Supersize

This item arrived well packaged. Excellent condition.
Pros:
Like the glossy finish and the instructions on how to treat it before use. They also included a bean recipe. That was kewl. It is huge and could cook 4 cups of beans for a party gathering. The handles are very supportive when lifting the pot. Good to use them new rubbermaid heat resistant pot holders. Gave it as a gift and am sure its a handy addition to their home.
Cons:
Took a little longer than I expected, to arrive. But, it arrived on time for giving away as a wedding gift.

Question for all buyers of this olla

I bought one for my sister in NM, and it arrived with 2 nicks. One was small enough for her to accept, but the other was quite large. My sister said the pot was very well packed so the nicks must have been there when they packed it, and the packer just missed them. I contacted Mexgrocer and they apologized, and sent a replacement. The 5 star rating is for the excellent customer service. I told my sister I'll wait until she makes a pot of beans before I order one. So my question to all who have posted here, and maybe have suggestions on cooking beans in this pot, send to Mexgrocer to see if they will post in a section called recipes. Thank you.

I liked the price and lack of lead!

I have been looking for an inexpensive earthenware bean pot from mexico and found it at mexgrocer. It is a large, attractive pot, and my beans taste good
Pros:
large, pretty
Cons:
handles are ridiculously tiny. you cannot fit your finger in there, and you are likely to drop the pot if you do not pinch the handles with all your might. Same for the pot lid. it barely can be grasped. if you have giant man hands, you are doomed. Clearly no one was thinking about the end user when the pot was designed, they just had people slap the clay on without any thought. too bad.

Beautiful but broken

This pot is absolutely beautiful. However, my olla de Barro arrived cracked and unusable. I contacted customer service and they promptly sent me a replacement. Unfortunately, the second one arrived broken in 3 large pieces (the mail system doesn't seem to understand "fragile" on the shipping box). I again contacted customer service and they issued me a refund. I would love to own this olla de Barro but I don't want to attempt another shipment and have it break.
Merchant Response:
We are very sorry that this happened to you. :( We need to make it right so it gets to your home in perfect condition. Our Olla Frijolera de barro is very popular and we ship it nationwide, we don't know what goes wrong in Hawaii?
Pros:
Beautiful detail
Cons:
Mail handling isn't the greatest being shipped to Hawaii

Love It!

I ordered this item on a Sunday and it arrived here in Florida just 5 days later. It was very well packed, marked fragile and arrived in perfect condition. I haven't used it yet but plan to soon. I love the design and it looks like a rustic, artistic piece sitting on my stovetop. I am going to order another one for my daughter as a gift.
Pros:
I love how it looks.
Cons:
none

The house smells like Mama is cooking!!

I read the reviews and was compelled to try this. The lid does not get hot, my green eyed honey made the beans himself. My grandmother gave him the recipe before she passed. No I gas, with a bit of garlic?! In Spanish of course. I love this website, because it helps us finds things that are almost impossible to find in Fl. The pot makes the entire house smell like Mamas. The beans have an amazing flavor. 5 stars, lid does not fit correctly, but who cares the integrity is there!!
Pros:
Looks like s piece of art!!

Perfectly Happy

I've long wanted a terracotta olla but was concerned about lead, and now that I've got this one I'm one very happy old guy. After hydrating it properly, I loaded it up right to the top and several hours later enjoyed the best beans ever. I had forgotten just how much better beans taste when cooked in a clay pot -- it's how they're supposed to be! Friends who've seen it have all commented about how attractive this olla is, and it's got a place of honor so it's always visible in the kitchen.
Pros:
Quality Appearance -- it's beautiful! Results. Best beans ever.

Love it!

I wanted a clay bean pot for years. Now I'm wondering why I waited so long. This pot is lightweight. It is a perfect size cooking a good amount of beans. I've often cook 2 cups of dried beans at a time. It could easily handle more.

Great for beans!

I purchased this to cook beans. For the curing I filled it 3/4 with water and boiled it for an hour. Have had no residue of any kind. Beans cook quicker than the crock pot on high and I really enjoy that I can regulate the heat because you place it on the stove. I also use it to store left over beans and place in fridge. To reheat I let it warm up by setting it on the counter for half an hour or so. I use very low heat to start the reheating process then raise the heat higher to bring contents to a boil. The lid fits very well, very little steam escapes. There are three little holes in the lid to help prevent boilovers.
Pros:
It's great for cooking beans. If it ever breaks I will order another one.
Cons:
It appears fragile bc it is made of clay so I hand wash only. I think it is too fragile for the dish washer.

Review for Olla de Barro Frijolera sin Plomo / Lead Free Clay Bean Pot with lid

It's been many yrs since I've used a clay pot due to the lead content. The last one I purchased (store in Denver) had so much lead that my husband refused to eat the beans. You could actually see the lead floating on top of the water. So it was so good to see that I could now purchase one from your business without lead. I love my bean pot and the beans are wonderful - remind me of the beans I always had always enjoyed. I too would be interested in a smaller pot.

Although i have not yet used it, I love the style, colors, and design. It is beautiful!! I am just waiting on my mother to get ahold of my grandmother to find out what it is that we have to use to put in the bean pot before using it for the first time. I'm not sure what it is but it is suppose to be put in before u use the pot. Anyone know what it may be called?

Review for Olla de Barro Frijolera sin Plomo / Lead Free Clay Bean Pot with lid

When I received the olla I unpacked it and was a little concerned that it felt brittle to the touch. My first impression was that this was going to be too delicate and would break easily. After I followed the curing instructions in the instructions booklet, which states to submerge the olla in warm water for an hour, the olla took on a solid and hefty feel. I was relieved. Next thing I put on a pot of pinto beans with some smoked ham hock, chorizo mexicano, and a few chiles de arbol. A few hours later - wow!! These are the beans my beloved mother served me as a kid. I was in heaven. You just can't get this taste with a crock pot (don't even go there), or a metal pot. The olla is big enough to make a large pot of beans for a large family and small enough to still be effective for a small batch for smaller families. It performed very well on my smooth cooktop. Soon I will be converting to gas and I hope it will perform even better. Highly recommended - especially if you grew up on frijoles de olla.

Review for Olla de Barro Frijolera sin Plomo / Lead Free Clay Bean Pot with lid

I was shopping for a lead free clay pot cooker, and this product was much more affordable than other artisan cooking pots for sale on the web. It arrived quickly, well packaged, and in excellent condition. I’ve used it on my gas stove several times now with a heat diffuser, and am delighted with it. The pot with the heat diffuser allows the food to cook but not burn for long periods with little attention, similar to an electric crock pot, but without the electric bill. The shape is perfect for filling with fresh greens and cooking down over time. Cooking temperatures of necessity stay low, preserving valuable nutrition. Beans froth up but don’t spill over and make a mess, like in other cookware. The lid is not a tight fit, allows steam out, but I just add more boiling water once or twice when I stir. The knob at the top never gets too hot to handle. The lovely design earns it a welcome place on my counter top, unlike my other cooking pots. It makes a great “starter†clay pot cooker, and has become my favorite kitchen pot.
