.

  • Have not used one.  Stretch the dough out on a lightly floured granite counter.  Pick up the dough by hand and put it on well floured (rub it in good) wood pizza peel.  Put sauce and toppings on quickly.  Bump pizza peel to make sure dough is not stuck and still slides easily.  Slide onto pizza stone.  I was looking into buying other pizza peels until I started doing it this way.

    Hey Nola, that would be cool to see. I though can't draw a straight line with a ruler. I am going to have to buy mine.

    I love mine, it makes pizza parties so much easier and you don't have to worry to check the parchment roll to make sure you have enough. You can make pizzas ahead of time and no need to worry about sticking to anything. I use a metal peel to spin the dough halfway through and take it off the egg. You can even pickup multiple pizzas if you are making smaller ones.

  • Another vote in favor of the super peel.  I can add two beers to my prep and have no fear of messing up the pizza.  I use a metal peel to remove the pizza.  At theis very moment my dough is rising for pizza tonight.

  • Yes going to try a new Christmas present super peel this evening. Dough is being prepped now.
    I've used an aluminum peel for years and it works ok but picking up pizzas off the counter when you have several being built and prepped at the same time (kids and friends love personal sized pizzas), Problem was some kids would not get enough flour under the pizza then it was a mess to transfer to the peel to the egg. We tried parchment and it works but is still a PIA. Hoping the combo of the old aluminum peel to remove the pizzas and the new cloth covered super peel it will be like an assembly line!

    Pizza's were a huge success tonight. The egg was roaring and cooks were only a couple minutes each. Was easily able to keep up with the super peel picking up the assembled pizzas and transferring them to the stone, I used my old aluminum peel to pick up the cooked pizza and that worked great. My youngest even made a pizza in the shape of Patrick Star and it stayed exactly like she had it on the counter.

    My older daughter wanted a long skinny pizza and it picked it up just as easy. I had the colored LED's on when I took the pics. Makes for a cool looking egg while providing some light as well.
