- Assemble out of the box and place on the grill following the instructions in your manual. Light charcoal (20 minutes); use a charcoal starter for best results. Preheat for about 10 minutes. Open the bottom and top vents of the grill completely. Place the lid so that the top vent is toward the back of the kettle. (This should force airflow through the cooking area instead of up and out the front opening.) Use your pizza peel to slide an uncooked pizza onto the stone. Your pizza's cook time is determined by grill temperature and your desired doneness. Use the peel to rotate your pizza halfway through cooking. When it is done, remove using the peel, slice, and serve.
- Before using it for the first time, wash your wok with warm, soapy water to remove any residues left from manufacturing. Dry by placing over medium heat until the wok is completely dry, then increase the heat to high. Pour a few teaspoons of oil into the wok, and rub it throughout the inside using a spatula or a paper towel held with tongs. Once this coating has burned off, wipe the inside of the wok with a paper towel held with tongs. Repeat this process until your paper towels have no visible residue on them. Please see included instruction manual for more details if necessary.
- Always preheat the wok before adding oil. Whenever you start cooking with your wok, heat it until it begins to smoke before adding oil to the pan. This will open up the pores in the metal, allowing the oil to close them so that the metal does not absorb water during cooking. It also prevents food from sticking to the wok, and aids in producing the highly desirable “wok hei” which is the desired flavor that woks impart into your food.
- The first few times you use the wok, re-season it with one layer of seasoning before returning it to storage. Continue seasoning the wok after each use until the surface remains permanently dark, shiny and non-stick. Check for a damages to the wok’s finish. Any time you look at your wok and see the seasoning start to fade, or if food starts sticking too much to the surface of the pan, re-season it.
- Wait for smoker to cool before emptying and washing.
- Spray screen with cooking oil before laying pizza dough on screen and assembling pizza directly on it. Place pizza screen directly onto preheated oven rack or onto a preheated grill.
- Find the correct rack adjustment in your oven. Typically the best rack position for cooking pizza is the top rack, but this usually depends on your oven broiler. Pre-heat for at least 30 minutes on your oven's highest heat setting, typically 500°F to 550°F.
- Before using your crepe griddle for the first time, it should be properly seasoned. To season the griddle, simply brush it with a thin coating of oil (safflower, sunflower, or flax seed oil preferably) and place it on the grill over medium-high flame. Heat the griddle for at least 30-40 minutes, turn off heat source, and allow the griddle to cool. Repeat this process once more before using it to cook crepes

PIZZA OVENSPizzeria Pronto and PizzaQue
- Allow oven to cool completely before cleaning. Remove the cordierite stone from the oven and clean by running under cool water and brushing away debris with a scrubber. Do not use soap. To clean the crumb tray, allow the oven to cool completely before removing the tray by loosening the thumb-screws on the bottom.
- Use a damp cloth to wipe down as needed and dry immediately. Do not store outside unprotected. Take care not to scratch surfaces with any metal tools. Protect ovens, legs, and workstations with cover when not in use, if possible.
- Wipe with a damp cloth and hang to dry. Do not machine wash or dry.
- Wait for wok to cool before washing. Use warm water and a brush (preferably bamboo) to clean. Do not use abrasive scrubbers or steel wool or it will remove the seasoned layer. Do not soak. Avoid chemical detergents and soap as they may remove the seasoning of your wok. Not dishwasher safe. It’s better to cover the pan in boiling water for a few minutes than to scrub it with soap. Heat the wok on the stove to remove any excess moisture after cleaning. The only time you can use steel wool again is to clean the outside of the wok or if you see rust in the pan. If rust occurs, simply scrub it away with a steel wool pad, and re-season all over again. It’s also a good idea to apply a thin coating of oil to the outside of the wok as well.
- Do not use abrasive scrubbers. Dishwasher safe.
- This baking stone is very durable though caution should be exercised to avoid thermal shock, which may crack the stone. Do not expose the stone to extreme temperature changes, such as placing the hot stone into cold water or placing a frozen pizza onto the hot stone. There is no need to soak the stone in water before use. To clean, scrape off excess food with a spatula. When the stone has cooled, run it under hot water while scrubbing with a brush. Do not use soap on the stone. Pizza stones are porous and will retain the soap. The natural properties of the baking stone will cause it to darken and spot with age – do not attempt to remove this discoloration. Air-dry the stone and store inside the oven.

Air-dry the stone and store inside the oven.
- See “Cordierite” above. Do not use metal tools with glazed stones, as you run the risk of scratching your glazed stone’s finish.
- Hand wash and dry immediately. Rub the pan with a light coat of vegetable oil after every use.
- The Baking Steel comes pre-seasoned with oil. You can build up the seasoning by repeating the process 2-3 times, brushing it with a light coating of oil, then bake the steel in a hot oven for an hour at 400° F. Once a good seasoning has developed, it will be much less likely to rust.Thoroughly dry the steel and store it in a dry environment indoors. Even well seasoned steel will eventually rust when placed in a humid environment. Do not use soap to clean. Washing with soap will require the steel to be re-seasoned. Occasionally rub oil on steel to maintain seasoning.
- To preserve and extend the useful life of the pizza peel, hand wash with a mild dishwashing soap, rinse, and dry immediately. Wood components should never be placed in a dishwasher. Do not soak. Do not use abrasive or metallic scrubbers. Periodically apply a small amount of mineral oil or other wood-safe oil to wood components to condition. Wood pizza peels are not dishwasher safe.

COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
My pizza is stuck to the pizza peel - what did I do wrong?
Pizzas will stick for a few reasons. The main two reasons would be not using enough flour or cornmeal, and taking too long to assemble and transfer the pizza to the oven. There are two ways to fix this:
- Fold the assembled pizza in half, and add more flour or cornmeal underneath – repeat this process with both sides of the pizza.
- If you're using a metal pizza peel, place the peel in the oven for 1-1.5 minutes so the crust partially bakes. You should be able to slide it off the peel at this point. This technique will not work with a wooden peel and should not be attempted.
My pizza is stuck to the stone / steel - what did I do wrong?
Sticking comes from the stone being too hot and crust starting to burn.
I think I see mold on my pizza stone!
Yes, pizza stones can mold, and yes, it’s usually due to being wet too long or having leftover food on it. When you finish using your stone it's best to scrape off any stuck on bits. Run the stone in your oven at 550° for an hour or two. So long as you’ve wiped the mold off completely, this time in the oven will kill anything harmful on the stone. Black spots are usually just blemishes, so no need to worry.
