Quite a good deal!
That griddle looks like a nice piece of kit. Do you use it for anything else apart from baking? Does it fit alright on a two-ring gas stove?Dragonbones wrote:I MUCH prefer my Lodge griddle as a pizza stone. Here is the product: http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-Double-Reve ...

I have purchased from that seller several times -- a good source for cast iron cookware. It looks a tad pricey but lasts a lifetime or five if well cared for, and I believe the price from that seller is actually less than or the same as the US price PPD.

But they are apparently also a popular alternative way to make a custom baking stone. I'm actually looking for something I can fit in my smallish oven to begin bread baking experiments, and haven't found anything yet that's not too expensive or large.
If there is anywhere I can get some here (not B&Q, tried there already), I'll have to make sure there's no lead or other harmful material in them.
If you wander the back streets of Yingge you will find porcelain factories, and if you're fluent in Mandarin can ask them for some clay. Roll it out with a pin, nice & thick, and ask them to fire it for you unglazed. Or ask them to make you a pizza stone to your specified dimensions.
