Food poisoning anyone????






I have a pizza stone and I do wash mine after it has cooled down.

I wash it in hot soapy water and then put it back into the warm oven to dry out.

Re: pizza stone - how to use

I don't worry much about washing mine either.. i take a board scraper to it when it is cool but other than that it is fine...I preheat my oven with the stone in it for a good half hour to 45 mins at 475 to 500 F. If anything can survive that , it won't be cleaned off by a bit of soapy water.  whistle

Re: pizza stone - how to use

Cuban Chef, would you mind switching of the CAPS LOCK? It would be so much easier to read (and more polite).

Well, the mold on cheese you refer to is different from the mold that happens from not cleaning dishes which can be a serious health hazzard.

I admit that the scraping off suggested by Ashen might be enough, but I rather wash mine when I have stuff spilled on it (not if I baked something dry on it or nothing went over the crust). There are people who claim that you should never wash a teapot either, but I prefer mine cleaned.

You can do whatever works for you and that is totally fine, but washing does not do any harm if anyone prefers to do that. Just make sure that the stone is cooled before you do and dry before you use it again.

Re: pizza stone - how to use

but the traditional " forno a legna " for the pizza .. must be cleaned every night ... not for any particular " healty " reason ... as far as i know ... just for to be ready to be charged with the new wood the day after ... other way will be full of ash soon ... wich is required for the bottom of the pizza ... but not too much ... so ... u must clean it ... but just brush it ... no soap really ... what you wont never clean is the coffe moka  wink
