I recently ran across this thread on Chow.
Thanks for posting the thread. And the pictures do look great. Showing that the pizza apparently cooks from the top AND the bottom. But I read through the entire thread and not one of those people actually say it produces better pie (except for the guy who built it.) Not one person on that thread has tried the thing out except the guy who made it. They are only responding to the pictures. I would need more than that before I would be willing to plunk down almost $300 for the contraption.
(the thread being referred to is this thread!)
I get a lot of people wanting to know where there is a forum where they can read what others are saying about the 2stone. I consider this forum to be the premier site on the internet for aspiring pizza makers.
The depth of knowledge and the friendly and helpful atmosphere here is hard to beat.
As you remember I first gave this forum a sneak peak on the 2stone late last year. We have come along way since then. I want to thank all of you who have faithfully posted your reviews along with pictures of the pies you have made. Not only that but you have tirelessly answered a lot of peoples questions.
There are now an incredible large number of forum members who have and use the 2stone. I have exchanged many emails with you and have spoken to many of you on the phone several times.
I have had more fun and pleasure watching many people improve on their pizza making with the use of the higher heat from the 2stone. It's something I never really fully comprehended until I experienced it for my self. The Holy grail is of coarse the wood burning oven, but the 2stone is a great step in that direction, and those of you who use it know that it truly does deliver on the high heat bake. There are also many people who don't have the living accommodations needed for a WFO or may have plans on moving and can't see leaving such an investment behind.
I have been working on www.2stone.ning.com
for a while (time permitting) where I can organize all of the 2stone information. Pizzamaking is the PREMIER GO TO PLACE for pizza related information and advice. People who come to this site are simply amazed at the level of knowledge and expertise that you find here.
I, like many of you owe most of my pizza making improvements to this forum. In setting up the 2stone friends site, my goal was and is to further increase the level of service related to the 2stone, and to add to and improve on the overall 2stone experience. I hope this also will reduce the commercial nature that this thread may seem to be taking on.
I would like to provide a better organization of facts for people such as the person who posted on the Chow forum and claims that nobody besides me actually uses the 2stone. I hope to be able to do that on the 2stone friends site. I will continue to support this thread and forum, but hope that this will be an improvement.
I have had many forum members ask me when I'm going to have another sale or special like we offered before for the Pizzamaking forum members. So I am now happy to announce that we are going to have another drawing and give away another pizza grill or $200.00 towards any other 2stone product.
This means that if you already own a pizza grill you will be able to upgrade to the oven with an oven casing, or if you already have an oven you can apply the 200.00 towards the 2stone cart.
All you need to do is go to.... www.2stone.ning.com
..... and sign up before May 17 at 8:00 pm. The drawing will be held shortly thereafter and will be announced no later than Sunday night. (The details are posted in the events section)
By the way Sourdoughgirl, are you also flourgirl!!??
