My first attempt resulted in the dough sticking to the stone. I looked on the internet and discovered that cooks recommend the use of cornmeal flour or polenta flour to stop this happening. It makes sense because the idea of the stone base is that it absorbs moisture - the flour helps it to do so. I had some pasta flour which is a bit more grainy than regular bread flour and it has done the trick. I sprinkle some on the stone before putting the dough base and have had no problems at all.
I also cook my dough base for a few minutes on 'lower' setting, which cooks the base from underneath. I check to see if it is crisping up a little before switching to 'dual' for about three to four minutes and then add the topping. These settings produce an amazing pizza - the base I prefer is pretty thin - dough rolled out to about 4mm. It tends to puff up when heated so it is advisable to check by lifting the lid (with care). It may sound complicated but it isn't - in fact it is very enjoyable to cook pizza at the table - the machine is a good talking point. I submit this review because I would like any future purchasers not to be put off - just remember to use a grainy flour on your stone - and don't get it too wet when you wash up. I just scrape mine off and rub flour on it to get any bits off it, I've learnt it doesn't do it any good to be immersed in water.
The pizza maker BURNT a fresh pizza of mine in 4 minutes. Then I realised just how hot it was! It makes awesome pizzas in 3 minutes, evenly cooked - and nice and crisp. No soggy toppings like when you oven pizzas.
The stone baking works amazingly, it gives it an authentic Italian taste. I would definitely recommend this.
On the downside I'm not sure of the lifespan of this product. The build quality looks a bit cheap and the exposed elements look a bit scary and Heath Robinson. Cleaning it is a difficult procedure and frustrating as there are a lot of corners you cannot reach into. In operation the escaping steam and smoke is very alarming. Once or twice our timer has not reached the end on its own and it has not switched off and pinged (I wouldn't leave the machine alone whilst working) . The rubber seal on the oval window is loose fitting and doesn't seem too secure. The rubber feet are prone to falling out when we put it away (in the garage as it's a bit big for the kitchen cupboards). If you are having pizzas for more than one person you have to share the first one before it gets cold and cook the second one at the same time which isn't too relaxing (unless you buy two of these!)
Would I recommend it? Yes, as it's on its own out there in the market. But Darren has a few things to improve go attain perfection.
