Granite Baking Stone Gift Set
Our beautiful granite baking stone is a must-have if you love baking bread at home! But why stop at bread when there are so many other things you can use the stone for including:
- Homemade pizza
- Sourdough loaf
- Garlic bread
The stone promotes even heat and holds that heat well which allows for an even, steady bake which you won’t get from a regular baking sheet. You will find that the stone also absorbs extra moisture that will make your bake crispier.
You need to let your stone heat up in the oven while you’re preheating the oven -placing a cold stone in a hot oven can result in potential cracking.
The stone will fit comfortably in a standard size oven (see product dimensions below).
You can also use the stone as a pastry stone, Knead, roll and shape to your hearts content with our fabulous hand-crafted granite pastry board. Thanks to its smooth, cool surface, granite makes the perfect pastry board.
You can use both sides of the stone so it is perfect for serving hot and cold food. You can also use it as a chopping board.
The heat resistant gloves allow you to remove the stone from the oven safely. The silicone gloves will protect your hands up to 500C / 932°F and give you a good grip on the object. In fact, this makes these gloves safer than most standard oven mitts.
