I love my pampered chef stones. They are fairly cheap plus they have a lot of pans in stone now also.

My neighbor goes out to yard sales and can find them pretty cheap.

I have one of these. It fits in one of my ovens, leaving the other one free for other things.

We only have one oven and leave the Hearthkit on the second from bottom shelf most all of the time. Like your stove, Leo, but enjoy having an oven up more at eye level. How far are you from the good folks at Fort Riley?

I live about 2 1/2 hours from the fort. I attended K-State back in the day, so I am well familiar with Fort Riley!

My back would like my ovens at eye level too!

Sounds reminiscent of 'Fleet Week' social engineering in New York City, 'back in the day'. That came to a screeching halt some 25 - 30 years ago when certain parties objected to the fleet inviting YOUNG ladies to socialize with members of the fleet.

A while back I purchased a rectangular stone that is 3/4 in thick. Ive baked bread a couple of times. It has a shiny side and a rough side. the rough side is the baking side. I have 3/4 of an inch on both the right and left for circulation. It stays in the oven. I doubt that I will use the 14 inch round stone.

Have you considered Saltillo or other terra cotta tiles? They're quite inexpensive, ~$1-2/sqft.

I guess I'm cheep. I have a scrap piece of leftover granite from out countertops. Works great on the polished side, but next time I'll try the other side.
