The Proper Cleaning of a Pizza Stone

Needed Tools

You probably already have everything you’ll have to clean the pizza stone. A pizza stone cleaning tool should be small enough to glide beneath stuck-on food and rough enough to scour the stone clean.

How to Clean Your Pizza Stone of Burned Food

  • Some burned bits of food may decide to come off your pizza stone no regardless of how hard you brush or scrape it. Try a deep cleaning of your oven as you give up hope; it’s a method that typically works.
  • Preheat the oven to 500°F.
  • In the oven, place the pizza stone just on highest shelf.
  • Allow an hour for the stone to bake.
  • Check your stone on a regular basis to determine whether grease bubbles have formed and exploded.
  • Start your oven’s auto-clean cycle after the bubbling has subsided. If your stone begins to smoke, don’t be concerned. It may emit a lot of smoke, depending on how much fat and burned food is on your stone. The charred food should begin to burn away during this stage.
  • Wait for the oven completely cool down that once clean cycle has finished
  •  Once the pizza stone has cool, remove it from the oven and wash it cleaned.

You could use medium-grit sandpaper if a thorough clean cycle does not clean your stone. On the other hand, sandpaper may be used in an urgent situation. Otherwise, you risk permanently damaging your pizza stone if you scrape off only the burnt food but not any additional things.

  • Scraping any leftover food particles with the scraper might also assist.
  • When scraping the oven floor or the pizza stone plate, be cautious not to scratch them.
  • For extra thorough cleaning, use the wire brush.
  • Use a moist cloth-wrapped brush or a professional chimney cleaning brush to clean the chimney.
  • Brush your chimney twice to make it look even more appealing.
  • Raise the heat slightly to dissolve greasy encrustations on the oven floor.
  • After that, switch off the oven and then let it cold before attacking the stains with regular soapy water, as well as vinegar for persistent stains.
  • Rinse, wash, repeat, as the adage goes. If you don’t want a chemically dirty taste baked into your pizza, stay away from detergents.
