pizza stone with handles--opinions on all clad version
Hi: I'm in the market for a pizza stone, and I've just noticed that All Clad makes a soapstone pizza stone set that is set into a stainless steel handle. It looks nifty, though it is not cheap ($99 on the web, $119 at William Sonoma). The thing that I like about it is that that the handles would make it easier to get in and out of the oven, to serve on, and you could use it as a pretty handsome tray for appetizers or cheeses (I'm a bit storage space constrained, so I'm always looking for double duty tools). My only worry is that All Clad says that it is only safe to 450 degrees, and I always cook my pizza at 500. Any thoughts on this purchase? Thanks.
