The Steelmade XL Pizza Steel is made from a single slab of 1/4" steel with front and rear curved edges formed into the metal. This unique design elevates the Pizza Steel off of your oven rack to provide easy lifting using the hand cutout on the sides while the smooth curve on the front makes it easy to slide your pizza onto the steel with no edge to catch your pizza peel.
The seasoning process is the black magic of Pizza Steel ownership. If you’ve ever owned cast iron cookware, you’re probably already familiar with the term. For the uninitiated, “seasoning” refers to a natural chemical reaction where oil and fat are heated to the point where they literally bake into the steel through a process called polymerization. This transforms the raw silver steel into a gorgeous black finish with amazing non-stick properties without the use of dangerous coatings like Teflon.
The Pizza Steel arrives unseasoned with a protective layer of oil on it to prevent corrosion during shipping. Seasoning your Pizza Steel is a simple process that only requires adding a small amount of Steelmade Pizza Steel Conditioner or cooking oil of your choice to the Pizza Steel and baking in your oven at 400 degrees. You can repeat this process to quicken the seasoning process or simply allow the seasoning to build over time naturally while baking on the Pizza Steel.
