Nerd Chef: The Ultimate Pizza Stone

Nerd Chef’s pizza surfaces boast 20x faster heat transfer than their ceramic counterparts, which may explain why my first attempt with the product yielded a slightly overdone pizza in under two minutes.


Nerd Chef is the “sister brand” of ElevationLab, maker of our favorite under desk headphone hook and one of our favorite smartphone docks.

Nerd Chef’s baking surfaces are made in the USA and guaranteed for life, and weigh in between 16-32lbs depending on which thickness you choose. Nerd Chef offers some good guidance for calibration, and once you match their surfaces’ heat transference with the quirks of your oven, you can easily make perfect pizza in a fraction of the time vs. a ceramic stone.

One of the biggest advantages of Nerd Chef is that it can simply live in your oven, forever, acting as a heat-sink to regulate temperature for all the rest of your tasks. You can even use dry ice to make ice cream on it.
