Stone on top of the original?
« on: April 11, 2017, 06:59:24 AM »
Hello,

Got a stone from fornace saputo arriving soon for in my GMG 4040 oven.
Hoping to be able to bake at max temp without a burned pizzabottom.
Should i put the stone on top of the old stone that was in the oven already or should i take the old out?
i think i read something about the biscotto having to be supported over the whole bottom of the stone.


thanks,

Steef

I tried both with my Effeuno, i.e. biscotto on top of the old stone and alone, and now only use the biscotto. I was also hoping to have the bottom element on full blast, but when I do, I will burn the underside of the pie.

Thanks for your reply.
Is the stone only supported on the sides with no troubles?

The biscotto I purchased fits (and sits) perfectly on the support for the default refractory stone.

had it on top of original like attached photo.
Decided to try without the original stone first after all.
The stone worked like a champ, the bottom was not burned at full throttle.
Now i can consider hacking the top thermostate.
