for the stones, it is best to just leave it in the oven when cooking as it helps regulate the heat and cooks more evenly.

They season themselves. The more you cook, the more it seasons. DO NOT USE SOAP!
You will get a scraper with it. Run hot water over it and scrape food off. Hot water will clean it. The only thing that soap does is remove oils. You want to keep the oils for seasoning.

I have several pieces. I really like the bar pan and the deep dish baker. I use them all the time. I have 2 round and 2 rectangle stones that have seen alot of use as well. As for seasoning, it's alot like seasoning a cast iron skillet. I oiled them up and baked them in the oven. They do change color and become dark like CI. If I had the chance I would get another deep dish baker. It's like a 10" round cake pan. I make corn bread in mine, use it to bake potatoes, some veggie casseroles, and all sorts of things. Yes the cost is high but some of the stuff they have I have not seen anywhere else.

Years ago, it seemed like people in my neighborhood were having a Pampered Chef party every few months. I had one a year for about three years, so I got quite a bit of stuff for free. I have the deep dish baker, pizza stone, loaf stone, pie stone, tart pans, citrus squeezer, tube bread pans, a small dressing whisk, and some other stuff. I love the stones, I use the whisk a lot and the citrus squeezer quite a bit. I have a Chillzanne piece they don't seem to have anymore - it's round, about 18 inches across, with a lid; the bottom part has a gel inside that freezes and keeps food cold for a long time - I love it. I also have an ice cream scoop - it has an antifreeze in the handle that warms the bowl and makes it easier to scoop out ice cream. HTH.

Yes, they do. I can't remember if it's lifetime or not. I'll look it up and see.

The stoneware is guaranteed for 3 years of non-commercial use: The Pampered Chef, Ltd.

I would suggest you take a look at their online catalog and decide what you might want; that way, you won't get carried away at the party

Our Products : The Pampered Chef, Ltd.

The stones do have a guarantee but not without your sales slip so hide that slip away someplace safe!

A friend of mine and I thought it would be fun to sell and make a some extra $$$. We only did it for a short time. The product is nice but WAY overpriced.

I don't have a self cleaning oven. I have a rectangle stone and this stone. When I get home I'll take a picture of what mine look like and you'll see why I hate them.

The orders are computerized so you no longer have to worry about that. They aren't guaranteed if you drop them though, just if something happens during the cooking process and you pay the shipping back to Pampered Chef which is very expensive because of the weight of the stone.

I love their utensils, absolutely, it's just the flat stones that I think are over rated.
