Soapstone & Copper Pizza Stone - Kaufmann Mercantile

Handcrafted from the finest quality Brazilian soapstone, this soapstone pizza stone combines the raw beauty of natural stone with a clean, modern design. The mineral composition of each soapstone varies slightly, resulting in diverse veining, speckling, and coloration that makes each piece of cookware truly unique. The copper ring that circles the pizza stone has sturdy copper handles, adding a warm tone to the deep gray shade of the soapstone, which will darken to near-black once the stone is seasoned. This pizza stone will perfectly crisp pizzas and flatbreads, and can also be used to make roasted vegetables, crackers, breads, quesadillas, and more. The striking design easily transitions from oven to table.

Soapstone cookware has been used for centuries, dating all the way back to the Stone Age. Touted for both its versatility and beauty, early civilizations discovered that the material made an ideal cooking surface due to the extraordinary heat conducting properties it contained. Stoneware has the ability to retain heat twice as long as traditional metal cookware. These characteristics make soapstone gentle on the environment, as less energy is required to heat the cookware through and keep it hot. Stoneware also allows for food to be cooked more integrally than other types of cookware, retaining the taste, texture, and nutrients in each ingredient. Soapstone is bacteria-resistant and naturally non-stick, making it a healthy choice for those who cook with little to no oil.

Use & Care

Soapstone is a low-maintenance material that requires an initial treatment and then very little care after that. This pizza stone is designed only for use in the oven, not on the stovetop. Stovetop use can crack the pizza stone. 

Initial treatment: Place the pizza stone in a 180°C/356°F oven for 15 minutes to dry off the natural moisture of the stone and prep it to receive an oil treatment. Remove the pizza stone from the oven, taking care to not place it on a cold surface. Grease the entire surface of the pizza stone with seed oil or hydrogenated vegetable fat. Place the pizza stone back in the 180°C/356°F oven for one hour then let it cool to room temperature. Once completely cool, wash the pizza stone to remove any excess oil.

The initial treatment will not only ready the pizza stone for use, but also darken it from gray to light black.

The soapstone pizza stone can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher. Cracking or breaking can be prevented by not exposing your pizza stone to thermal shock, which happens when a hot stone is placed on a cold surface. Always heat the pizza stone slowly on a low temperature and then allow it to cool completely before washing or placing it on a cold surface. Small scratches can easily be removed with regular sandpaper or a dab of oil.

Soapstone cookware is suitable for use on gas and electric stovetops. 

Production & Design

This soapstone pizza stone was handcrafted by Cookstone, a Brazilian maker. The raw materials for the cookware are sourced directly from Brazilian mines; often the pieces chosen are remnants from larger blocks in order to reduce resource waste. Each pizza stone is formed from a piece of soapstone that a highly skilled craftsperson turns on a horizontal mechanical lathe. Once shaped, the cookware is then passed on to another artisan who fits and applies the copper detailing and handles. This process allows for customization in size and finish, while highlighting the unique nature of each piece of cookware.
