Comal de 17 pulgadas

Comal para calentar tortillas y torear chiles. Ideal para hacer quesadillas y sincronizadas.

EL COMAL

El comal tradicional es un disco de barro cocido que se coloca sobres tres piedras (los TENAMASCLES) entre las cuales se prende un fuego de carbón o leña. Antes de ser usado, hay que "curarlo", o sea frotarlo por ambos lados y varias veces con una mezcla de agua y cal, después de lo cual se pone a secar al sol.

Más práctico es el comal de metal, de uso generalizado en México. Es más ligero, no es frágil, se calienta más rápidamente que el de barro y la temperatura se puede graduar fácilmente. Es un disco de lámina de hasta 80 cm. de diámetro. Se limpia con agua y jabón o detergente, y se cura sólo untándolo con unas gotas de grasa. Se oxida fácilmente, de manera que hay que secarlo por completo cada vez que se lava.
Existen comales metálicos cóncavos en la parte central. Sirven para freír antojitos en grasa. Antojitos y tortillas se conservan calientes sobre el borde del comal.

My search is over!

Received my comals today. I ordered one for me and one for a family member. I have a round one, but have been looking for this long oval one for so long. I'm so excited to try it out this weekend. Want to teach my grandkids how to make tortillas. Thank you Mex Grocer! You are top notch in my book!!!

Wish it were wider...

I've enjoyed cooking with my new Comal. It provides a good, hoy surface for roasting and for tortillas.
Pros:
The length is nice and covers two burners nicely
Cons:
I wish it were wider to accommodate large tortillas.

Purchased this to replace favorite one lost in moving. This one is heavier and slightly larger, but it does the job, and it's great to do several tortillas, etc. at one time! Very impressed with mexgrocer"s service/delivery!

I had been looking for this for awhile after seeing one used on Paula Deen. The griddle is just what I was looking for and I am very happy with it and the service I received from MexGrocer.com.
