Manufactured in the United States by Baking Steel, the metal sheet is touted as an indestructible, ultra-heat-efficient alternative to the baking stone.
Designed to transfer large amounts of heat quickly and evenly, the new sheet is said to provide quality results when baking a host of items ranging from artisanal bread to pizza.
According to Anova, thin-crust pizzas are best when baked quickly, which in commercial settings is done in ovens at temperatures of more than 900° Fahrenheit. While home ovens are unable to achieve such high temperatures, this is where the Baking Steel comes in.
Using thermal heat conductivity, the Baking Steel at a temperature of 480° Fahrenheit is said to deliver as much heat as a baking stone at temperatures produced in wood-fired ovens.
Weighing 13.6-pounds, the Baking Steel is priced at $99.
