Les, I tried SStone in the entry and liked the convenience but not the color. In the end I went with a warmer colored Granite and have been happy that I did. It's easy clean and looks better with my countertops. I've seen no degradation of the Grainite, and since it was a cutoff from someone's counters, the cost was the effort of asking. Fabricating it to the shape I needed was a snap with the HF10.

Chris,

No problems with cracking or spalling?

None so far.. Early on I wondered if I might see this sort of thing, but it hasn't happened so far. It does get hot but I guess it doesn't push the limits.. When I installed my stone I sloped it toward the front of the oven to drain away from the interior and when I was playing with the SStone, I thought about channeling and canting the stone, think drain board.

Oh and I did include a heat break in the floor, I learned that a single piece of SStone that reaches into the oven is really a heatsink..

+1 on soapstone stains - I put it in my entryway and it does get oil stains. But they clean up easily with a bit of kitty litter. I cleaned up the spot in the picture below with no problem. And my understanding is (have not tried this yet) that you can seal it with mineral oil to prevent staining. This would probably work in an entryway, but not in an oven.

FWIW, I got my entryway stone cut by a countertop installer for $75. That seemed high but was the best price I could find.
