How to use your lava stone
The lava stone used in all our CuisineStone products is guaranteed to be the most quality lava stone found in Europe. Perfect for cooking your food!
Heat your CuisineStone to between 280-350° Celsius (approx 540-660° Fahrenheit) for optimal use and you will soon find the perfect temperature for you to enjoy your food, exactly as you like.
Heating your CuisineStone can be achieved by popping it in the oven for 40mins, under the grill in 30-40mins, on the hob or stove – either gas or electric – for 20-30 minutes or even on the barbecue for 30-40 minutes . Needless to say the stone will not go up higher than the maximum heat of the chosen method so, for example, a stone left in a 240°C oven for 3 hours will still only heat to 240°C, so if this is the limit of your oven, one of the other methods will give you a little more sizzle. Don’t worry about overheating your CuisineStone. (you’d have to pop it into a volcano for that)
To check whether the stone is hot enough following heating, place a teaspoon of water carefully on the centre of the stone. If the stone is fully heated this will instantly sizzle and visibly evaporate after 10 seconds. If this does not happen you can continue heating for a further 5 minutes and repeat the sizzle test.
(Handle with care, this is a hot baby by now!)
Once it’s ready – COOK LIKE CRAZY!
WE’RE SURE YOU REALISE THIS, BUT WE HAVE TO WARN YOU THAT THE LAVA STONE WILL BE VERY HOT ONCE IT’S HEATED UP. BE CAREFUL!! WE DON’T WANT NO BURNS BRO
