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° 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.

Wait until the baking stone is entirely cooled before attempting to clean it. Let it dry completely before using again. Some discoloration will occur over time; this is natural and will not affect baking. Using baking parchment may help delay that discoloration. Do not bake cookies, turnovers or other high-fat items on the stone; the stone would absorb the fat and proceed to produce smoke and bad odors. The stone comes with a flyer that contains detailed use and cleaning instructions, as well as recipes for bread, pizza dough, and two pizza toppings. --Garland Withers
Pizza pan breaks easily - extra padding is required.

2 years is a decent amount of time, but not if you're spending $60 on a rock. It should last.
I've used pizza stones a while, I do not think there is any chemical taste added from the stone (this one included). For the price, this should be a lot more durable (and accurately advertised).
I saw on a PBS breads cooking show that parchment paper can be used on a stone in any hot oven, over the 420 degrees F of the Reynolds brand paper; up to 475-500 degrees F is what I saw. The paper can turn brown and black, get crisp, and still be in one piece. You throw away parchment paper after use every time anyway.
I don't reccomend buying this stone. It is over priced and not well manufactured.
To use it, I heat the oven up to 500 degrees. Still a couple hundred degrees shy of a professional pizza oven (which reach over 700 degrees), but the highest temperature a standard oven will allow. I wait another ten to fifteen minutes or so after it reaches temperature to ensure that the stone is as hot as it is going to get, then slide the pizza on using a wooden peel that I bought separately. Ten minutes later, I slip it off the stone using the peel, and it is ready! This works with premade refrigerated pizzas, frozen pizzas, and homemade pizzas. It makes a great crust, which is never soggy regardless of topping overload, and is always crisp on the bottom.
Alton Brown is a great source of information, so I have no doubt that his advice of getting an unglazed tile for this purpose will certainly work. However, rest assured that this is not a tile being resold at a high markup as a pizza surface. It has feet molded into the bottom to hold it off the surface, is a better shape and size for the oven cavity, and was manufactured for use with food, rather than being stacked on a pile of construction supplies. It is thick, but is engineered to withstand the kind of thermal stresses I've been subjecting it to for years without cracking. Sure, it is more expensive than a tile, but the cost is still low, and it really lasts. Makes great pizza, too!
So, make your own choice about whether to use a tile or not, but keep in mind that the comments about the tiles being so much better seem to be coming only from people who don't own this stone. I don't see any comments like "I bought this and wish I had a cheap tile instead."
