Griddle Update 03/10/15
Thank you for your continued interest in the Baking Steel Griddle. We are so anxious to launch! However, our production has been stalled due to unforeseen circumstances.
Last fall we had to order some new equipment to help polish the surface. The equipment made the long journey overseas and finally arrived last month. Recently, we installed and placed the new equipment on the production line, and began testing the machine. After a few trial runs, we noticed some smoke in our filtration system. We pulled the plug, as they say, and went to the source of smoke. It turned out we were lighting our filtration system on fire! Thankfully, no one was hurt and the tests we ran taught us a lot.
This week we have ordered an additional piece of equipment for our production line to eliminate any more fire hazards. Unfortunately, here we are once again in waiting mode. It may be another month or two before the new filtration system arrives; therefore, we have to hold off the Griddle launch.
This has been a very frustrating process and I apologize for the delay, but safety for our team is an obvious concern.
We promise to keep you posted for any news that may arise. And yes, this is killing me...
