White vs black plate setter

I noticed on some of the photos of the eggfest that the plate setters were actually white. Please tell me that this was because they were new. I haven't seen a white one since I took mine out of the car after buying it.


  • Janet,
    Sorry for my ignorance, I am a fairly new to the Big Green "Eggperience", what would you use this plate for?

    Brenda,[p]The plate setter came to life for Eggers a couple of years ago as a discovery made by Kathy Gocek while walking through a ceramic supply store. Over time, Eggers have used the plate setter in unique ways but it primarily boils down to two main uses:[p]1) the plate setter, in combination with a pizza stone, is used to provide a "hearth type" environment to bake such foods as pizza and breads.
    2) either standing right side up, or upside down, the plate setter is used to shield the food from direct exposure to the fires of lump during a cook. This is called an "indirect" cook.[p]Below is a link to a picture of for baking pizza and breads.[p]Hope this helped.[p]Puj
