Re: anyone use/have a pizza/bread stone?

Not sure how thick they are, but I believe they are the thickest you can buy. I have several of them, and use atleast one of the stones daily, many days a couple of them are used.

Hmm, can't tell you the brand it is, but it's about 1/2 inch thick?
I haven't done bread, just pizza and it does wonders with baking cookies!!!

Re: anyone use/have a pizza/bread stone?

I have 2 Pampered Chef flat stones (the round one and the rectangular one). LOVE them! I've used them for frozen pizza and cookies, mostly, but they're fantastic! Had them for probably 8 years now? Probably more...

Re: anyone use/have a pizza/bread stone?

i've had a williams and sonoma one (wedding present) for 5 years, and it's great. we don't use it all that often though, maybe a few times a month for a few months, then off for a couple months, then we remember it and use it frequently for a while till we get tired of pizza again, etc ...

Where do you get something like this?

I have a bread book that suggests using this sort of thing, but haven't figured out where to find them?

They're awesome!!!!

thickness? I wouldn't say more than a 1/2 inch thick... i don't recall and I'm too lazy to check.. .but if you get onto Pampered Chef I'm sure you can find the answer you're looking for.

Good luck!!!

Are these all from pampered chef? I guess I *will* be heading over there soon!

Try a bulding supply store (like home depot or lowes, etc. even a small local one). Also try a tile and carpet store, or sometimes even a plant nursery. What you are specificaly looking for is called a "saltillo tile" which is usualy orange-ish and about 20"x20"x3/4". I've heard that other types of unglazed tiles work the same, but I don't know what they are called. Just make sure to season whatever you get for several hours (even overnight) in a warm oven. This will prevent it from cracking when you use it at hight temps (450-500 degrees) for pizza and the like. HTH!

Re: anyone use/have a pizza/bread stone?

Mine cracked, actually shattered. When I dropped it on the floor. I was trying to open the oven and holding the stone at same time, I don't suggest it. But I LOVE my stones, have had them for 6 or more years. I have a pizza stone, a bar stone, flutted stone (bunt pan) a square, and 9x13. They are great.
