Sneak Peak ~ KK 3/8" A36 Baking Steel

Recommended Posts

It weighs about 10 kilos / 22 lbs.  It will have the oil gutter moved over about 1/2" dead center left and right where there will be holes in the side for some grabbers we will ship with the  steel..  It has such a high heat transfer you can bake things quickly at lower temps than other stones.. This is the only way to do the cracker crust pizzas..

Darn it...bad timing :D   I like the shape and handles compared to my Baking Steel.   I just might have to have it though :D    Its my favorite method for making burgers.   Smash burgers rule especially on thick plate steel!    Nice job Dennis!

Is it for the upper grate or the main grate? 

Can be used either.. with the oil groove down on the upper grate as a baking steel or with the groove up as a griddle on the main grill.

It is about 18" wide.. We are in the process of testing a textured surface for the pizza side, fine tuning the tools used to pick them up from holes in the sides and learning about seasoning. They will be pre-seasoned from the factory.  

They are A36 Mild (low-carbon) steel, this radiates heat best, much better than stainless for this application.. (think cast iron skillet).    It just means you need to dry them after washing.

For all you folks out there that don't speak metallurgy, this is not stainless steel; so it will need to be taken care of like your cast iron or carbon steel pans, or it will rust - quickly!
