"The Baking Steel" Group Buy

For those of you that do not know, we are trying to get a group buy on "The Baking Steel." I do not have set prices yet on this, however, Andris the owner of the company should be getting me pricing tomorrow. So far we have about 10 interested, anyone else?

    Will it be a batch of all the same size? Or can I get in with ones that will fit a Med. Egg (about 11")? I could see buying 2 in that case.

    From what I understand not all will need to be the same size. Andris just wants the orders at once so he make efficient use of the steel he is dealing with.

    Yep, no issues I think.

    Will he do the 1/2 inch in the custom sizing? Or is this just the 1/4 inch?

  • fletcherfamfletcherfam Posts: 877
    @eggcelsior, most of us are ordering the 1/4" size, however, I know one guy is doing the 1/2"

    I'd like a round 1/4" one for my LBGE.

    Where are all these sizes coming from? I only see one size/2 thicknesses on their site. Are they doing custom sizes for us? Round or rectangle?

    I'm interested for my Large.

  • fletcherfamfletcherfam Posts: 877
    Yes they are doing custom sizes for us. Custom meaning round, 1/4" or 1/2" thick, and probably 16", 15" 14" or 12". I need to work out the specifics with him.

    I would really be interested but my wife will kill me if I buy any more large round accessories to stuff under her kitchen counter! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Buy a large round accessory that fits around her ring finger, wrist, or neck and you'll be all set to buy to your heart's content.

    Im just not sure with the shipping to canada
    ·
  • fletcherfamfletcherfam Posts: 877
    Shipping to Canada will be a flat fee of $15 plus tare. I talked to Andris again this afternoon, he will get me the information tonight or tomorrow morning. Told him we went from 10 to about 17, was really excited about that one.

    Depending on cost, I may be down for 2. I might get one for the oven too.

    We should set up an Amazon payment account. No fees like PayPal.

  • fletcherfamfletcherfam Posts: 877
    In terms of payment, here is what Andris and I have talked about, nothing final, just thinking of the easiest way to do it.

    He has a website that accepts credit cards. The idea is either order the stone by a set date, put in a promotion code that would apply for us only, and then in the notes put "Egghead Group Buy." Or something like that.

    The reason for ordering by a set date is then he has all the orders at once and can fab it all in one fell swoop (this is how we are going to save money). He would let us know of the production date and ship date as to when he would be sending them out.

    The other option we talked about is to have him give us a specific website address that is only open until a certain date that we are only allowed access to. Then order from there.

    The price is including shipping to continental US. As mentioned earlier shipping to Canada is $15 extra plus a "tare."

    I have the feeling Fred is going to make a lot of Canadian friends soon. Is there a Leafs/Wings game left?

    If I can get a round 14-16", I think I could swing it!

  • caneggercanegger Posts: 537

    I have the rectangular Baking Steel 18x14.  I can't imagine the 1/2 thick.  That thing would weigh thirty pounds.

    I love mine and have used it in the oven and on my XL.  I do platesetter legs up, grid, the woo inverted with the BS on the woo ring.  

    Gets a great elevation that way. 

    I will buy a 16"round 1/4 inch

    I may be interested depending on price on a 14-16"
