  1. I don't know of one that can't, but I'd still check the manual to make sure it's OK. My baking stone never leaves the oven.

      1. You could damage the oven, but probably not the stone (assuming its a decent stone). Many ovens recommend not putting anything on the floor. I'd leave it on a rack.
