New Beeswax & Mineral Oil Soapstone Treatment

By | New Soapstone Products, Soapstone Sinks | No Comments

IMG_1162Our new soapstone treatment is the best way to beautifully age your new soapstone. This treatment is a 100% food-safe blend of beeswax and mineral oil. Many new soapstone owners treat their stone with mineral oil alone, which provides a moderate seal. We work hard on sourcing the finest soapstone available, so we wanted to provide a soapstone treatment of the highest quality while keeping the treatment natural. The Beeswax & Mineral Oil Soapstone Treatment is available for purchase from our online store in both 8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes.

Adding beeswax to the mineral oil increases the staying power of the treatment by providing a stronger seal and a longer-lasting, subtle shine. This treatment will also help to lessen the time that new soapstone takes to darken to its aged glory.

Try it for yourself to see the difference in your soapstone countertop, sink, tiles, or fireplace!

BIG Savings. With our Kitchen-to-Go Kit.

By | DIY Soapstone Countertops, New Soapstone Products | No Comments

Our Kitchen-to-Go Kit is ideal for the handy homeowner who would like a beautiful soapstone kitchen countertop at a considerable saving.

Unlike granite, soapstone is soft enough that it doesn’t require special tools for fabrication. All you need is a circular saw, a jigsaw, a drill/driver, a grinder, and a sander, making your kitchen soapstone countertop an inexpensive DIY project.

Two-Sided Soapstone Griddle

By | New Soapstone Products | No Comments

This natural, very durable, versatile and energy efficient product works the same way a cast iron product would, but better. Because of soapstone’s thermal qualities, once the griddle has reached it’s peak temperature of 800 + degrees, it will remain hot for a long time after the fire is off, allowing it to be removed from the stove top or grill, and continue cooking for up 30+ minutes before it starts cooling off.

Our soapstone griddle has two sides, one is flat that can be used to cook eggs, pancakes, etc and the griddle/grooved side for steaks, chicken, shrimp,etc.

It can also be used as a nice cheese or sushi tray. Put it in the freezer or refrigerator 3 hours prior to use, and it can be used as a cold cuts serving tray.

Needs to be cured prior to first use. Just oil both surfaces with olive oil, wipe off excess oil and bake it in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. Wait until it is back to room temperature and the soapstone is ready to go on the stove top or grill.

Soapstone is naturally non porous, odorless and tasteless. Due to these qualities, soapstone will never alter the taste of your food. Soapstone is inert to acids, chemicals and obviously, heat.

Easy to clean, any common household cleaner can be used. The green side of the sponge and detergent is all it takes to clean your soapstone griddle.

We hand make this product in Hackensack, New Jersey, from excess factory countertop material, reducing waste.

Size: 16″ x 10″
