The only issues I've ever seen any post until now on the Chosera have been with the 5K+ stones. All I can say is I've had mine for about 4 years with no issues. Unless I soak it 20 minutes I just have to constantly wet it. It performs poorly unless I soak it. When it reaches what seems to be it's sweet spot for water retention it becomes a different stone. TBH if others are having issues soaking these I'm not sure I would not suggest this stone as they are over $80.
