Raw meats can be cooked on the stone, or if precooked, can be warmed on the stone or heated in the raclette dishes. When all of your ingredients are thoroughly heated, place your potato, bread or tortilla on a plate. Fill with meats, cheeses and toppings of your choice by scraping the ingredients from the raclette dishes using the spatulas provided.
