Pampered Chef: Cleaning Stoneware

    I need advice: what do you say when a customer is grossed out by the idea of not washing a stone with soap to kill any bacteria that might be there? Does anyone know how you can be sure that bacteria is not growing on your stone? I have had customers that said they wash their stones with soap all the time and have no problems whatsoever...what can I say to that?

    I have run into similiar people. If you can good enough scraper and rinse it with water there shouldn't be a problem. Any bacteria on the stone is killed by the oven heat anyway.

    Unless dishwashing liquids are labeled Antibacterial they don't kill germs, all they do is contain an agent to help losen food from the dish.The stones clean so easy they don't need that. Hot water and a scraper cleans the stones just as good as using a cleaner and theres no risk of the soap bonding with the seasoning. I've been with PAmpered Chef 15 years, never a problem and stoneware has been around for centuries.

  4. I tell my customers that if this an issue for them, put their stoneware in the oven to kill the bacteria. Even after turning the oven off and eating dinner, the oven is usually still above 150 degrees - which is hotter than dishwashers.
