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 India.

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.

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 from
soapstone, American ash wood
Measurements
Platter:15.75" L x 7.5" W x 0.5" H; approximately 6 lbs.
Wooden Caddy: 18.5" L x 9" W
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.

I purchased three of these as Christmas gifts for my brother, mother, and mother in law. My mother in law's family is in construction and I'm sort of embarrassed to give it to her because of the quality of the wood peice. The builders just glue it together, but it's poorly glued together. My brother and mother may not notice the quality as much. Two of the three arrived in good condition but the third was broken because the glue did not hold. Uncommongoods is sending us a replacement

It's beautiful and she loves it, but it is almost too heavy for her to lift the centerpiece by herself and it came with NO instructions. She had no idea (until I told her) that the stone could be used heated in the oven or cooled from the fridge (which was the whole point of my giving it to her...). Also, no information on how to clean it. It's lovely, but it would be nice if there wasn't so much guesswork for my gift recipient.

    This piece sits out on our kitchen island all of the time but it swings into gear for dinner parties. We love using it and the fact that we can help keep things hot or cold without a cord and electricity. I'm a huge fan of this product!

            Best Uses

              Comments about UncommonGoods Oven-to-Table Entertaining Platter:

              I received this item as a gift. The first time it arrived, the stone slat was broken. I called customer service and they were apologetic and sent me a new one right away. The second time it arrived the wood part was broken. At that time it was Thanksgiving and I had a houseful of family staying with us for 10 days and never got around to returning it for the second time. It's a clever serving piece (hot and cold) but completely unusable because of the damage. Poorly made and poorly packaged for shipping.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt, but both packages arrived damaged. The packaging wasn't adequate, the serving tray was wrapped in plastic and there were only 4 little foam cubes that wouldn't be able to provide any protection.

                    My sister opened this product as a gift last night and to my surprise, it was "broken". The wooden slats had shifted and became displaced. She had to put it back together. I was so embarrassed and disappointed. She said that wood glue should do the trick, but I really hate the idea that she has to fix her gift before she even gets to use it.
