"I purchased a salt stone (square) from you during Americade week in Warrensburg. That same evening, I decided to try it out. I heated it in the oven as you instructed, and then removed it to a safe spot. I then laid shrimp, mildly seasoned with pepper and oil, upon the stone. By the time I completely covered the stone it was ready to turn the shrimp, and by the time I finished turning them, it was almost time to remove them. What a fantastic way to cook! I was complimented all evening by my guests, so much so that I bought more shrimp for the following night. I have since used it to cook salmon and scallops with equal praise afterward. The stone emits a gentle salt flavor but does not overpower the other spices. I will be using this forever. I am sorry I didn't purchase the larger one. Thank you."
