My pizza stone has lasted for years, though I never cook frozen pizzas on it. Just homemade ones. Frozen pizzas I just do like normal.

Been using a pizza stone for years now. Always toss the pizza on frozen. No cracks
I must have terrible luck, went through 3 in as many years. During the summer season I love to make a traditional margherita pizza from scratch with basil and tomatoes from the garden. Usually the 2nd or 3rd time of use it would crack at around the 500 degree mark. Switched to making them on the grill which works well but enjoyed them more out of the oven with the extra cornmeal baked into the crust from the stone. If I had room to store the thing I'd love to try out the pizza oven attachment for pellet grills but hard to justify the real estate let alone the cost for such a small/narrow window of use.

Made paella a couple days ago, and it's good shit. Made it with bone-in chicken thighs and ox shank. Cooked that marrow right into the rice, and had a nice, crispy rice bottom on the pan. Shit's pretty easy to do, and makes a mountain of food if you have the right pan.

My kids said it was delicious, and then I told them there was a bunch of bone marrow cooked in it, and they just about mutinied. Then they calmed down and had seconds. Kids are weird.

I use mine at 500 every time. They don't have the one I bought any more on Amazon. I bought it almost 3 years ago and used it a ton. No issues.

You heating the oven first then tossing it in or something? I know you have to let it come to temp with the oven or it gets shocked

dude try the quarry tile, it'll be awesome, probably less than 5bucks to cover a standard oven tray


(somehow images aren't displaying)

i just leave my quarry tiles in the oven, it's also a great way to maintain oven temp, it's a basic induction oven and i've pumped it up to 500 many times, no cracks, and if there was it'd just cost 50c to replace a tile.

i don't know if you have a menards, thats what i goto (instead of HD/lowes), but they have regular quarry tiles as well.

I was putting it in the oven before turning it on and they almost always cracked on the second or third time.

I'll give that a go. Kind of in the mood for pizza now and it's freezing outside so a good time to crank the oven to 500.

do your own search if you want


as long as you get unglazed (nude) tiles, it's just like baking on a rock.

Do you bleach them first or something, or does the heat kill it?

Not trying to shit on a deal, but just making sure peeps are forwarned.

At that MSRP, this almost certainly has the plastic geartrain all the new ones have. Can't tell if its a metal or plastic body though. Either way, this *ISN'T* the 50lb 40yr old monster workhorse your mother had/still has. Don't expect to hand it down to your kids.

Edit:
Material: Zinc, Stainless Steel

So its a metal body. Teh Googles can't make up its mind if this model number is metal or plastic/nylon gears though, so... ?roll the dice?

I do love me the accessory port and all the additional things you can make a KA do because of it; but I'm super intriged by Euro/Indian standard style:



Where the bowl rotates and beater/tool is stationary. Pretty spendy here in the US though.
