Although this product might be the most expensive they are extremely durable, so cordierite stones are built to outlast all other oven baking stone. Cordierite is a mineral known for its ability to handle extreme temperatures well, which is great as a material for cooking. It’s the same material they use to make kiln shelves, and its thermal shock resistant. This means you can take a cordierite stone from a low temperature to a very high temperature without the risk of breaking it. These stones can literally handle all the heat your oven or grill can dish out and still keep cranking out pizzas year after year, this is very important because if it´s an expensive product it should be able to last for a long time.


In the food industry, safety is of prime importance. So it may appear strange to use a type of stone on the kitchen but good cordierite pizza stone manufacturers count with the correct certifications. For example, Shengye Refractory Material Co., Ltd. (Shengye in Short) is a company that has a lot of food safety regulations and that is why they have so many costumers all over the world. They are manufactured from pure raw materials that contain only extremely low levels of lead or cadmium (<0.1%). These trace levels are securely ‘locked’ within the ceramic matrix. What does this mean? It´s that the products have all been pre-fired to over 1300oC; they are inert in use and are not affected by water or steam.  They do not give off any vapors or odors that might affect the taste of food.


This are great because it regards the food that is going to be eaten and it should be safe to use. Still not convince that they are a good investment? Think again. A pizza stone is supposed to help mimic the effects of a brick oven in an environment that is not it. The porous stone absorbs and retains heat evenly and eliminates excess moisture in the pizza dough to create an extremely crisp and evenly cooked crust.
However a pizza stone requires some special care. We are going to dive into a list that should be followed to keep a stone in great shape:
• Never wash a pizza stone with soap. This is because the pores would absorb it, so it will be very noticeable while baking the next food on the surface.
• Never submerge a stone in water. Instead, once the stone has cooled completely after being put on a hot surface, scrape off any baked-on food with a stiff, dry brush and then use a damp cloth to wipe it down. Don’t worry if your stone gets stained, that’s natural and will not affect the flavor of the next food that you make.
• If your stone gets extremely dirty and you don´t like the appearance you can use sandpaper to sand down any raised bits.
