Want to spin your pizza like a pro?
Our team has tried, tested, and reviewed the Ooni Pizza Turning Peel to see if it’s one we’d recommend to our readers. In this review, we’ll cover who this Ooni accessory is for, why you should (or shouldn’t) purchase it, and everything else in between.
This pizza peel is for anyone that wants an easy way to turn their pies without burning their fingers. It’s likely you own a square peel that allows you to pull the pie out of the oven and turn it with your fingers. This is great and all if you don’t mind slightly burning your fingertips!
What the Ooni Turning Peel does is it offers a quick way to spin your pie without pulling it out of the oven. The long handle offers a safe distance between you and your oven and the tool itself is lightweight, so no worries about your arm growing tired as you turn your pies.
We found this peel to be great for turning small to medium-sized pizzas. And, when you’re done using, hand wash using a light detergent. We used warm soapy water and it did the trick just fine! Whatever you do, don’t throw it in your dishwasher as this is a sure way to ruin it.
Our team was able to cook pizza faster with this turning peel. We also noticed better results when spinning our pies. How it works is this tool keeps pizza in contact with the stone board as you spin. Due to the non-stick anodized aluminum surface, you don’t have to worry about your pies sticking to your peel.
What’s the point of the perforations? Well, these are there to help any excess flour fall from the base of the pizza. Eliminating this extra flour leads to a perfectly crisp base. Also, it prevents moisture from trapping itself in between the peel and pizza base, leading to soggy crusts.
We can say first-hand that this turning peel does what it claims to do. No complaints from our end!
The Ooni Pizza Turning Peel has made us never want to go back to using a square peel again. It offers an easier, more practical way of spinning pizzas without running the risk of burning ourselves. We enjoyed maximum control and no excess flour with this Ooni accessory and are sure you will too!
