Wet pizza stone

Recommended Posts

Someone forgot to bring in my pizza stone last night sitting on the side table and it poured rain for a couple hours on it overnight:banghead:

It is a cordierite stone, it seems like it absorbed a lot of water.  So now what is best course of action, leave it in sun a few days, dry in a low oven?  I'm not sure if I'm risking breaking it using it while still damp in some sort of mini steam explosion or something?

I would bring it inside, set it out of the way somewhere, and let it dry naturally at room temperature and reduced humidity. If you have another stone just use that one and let the wet one sit it out for a week or so.Thats what I did when  I soaked a very nice thick cordierite  BGE stone once, left it on a table outside and uncovered during a summer monsoon rain. Still using it years later. Arizona has a very dry climate other than monsoon season, but the heaters inside your home should provide a dry enough environment to naturally pull the moisture out of your stone.

Set it on top of the water heater.  It's usually slightly warm and dry there.  I'd leave it there for as long as you can stand to.  Maybe even make your next pizza on the grates.
