As well as all of this, cooking with steak stones requires absolutely no fat or oil, which makes it a far more healthier alternative than practically every other cooking method available.
Food can be cooked, served and eaten on steak stones. Due to the fact that they retain heat very well, it means that the steak stone will remain hot for approximately 20 to 40 minutes after being removed from the oven. This also reduces the possibility of food going cold once it has been removed from the oven, which makes it an ideal method of cooking for busy restaurants.
