About to get a LBGE and have a question about the BGE pizzastone

Hello guys

I am about to get a LBGE including platesetter, pizzastone and ......

My question is : How durable are the BGE pizzastone ? I have had lots of other pizzastones for my weber gasse, and they all break within weeks - including an original weberstone.

Greetings from Denmark

    Hi. The BGE stone is virtually indestructible. Well worth the price

    I got one with my large Egg as well, have done several pizzas now with no fuss.  Hopefully it will hold up.

    My problem with it is it's only 14"...get the 16" one from the ceramic grill'll want to make bigger pies. Same excellent quality to the stone

    well 14" suits me fine, if i get a 16" stone I would eat more and had to go on a diet 8-)
  • I have both the 14" and 16" and I use the 14" most of the time when making pizzas.

    Works great. No problems after over a year and too many pizzas to count, most done at 650 and + range.

  • Get the one from ceramic grill store. Omit your platesetter and stone from bge and get the spider adjustable rig stone and drip pan fro

    If you are on a diet, slice that pie in 6 pieces instead of 8!  That way, you can still say you only had two!

  • Although the BGE stone is good quality, I too wanted a true 16" stone.

    So I found this:

    And have been completely satisfied w/ it!!

    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

    I think my wife got ours from the Pampered Chef. We have had it for a few years now, however we have used it only once on the BGE so far with great results. We intend to try it again tomorrow.
  • i simply use the platesetter and pizzas so far have been perfect!
