Baking Stone Alternatives???
I am currently baking in my garage using a counter top oven that is too small to hold a 'conventional' store bought baking stone.
I have read many threads here where people recommend using un-glazed quarry tiles for baking stones due to the affordability of them and that they can be used in just about any size of oven.
I have gone to both Home Depot and Lowes in search of them and the only things that come close are marble and travertine. Everything else is either ceramic or glazed tile.
Can travertine be used as a baking stone? Does it fall under the category of a quarry tile? (I am not sure what the exact definition of quarry tile is other than material that is excavated out of a quarry......) It is used extensively in building large objects :-) but I can't find anything that states that it will hold up to baking at high temps. without breaking.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
