Baking steels conduct heat better than a pizza stone, stores more heat per unit volume, and stabilizes at a lower temperature.
In a 500°F oven, a baking steel will stabilize at around 450°F due to the steel's radiative properties. It gives constant heat even as it absorbs it, causing it to stabilize at a temperature that's slightly cooler than the air around it. Even though the steel is cooler than a stone, it is far superior at transferring energy to whatever is placed on top of it.
Pizzacraft Baking Steels are pre-seasoned with vegetable oil. Seasoning helps to condition the steel and prevents food from sticking to it.
*Pizza steels are intended for oven use. If using on a grill, only use indirect heat. Do not turn burners on directly under the steel.
