Heat the Himalayan Salt Tile in an oven at 60 °C for 30 minutes. When the stone comes out of the oven you can put all pre-fried, previously cooked or hot dishes on the salt stone to serve while the food stays at temperature.
- To cook on the table:
Preheat the oven to 170 ° C and place the tile in the oven on the grid. Let the salt stone heat up for about 15 minutes and then increase the temperature to 250 °C and leave the stone for another hour in the oven to be able to bake & roast at the table.
- To roast directly in the oven:
Do you want something baking or roasting in the oven? Let the dish roast directly on the stone for about 30 minutes at a temperature no higher than 170 °C.
- Cooking on gas fire:
Place the salt tile in an anti-stick pan or directly on the flame. Use only on a small flame and preferably with a flame distributor.
- On the barbecue:
Provide a barbecue with at least 2 heat zones: a zone with a lot of heat and a zone with average heat. Warm the salt tile indirectly in the coldest zone for the first 15 minutes. Then you always move it closer to the hot zone. The Himalayan Salt Tile is hot enough when you throw a drop of water on it and it starts to simmer immediately.
The salt tiles can be used until they run out or break. It may be that the stone is discolored a little over time, but this has no negative consequences for the use of the stone. A salt block will last 20 times during normal use on the barbecue, a lot longer in cold use.
When used at higher temperatures (+ 170 °C) it is advisable to gradually heat up the salt tile and gradually increase the temperature to prevent any cracks. Allow the stone to heat up for about 15 minutes at approximately 170 °C to prevent premature cracking.
The Himalayan Salt Tile can easily be cleaned by sanding with a scouring pad and cold water (possibly with sodium bicarbonate) and rinsing thoroughly to remove all residues. Then dry with a clean cloth.
It is very important to keep the Himalayan Salt Tile in a dry, dark place. It is even advisable to wrap it in a clean dry cloth!
