The first one arrived broken. I called and the color I wanted was sold out but I took the green one as an exchange. WOW! It arrived fast and it is awesome. I put it right on the grill and the flavors of the pizza are so intense. It has made our summer dinners a snap and we feel like we are eating in Italy!

Two issues with this product influenced my rating.
The first one I ordered arrived broken.
Secondly, no instructions included. I had to "google" Emile Henry Flame Pizza Stone" to find instructions. (It's glazed, unlike other pizza stones, so wasn't sure how to use it!)
If you are purchasing this product for yourself, these issues can be easily overcome (Sierra Trading has great return policy if one arrives broken).
But if you are purchasing for a gift, these issues may influence your decision.

We used this for a frozen pizza and the crust smelled yeastier and fresher than when baked on the oven rack. This is a great price and Emile Henry is a great brand, we own several pieces of their bakeware.

I was so excited to find these on STP. I do a lot of artisan bread baking, and I'd read a lot of terrific reviews of these stones. So I ordered 4 of them!
Of the four I received, two had unacceptable flaws, and one had a flaw I felt I could live with. They are indeed beautiful, and I loved the idea of having bread stones that weren't stained and ugly, as is inevitable with the uncoated pizza stones.
I've used the Emile Henry Pizza Stone twice now, and both efforts yielded sub-standard loaves. I bake bread using a very hot pre-heated stone, and then tossing a cup of water into a heated broiler pan in the 450 degree oven when I slide the loaf onto the hot stone. The sudden heat and steam create fantastic lift, and bakes a gorgeous artisan loaf with a crackling crust and perfect interior. With the beautiful Emile Henry Pizza Stone, the lift just isn't there. I t\experimented using both an uncoated (ugly) stone and the (beautiful) Emile Henry stone with two loaves of the same bread, side-by-side in the same oven for the same time with the same conditions, and the problem is definitely the stone.
This may work fine for pizza, but for baking artisan breads, it's not a worthwhile choice.

I had previously prhasced these at retail, and i can tell you that they do a great job to produce crisp crusts and are versitile for grill or oven, or to use just as a serving tray! Unfortunately they are listed as closeouts, and not seconds, and what I received were marked as second choice and had flaws in the material. Customer service, however, is helpful and they are trying to rectify this.
