Axner Pricing
« on: July 08, 2013, 03:48:46 AM »
For those of you that purchased kiln shelves from Axner, do you know the final price you paid?  I've recommended these to a few people now, but was always curious how much the 'packing fee' they mention drives up the total price.

That's about what mine was for a 20" x 20" x 1" size to the Chicago metro area. Take care!

16x 16 x 3/4 shipped to Maryland was about $41 or $42 total cost.

Thanks, everyone.

16x 16 x 3/4 shipped to Maryland was about $41 or $42 total cost.

So, between the packing fee and shipping, the price basically doubled.  Hmmm...

It did, but I still think its a decent deal and it arrived in one piece. It is a much better stone than the one my wife got from william sonoma for 50% more.

No problem Scott. Just one more point of comparison,  a 16 x 16 x 5/8 stone (thinner) from California pizza stone is $65 shipped to me. I had looked at them too before buying from axner.

I love my W&S stone, if the Axner is that much better, I gotta have one! When I bought my W&S stone they came with a lifetime replacement warranty should it ever crack, don't know if they or anyone else still offers that.

The WS stone, at least the one my wife got,  is too thin.  The 3/4" axner stone holds the heat much better and browns the crust better.

My W&S is probably 1/2", but it still does the job. Maybe the new WS stone are made by someone else, mine is at least 10 years old, and I believe they were made by Old Stone for WS back then.

Even at 1/2", the 3/4" axner is 50% thicker . . . thermal mass and all that science stuff.

No,no,no....they are very reasonable. And they bubble wrapped/packed my 2 22in.'ers like they were going off to Afghanistan or somethin.

I paid $47 for 2 round 5/8 16" cordierite stone
shipping was free as it was within Florida.

The packing was very good, tightly packed in bubble wrap and double cardboard.

I highly recommend this company...they don't play around.  ;)
