It is easy to maintain and clean PC9899 for its cordierite stoned construction. The durable and strong material is thermal shock resistant. Hence, you can smoothly use it in high temperatures without the fear of cracking. Also, you do not need water to soak it clean as it absorbs moisture.
It is manufactured using 100% All Natural FDA (Food and Drug Administration)-approved material. Furthermore, all ThermaBond stones are made of Pizzacraft’s ThermaBond Technology. As a result, each cordierite stone is guaranteed to resist thermal shock and distribute heat evenly within the oven.
We have tested its durability and can vouch for its build quality. For attaining the best results from this unit, preheat it at 500-degrees Fahrenheit or 260-degrees Celsius for half-hour. Before you start, dust it with cornmeal.
Baking anything other than loaves of bread or pizzas may require a thin layer of foil between the baking surface and the food item. For instance, you must wrap cookies in foil to make every bite a delight.
For washing and cleaning, scrape off excess food and leftover residue with a spatula. Now, let the stone cool down completely and wash it under hot water using a brush and a towel. We recommend you not to use soap, or its taste may follow in your next bake.
This stone starts to darken with time. But, of course, the discoloration does not affect baking and taste. Allow the stone to air-dry before storing it at standard temperature. Also, the best storage space for a pizza stone is the kitchen oven.
For baking nerds, PC9899 was revised during 2015 because its previous size was incompatible with most standard ovens.
Luckily, the new measurement of this stone is 20 x 13.5 x 6.7 inches. Hence, you can fit it in almost all standard ovens. Besides, the latest model is thicker, so you can trust its baking performance.
