Soapstone question
« on: April 26, 2013, 12:25:21 PM »
I ordered a 14" x 1 3/16" stone yesterday after old cheap one broke.  What I'm wondering is how hot is safe with these stones?   

I have an old thermador that has always run hot and when I checked it at 550F this morning it pegged a 600F thermometer.  The door locked light came on so it may think it's in cleaning mode at that setting.  The door was not locked though.

I recently purchased a soapstone and was told by the company that it was good to 1200 F I believe. I was also told that all soapstone is not =. You should be fine at your temp range.

Thanks!  I'm pretty sure I have the same brand you got based on your other thread, so I guess I am good to go.  Now if I just learn how to make a decent dough.
