Pizzacraft PC9899 20 x 13.5 Rectangular ThermaBond Baking/Pizza Stone for Oven or Grill
Cooking pizza from scratch is becoming more popular among enthusiasts and the economically-minded alike. Making pizza at home leaves you free to experiment, select the best ingredients, and save the money you’d have spent tipping the delivery guy.
This Pizzacraft baking stone is perfect for pizza, bread, pastries and other food, eliminating hot spots while cooking, and producing a uniformly browned crust. Just like food baked in a professional brick-lined oven – but it’s from your kitchen or grill.
This stone is also convenient for heating and re-heating ready-made frozen pizzas and baked goods. Easy to maintain as the stone requires no seasoning or conditioning. Thermal shock resistant and made of 100% All-Natural FDA-Safe material.
ThermaBond™ stones are manufactured with Pizzacraft’s exclusive ThermaBond™ technology; specially formulated to eliminate thermal shock breakage, promote even heat distribution and retention, and guaranteed durability for consistent cooking on the oven or grill.
HOW TO USE: For best results, pre-heat oven to 500° F (260° C) and place stone in middle of oven on lowest rack. If using a grill, preheat to same temperature and place on middle of grill for 30 minutes. When it is time to bake, dust stone with cornmeal before placing baked goods on top. For fresh pizza, a flat metal spatula or a pizza peel dusted with cornmeal works well for transferring food to the baking stone. Alternatively, wearing an oven mitt or glove, remove the hot stone from the oven, place pizza on the stone and return both to the oven or grill.
This baking stone can be used for bread, pizza and other baked goods. Please keep in mind that some foods, such as bread and pizza, will do well baked directly on the stone, while others may require a thin layer of foil between the food and the surface of the stone. The layer of foil will promote optimal baking for certain types of food such as cookies.
CARE: This cordierite baking stone is extremely durable and will not crack because of thermal shock. There is no need to soak the stone in water before use.
To clean, scrape off any 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 stones 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.
PLEASE NOTE: This pizza stone contains cordierite, a natural mineral that strengthens thermal shock resistance. This is why your stone will not crack during high-heat use. Some people find that the first time they heat the stone, there is an odor. The smell comes from cordierite and will disappear with use. It is non-toxic.
PLEASE NOTE: This baking stone was updated in 2015 and now measures 20″ by 13.5″ by .67″ Inches. The width of the stone remains the same, but the length was reduced by 2.5 inches. These changes were made in response to customer feedback that the stone was too long for many standard ovens. The 20″ long stone can now fit in most ovens. We also boosted the stone’s thickness to make it even more durable. We’re glad we were able to make these changes for our customers.
