Pros & Cons

    Pros

  • Safe to use on outdoor or indoor heat sources, grill and microwave
  • Bakes evenly and produces crispy crust
  • Good heat retention properties
  • Withstands up to 2000 degree F
  • Takes less time when preheated

  • Heavy
Review Summary

The Old Stone Oven Pizza Stone is a composite of stone/lead free clay and is available in different sizes, shapes and thickness. This stone retains heat very well which is perfect for producing crispy crust pizzas, pie, cookies, focaccia or bread. The special heat core center bakes and cooks evenly, solving the under-baked problems. The stone is perfectly suitable as a server or warmer. It is good to have a stone which has some thickness, the thicker the better, as thin stones though are light in weight, may not produce well-cooked crusts and break easily. The Old Stone stones are also suitable to be used on microwave, gas or charcoal grills and withstands heat up to 2000 degree F. To avoid breakage, it is good to place the stone in non-preheated oven and then preheat the stone and oven at the same time.

However, some users say these stones crack eventually and the thicker ones are on heavier side to carry. Thin stones do not retain heat for longer time and breaks easily.
