A: Season stoneware by baking a high-fat food such as refrigerated dough for dinner rolls, biscuits or cookies, on its surface. Afterwards, greasing is usually unnecessary. As your Stoneware becomes increasingly seasoned, it forms a natural nonstick surface.
Can you bake with Stoneware?
Versatility: Stoneware is dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe, and oven-safe. It can go from the freezer to the oven. Some styles can even go under the broiler. And unlike glass, there’s no need to adjust your baking temps.
Instead, I recommend lining your baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. I prefer to use the mats– they grip onto the bottom of your cookie dough, preventing the cookies from spreading too much. These mats also promote even browning.
Do you oil Pampered Chef stoneware?
Pampered Chef stoneware is designed to be naturally non-stick so you can cook food with little to no oil. Before you season your stoneware, you’ll need to wash it by hand with water only, since soap can ruin the pan. Once it’s dry, fill the inside of your pan ⅔ full with vegetable oil.

- Spread an amount of flour or cornmeal on the pizza stone.
- Place the dough in the center of the pizza stone and pat it nicely into the shape of the pizza stone.

Do you have to preheat a baking stone?
You want the stone to preheat for at least 15 minutes before you try to cook the pizza to ensure the stone is good and hot and will cook the crust properly.
What is the purpose of a cooking stone?

How do you use a stoneware baking bowl?
The more you use your Stoneware, the more seasoned it becomes, gradually turning dark brown. There’s no need to presoak or preheat it. Simply place your food on the Stoneware, put it in the oven, and enjoy the cooking experience of a lifetime!
When using ovens with both fan-forced and conventional settings, it is best to use conventional when you are baking long and slow (like for cakes) and fan-forced for fast cooking at high temperatures.
Should I grease my cookie sheets? Unless the recipe tells you to grease the cookie sheet, resist the impulse. The extra grease causes cookie dough (which already contains a lot of fat) to spread. If you’re concerned about cookies sticking, line the cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone non-stick mat.
