Is it necessary to clean the lava stone?

We have just brushed ours with the grill brush, but wonder if we should do more
Asked by: Grama
Not really, just scrape off the large chunks of food and then flip it for the next use and remaining will burn off.

What type of warranty

I purchased my stone this past June, and I have never dropped it but it has broken in 3 pieces now. I would hope that something I paid $54 for would last for at least a year, if not longer. Would Home Depot replace it if brought it back?

Is this stone intended to replace the grate that comes with the Vision Professional Grill or used in conjunction with it?

Asked by: ChurrascoJo
Not a replacement. It is a heat diffuser that sits lower to your fire. You could use it as a pizza stone on top of your grate, but I'd probably use it as a diffuser and add a pizza stone on top of grate. Its primary purpose is for indirect cooking, especially needed for long cooks and smoking.

Dual-Purpose Lava Cooking Stone/Heat Deflector is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 172.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap metal Metal bracket is bent and warped after one use. Needs to be made of material that can stand the heat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heat deflector Served its purpose but metal holder broke after 2 years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cracked Lava Stones If the stone cracks go to Home Depot and get two #104 SS clamps 5" to 7" diameter. Unscrew each one, then connect them end to end to form a circle. Clamp them lightly, just enough to hold the pieces in place, around the stone. - Or do as I did and clamp it before it cracks :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Heat Deflector design While I really do love my Vision grill and cook on it quite a lot, the design of the "lava" rock heat deflector is terrible. It breaks REAL easy! I have had replace it twice and Vision would not replace it. Vision only warranties it for 90 days so they know it is a deflect. They should make it out of another material that is not porous and acceptable to breaking very easy. It will break at the slightest touch after you use it several times. The grill is fantastic but has a Achilles heal! I have been looking for a pizza stone to replace it with but no luck so far to find the right size............

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Necessary accessory for vision cooker The lava stone is nice and a good addition if you need indirect cooking. And unless you sear everything, you need indirect cooking. Honestly, it's a bit expensive for what you get, a think stone that should last a lifetime but the two braces that might not last. I would have been satisfied with the just the two braces being sold separately and using a round cast iron griddle of my own. As this braces might need replacing over time anyway, I'd prefer being able to buy them separately. The large diameter of the stone forbids tending to your fire during your cook if you need to. You will have to remove your food, grate, and stone just to add wood chips if needed. Then you'd have to put it all back again. Meanwhile, your fire gets unlimited oxygen during this time. It's a recipe for disaster for a long cook. Using my smaller cast iron griddle allowed for adding at least some wood during a long cook. Perhaps the larger diameter is necessary for a proper convection effect but I haven't noticed this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have a Vision Cooker you need this. The only problem with this product is the HD doesn't give a very good or complete description of it. The stone is shipped with a metal frame that drops the stone below the grilling surface. Perfect for indirect cooking. You can also use it as an additional surface to grill on directly. The main reason is to direct the heat to the outside of the chamber. It might also be used to grill steaks on at lower setting(meaning closer to the fire), for more searing capability. If you have a Vision grill you need this to be able utilize all the variable cooking styles with a ceramic cooker. The reason for the 4 stars on quality is the metal frame.
