Fibrament stone - curing
« on: October 10, 2009, 06:37:56 AM »
Hi,
just received my fibrament stone today and have started the drying out process. Does anyone know if the funny odor/wet concrete smell I am experiencing (also mentioned in the instruction leaflet) eventually will go away? Or will it always be like this during heat-up?

It's normal, it will go away once the stone is seasoned.

Just to reaffirm what Bill & Matthew said. The curing smell will dissipate fairly quickly & you shouldn't notice any odour after the initial dry out period.

Good to know - thanks for your responses! - btw anyone have experience with cracking their firbrament stones? I know you´re supposed to avoid any liquid spillage on the stone, but I know that sooner or later some juices from the mozzarella or sauce will end up on the stone due to limited handling skills. I have cracked quite a few of my previous poor quality stones..

I've spilled plenty on mine and have had no issues over the last few years.  I can see some hairline cracks,  but they are superficial.  remember to heat that for a while,  they are thicker that some of the cheapies. -marc
