YES, YES, YES!!! It's impossible to use too much oil! I watch for it on sale and stock up when I can. My 4 stone set has an oil tray that sits underneath the stones so that the bottom stone is always submerged in oil. Messy? Yes.....but that's the whole point!
Speaking of messy, I sent you a surprise package as a product tester. Have you had a chance to see if it works? Was it worth the effort, or a waste of time?
