It produces an evenly browned crust – what most pizza-lovers are looking for when home cooking their pizzas.
- Kitchen Reviews HQ
ThermaBond technology allows for thermal shock resistance that only adds to perfection in heat distribution.
- Sous Beurre Kitchen
The rectangular design makes it suitable for other purposes, too. If you're feeling the need to make bread or quesadillas, you can fire up your oven and go with this stone.
- Chew The World
This pizza stone looks huge, at first I was afraid that it might be too big for my oven, but luckily it was a perfect fit.

This is a nice and thick stone, which means that it retains high heat for a longer duration of time. It also means that this stone is more durable than the rest, and perfectly resistant to thermal shock.
- Thoroughly Reviewed
It is very easy to clean and stays unbroken even when used in extreme heat

And the tool is super durable that can last for a lifetime as well as not easy to get split even though you may drop it.
- Cook Kitchen Utensils
The stone is so designed that hot spots get eliminated while cooking, ensuring that you have a uniformly brown crust.

This base measures 20 x 13 ½ inches and is ⅔ of an inch thick. The size will allow your stone to fit into any standard conventional oven. The great thing about this being such a wide stone means you will be able to fit two pizzas together on it for double helpings.

As it’s also ⅔” thick, it can retain even more heat without the risk of cracking. Further reinforced with its ThermaBond feature, you can count on this item to also handle changes in temperatures with ease.
- My Pizza Stone
What makes the Pizzacraft stone stand out is the Thermabond technology that it is made from cordierite. The cordierite material has been tempered to withstand not only extreme heat but also, thermal shock.
- Artisan Pizza Kitchen
More surprisingly, this exceptional stone can withstand temperature up to 900 °F.

What experts didn't like
Reported size is slightly under actual size
- Chew The World
This stone has an awful smell, and for me, it didn't go away during the testing period of usage, which is very unusual for cordierite stones.
- Kitchen Byte
The stone is heavy so it is a bit hard to use
- Cookware Junkies

Some buyers have stated that food has stuck to this stone.

From The Manufacturer

Fire up the oven or grill and start baking artisan-style pizzas in the comfort of your own home! Crafting homemade pizzas takes only a good baking stone, a great pizza dough recipe and a few handfuls of your favorite toppings, and in no time you've got a delicious, piping hot, crispy crust pizza of your own making. Enjoy the same quality of food baked in a professional brick lined oven in your home kitchen or grill. Baking stones are perfect for pizza, bread, pastries or any other baked goods, eliminating hot spots while cooking, and produce uniformly browned crust. Baking stones are also convenient for heating and re-heating ready-made frozen pizza and baked goods. Stones require no seasoning or conditioning. Product Care: Stones arrive ready for immediate use there is no need to "season" a new stone with oil or soak the stone in water before each use. The natural properties of a stones will cause it to darken and spot with age; do not attempt to remove this discoloration. Do not ever use soap when cleaning the stone, just hot water and a non-abrasive scrubber. For best results, pre-heat oven or grill to 500° F (260° C) and place stone in middle of oven on lowest rack or middle of grill for 30 minutes. If baking a prepared food item, bake as directed by manufacturer on packaging. For fresh pizza, a flat metal spatula or a pizza peel dusted with cornmeal or flour works well for transferring food to the baking stone. Alternatively, using an oven mitt or glove, remove the hot stone from the oven, place on heat-safe surface, place food to be baked onto the stone, and return both to the oven or grill. STONE WILL GET HOT! USE OVEN MITT OR GLOVE WHEN HANDLING.
