Enjoy pizza that tastes like it just came out of a brick oven from the convenience of your kitchen or grill. Baking stone cooks pizza evenly without hotspots and helps uniformly brown and crisp crust. Also great for cooking and reheating bread, pastries and baked goods. Made of cordierite, which is fired at a higher temperature than ceramic and can withstand thermal shock, easy-care stones require no seasoning or conditioning. For best results, pre-heat oven or grill to 500°F and place stone in middle of oven on lowest rack or middle of grill for 30 minutes. When it is time to bake, dust stone with cornmeal before placing baked goods on top. If baking a prepared food item, bake as directed by manufacturer on packaging. For fresh pizza, a flat metal spatula or a pizza peel dusted with cornmeal works well for transferring food to the baking stone. Alternatively, using an oven mitt or glove, remove the hot stone from the oven, place food to be baked onto the stone and return both to the oven or grill. Manufacturer: Sur La Table. Care: Scrape off excess food with a spatula. When the stone has cooled, run it under hot water while scrubbing with a brush. Do not use soap on the stone as it may leave a soapy aftertaste. The natural properties of the baking stone will cause it to darken and spot with age; do not attempt to remove this discoloration. Air-dry the stone and store inside the oven.
