Unglazed tile

Just left Home Depot. I ask them about unglazed tile. The guy looked at me like I had a 3rd eye. Guess I will have to look online. For those that went this route for the oven, did you pick it up locally at a Home Depot or Lowes?

Browsing Home Depot's website, they are only sold online.

Suggestion; look up tile shops, big ones with showrooms in your area. They usually have close-outs. I believe tavertine; defined as: Travertine stone tile is available in two main types, natural/tumbled and honed. Natural, or tumbled Travertine tile, is left more in its original state would work. Your lookking for a heat difuser. Just sayin'

A pizza stone works well. Be sure to measure the inside of the over first to get the correct size. We got ours at Cabala's, but have seen them at several kitchen type stores.

I too had a real hard time finding any unglazed tiles at HD. I am wondering if I can just use a natural stone like slate or something.

I agree with swmelton. Look for a pizza stone at the cheap kitchen gadgets store or even Target/Walmart.

Unglazed tiles at Home Depot are a regional item. I found boxes of them at HD in Casa Grande, AZ. I think $2 each. 12 inch square which fits the current smaller ovens. I bought 5 or 6. First one broke in thirds after about 4 months. I just push it back together. Works great.

I have seen a couple posts about concerns using these (unknown chemicals, etc). My research indicated this was only a concern if food is coming in direct contact with clay. You decide what risk you're willing to take......

I think he might be right. On the West coast it seems like it's a normal in-store item, but going through Louisiana I tried to replace one of mine that cracked and they didn't seem to know what I was talking about. I prefer the full coverage with tiles and they fit like a glove in my particular oven with just about the perfect gap all the way around.

The down side is when they crack, they have a tendency to slip down through the oven rack and can scratch.

Thanks for all the replies. Few notes/comments:
I checked Wal Mart for pizza stones right before I went to Home Depot. They had none.
No Menards near me, but I will call a couple flooring places tomorrow to see what they might have.
As far as the pizza stone or tiles cracking, I read on here that someone wrapped theirs in aluminum foil after it cracked. Said it did a good job holding it together without anything falling through.
My oven is 15" x 15". Home Depot has some 6"x 6" tiles online. I'm thinking 4 of them (for 12"x 12") would work well. I may even wrap them in foil from the get go.

Talk about an old dog and new tricks... Excellent tip!! Thanks for sharing. Don't know why I never thought of that. It would sure make clean up a heck a lot simpler too.

Nicely played

I use a clay flower pot saucer about 12" diameter, Walmart about $8.00, works great and has not broken yet.
