What Makes Pampered Chef Stoneware Unique?

In summary, Pampered Chef offers stoneware made by various companies to meet their specific standards. Sassafras was the original manufacturer but no longer produces their stones. Other stoneware sold in stores may not be ideal for baking, as they can absorb oils and may not meet quality standards. When considering other stoneware options, factors such as location of manufacture, warranty, material, suggested uses, and recipe support should be taken into consideration. To desoap a stone, a paste of baking soda and water can be used, or a piece of nylon net with baking soda can be used to scrub

Our stones are made by several different companies. All of these companies
must manufacture our stones to meet our specifications in terms of size,
material, quality, etc. We have multiple vendors so that we can meet the
demands of our customers and consultants. Many of our stones are exclusive
due to the shape or the style (New Traditions) of the stone.

Sassafras was the original manufacturer of our stones -- up until 1996, many
of our stones said "Superstone" or "Sassafras" instead of "The Pampered
Chef". Sassafras does not currently make any of our baking stones.
Sassafras stones are sold at some kitchen stores and department stores.

Many of the other baking stones sold in stores are made of "kiln brick"
rather than clay. Kiln brick is very porous and will absorb oils. The oil
absorbed can burn or smoke when used in the future. As such, stones made of
kiln brick should be used only for non greasy baking, such as pizza and
bread -- certainly not cookies or crescent roll crusts. Other clay stones
sold in stores may be made in the far east and may not meet quality
standards in
terms of material (purity of clay, etc.) or manufacturing. Other
earthenware vessels (such as Romertopf) are made of materials which require
pre-soaking and are not designed for traditional baking (breads, cakes,
pizza, etc.). Others require pre-heating, which makes it difficult to
assemble a pizza, etc.

When looking at other stones, the following should be considered:

Location of Manufacture
Warranty (many have no warranty)
Material
Suggested Uses
Recipe Support

Desoaping a StoneTo desoap any stone, mix baking soda and water to make a paste. Smear it on, let it set 15 minutes and then scape it off. It will take the soap with it.

Stone ExpertPampered Chef Stoneware is made from natural clay that is mined in the United States. The clay is then processed and molded into various shapes and sizes, such as round baking stones, rectangular baking stones, pizza stones, and more. The stones are then fired at extremely high temperatures to create a durable and heat-resistant cooking surface. This process also makes the stones non-porous, meaning they will not absorb oils or odors from food.One of the key benefits of using Pampered Chef Stoneware is its ability to distribute heat evenly. The stones retain heat well, allowing for even cooking and browning of food. They also retain heat for a longer period of time, keeping your food warm after it has been removed from the oven.Another advantage of Pampered Chef Stoneware is its versatility. It can be used in a variety of cooking methods, including baking, roasting, and grilling. It can also be used in the microwave, freezer, and dishwasher. The stones are also safe to use under the broiler, as long as they are not preheated.One of the most common questions about Pampered Chef Stoneware is whether or not it needs to be seasoned before use. The answer is no. The stoneware has a natural non-stick surface and does not require any seasoning. However, it is recommended to lightly oil the surface before the first use to help with the natural non-stick process.To clean Pampered Chef Stoneware, it is recommended to use hot water and a nylon scraper or brush. Avoid using soap or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the surface of the stone. If food is stuck on the stone, soak it in hot water to loosen it before scrubbing. It is also important to avoid extreme temperature changes, such as placing a hot stone in cold water, as this can cause the stone to crack.Pampered Chef Stoneware also comes with a limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. If your stone cracks or breaks during normal use, it can be replaced for a small fee.In addition to the quality and durability of the stoneware, Pampered Chef also offers a wide variety of recipes and tips for using the stones. These can be found in their cookbooks, on their website, and through their network of consultants.In conclusion, Pampered Chef Stoneware is a high-quality, versatile, and durable cooking surface that can enhance your cooking experience. With proper care
