My step dad loving receiving this as a gift! He loves to cook outside and grill - he made some really great steaks on his new salt block! I’d buy again!
I was very excited about my Salt Block and cookbook purchase. I bought it specifically to grill on my stove top. I used it three times before it caught on fire! I googled and researched all the instructions how to heat it, followed it exactly. My block started to crack after use 1. By my third attempt, I made burgers and the grease went through the salt cracks and started a little fire underneath my block. It was pretty alarming. I threw out the block after that. $75 for 3x of use.
This is my 3rd salt block and I love all 3. I love the larger size block to cook on!
We have used the salt block 3 times on our gas grill. On the 3rd use, the block broke into 2 uneven pieces. We can still use the large piece but that limits the size of the item we are preparing for a meal. We noticed that it took a long time to preheat the block. We did buy a CDN laser thermometer to check the temperature of the block and the food.
I was preheating mine very slowly. At 418 degrees (using an infared thermomator) the corner blew off. Very disapointed!
