Cooking on steatite stone … hot and healthy

We’re huge fans of these LaPierre natural steatite stones from Scandinavia … which offer a whole new way of cooking. Capable of reaching temperatures of well over 200° C, they retain their temperature for up to half an hour and even then, cool down incredibly slowly. You can use them in the oven, on a gas flame burner or – the one we’re most excited about – on a wood, charcoal or briquette braai. With just a small fire, you can reach cooking temperatures in less than 15 minutes (yay for those of us who’re always in a rush to eat), and very little heat is needed to keep your desired temperature steady. They’re non-stick and perfect for cooking fish, meat, seafood on the braai, bacon, eggs and tomatoes for brekkie, healthy stir-fries and so much more. The stones come in three sizes … with the 50cm Kettlebraai Sizzling Stone being the largest (and heaviest … it weighs a hefty 8kg and costs R1650), to a small stone which is great if you’re cooking for two, or to serve food individually (it’s just 2.5kg and costs R650).
