Baking stone/pizza stone followup: this past Wednesday the New York Times reviewed a new Emile-Henry product, a 14" pizza stone which can handle up to 700 degrees of heat. Now you are talkin' my language. They're $50 thru either Emile-Henry or better still thru Sur la Table. The latter right now is offering free freight (but for one week only). Money where my big mouth is, I just ordered one. I'm really happy with the other EH Flame products I own, so I don't see it as a big risk. If you live near a Sur la Table store, go check it out.
