Can You Wash Or Rinse A Pizza Stone With Water?

Some people wonder if they can wash a pizza stone in water. I’ve heard of some people doing this and other methods such as microwaving the stone to clean it. I would discourage anyone from doing that. The stone essentially is made to withstand high temperatures, so in order to get it properly clean, you should follow the steps listed above. In my opinion, there’s no need to wash it with water or any other liquids.

However, if you do need to use water, the most important thing is to not submerge it in water. Wiping with a damp cloth is okay though.
