Emile Henry Flame Pizza Stone : The Emile Henry Flame Pizza Stone superbly cooks brick oven style pizzas in home ovens and on outdoor grills. Innovative proprietary Flame technology allows the stone to work directly on gas, charcoal, natural wood or electric grill cooking surfaces up to 750 F. The 14" ceramic round stone goes in conventional and convection ovens and under the broiler and fits a standard 25 1/2" round grill. The Emile Henry pizza stone absorbs moisture from the pizza dough while distributing heat evenly throughout the pizza so the pie doesn't burn on the bottom before the toppings have cooked. A special micro-crazed glazing ensures crispy well-baked crusts, and unlike other pizza stones, this one leaves no food, stains or odors. You can cut pizzas right on the stone without damaging the surface. The Emile Henry pizza stone heats up in about 15 minutes compared to nearly an hour on some stones. Lightweight with large handles for easy carrying, the stone is naturally nonstick and dishwasher-safe. Founded in 1850 by the Henry family in France's mineral-rich burgundy clay region, today Emile Henry is the largest manufacturer of ceramic ovenware in France. The Flame process is a proprietary manufacturing process that is more resistant to thermal shock, mechanical shock or chipping and crazing than other ceramic products, including porcelain, stoneware and earthenware.

I love the fact that this is a perfect fit for the shelf in my oven. I just received it so tested it out with pizza. Great job of evenly baking the pizza. The stone has side handles, so no more trying to get the pizza off if a stone and onto the kitchen table; just grab the whole pizza stone by the built in handles, put on the table, and cut it right on the stone! The surface is made to handle even the cutting of the pizza! The color of the stone blends in with my kitchen, so was used as a serving piece! Great idea! I look forward to bread making (and slicing) on it! It is even designed to go on the grill! Can't wait to try pizza on the grill once our weather permits! Easy clean up! I really like this product. Well worth the cost because of its versatility!
