The Perfect Pair

This divided platter by Steven Chavez and Justin English takes full advantage of the incredible thermal properties of soapstone to keep your culinary complements prepared at the perfect temperature. Place the first soapstone platter in the freezer, and the second in the oven to serve up decadent pumpkin pie and ice cream, or a savory quiche and fruit. Once your dishes are prepared to their desired temperatures, the wood caddy protects the platters (and your table) and incorporates handles for carrying. The natural color variations and marbling of soapstone make each platter unique, and they may be heated or chilled to any desired temperature. Made in the USA.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

About 80% of all soapstone quarried is deemed waste or scrap material. In an effort to regain control of this waste and turn it into something useful, Steven Chavez and Justin English set out to clean up the quarries and find a purpose for the discarded stone.

Soapstone is one of the most effective natural materials on earth for conducting and retaining temperature, so Steven and Justin turned to these natural properties to handcraft a beautiful line of soapstone kitchen and barware. They've recently expanded into stainless steel, bringing the same level of sophisticated design and utility to entertaining ware. Their company is based in Denver, where the majority of the products are handcrafted.

Handmade Exclusive Made in the USA
Made from
soapstone, American ash wood
Measurements
Each Platter: 7.5" L x 7.5" W
Wooden Caddy: 18.5" L x 9" W
8 lbs.
Care
Soapstone is dishwasher safe. Do not submerge wooden carrier into water; wipe clean with a cloth.

It takes about 1 hour for the stone to fully freeze; if you’re just wanting it to be chilled, 30 minutes would suffice. It begins heating up immediately when placed in an oven. After 20-30 minutes, it is extremely hot and ready to bake on (can be heated up to 500 degrees).

Handle the stone with care; do not use the stone as a cutting board, as any knife will leave a scratch.

Once chilled or heated, the stone will stay cold or warm for approximately 45 minutes.

    Third time was a charm! There were some issues with shipping. It had been reshipped twice but customer service was fantastic! My friend loved it. It was unique yet something that could be used while entertaining or eating alone.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Hot and Cold Soapstone Serving Platter:

    I was hesitant to buy this as a gift for my mother, as several other reviews had stated that the soapstone sometimes comes in a size that's too big for the tray. This was not even close to an issue with mine: the soapstone is perfectly carved and not anywhere close to being a problem for the tray. My mom will love this Mother's Day gift.

    Nice for serving, especially for a couple if one spouse/partner tends to take too long to come to the table, or if one dish is ready before others are finished cooking.

    Hot and COld soapstone serving platter

    By 

    from Highlands Ranch, CO

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about UncommonGoods Hot and Cold Soapstone Serving Platter:

    Did a trial run with it and appeared to heat the stone and cool the other. I did not try it with food yet. When I went to put the stones back in the tray they did not fit.
    We live in Denver area where the product appears to be made so hopefully we do not have to ship to a central location but can jsut drive and swap and try that at least once.
    We entertain a lot and so really wanted this to work!

    Just pop this in the oven for a few minutes, and it will keep all of your gooey from the oven treats that way.
    It's easy and useful. A great gift idea.

    Great idea that doesn't make it in execution

    By 

    from Pittsford, NY

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about UncommonGoods Hot and Cold Soapstone Serving Platter:

    I bought this as a gift and as it was packed in such a way it could be checked before giving to the recipient, I was mortified to find the stones were way to big. One would fit in and the other even with the other wedged tightly into to the frame- which isn't how it is supposed to be, didn't fit, the stones overlapped. And we're out of square. I loved the image in the catalog and the idea of the separate hit and cold SEPARATE stone pieces. This hasn't even close to what came. Also, the tray was poorly finished and not very square. If that had been the only issue, it cold have been re citified, but the stone are too big and too long by almost an inch for each. This would allow the tiles to fit and have about a 1/2 between and 1/2 in at either end like in the picture. Disappointed.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Hot and Cold Soapstone Serving Platter:

    I gave this product as a gift. As the recipient opened it, it was clear the sizes of the soapstone squares were different, and one didn't fit at all into the tray. I called customer service and they promptly sent another, but now I have 4 soapstone squares of all different sizes and thicknesses. It makes the product look poor quality. I may end up returning it as I am embarrassed to give it as a gift.
