Baker's peels - too wide?

mangiaFagioli's picture

I don't understand why I can't find narrow single loaf peels, so that i can flip the loaves as I drop them on the stone. The wider ones are just too hard to use that way. Anyone else?

I flip loaves out of rising baskets onto the peel and then slide them onto the stone. If you are using a couche, flip them onto a piece of 1x4 and then onto the peel.

Check out your local restaurant supply store.  Last time I was in mine I noticed they had about half a dozen different sizes and shapes of peels.

Actually, I have the solution. Went to the antique market--you need a cricket bat.

Lowes or any building supply store carries specialty wood. I bought a 2 foot piece of Oak about 1/4 inch thick and 4 inches wide. I did a little sawing to shape a handle on in and sanded the leading edge to make it, not sharp, but thinner to slide under a loaf.
