Hot, Cold & Just Right

Steven Chavez and Justin English's platter takes full advantage of the incredible thermal properties of soapstone to keep garlic bread, brie, and oven-baked appetizers hot, and sushi, chocolate, or cheese cool and fresh. Simply place the soapstone in the freezer in advance of serving cold food, or in the oven before serving hot food, to prevent lukewarm disappointment when your guests get to the table. Once it's prepared to the desired temperature, the wood caddy protects the platter (and your table) and incorporates handles for carrying. The natural color variations and marbling of soapstone make each platter unique, and it may be heated or chilled to any desired temperature. Made in the USA.

If you like the Oven-to-Table Entertainment Platter, you will also enjoy the Hot and Cold Soapstone Serving Platter!

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

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Measurements
Platter:15.75" L x 7.5" W x 0.5" H; approximately 6 lbs.
Wooden Caddy: 18.5" L x 9" W
Notes
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.

Steven Chavez and Justin English

In most quarries, up to 80% of all soapstone mined is deemed waste or scrap material. In an effort to regain control of the soapstone 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 this planet produces 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 have recently expanded into stainless steel, bringing the same level of sophisticated design and usefulness to entertaining ware. Their company is based in Denver where the majority of the products are handcrafted. collection

Comments about OVEN TO TABLE ENTERTAINMENT PLATTER:

It is a very attractive piece. It fits nicely into the holder. The stone is a bit heavy to handle...which show the quality but something to keep in mind if selecting as a gift. I have used it for cold items. We live in the south and when I brought the piece outside of course it began to defrost and the surface was wet as a result. May try just refrigerating next time. Have not tried heating it yet.

    I bought two of these for upcoming weddings this summer. I bought one for a friend as a house warming gift and I have one for myself. It is great for entertaining for hot or cold foods. I have it out on display when it isn't covered with crackers and cheese.

                    haven't tried these coz the two i bought are for gifts but they look cool.

                    since there was no "manual" with them, i cut and pasted the graphics and words from your site, to include in the box.
