At 36.5cm long x 33cm wide x 1.5cm high the Baking Stone has a 2 in 1 function as a baking stone and eco friendly proving lid to cover dough in mixing bowls.
Made using traditional terracotta with a grey external glaze and an unglazed interior baking surface. The unglazed interior absorbs liquid, drawing away moisture from bread dough surface and resulting in crispier crusts on loaves or pizzas.
To use as a proving lid, place the unglazed surface down on top of any 29cm or smaller mixing bowl so that it forms a seal over the bowl, allowing dough to prove for the first rising without using single use bowl covers such as cling film.

If using your baking stone for the first time, hand wash in warm soapy water before seasoning.
Immerse the stone completely in clean, warm water and let it soak for up to half an hour.
Remove the stone from the water, wipe and leave it to dry naturally. This takes about 2 hours.
Rub the stone with vegetable oil to coat the baking surface entirely.
Place the stone in a cold oven and increase the heat to 250°C/ 480°F/ gas mark 9. Bake the stone for approximately 20 minutes until the oil is fully absorbed.
Remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
Repeat steps 3 to 5 again.
