70% off means a 'full price' of £12. A bit high but not as much a work of fantasy as some alleged savings. £3.60 is a very good price, though.

Saw some at Leeds home bargains for £4. Both are good prices (though the standard RRP of £10-15 for an unglazed ceramic tile seems a bit steep).

Do these make a huge difference?

Thanks I want to try one of these but been waiting for a good price

ok for frozen pizzas? guess not?

No. I use a preheated iron griddle / pan works wonderfully. Can't get same with these stones which a prone to cracking. Can heat griddle on cooker . place dough on then put on toppings as you do this dough is starting to cook underneath. Finish toppings and cook in oven.

what size?

I'd say yes, been using them for about 5 years now. Have cracked 2 in that time admittedly, but both times my own fault for not looking after it properly and letting it get loads of oil on it (always cracks where oil patches are, I assume it weakens it). They make the bases much nicer, one of these and an asda £2 pizza comes out better than the much dominoes sell.

read somewhere you can get certain tiles (i think non-glazed?) from kitchen/ bathroom suppliers for about 99p that do same thing.

These are great for artisan bread baking. Just chuck the dough onto the heated stone in the oven and it gives a great result. Also good for pizza

Remember never to get them wet, that's what normally causes the cracking.

My first one came with a pizza cutter and a serving tray, so that you could safely put the pizza stone onto a table. What they neglected to tell you was cutting the pizza on the stone left orrible oil patches everywhere which ruined it! I now cook on the stone and cut on a plate.

for fresh pizzas then yes but bear in mind the substantial increase in energy costs due to having to heat the stone for 30 minutes before

I have one. Good for fresh but useless for frozen. Personally I wouldn't bother.

So about 21p extra for an electric oven...

I wholeheartedly agree with the first bit, but I only really eat fresh so will always have one. I probably also wouldn't bother if I liked deep pan, but for thin and crispy bases they are great.
