Product Details

The 15" x 12" Rectangular Economy Pizza Stone (STONE12) is a rectangular, ceramic stone used for baking pizzas.  Baking stones are especially ideal for baking pizzas on because they distribute heat much more efficiently and evenly than metal, so while a metal tray or pan may burn the edges of a pizza while leaving the center cold, a pizza stone will cook the pizza evenly and thoroughly.  This pizza stone measures fifteen inches (38 cm) by twelve inches (30.4 cm) by three eighths of an inch (1 cm) thick. One benefit is that this unit is dishwasher safe.

Customer Reviews

15" x 12" Rectangular Economy Pizza Stone is rated 4.1463 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I expected. This was a replacement for my 8 year old stone that got knocked off the counter... and shattered. Its a nice stone, and the patina is developing nicely on it as I bake pizza and cookies. I have both let the stone heat with the oven and just put it in the hot oven and it worked nicely both ways. I think it does bake better if its pre-heated with the oven, but sometimes I just don't have that kind of time. I do wish it came with, or I could purchase separately, a rack. My previous stone had a rack, and though its a bit big (made for a 14' round stone), it works with this stone okay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I find the stone to be very thin. If it were thicker it would not seem so fragile. I worry that each time I use it, it could break. The heating capacity seems ok for browning and crisping pizza and breads. It would make a good sandwich crisper for a meat and cheese or grilled cheese.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been doing some Emergency Preparedness and was coming up with ways to do some cooking and baking when the electricity goes off. I wanted to experiment with baking bread, etc. on my propane BBQ. This Pizza Stone is just the right size to fit in my BBQ and it helps the bread bake evenly. Next experiment will be Pizza in my BBQ. I bought three so I could give them as Christmas gifts to my siblings. We are all making pizzas when we get together this Christmas! These stones will be a welcome addition to their kitchens also!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been looking for a rectangular stone for home use without spending a fortune. I found this one and it is every bit as good as others I have seen but at a fraction of the cost. I am very happy with this stone and would recommend it to others. It was delivered to my house in a timely manner and packed extremely well. I received it in perfect condition. I use it a lot for baking cookies and works fantastic and cleans off easily. I would definitely recommend purchasing items from FSW.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this primarily to make artinsal breads using the 5 minute a day method with wet dough. It works well. A square stone was recommended for this method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a 48" Blue Star gas range and I put two of these stones side by side on the lowest rack of my larger oven. I leave them in there all the time. The breads I have been baking are amazing. And having the stones in the oven all the time holds the temp more consistant while baking, roasting, etc so the gas doesn't seem to cycle on and off as much. Overall, GREAT PRODUCT for the price!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought 2, 1 intended as a gift. I thought the stone is made in USA, but it is made in China. So I didnot use it as a gift. I was disappointed that it was made in China though. I have used it a few times for bread and pizza. It is effective and price is right. I don't know how long it will last before cracking or if it has health hazard concerns after long use. Hope it does not have lead.

How long does this pizza stone last? How do I clean it after use?
Asked by:
Now, even a beginner can duplicate delicious “restaurant-quality” pizza, focaccia or bread in a standard home oven with the Baking Stone. Just follow these easy directions and any kind of pizza – frozen, packaged mix or start-from-scratch homemade – will have a delicate crispy crust plus a moist, juicy topping without over baking. Breads and focaccia will be crusty outside and tender inside with a rich Tuscan texture. This handmade stone is made of the finest heat-retaining clays available and fired at over 2,000°F. With repeated use, it will harden and actually improve its baking qualities.

Use and Care for your Baking Stone:
1. Wash stone with water before use, with no detergent. Dry well.
2.Put stone in cold oven in the center of the middle rack; preheat to 500°F for 15-20 minutes. It may be heated longer if you wish – The hotter the stone, the crispier the pizza.
3.First, liberally sprinkle a pizza paddle with cornmeal (a flat cookie sheet or large piece of cardboard may also be used). Then put the rolled out pizza dough or formed bread dough on the paddle and assemble the pizza.
4.When stone is hot, sprinkle some cornmeal on it and then slide the pizza off the paddle and onto the stone with a quick forward motion and sharp backward jerk.
5.Bake the piazza or bread per your recipe until done and remove from oven with a paddle and serve. Let stone cool completely before washing.
6.The hot stone can be used as a server to keep your pizza piping hot. Be sure to use heavy mitts to remove stone and pizza from oven and place on a heat-proof trivet or mat to protect countertop.
7.Kitchen shears are recommended for cutting pizza when served on the stone. If you choose to cut with a pizza wheel cutter or sharp knife, first transfer pizza to a metal pan or cutting board. Never cut pizza on the stone as it will mar the surface.
8.The stone is quite durable, but it may break or chip if dropped. Handle it carefully.
9.Cleaning the stone – It is normal for the stone to accumulate stains from drippings even after washing. This will not alter the taste of your pizza or bread or the stone’s baking performance. However, cooking residue may smoke and create odors. A scouring pad will remove most burned on bits. If accumulation is heavy, then a thorough sanding with a hard abrasive, like emery paper, may be necessary. An electric belt sander works well to clean the stone. Small stains can be cleaned by scrubbing with a toothbrush and a posted made of baking soda and water.

Do not bake cookies, turnovers or other items with a significant fat content directly on the stone. The stone will absorb the fat and cause smoking, odors and stains.
