I love my stone. I cook anything on it that would go on a cookie sheet and you should definately never use soap on it. The first stone I got came from Pampered Chef and it was my favorite. I had it for a couple of years when I set it on top of the stove and accidently turned the burner on underneath it instead of pre-heating my oven. I heard a huge explosion and ran to the kitchen to find my stone blown to smitherines and spread out all over the kitchen. I almost cried. We use it pretty much every day to cook something.
