The Emile Henry baking stone boasts of a broad list of features. It is made of ceramic, natural material. Thus it is environmentally friendly. Unlike most baking stones, the Emile Henry baking stone is easy to clean. In fact, it can be washed in a dishwasher with nothing to worry about. Its design ensures that soap residues do not stick on its surface like with the traditionally pizza stones which are a bit of a pain to clean. All you need is soap and a towel, and you are ready to go. Very little elbow effort is required to scrub off sticky crumbs.
One of the most distinctive features of the Emile Henry stone is the fact that it can withstand very high temperatures. Personally, I have used it up to highs of 750 degrees, and it works just fine. Most baking stones only withstand temperatures of up to 450-500 degrees. It is recommended you preheat the stone when baking pizza or bread.


The Emile Henry baking stone is convenient for your oven, but more surprisingly can also be used on a grill. It is compatible with a broad range of grills from charcoal grills to gas and electrics ones as well as natural wood. It can be used under the broiler too.

When it comes to handling, Emile Henry got it right. The stone has well carved built-in handles that make it’s user-friendly. It is easier to hold and carry around, unlike traditional porous baking stones. It is easy to grip using silicone mitts when hot.

The size is just mind-blowing, at 18 inches by 14 inches, you can bake just about any size of pizzas. This implies that you do not have to worry about the accuracy of how you place your pizza on the stone as it is with most other baking stones. The baking stone is big enough to accommodate three pita bread.
The quality of the pizza, bread and cookies is significantly improved. With this stone, you produce more crunchy cookies and pizza. Bread comes out crispy and more evenly baked. I have produced some of the best homemade pizzas with this stone than I have ever made on my other porous pizza stones.


The only drawback you will get with this stone is that it takes a little bit longer to cool off especially if you are preparing cookies. This is drawback because with cookies you have to let the stone cool before you can place the next bunch of cookies otherwise you will melt the dough. The good thing is that the stone is big enough to accommodate many cookies at a go and thus the waiting time doesn’t feel as much of a bother.

What Not To Do!

The Emile Henry baking stone is hard to crack but DO NOT try placing cold pizza on the preheated stone. You might be inviting trouble in your kitchen.
