  • Has anyone used soap stone?

    I am considering soap stone but I have found as yet no one who has any experience. I have 2 pieces 28" by 33" seems it would almost closely fit a 42" oven floor at 33" by 54". Or I could use as a hearth on either side of the oven opening.

    Welcome, I just looked into it but will not do it due to cost (wanna sell some soapstone?) There is a favorite link of mine that uses the soapstone for the hearth....

      I have read that the soapstone is great for pizza.....it gets hot, but I have heard that it is less good for bread. So like everything it seems it depends! If you're using it for both use the standard hearth.

        How thick is it? If it's only an inch thick you might need a layer of splits (thin fire brick) under it.
