Yes, we use one. Ours is rectangular, and fits exactly on the slide out rack in our oven. I used to have a round one, but I like this a lot better.

I have a round pizza stone.  I don’t use it very often, but when I do, it’s pretty badass!!  I love how if bakes the crust.  I think I should maybe invest in a rectangular one as we’ve been making a lot of rectangular pizza lately (there’s a great bakery here and they’re rectangular crust is to.die.for).

I forgot about rectangular ones!  I was worried about finding a place to store a round one!

I registered for and received the first one you listed (rectangular, red, Emile Henri) but we haven’t tried it out yet. The online reviews at WS are really good though. I originally had the circular one on there, but then the rectangular seemed more utilitarian as you can still put a round pizza on there, but leaves you the option of rectangular pizzas and flatbreads as well. Plus, the one at WS is glazed, so it’s dishwasher safe. There’s a round, less expensive one available that is not glazed (it’s like beige or something) and that’s handwash only.

We have a cheap-o round one.  Haven’t used it in a while since the oven was out of commission, but it was pretty badass.  We can make good pizza!  We store it on top of the breadmaker.  🙂

@MsVoyageur:  

I have a wall mounted oven and store it on the flat shelf with my baking sheets, directly above the oven, when not in use. It hasn’t been a problem at all, I just put it on the bottom because it’s heavier. (For a while I had it standing on end beside the microwave in its cabinet, but then I thought I’d like more air flow in there.)

I have a 10-12 in round one and I just leave it in my oven at all times…. We just put casserole dishes, etc. on top of it when we’re cooking things because DH thinks that it helps everything cook more evenly. We’ve been doing this for 2.5 yrs and no problems. We used to make pizza and bread on it all the time and I would definitely recommend getting a “pizza peel” to get the pizza off.

It’s not an essential thing, but it is nice : ). Ours is from Rada, I think. They have a terrible website but AWESOME knives and pizza stones! I don’t work for them, just a big fan!
