Vesuvo baking stone V38301,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VESUVO V38301 pizza stone / bread baking stone for oven and grill / 38 x 30 x 1.5 cm / with pizza shovel and pizza flour (Kitchen & Home)
I have had this baking stone for only a short time and whilst I have had some lovely pasties cooked on it,it does have a really bad flaw. The fat or oil from the pastry gets onto the stone, regardless of having a flour base and this leeches into the stone causing it to become an oil stone. The result of this is that the stone throws out clouds of foul smelling smoke which stinks my kitchen out. Pies or pastries sometime spill out, even for the best chefs but once any spillage or oil gets unto the stone then the danger of a smelly cooker and kitchen is inevitable. I would be interested to know if any other cooks have fallen foul of this problem?Vesuvo V38301 Pizza / Bread Baking Stone Set for Oven and Grill 38 x 30 cm Rectangular with Pizza Shovel and Pizza Flour

Real baking stones are porous by nature and thus unsuitable for cooking pastry ... it sounds like you'd be better off with a cast iron or thick steel "stone" if you want the same heat-retaining effect while cooking pasties etc. Anyway, it's a bit harsh giving a one-star review to a pizza/bread stone because it's no good for pies and pasties!

Yes I agree but I was baking pasties which are baked in the oven. If this stone is not suitable for that purpose then it would be nice to see it stated on the products advertisement. I am not a chef so I am not up to scale on these matters.
