OK, I know its been said that the pampered chefs pizza stones don't hold up, and I've seen the pic on the whiz's site. But if anyone. Does use one please let me know, and to what temps you got it up to.

    Those pampered chef ones seem to be the ones that are always cracking. That might be because there are just so many of them out there, but i dunno. Mine was awful thin. The BGE stones look a bit heftier, and i guess they are made of the same refractory ceramic as the BGE itself.

    Thanks gents. I was just wondering if this was a case of a couple bad reports, or someone who got their stone too wet. 
    We have a couple of the "bar pans" (e.g rectangular stoneware pans) from PC, and use them pretty regularly, but not at egg temps, and are happy with those for reheating pizza.

    I heard of this, and I will be "upgrading" to BGE stone asap before I toast my GF's stone. I only done one pizza so far @ 400.(Was great, but didn't happen W/O pic) Looking fwd to trying different pizza doughs out there. Any other suggestions on stone other than BGE brand??
  • I have two Pampered Chef stones that I bought about 10 years ago.  I've used them in the oven at 500F and on the LBGE at 900+.  The only damage  is a small chunk out of the side from it getting dropped.  Someone once mentioned that it may be the "newer" PC stones that are cracking?

    mine was about 8 years old when it decided to split into three pieces.  wasn't wet or anything.
    just 'pop'. and now three stones instead of one

    Thanks, maybe I will be ok, or buying two in the future! It's not like the PC will be used much elsewhere now.

    My advice: don't buy Pampered Chef pizza stone.   We found ours brand new, on sale.  Used it twice before it cracked.  Had it in the oven, when we heard a big "pop".  I think we had the oven at 400 or 450.  looked in, cracked.  Waste of money.
