How to Take Care of a Pizza or Baking Stone
Caring for a pizza stone only requires brushing off the surface of dried crumbs or food particles after baking. There is no water, soap or scrubbing required. Wait until your oven and pizza stone have completely cooled, then carefully take the pizza stone out of the oven. The pizza stone is heavy, so be careful lifting it and brushing off excess food particles over your sink. Then return it to storage in your oven or kitchen cabinet.
Keep in mind that over time your pizza stone will likely develop some blotches of discoloration–this is a result of normal usage and you don’t need to clean it.
To best care for the KitchenAid® Smart Oven+ Baking Stone Attachment, let it cool before cleaning. You can hand wash it with soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge. Use baking soda to clean up stubborn messes and a scraper to remove baked-on foods.
