Default Peel size recommendation

Hi, can anyone reccomend a peel size for the
Giardino70? I have a 12x14 already. But just want to know if I could go a little bigger say 14x16? How would that work with a oven opening if 14"?? To tight?

If you have a 70cm oven (27 1/2") my guess is that a 14 inch wide peel is going to hit the fire even if you can get it through the entrance.

Remember, the big peel is only for placing the pizza. Turning it and removing it is done with the little turning peel.

But at 14" thats half the size of the oven floor and i dont think the fire will be on all the other half.

Not sure,but ive never had or done pizza in a WFO. But from videos ive seen, i didnt see the fire take up half the primavera 70 oven, but i may be mistaken?

It seems that you would be well advised to hold off and try the peel you already have before complicating your life with the return of an unnecessary or incorrectly sized peel.

I have used both a 12" and 14" peel, and like the smaller one hands down. Easier to manage through the hearth.

For pizza, use the large wooden peels to make and place the pizza. Use a smaller (8-10 inch diameter) to rotate, lift and remove pizza.

The smaller peel is also useful to maneuvering pots and pans inside the oven.

I find the 25 cm one works great for turning and removing pizzas. A wooden plywood board is perfect for adding pizzas to the oven.
