How to make corn tortillas and how to use the comal


Comal de Hierro Forjado

Comal de hierro fundido curado o hierro forjado para asar tus alimentos favoritos. Perfecto para calentar tortillas. Ideal para hacer quesadillas y sincronizadas a la parrilla. Su tamano es de 26 cms de diametro.


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.

Ideal for small or medium sized tortillas.

As indicated, the cooking surface of the comal is about 9 inches. Additionally, there's a border at the edge which isn't a problem for smaller tortillas but this can be an issue when you're trying to make homemade flour tortillas as you're limited in surface space. Not only do you need that extra space for fitting the tortilla, but you also need it to fit your thumb or a utensil to flip it. Just something to keep in mind. Also, it has a very porous surface which slightly affects the appearance of the tortillas. Otherwise, it's been an effective product.
  • Heavy duty.
  • Great for ever day use over many years.
  • Thick flat surface.
  • Not for large tortillas.

I ordered the $35one & much to my dismay,I found the exact same product(same demensions,same maker-everything the same)for $16 at Walmart.I've already used mine so I can't return it & I've already gotten rid of the receipt that came with it. I like the product-just wish I would've found the $16 one before I paid what I did!

The comal worked fine for Chiles Rellenos. Be sure to season the comal first. 
  • Nice size.

I love it! Just what I was looking for. Great for charring chilies and heating corn tortillas. Thinking of getting one for my brother-in-law. I would definately recomend this product for those looking for an authentic Mexican cooking tool.

Perfect size for 1-2 person(s) doing a corn-tortilla thing--what with chorizo/egg/onion main meal w/beans and chili verde (Herdez). Also great for heating up corn tortillas so that peanut/almond butter can be spread/rolled/eaten con mucho gusto... And the fact that cast-iron works beautifully on an induction cooktop (faster than gas).....
