"Why did you choose this product?"
I bought this item over 7 years ago. They have stood the test of time. I always used them to heat in a turkey baster for professional use. I've recently started keeping the extras in my freezer as they hold cold just as well as heat. Much more stones than needed for client use....

I've been using these stones in my massage practice regularly for just about a year now. They are the perfect size and shape for my hands, which is key. Yes, they are machined. I actually prefer these to the naturally shaped stones I use at my other job, as I don't feel like I'm fumbling around so much for stones of the same weight, and again, there's the guarantee that each stone I pick up is going to sit nicely in my palm and have just the right amount of edge for me to grip, all allowing me to spend less time messing around with my stones and more time working on my clients. As to the condition of the box....I really can't help but feel that those who lowered their ratings of this product based on the condition of the box have a skewed set of priorities. This is the best price by far that I've ever seen on a set of stones this size. If it's a gift and your box is destroyed, put them in a nice basket lined with towels. Or you can have mine. I've never put my stones back into the box. I bought them to be used.Read More

This is a great starter set. The stones keep their warmth. They're uniform and are easy to handle. The box is not the sturdiest. I'd recommend you get something else to store them in.Read More
Awesome quality! Love the fact that they're all shaped nice and flat! Easy to use.Read More
As a professional massage therapist I rely on quality products. When I needed an additional set of hot stones for our clinic I thought I would give these a try. They are very good quality stones: -- smooth, well rounded, no chips. My only concern was the coating that was on them when they arrived. I had not experienced that before in hot stones. It came off fairly quickly as we used the stones, but did get in the way for the first few times we used the stones, even after scrubbing them. But all in all a very good buy.Read More
Box is flimsy but manageable for the price and quality and quantity of the stones. Toe stones are a bit big.Read More
Questions & Answers
I am not sure, this is my first time buying massage rock for home use. I think I chose this product based on the review from some of the massage therapists in the review and also the price deal for a whole package.

"How are these to be heated?"
Hello savageca, the stones are generally heated in a bath of hot water. Thank you for shopping with us. Vicki H
If it's for spa applications, you would purchase a stone warmer (it's essentially a crock pot intended exclusively for hot stones), though if these are just for home use, you could place them in a heat safe container and cover in hot water.
