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
Conshandles 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.
