stones/tiles 4 baking--where to buy, pdx area
I'm in a tough spot: my limited income is screaming at the prices of "baking/pizza" stones, and I can't seem to find quarry tiles anymore!
Anyone have a inexpensive alternative? I really can't go over $20-$30, once s&h is added, for online.
I know there's alot of members in the Portland (OR) metro area--any recomendations around town?
** 4 NOV 2009: update!
I ended up buying a pizza stone from : webstaurantstore.com
It was affordable (even with shipping) and it's working ok. I can only use it in my bottom oven (standard sized)...but until this week, was still searching for tiles I could use in my upper oven (much smaller in size).
I finally found a place in Vancouver WA (TILE OUTLET, on Minnihaha/63rd)(by my daughter's) which could get the 6x6 unglazed quarry tiles.
I bought 8, with shipping (Had to leave for home that day) it's under 15.00. they should arrive at my door by Friday.
I had 'googled' daltile (which is the company I found in my searches which produce them) carried at several places in the Portland area...didn't inquire at any for pricing, as I found what I wanted at the vanc. place.
thanks to EVERYONE who's chimed in with sage advice on this matter! I'ts GREATLY appreciated by this baker~
