Traditional Comal de Barro
Traditional Comal de Barro

These traditional earthenware comales are crafted by Doña Victoria and her cousin, Doña Felicitas, who are the resident clay (barro) artisans of the Chatino community of Tiltepec, located in Oaxaca’s coastal region. The Comal de Barro can be used on the stove or over a grill, or even for decorative purposes. These are fragile one-of-a kind objects, so we recommend handling with care.

Usage+
It’s important to season the comal before first use. To season, combine one part cal to one part water and brush the solution evenly across the comal’s entire surface. This will fill the comal’s porous surface and prevent food from sticking. Let air dry and brush off any bits of loose cal before heating.
These comales are suited for use over open fire or gas ranges, and are not recommended for electric stoves.
