Serious pizza makers and bread bakers use Old Stone Oven pizza stones. Yet, you don't have to be a serious cook to make restaurant-quality pizza: an Old Stone Oven pizza stone makes it easy. Made of the same material as the Old World's legendary brick pizza ovens, these stones absorb the oven's intense heat and transfer it evenly to your bread and pizza dough. The result is the pizzeria pizza you crave, every time. The crust, crispy and slightly charred, gives way to light, airy chew. Tomatoes burst on your tongue under golden bubbles of cheese. Or, shift gears and bake a hearty loaf atop the stone; your bread comes out of the oven with a baker-approved chewy crust. Invented by Chicago pizza enthusiast, cookware purveyor, and restaurant critic Pasquale "Pat" Bruno more than 40 years ago, Old Stone Oven pizza stones are the original stones for home oven use. Thicker than other stones, their porosity and heat retention create a multilayered crunchy-chewy crust. Manufactured in the US from a special blend of lead-free clays, they are kiln-fired during manufacturing to produce unmatched durability. The stones, therefore, are able to withstand extreme heat and handle temperature changes without cracking. They are oven- and grill safe to 2000 Degree F. Old Stone Oven's largest stone gives you an ample rectangular work surface for mouthwatering pizzas, long French baguettes, and other artisanal breads. A specially engineered Heat Core center concentrates heat in the stone's middle for evenly crispy crusts and eliminates soggy centers. Ridged feet on the stone's underside keep the stone balanced on an oven rack and give you superior grip and maneuverability. Bring the taste of the Old World home with Old Stone Oven.
