Gi.Metal never ceases to amaze, and presents a preview of Napoli, the new professional peel designed for pizza makers who make pizza in the true Neapolitan tradition, i.e. in wood-fired ovens, which reach 500 degrees, and churn out a high number of pizzas per day.
A tribute by the Tuscan company to the city's champions and to all the pizza makers who every day give value to the Neapolitan tradition, the Napoli peel celebrates the very essence of 'Neapolitan-ness', understood, beyond all geographical boundaries, as a true way of being, living, loving, thinking and conceiving existence.
It is in this spirit that Gi.Metal has designed a product of the highest quality, a technologically advanced working tool, capable of interpreting, in every detail, the value and traditions of a unique city.
Naples: Contemporary Tradition
The Napoli peel combines technology and progress with a unique and attractive design.
The light blue S.P.C.- Special Powder Coated - handle is inspired by the unmistakable colour of the sky and sea that frame the Gulf of Naples.
Gi.Metal’s 3 iconic rivets , on the other hand, are coloured in the red, white and green of the Italian flag, symbolising the unmistakable quality of Gi.Metal's Made in Italy, guaranteeing maximum stability and strength of the peel at its most delicate point, the junction between the peel head and the handle. Adding further character to this new product is the tricolour pennant placed at the lower end of the handle. Carefully studied details for an innovative peel, capable of interpreting the very sense of being and feeling Neapolitan, as well as the love for a pizza that has become famous throughout the world.
The characteristics of the Napoli peel
The Napoli peel allows the disc of dough to be lifted directly onto the peel, accompanying it with both hands, and to be easily spread and stretched over the tool.
The perforation of the peel head is functional to these movements: the design, circular shape and quantity of the holes, in fact, were conceived with the typical gesture of preparing this type of pizza in mind, which requires optimal flour discharge.
The head is made of S.H.A. (Special Hard Anodizing) aluminium, a hard oxide anodising that guarantees:
- Heat resistance three times greater than anodised aluminium
- Greater lightness for better work optimisation
- Durability, with great resistance to corrosion, scratches and wear and tear
- Extreme smoothness thanks to the ultra-low friction coefficient
The peel is available in three different head sizes (13", 14", 16") and three different handle lengths (23", 47", 59").
