Found European Pizza Paddle is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pizza paddles are really unique I purchased two of the paddles, one as a birthday gift, one to keep. Both paddles were the same shape though different sizes and colors. One had a repair on the handle which only added to its character. Had a tough time deciding which one to give away. Looks great in my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really neat ! Old world and authentic looking. I ordered three and they were of similar size and shape. You can almost smell the pizza ! One handle was curved and adds interest. I've had many compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique product! I love these pizza paddles. I bought three for a large kitchen wall in our home and they work perfectly! Each is slightly different. One's paddle is very dark (worn), one's handle is slightly curved. Pretty easy to add the hooks and hang. Definitley recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I'd hoped for I just received my 2 pizza paddles and love them! They are old and one side of each is patched, but they have that old, European look. The surface is waxed and smooth in warm wood tones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hanging question Bought two of them and just received. They look great - how in the world do you hang these??? Don't want to drill holes in them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pizza paddle ok The paddle I recd lacked the interesting detail shown in the product catalog. So I added some distressed finishing details and a faux historic tag to embellish it. Overall, it's worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like the look it provides on a wall I purchased 2 paddles. They give a unique dimension to wall decor and I like it. I have seen antique oven/pizza paddles in Europe. These could be “authentic”, and I would hope Ballard Designs would not include a false detail saying they are authentic when In fact they aren’t. If by chance they are not authentic, price should be much less. It’s about the wall decor. Right?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Made it work Of the 2 I got, only one has even a remote possibility of being "found" while the other is clearly new pine wood charred to make look aged. Mine are much darker than the ones pictured here, but overall I am fine with the end result.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed Did not look exactly like I thought it would. But still an unique piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice feature While I love this paddle and have it hanging up, it is clearly "new" and not "found". I got it on sale, as I would have not paid full price for this item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I know they're all different , but mine is far from round and more beat up than expected Just not what I thought. It looks like a canoe paddle interrible shape.
Date published: 2016-10-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely not as pictured I ordered two of these. The first one was very dark and only about 8 inches wide. I sent it back. The second was a little better but still looked nothing like the ones in the magazine. They obviously kept the best looking ones for the pictures.
Date published: 2014-11-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quick delivery The European found pizza paddles arrived quickly, and while the catelog stated that all the paddles were different, I was a bit disappointed that the 2 paddles I purchased were not as nice or detailed as the ones in the catelog. They are OK, and I will keep them, I was just hoping for something closer to the pictured items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looked at nothing like the pictures They didn’t look like the pictures online at all were to dark.
Date published: 2020-06-06
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a pizza paddle at all The color is good, but it’s definitely not a pizza paddle. The “pizza” area is way too thick. We kept it anyway.
Date published: 2020-03-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a found item, color darker This is definitely not a found item. Some of the nail pins are bright & shiny silver. It’s way darker than pictured too. It’s a nice attempt, but Ballard is misleading buyers on this one.
Date published: 2019-05-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Colors way off. The colors on these two that I ordered are so different I have to paint them I guess. my husband threw the box out before I could request a return. A little off would be ok but one is dark coffee and one is like pictured about the bed on the site. Not real happy and they are twice the price as other places I have found.
Date published: 2019-03-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from not authentic I was so disappointed with these paddles. Purchased two that are identical- looks like someone just made them and put a little piece of metal on each in exactly the same spot to make them look aged?. I am keeping them and going to distress and add some stain to them but these are not worth the money. Shame on ballards. I've purchased so much from them and have always been pleased. Not this time
Date published: 2017-06-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected It did not appear to bel found at all. It seemed like a newly made paddle made to look old. Very disappointed.
Date published: 2016-04-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as pictured Clearly the best looking ones were pictured in the catalogue. If I received one that looked like the ones in the catalogue, I'd be very happy. The one I received is very dark, much smaller, and extremely lopsided.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT ORDER THESE! After several months of delay. I received the 2 "European" pizza paddles. I cannot tell you how disappointd I was after removing them from the box. First of all, in no way are these "European" and they are nothing like what is shown in the picture. They are not old but rather are new, cheap construction and are made very poorly. The paddle part is at last 1 1/2" thick, completely round and is held together with STAPLES which can be seen. If I were to shorten the handle, it would look like a small banjo. I would be embarrassed to hang these anywhere in my home. My advice is DO NOT BUY!
Date published: 2020-06-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good It looked nothing like the picture. The biggest problem was it was a completely different color, did not look antique at all. I returned it.
Date published: 2020-01-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The paddle wasn't like the catalog picture The pizza paddle has been on my wish list for awhile so I finally bought it and was so disappointed. It wasn't at all "rustic and used" as expected. Honestly it looks like it recently came from a wood shop that was roughed up like home floors with a round top that couldn't fit a pizza if we wanted plus the top was 2 inches thick! I never give bad reviews but this just wasn't what Ballards said it would be. Skip this purchase.
Date published: 2017-07-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Look Authentic! Like the previous poster stated, these do not look authentic. I purchased two and they look identical except one is slightly smaller. Both have the same so called "repair". Can't express how disappointed I am with this purchase.
Date published: 2016-02-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as pictured I had high hopes for this item, but the paddle I received is much darker than the ones pictured. In my opinion, it does not seem authentic and is not worth the price. I have many wonderful Ballard items in my home and this is my first disappointment.
