Care and Maintenance

After unpacking your Fredstone it is ready to use. 

NOTE: THE ST0NE MUST NOT COME INTO DIRECT CONTACT WITH WATER, AND SHOULD BE KEPT DRY AND STORED INDOORS. 

Due to Fredstone being made of porous materials, it is recommended to use either baking paper, an aluminum baking plate, or a reusable silicone mat to protect the surface of the stone against moisture.

When used for baking pizza it is recommended to bake directly on the stone.

If any toppings (e.g. cheese) is burned on the stone, it can easily be removed with fine grade sandpaper (grit 240). Never use sharp objects to clean the stone.

If the stone is used for other purposes than baking (e.g. to cook a roast pork) it is important to use baking paper, or to wrap the stone in tin foil to protect the stone from hot grease.

It is recommended to keep the grill lid closed as much as possible, when baking or cooking, in order to maintain a stable temperature within the grill. Constant opening of the grill will result in the loss of precious heat, longer cook times, discoloration of baked goods, and an undesirable result.
