Why Should You Buy This Pizza Steel?

The NerdChef stone is the baking surface that’ll help any home cooks achieve mouth-watering pizzas without having to break the bank on a pizza oven. When you already have an oven in your kitchen, the NerdChef pizza steel helps you make the most of it. 

Thanks to its conductivity that’s 20 times higher than ceramic baking stones with twice the heat capacity, the NerdChef baking surface will transfer more heat energy to your crusts, so you get the performance of 1,000°F at 450°F. 

To boot, the surface of this pizza stone is sanded smooth and seasoned with flaxseed oil to produce a low-friction surface that is perfect for sliding pizzas into the oven or onto a serving tray. The NerdChef pizza stone weighs a bit on the heavy side, but the engineers considered this and equipped it with two handy finger holes for easy carrying.

Our Verdict

All in all, the Nerd Chef Pizza Steel is certainly a baking tool you want in your culinary armor. It’s the pizza steel that not only provides gorgeous crusts, faster cook times, and better blistering but can also double as a cold plate when you place some ice beneath it. 

 

Whether you’re in the mood for pizza or ice cream, this high-performance baking surface is the best companion to make it all happen!
