Additionally, it is manufactured with proprietary heat technology. To make sure you have a very durable commercial oven pizza stone.
Therefore, you can expect to have very good heat distribution from the core of the pie all the way to the edges. And, your product will be very adept at heat retention.
Another important point as with most Pizzacraft products is the versatility of being able to use it in both oven and grill.
This is very useful not only at home but if you intend on using it for commercial reasons as well.
Thus, imagine having a restaurant where you offer both oven and grilled pies(which is not too common compared to oven ones).
As long as you have adequate models.
The dimensions of this commercial pizza oven stone is 16 x 16 x 0.6 inches. Additionally, it weighs 8.76 pounds.
It is very easy to use and follows the usual Pizzacraft standards.
Mainly, make sure you preheat the oven to at least 250 C degrees. While placing the model in the middle of the oven.
Whereas in the grill, you would heat the grill at the same temperature but you would heat the model for at least 30 minutes.
Ideally, you will dust the product with some cornmeal before placing your meal on the product. Nevertheless, it is not necessary.
You’ll then move your dish onto the product using the adequate pizza peel.
In regards to cleaning, you can simply scrape off any crumbs or leftovers with some form of spatula.
After allowing the stone to cool(never forget this crucial point!) run it under warm water while simultaneously scrubbing it with a soft brush.
Although it may be obvious to mention, do not use soap to wash the model.

Finally, make sure you air dry the product and keep it either inside your oven or your grill until further use.
