The SteakStones Sizzling Starter Set is a great introduction to the benefits and features of Hot Stone Cooking.
Perfect for a sizzling selection of Scallops and King Prawns with some chilli sauce and lemon mayonnaise or perhaps some mixed meat and fish skewers, the dry heat of the stone sears in the natural moisture and flavours of your chosen cut and with no oils or fats required it’s a fresh, fun and healthy way to cook every bite to perfection.
The Lava Stone used in all SteakStones products is guaranteed to be the best available product from which to enjoy hot stone cooking. The stones require heating to between 280-350° Celsius (approx 540-660° Fahrenheit) for optimal use and you will soon find the perfect temperature for you to enjoy your steak, exactly as you like. Heating your SteakStones can be achieved in the oven in 40mins, under the grill in 30-40mins, on the hob or stove – either gas or electric – for 20-30mins or even on the barbecue. Needless to say the stone will not go up higher than the maximum heat of the chosen method so, for example, a stone left in a 240°C oven for 3 hours will still only heat to 240°C, so if this is the limit of your oven, one of the other methods will give you a little more sizzle.
To check whether the stone is hot enough following heating, place a teaspoon of water carefully on the centre of the stone. If the stone is fully heated this will instantly sizzle and visibly evaporate after 10 seconds. If this does not happen you can continue heating for a further 5 minutes and repeat the sizzle test. Your SteakStones Lava Stones cannot be overheated using standard household ovens, but we do not recommend exposure to direct heat i.e. gas or electric hobs, for longer than 40mins.
