Do you use it to bake on or just set it in the oven to distribute heat when you bake in another pan?

We set it over the bottom. Use just like the pizza stone. Then will use whatever to cook on

We bought an expensive pizza stone and the same thing happened. Returned it to the store and got refund. Bought a real cheap one - same results. We don't bother anymore as the oven in our fiver gives us pretty good heat distribution. If I buy another, it will be a big oven baked clay tile.

Found a 14" square cast iron BBQ grill pan at the local Lowes - about 1/2" thick - weighs about what you'd expect - a lot.... I think it was about 15 bucks.

Works great to even out the heat in our oven; we make a point of baking something every trip out (cinnamon rolls for Sunday morning breakfast is almost a given now) - and never have a problem (I do still rotate whatever I'm baking 2-3 times during the cooking time, just to keep it even.

Burn relief

I never new how to keep stuff from burning in these little gas ovens. (Two boats, three different trailers). We traded for a new Flagstaff in late summer and I decided to use the cast iron griddle in the oven instead of my pizza stone from the house. I have only used the oven once, but my biscuits did NOT burn. In addition, I plan on using the griddle grill pan on the BBQ as well! Double duty is always a plus!

Wrap the broken stone with aluminum foil. It will keep the broken pieces together, easy to clean, and the foil/stone combination works wonders.

As a baker I can tell you the reasons that a pizza or baking stone will crack

1) Moisture - can be from being stored in a humid area, condensation, or the stone just getting wet at all. Pizza and baking stones are not meant to be washed and humidity and condensation are not their friend.

2) Heat- warm your stone slowly starting with a cold oven and when done, let it cool in the oven until cold

3) Disparity of temperature- Food should be room temperature and should be heated along with the stone if possible. Never ever put a frozen item on stone, such as a frozen pizza as it will guarantee cracking. Let other items warm to room temperature before putting them on your stone.

4) A crack or fault in the stone. Stones are notoriously easy to develop hairline cracks from bumping when handling and storing.

Hope this helps you all!

We had the same cracking issue with store bought stones, then got a California Pizza Stone and no problems since. 14 inch square stone for the 14 & 1/2 inch oven. Order online
