Modernist Cuisine Baking Steel

By: on August 14, 2013

The Modernist Cuisine Baking Steel, a heat-sucking slab of metal for home ovens, stovetops, and grills, deems itself virtually indestructible and swears it will never shatter or crack. Funny, because I guarantee the exact opposite will be true of my foot when I drop the Modernist Cuisine Baking Steel on it.

Weighing in at a hefty 22 pounds even after starving and dehydrating itself for 3 days, the collaboration between Modernist Cuisine and steel worker/pizza fanatic Andris Lagsdin boasts of being the perfect balance of performance and weight, and best means available for cooking an Italian pie in the oven or on the grill. The Baking Steel special edition also doubles as a griddle on the stovetop, and a cold plate after a few hours in the icebox. I dare you to freeze it and lick it.

Modernist Cuisine Baking Steel slabs are made from recycled steel and arrive pre-seasoned.

Muchas danke to The Green Head.
