Soapstone 

Kamado Joe Soapstone slab half moon from The Stove House 01730 810931

  • Soapstone is a thick bacteria and stain resistant slab which provides an even cook with fewer flare-ups all while allowing the meats to cook in their own juices.
  • It takes longer to heat up than Cast Iron but has more thermal mass so it stores more energy and will stay hotter for longer. 
  • Not porous and therefore will not trap the flavours of the food its cooking
  • Will not rust or decompose. 
  • Soapstone is a soft stone and therefore special care should be considered when using cooking tools to prevent scratching the surface. 

 Cast Iron

  • Heats up faster but holds less energy. 
  • More resilient than soapstone
  • Porous, so will hold flavours of your last cook. 
  • Griddles can leave a nice pattern on the food surface
