That's OK, Michael. I'll glue it back together and send it back!
Ceramics can withstand extreme heat without harm. I have a Pampered Chef stone and leaving that in the oven during a cleaning cycle works for it.
I'm talking about a variety of food stains either from pizza components or other stuff I cook in the oven that spill over. I don't always remember to turn the stone upside down when I'm not using it to keep the pizza side clean between uses.
If you're using unglazed quarry tiles, it should work for them as well, but I've never tried it.
