Here are questions related to Cleaning a Pizza Stone.
I have 2 "pizza stones" that I've never used. I'd like to use them when the weather is cooler and let my boys learn to make pizza. However, I lost the directions, so I have no idea how to use or clean the stones. I think I can figure out how to use them, with all the available recipes, but how do I clean them and do I need to oil them or anything? Thanks!
Thanks for all the info. Mine's been sitting awhile & had spider webs on it(in the box), so I wasn't sure how to clean it. Guess I'll use hot water then bake it awhile. Glad to know not to use soap, I'd thought about doing just that! I did a search for it & couldn't find anything, now I see it archived, oh well.

Cleaning A Pizza Stone
Can anyone tell me how to clean a pizza stone? There is baked on food that I can't get off. Thanks for any suggestions.

RE: Cleaning A Pizza Stone
I have a Pampered Chef one, but think they are probably all about the same for care. I do know that you should never use any kind of soap on them. I don't even use a rag or sponge that has had soap in it. I always get a clean one.
When I have stubborn food on mine, I soak it in just plain hot water for a while and it cleans right off then with a dish cloth. The best thing you can use if you want to try and scrape it is a plastic pancake turner or the equivalent. Hope this helped some.

I leave mine in the oven when I run a cleaning cycle, it looks new once done. I don't know if this is recommended, but the first time I did this was accidental. I forgot to take the stone out. It gets cleaned like this every few months, but I do use a nylon scrubby and water after each use. (05/10/2008)
