I've never used Stoneware before, and was pleasantly surprised with this pizza stoneware. It is large enough to stretch the pizza dough out to the corners, and after Ice chimed it and put it on my stove, the hot Stoneware continues to keep the pizza hot. It cooks evenly, the crust is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I know this will last a long time and I'm so happy with my purchase, because I love making homemade pizza & this makes it easy and looks so elegant!
