Pampered Chef Complaint - Exploding Pizza Stones
My wife has a close friend who is a pampered chef salesperson and because of this we have a number of different pampered chef stoneware products. The previous pizza stone that pampered chef sold which is the heavy round one without the handles is a good stone and stands up to everything my wife cooks on it. But within the past few months pampered chef has discontinued these and started selling pizza stones with handles that are formed right into the stone. The company should be ashamed that they are trying to sell these to the unsuspecting public as they are of a poor quality and are liable to break on the first use. The first time my wife cooked a pizza on hers, it exploded into small shards in the oven. Her older good stone was in the oven at the same time and the two pizzas that were being cooked were both ruined. My wife has one friend who has had four of these stones break and she wasn't cooking anything frozen on them at the time. Each time the company has replaced them but they should be refunding her money instead.
She also has two other friends that have had there stones break as well and they have been replaced. Who knows how their story will end. On a positive note, all the other stoneware my wife has has been good and there have been no problems with it but stay away from these newer pizza stones!!!!!!!
