HELP: Appropriate size Baking Stone
Oven Interior measures 16 inches font-back; 24 inches side-side; I'd like to purchase a baking stone - unglazed quarry tiles or one single slab cut to exact size.
1. Could you please recommend the largest sized baking stone that I would purchse for my oven? Please include the recommended thickness range in your responses.
1a.I will be baking both bread and pizzas - would the thickness of the stone be the same for both?
2. Would I need 2 sets - one for the bottom of the oven and another for the top?
3. Sides - Please recommend dimensions for the two that I will use on the sides. Will they have the same font-back measurement as (1) above? What would the height be? Would the thickness be the same as above?
4. For the gas oven: Would I place the stone(s) on the floor of the oven(the coils are directly under it) or would I place it on the bottom rack?
Thanks in advance for your reponses. I'd love to purchase these today!
