Love My Bean Pot!!!
My son and daughter-in-law bought me this pot and I love it so much!! I am fine with the handles and lid. The design is nice too. How it heat and cooks is wonderful. I would highly recommend and by more products.

Wonderful bean pot
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
Great pot to cook my beans
Took me back to when my mom would cook beans the taste is really unique and wonderful
Los Angeles, CA
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.
ConsLid handle small and flat hard to use.

Bean pot
Bought two bean pots. One for my daughter and the other for me. These pots are awesome. It’s the only way to cook beans.
Cypress, TX
Muy Good Beans
Cure and sacrifice 2 pots of beans and then the third pot will be ready to eat. Beans taste so good.
Bean Pot
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.
Woodway, Tx
Great product
Followed the curing process and then cooked some beans. Came out great and was a bit as the pot is beautiful for serving.
Ripon, CA
Love it!!
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.
ProsDelicious food!!!
ConsCareful with the lid as the vent holes are right next to the handle.
Oakdale California

Very beautiful pot for cooking beans, I have it on my counter top.

Portsmouth, VA
Very pretty pot
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.
ProsSize Appearance Cost
ConsWatch sticker may take off glaze
Warrenville, IL
Beautiful and functional
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.
ProsAttractive and beans taste great.
ConsDeveloped crack
Excelente para platillos mexicanos y caldos chilenos
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.

Arrived cracked :(
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
ProsNice pot
ConsArrived cracked. Unusable

Los Angeles, CA
If I could give more stars I would!!!!
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!!
Prosquality product, super fast shipping, and excellent customer service!

This clay bean pot is gorgeous! The first one I received was broken, but after contacting MexGrocer, they took care of me and sent a replacement. I can't wait to start using it! Great customer service MexGrocer!
ProsBeautiful design

Best customer service experience ever. I ordered the clay pot and unfortunately it broke so I contacted customer service and immediately was sent another one. Didn't  even have to return the broken one. I highly recommend MexGrocer. I will definitely be buying here again.

Very nice product.
We are happy to enjoy traditional cooking with this very nice olla.
ProsAttractive design.
Odessa, Texas
This item arrived well packaged. Excellent condition.
ProsLike 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.
ConsTook a little longer than I expected, to arrive. But, it arrived on time for giving away as a wedding gift.

Nice olla but needs brighter colors
Liked the Olla, the decoration could have been more colorful, but overall I'm happy with it

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
Proslarge, pretty
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.

Carlsbad, New Mexico
Large Bean Pot
Made some really great tasting beans and a stew that took less time because of the wide flat bass. I have sent one to each of my for children.
Prosvery nice, lots of stir room and a large base for quicker cooking. Really nice to look at also.
great purchase
Great for slow cooked beans
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?
ProsBeautiful detail
ConsMail 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.
ProsI love how it looks.
Palm Beach Gardens, Fl
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!!
ProsLooks like s piece of art!!
Merrillville, Indiana
Love It!
Just what I've been looking for! Used it after I seasoned it & made some frijoles charros that turned out deeelicious!!
ConsLid does not fit snugly onto olla. :(

The best one I. Have come across in like forever I will order 1 more so I know I've got a backup one just plain awesome
Meeker, Colorado
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.

ProsQuality 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.
ProsIt's great for cooking beans. If it ever breaks I will order another one.
ConsIt appears fragile bc it is made of clay so I hand wash only. I think it is too fragile for the dish washer.
Corpus Christi, TX
Great Olla!!
Perfect size, very pretty, made some great beans!!
ProsLead-free, attractive hand-painting, perfect size
This pot is great, I have had it about two weeks and I have already made pinto and black beans with it, they turned out fabulous both times. The pot also looks great sitting on the stove between uses.
