Andris Lagsdin

Owner, Baking Steel

Andris Lagsdin spent a lot of time working in two very different industries – the restaurant business, and steel manufacturing.  That’s why it was surprising to him when the perfect idea to blend those two ideas together came to him in the form of a better way to cook pizza at home.

Baking Steel started as a concept in Andris’ kitchen, grew into a kickstarter project, and finally blossomed into an essential component in the kitchens of home chefs all over the world.

In this edition of Power Hitters, Andris shares what it meant for him to make the leap to his own business, how he approaches marketing his product to his audience, and why he’s so excited to spread the gospel of cooking on steel.
