Great for getting pizza in and out of the oven!
I bake my pizzas directly on a ceramic stone - and this peel works great for getting the pizza on and off of it.
One of the advantages of a wooden pizza peel over an aluminum one is that you can slice your pizza right on it. With no wear to your pizza cutter. That said, for pizzas that require more finesse handling (particularly those with toppings stacked high), an aluminum peel will let you pick up the pizza at a narrower angle. Tigerchef has several options in stock, like this one https://www.tigerchef.com/tigerchef-aluminum-pizza-peel-12andquot-x-14andquot-25andquot-oa-length---1-doz.html.
I recommend oiling your wooden pizza peel regularly, just as you would a cutting board. Every few pizzas, I inevitably spill toppings or sauce on it, and having a little water resistance is helpful.
At about 26" long, the handle might look long, but it feels just right. The extra length helps balance the peel giving you a little more control. Given its size, I found the best way to store it is to hang it. Mine is in a cove between the fridge and cabinets.
Length, overall: 41 7/8"

+Sturdy long handle.

+Very good price at $16. Comparable peels are more expensive, in the $25-30 range
