TWO HANDLED BAKESTONE

£57.00

A traditional Two Handled Bakestone, from an original early 20th Century design, which is used to bake authentic and historic regional UK and Irish recipes on.

Note: On a practical level, if you intend doing a lot of traditional baking, you may find this type of griddle the easiest of all the baking stones to use. It is easy to move around and carry (although like all Oakden griddles and bakestones it is very heavy!). Due to the way the handles are positioned and the robust nature of it means it is fantastic when baking on any type of cooker or heat source.

A traditional Two Handled Bakestone / Griddle (12 inch / 30 cm diameter and 10mm thick) is seen in both English and Welsh authentic cooking, as well as in other regions in the UK and Ireland. A two handled griddle like this is is used to bake authentic regional recipes on, such as crumpets, regional breads, pratie oaten, drop scones, welsh cakes, pies, perkin, plum heavies, tarts and oaty biscuits etc. Please see ‘How To Season Your Griddle‘ for information on caring for this item.

Being made to a traditional thickness (10mm) and weight the Oakden Bakestone is far more robust than the cheaper copies other outlets sell; these inferior, thin copies are no better than using a cheap frying pan which will buckle under the heat (creating hot spots) and are not at all suitable for the traditional style of cooking and method that most traditional recipes call for. An Oakden bakestone will last many lifetimes of use and it will retain and radiate the heat necessary (whilst remaining flat) to cook perfectly even the most demanding recipes.

This is a hand-made reproduction, made from an early 20th Century design, and because it is made of a thick steel plate (which is basically like cast iron, without the brittleness) it is able to be used on a wide range of modern convection / induction / radiation cookers and fires.

Multipurpose : A Two-Handled Bakestone can also be used in the oven as a pizza plate. In fact it is a perfect modern Pizza Plate for use in the oven (any oven indoor and outdoor) as it radiates heat evenly and it retains the heat over a long period.

WEIGHT : 5.5Kg

Note this is a heavy item : due to the weight please use carefully on induction and ceramic hobs.

Heat Source / Cooking Top : This can be used on all Gas or Electric cookers and on both Ceramic or Induction cookers … This is a unique cooking product made here at our workshops at Oakden and it is made of a thick steel plate (which is basically like cast iron, without the brittleness) and so it is able to be used on a very wide range of modern convection / induction / radiation cookers and fires. It can also be used over an open fire, using a fire dog to sit on etc.
