Default Wood Peel

My lovely wife bought me a FB wooden peel for my Birthday (thank you!)


Is there anything I need to do to get it to function optimally? It's fairly smooth, but not ultra smooth. Should I sand it, or does that make a difference? I have no experience with a WFO yet, but what keeps it from bursting into flames when I stick it into a 900 F oven?

I sanded mine when I got it, and once in a while when it gets cruddy. It's also prone to denting on the edge of the oven opening, and a bit of sanding gets rid of the rough spots.

It's only in there for a second when you place the pizza. I wouldn't try to use it to turn or retrieve the pizza.

Keep one side for pizza building. The bottom will tend to get a bit dirty from the oven floor.
