New favorite pot
December 31, 2023
Great purchase, I brought this a little over a year ago and finally cured to make black beans. Beans turned out fantastic!

Curing was easy; I let the pot and lid soak in water for about 24 hrs, after the soak I patted both dry and rubbed several garlic cloves all over (inside and out). Because some of the glaze chipped off while soaking I went a step further to make sure I wasn't cooking with any impurities and did a second cure by filling the pot about 1/2" from the rim with water and a 1/4 cup white vinegar; I boiled until most of the water was evaporated. After letting cool enough to handle, I drained the water and gave a quick rinse.

I have an electronic glass stovetop so I purchased a heat diffuser plate so that the top of my stovetop wouldn't be scratched and the pot wouldn't break with the temper changes.

I would highly recommend investing in Clay cookware, it will take your dishes to another level of yummy.
  • Easy to cure
  • Even slow cooking
  • Adds earthy flavor to dishes
  • Glaze chips easily
  • On the thin side of clay cookware

It arrived fast well packaged and no issues..I cured my pot and is ready to use. Some of the products I would like to buy to make guisados or rice are out of stock 😪 So I am hoping they are available soon so I can make another purchase.
  • It keeps food warm and it cooks faster.
  • No cons really like any barro pots you have to handle with care.

Was fun to cook pot of bean for first time.
  • Fun.
  • Lid grip too small for my hands. Gets very hot- use extra caution.
  • Side handles too small.

Arrived in perfect condition and followed the instructions to season. On the first use, the outside did sweat a little from the soaking to season but it was the only time. Any dish I cooked in the olla had a much better flavor. Do yourself a favor and invest in one. Papa Pete

Nice pot. Lid handle too small and flat.

The pot is beautiful the only thing is the lid handle is too small and flat so I can’t really pick up the lid the right way. Other than that the pot is great.
  • Lid handle small and flat hard to use.

No better way to cook beans indoors or out.
Arrived in good shape, exactly as anticipated .
Leaks while heating for first cure, a little more in next few uses, then it starts seasoning and leaks no more.
Keep beans soupy for refried and leftover reheating.

I received this as a gift from my daughters for Christmas. And I absolutely LOVE IT!!! I told them I remember when I was young my great grandmother would use these type of cooking pots and I think with all the stories I tell my kids they wanted some of that authentic taste. Well I made my pot of beans, but with my beans I add garlic cloves (2), a little bit of yellow onion, Anaheim Chili a few strips, salt and of course a piece of chicharron. The real stuff from a Mexican meat store market, not the grocery store in a bag stuff. It’s a little pricey, but well worth it. Unless you can cook it yourself. I am beyond thrilled with my pot. I will definitely be recommending this pot and telling people where my pot was purchased.
  • Delicious food!!!
  • Careful with the lid as the vent holes are right next to the handle.

Was very excited waiting for this to arrive. It was so well packaged and wrapped in lots of paper. The sticker put on the pot took some of the glaze design off sadly but it's only on one side. Very happy with it's size. Will order more clay and ceramic items from here.

I have used this pot for several years and loved using it. I started buying Ranch Gordo beans and Purcell heirloom to cook in this pot. Unfortunately it has developed a crack so I will use it as a planter. I will now invest in a heavy duty pot. I did soak before each use, so I just think it's too thin.
  • Attractive and beans taste great.

Excelente para platillos mexicanos y caldos chilenos
February 10, 2018
Realmente excelente y duradera, compre está olla en Gonzáles market, northgate market y la Cure como ustedes me indicaron y mis frijoles sal en deliciosos. Ahora la usaré para preparar caldos de pollo res y paila Marina chilena, pulmay y cazuela de ave, veo que los chilenos tienen ollas especiales para estos platillos y estas de barro me ayudaran a sustituir.

August 13, 2017
I was looking forward to my new pot. I had previously purchased the same one and given it to my daughter. This one came with a crack down the side. Not surprised because of the packaging. The box you see in the picture is the box it came in. I reached out to customer service twice but have received no response. Nearly $40 down the drain

Merchant Response:If there is a problem and you provide us a picture, we will replace the cracked bean pot
  • Nice pot

You will not be disappointed with this quality piece of cookware. This item is exactly what I was looking for, and is a beautifully made, hand-crafted piece. The fact that it is lead-free is why I bought this! So glad I did. The customer service at Mexgrocer is the best ever!!!!! I wish more companies would take a lesson from them on how to treat customers. I would definitely recommend them simply for that reason alone. Thank you much Mexgrocer for carrying quality health-conscience products, and for treating your customers so well!!

This item arrived well packaged. Excellent condition.
  • 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.
  • 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
August 16, 2015
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 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
  • large, pretty
  • 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
December 3, 2014
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?
  • Beautiful detail
  • Mail handling isn't the greatest being shipped to Hawaii

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.

The house smells like Mama is cooking!!
October 25, 2014
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!!
