First of all, the baking stone is gorgeous. Definitely something I would leave out on the counter.

More IMPORTANTLY it cooks really nicely. Pizzas brown nicely and stay warm while being served because the stone stays warm for a long time. I also experimented baking cookies on it. The cookies puffed up and looked a little crackly like you'd see in a bakery. The cookies on the metal baking sheet were flat and unimpressive looking, so I discovered a way to make non-gourmet cookies look gourmet. What's not to love?

I love this stone's performance. The oven in my apartment is of 1970's vintage and getting the bottom of anything to brown is rare. But with the soapstone baking stone cookies and breads are all browned beautifully, both top and bottom. The soapstone is easy to use. Just a little cooking spray on the surface for bread is perfect and the clean up is just a simple "wipe it up." Cookies are evenly lightly browned on top and bottom. And, most importantly, the flavor is top notch. Kudos for this soapstone product for both performance and flavor!!

This is a really nice stone and it retains heat well. Since it is an actual stone be aware of the weight, it is heavy! This can make it more difficult to move on the oven rack (especially when hot) than my old traditional pizza stone. This has a nice color but did stain the first time I used it from the pizza grease that overflowed onto it throughout cooking. Also, I recommend heating the stone then putting the food on it, we heated the stone and pizza together once (as it says you can) and the dough completely stuck to it.

I have used this stone a lot since I bought it - the first thing I made on it was Baguettes and they came out nice and crisp on the bottom. I just leave the stone in my oven at all time on the lowest rack and when I use it just move it to an upper rack. Plus it looks beautiful.

We have been using the stone for baking a wide range of things. Bread, Pizza, cookies, rewarming left overs, they all turn out great. We have used other stones, but this one is the best so far.

Easy to bake a flat bread pizza on ! Will be using for fajitas served at the table as the stone keeps the meat warm longer than a traditional serving plate. I also used as a cutting board for the meats and then set on the grill for an even cooking platform.

Anyone that has EVER used a pizza stone KNOWS that is is GREAT for cooking pizzas. It is ALSO great for baking also. Now the problem with baking is, it is round. Now they have made a nice, BIG rectangular one? Oh yeah. Now I can bake my pizzas, which this stone does VERY nicely, AND I can also use it for my baking as well!!! The stone itself is not real heavy considering its size, and the color is really nice and really flows with my kitchen decor. Not only that, but there are PLENTY of things that say "leave on the baking sheet to finish cooking"; this soapstone pizza stone really holds the heat after it comes out of the oven. This is great because it really crisps up the bottoms and cools slowly enough not to burn the bottom. Great pizza stone! Very nice change to the round.

This item has revolutionized the way that I cook some of my family recipes. I bake a lot of bread, and we have pizza (and wing) Thursday every week. This soapstone blows away any baking stone I have ever used in my life. It is the first stone to actually help me achieve a crispy crust on my pizza and pizza rolls. It is the first stone to turn my bread from home-baked bread, to Bakery-Quality -- Stone-Fired bread. I can now achieve that same crispy bottom and exterior that I once thought I would have to give-up if I wanted to bake at home.

Not only does it produce great results, but it is absolutely beautiful for serving things. Instead of taking the pizza out of the oven, take the whole stone out and you have a beautiful (but dangerously hot) serving plate. If you don't use it to bake, it also is beautiful for serving cheese plates. We will occasionally use it for sopressata and calabrese paired with our favorite cheeses and crackers.

It heats up much quicker than my old stone. 30 minutes and it is piping-hot (I let it preheat with the oven).

Cleaning it is easy because I just use a cleaning utensil that is softer than the soapstone material. This way, I can scrub away without fear of damaging the material.

If I had one complaint, it would be that I did not buy a bigger size. A 12 x 16 pizza is a little funny looking.
