Baking steel or not to baking steel

I've been talking with Andris about cutting me a round steel..I'm just not sure if I should get it or not. Please provide me with pros and cons and pics to back up the pros...I'm on the fence. I don't make many pizzas...so thoughts?

    It seems like there was a bunch of excitement here about them and then nobody really talked about them after they got delivered. Weird.

    I haven't used mine yet...but seeing it used as a flat top is pretty awesome! It makes me more excited to use it. I'm hoping to make some pies this weekend.

    I haven't scheduled a pizza night so it hasn't been used yet.  Like cazzy, seeing it used like a flat top is interesting and I can't think of a better way to season it like cooking burgers and grilled onions.  Thanks for the idea @Mighty_Quinn !

    I've never understood the hype.  I just use a CI comal to achieve the same thing.

    I feel the same way as VI. I don't know that the steel would offer something to me that my cast iron stuff and a pizza stone can't already do, especially to justify the cost.

    Just my $.02

    Not many pizzas, a lodge cast iron can get you skillet burgers and anything else you can cook on the steel more than likely.

    For me, I did consider the cost but when pricing out the same-sized stone and cast iron with the same level of quality it was cheaper to get the Baking Steel.
