When I had one I just left it in the oven. But I don't bake a lot. Husband baked bread and pizza and we just left it on the bottom shelf of the oven.

After using my pizza stone I put it back in the box that it came in. This way I know it's protected and nothing will happened to it.

Maybe I'm too well trained that everything should be kept in its place, but I store mine in the skinny cupboard with my sheet pans and wire racks. It's round, so it just rolls in and out. The only problem is that I forget about it while letting it cool down after using, so it usually ends up getting put away the next time I use the oven... and then only if I see it before preheating the oven and beginning the entire cycle again.

Maybe I should take Andy's suggestion and just leave it n there.

One comment - if you do use a stone, let the oven preheat longer than usual - much longer than the automatic signal tells you it's ready. I have one recipe that tells me to preheat the stone for 45 minutes before putting the bread in.

We keep ours on the bottom rack of the oven.

I have a question too. I got one from my mother. A used one. And I never knew what I was supposed to use it for. She called it a pizza stone so I only thought that far. Haha I'm so going to start putting dinner rolls on it. My mother is now gone so I can't ask her but how do u clean it. Mine has a couple cool aid stains where it sat on counter and got moved from one side of counter to the next because it was such a sore eye and I had no idea what to do with it where to put it. But any cleaning tips. I'm going to store it in my oven now :) thanks everyone

If you have a self-cleaning oven, leave it in there for a cleaning cycle. Then brush of any ash and you're ready to go. Never wash it with soap.

I store it on the bottom of the oven upside down so the cooking surface doesn't get dirty from other spills. Then Just turn it over when you want to use it.

The instructions that came with my stone suggested using a green pad and water for cleaning. If that doesn't do it they suggest going to a belt sander.

I never thought of turning it upside down to store in the oven.

I keep a piece of foil over it. The foil can catch any accidents and be discarded.
