Oven peel

Oven peelAn oven peel was used for lifting bread and other foodstuffs in and out of a baker’s oven, which was usually very deep. They were in common use in most farmhouses during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This peel has a broad, flat shovel and a long handle with a ring at the end. The Museum holds little information about this peel, but it is believed to be of Kent origin.
