If you have been following my blog, you know that the central theme throughout has been how much I don’t like my food getting cold on the plate during a meal. I invented and created Dining Stones to solve that problem and have been sharing the product with the world since 2007. In addition to the standard way of heating the stones in the oven or toaster oven, I have been trying to be creative with other ways of heating the stone. During the summer, I don’t always cook a meal that uses the oven so I tested out a few other options. You may want to try these for yourself.
Top of Grill
If you have a black grill, place a 10″x10″ piece of aluminum foil on top of it to keep your stone clean and put it out at least an hour before your meal. Direct sunlight will heat the black grill and radiate that to the stones. Always use an oven mitt to remove and carry the stones.
If you are using the grill to cook your meal, it is worth the hassle of setting the stones aside each time you open the lid to rotate your grilling items. Place a hot pad down on the grill shelf to easily set your stones and to grab when you are ready to set back up on top of the grill. Always use an oven mitt to remove and carry the stones.
In The Car
We all know how hot the inside of a car can get with the windows up. That heat transfers nicely to the stone. An hour in the car should do the trick. Direct sunlight will help heat up the stone if placed in the back window. Always use an oven mitt to remove and carry the stones.
