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
Ingredients
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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Oven-to-Table Entertaining Platter:

    My son gave me this for Christmas. Arrived in great shape and was very pleased. While the tray could have been made out of cherry or walnut it would have been much more expensive. The craftsmanship and staining on mine is great. Some commented on no instructions in box. This is so common these days however I did receive a nice card with heating, cooling and washing instructions. Maybe some production and packaging overseeing would be valuable.

    The stone is beautiful. The wood tray needed paint or varnish. My husband painted it black to match our Kitchen.(Red & Black) It went really well with the stone. It will b a perfect center piece at Happy Hour.

        Trying to decide whether to return all 3 bought as gifts or not. Wooden tray looked like it was made in 9th grade shop class, not quality or even close, cheap pine, poorly finished, embarrassing to sell as an "uncommon good"

          After reading some of the reviews about the quality and look of the wooden tray, I was hesitant to purchase the Platter for a friend. However, I was thrilled upon opening the Platter to find that the wood was lovely and seemed well crafted.

          Unfortunately, I'm sending this back. The quality did not meet my expectations for the price of the piece. The wooden holder is not finished/stained well and feels very flimsy. The soapstone piece is very thin and seems as if it would have the potential to break easily.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Oven-to-Table Entertaining Platter:

              We opened presents for Christmas early. There were no instructions and I had to look it up on this website to figure exactly what it did. The wooden base is made out of cheap wooden material and would never stand 500 degrees. In looking at the picture of the soapstone, the piece I have is half as thick so the quality is misrepresented.
              I would appreciate you sending the money back to my sister since I feel this item is truly a waste of money for her. I can give you my sisters' information to verify the purchase.

                  The product seems nice as is as advertised, it is a gift for another family member so I haven't used it. However, I had to print my own description and name as it came without any documentation. The box it was packaged in was an inferior brown box. The box makes the product look very cheap and it certainly wasn't that.

                        Wooden frame was very unfinished. Soapstone slab has a hairline crack in it as well as the saw "cut marks" We opted not to use it in case the crack got larger. Would have returned it right away but can't find the receipt.
