This bean pot from the La Mixteca region of Puebla, Mexico, is completely handmade by a small family of potters. Fashioned from the local clay, which is naturally rich in talc, this unglazed South of the Border beauty has an incredibly smooth, soft, natural finish. The glossy surface comes from rubbing the pot with ancient stones that have been in the artisan's family for generations.
The ideal shape for beans with a narrow opening, round belly, and a lid that doubles as a bean bowl. This pot holds a good amount of liquid which allows the beans to move freely and cook evenly. Will fit perfectly, a pound of beans or a little more depending on the variety you cook.
This unique pot is imported by Rancho Gordo New World Specialty Foods and Bram is the exclusive online distributor.
7" x 11" H (18 cm x 28 cm). Opening 3½" (9 cm). Because our pots are handmade, the actual dimensions may vary.
