Benefits of using lava stone

The porous nature of the stone aids in moisture absorption, preventing a soggy crust and enhancing overall texture. Beyond pizzas, this versatile lava stone is perfect for baking breads and pastries, and cooking meats, fish, and vegetables. Use the stone in the oven, or place on the grill! Once removed from the heat source, the stone will keep its temperature for at least 20-25 minutes.

Curing & Care Instructions

Curing: Curing a lava stone is crucial to prepare it for use and ensure its longevity. Wash the stone with water and dry with a soft cloth. DO NOT use any type of detergent or soap as the porous stone could absorb the soap and affect future flavors. Place the stone in a cold oven, then set the temperature to 400-500 F to heat the stone gradually. Leave on for 30 minutes to ensure entire stone is evenly heated. Turn off the oven and let stone cool down gradually inside the oven. Lightly brush with a thin layer of vegetable oil to create a non-stock surface and enhance the stone's performance.

Cleaning: After use, allow the lava stone to cool completely. Brush off any remaining debris with a dry brush or damp cloth. Avoid using soap or submerging the stone in water. For tough stains, apply a paste of baking soda and water. Let the paste sit for 10 - 15 minutes, then scrub with a soft brush or cloth. 

For the Pizza Peel, handwash only.
