Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: The Baking Steel

20131210- v.jpg

Today's giveaway might be familiar to you if you're a longtime reader or big-time pizza fan. The Baking Steel is, as Kenji raved in a Pizza Lab post, "the most impressive home pizza product I've ever tested."

The Baking Steel produces some of the finest indoor-oven pies we've ever seen. It's a quarter-inch-thick, 15-pound steel plate that you place in your oven in lieu of a pizza stone. Because of its superior thermal qualities (higher volumetric heat capacity, as well as higher conductivity than stone), you can cook pizzas faster than you'd be able to with a regular stone. Kenji's pies baked in just under 4 minutes and had some of the best crust and hole structures he's ever seen seen come out of his home oven.
