This was a surprise for my son and his finance (live in FL). Ordered a box of other goodies at the same time for them to try and they were excited to receive and anxious to make their first Tamales. They will be getting their cookbook out soon to decide which recipe to try first. Thank you for your excellent service and delivery.
A great assortment.

I am so happy I found this website.....and especially this product. It has everything you need to make tamales without a big hassle. For years I wanted to make my own tamales, but I just didn't have the tools to do it. Now I can make them whenever I want.....thanks so much!

The perfect kit for homemade tamales!
December 31, 2013

I LOVE tamales! I was intimidated by the idea of making them myself. After finding this site I decided to jump in with both feet, and I am so glad I did. The kit is perfect, plus I ordered additional peppers from MexGrocer. With everything at my fingertips my first attempt resulted in amazing tamales. It did take a few tries to get the hang of the masa spreader, after I got it, I loved it. Good value, prompt shipping. 5 stars.
The stockpot is good quality and the perfect size, all tamales cooked evenly The Masa spreader made the job easy The peppers rehydrated beautifully

February 23, 2011

I received this as a gift and I think it's wonderful! I had never made tamales before and I couldn't believe how easy and fun it was. Admittedly, it took a few tamales to get the hang of spreading the masa and folding, but it was an enjoyable process. I tried using the tamale spreader that came with the kit, but I found a butter knife worked better for me. The tamales cooked evenly in the steamer pot and my family couldn't believe the tamales were homemade. I would recommend this for any tamale enthusiast.

I ordered the gift pack a couple of weeks ago in the hopes of making them for my family and friends. I was nervous because I had never made them before. My backup plan was to order pizza. Well, they turned out great. I used a recipe from I made about 35, and like I said they were excellant. I can't wait to do it again, because I have a lot of shredded meat in the freezer. Thanks
