WOODEN PIZZA PEELS
To seal, wipe with mineral oil on the surface of the peel to prevent liquids from permeating the board surface. You can also use John Boos Mystery Oil
as a protectant.
Hand wash with a soft cloth and dry thoroughly.
Avoid using a dishwasher, abrasives, or acidic detergents.
Daily Care Notes:
Never allow the peel to be soaked in water. Avoid leaving the peel on hot surfaces. This increases the chance of warping. If the peel warps, leave overnight with the warp facing up and it should flatten out.
Prior to using aluminum pizza screens for the first time, a release agent or oil is recommended to prevent sticking.
Screens can also be seasoned by wiping oil on the surface of the pan and allowing the oil to soak for 30 minutes. Then bake the screen at regular cooking times and temperatures. Do not wash off excess oil – just wipe. The oil residue and any additional oil added before baking makes the screen stick resistant. The screen is now ready for use.
Aluminum pizza screens should be washed by hand using a mild detergent (preferably one made specifically for aluminum). After washing, pat the screen dry and store appropriately (see below). To insure proper sanitation, heat pan to cooking temperature in oven after each wash and then reapply release agent or oil to prevent sticking.
Note: Do not expose aluminum screens to dishwashers or high alkaline / acidic detergents. Also, do not use abrasive pads as they can scratch the aluminum and create rust.
Other Care Notes:
Storing the pizza screens in a pizza screen rack is recommended. The rack helps by protecting the screens from being accidentally bent and allows easy access within safe storage.
HARD COAT PIZZA PANS
Hand wash in warm, soapy water and dry quickly. Wipe oil on the inside and outside of pan and allow it to soak in for 30 minutes. Then bake at regular temperature. Wipe off oils after baking (do not wash off excess oil). The oil makes the pan stick resistant.
Hand wash in warm, soapy water with a soft sponge. Do not expose the pan to a dishwasher, abrasive sponges, caustic cleaners or acidic detergents.
Daily Care Notes:
If scoured, the pan will thin, so use care when handling.
