I am a HUGE fan of Bipbambop, especially because of the crispy rice that is created with the heat of the stone bowl.... I know other cultures also have dishes that have crispy rice... though instead of stone bowls, they come from what a friend tells me... "the bottom of the pot". Is there any difference in taste/texture between crispy rice that is formed in a stone bowl vs crispy rice formed at the bottom of a pot?

Bibimbap for those who don't know what that is:

Not having the faintest idea what that dish is. From a culinary perspective, stone would provide a better cooking experience because it retains heat longer and hotter than metal. Rice would be crisper if not burnt.
