Hearty stews flavored with chorizo and smoky paprika are a delicious tradition, especially in central and northern Spain. The stews simmer in a pot for hours while the flavors of these classic dishes develop into a beautiful balance of flavors. Whether your recipe calls for beans such as fabada, garbanzos or lentils, this rustic iron stew pot is the perfect way to prepare the cocidos and other stews of Spain.
Traditionally a hefty iron ‘olla’ stew pot would sit over a wood fire in Spanish homes, bubbling with delicious flavors. Our supplier uses solid iron to cast these heavy duty pots, recreating the cookware tradition of old. This 2 quart pot can sit right on your stove, with the solid iron retaining heat as it cooks. The interior is coated with enamel so that it is easy to clean. Each pot comes with a fitted lid to keep the moisture and flavor inside where it belongs.
Clean your ‘olla’ stew pot with soapy water before first use. After each use, clean by hand and coat lightly with sunflower oil to prevent rust. The pot will change color over time, taking on a bit of the flavor of each stew you prepare. This solid iron pot will last for generations.

"This little pot is great!. It's for feeding a couple friends and sharing a meal. It holds heat very good. Fit's on very small woodburners. Up to the operator to have the fire right. Simmer all day in the rain, or just keep warm. Up to the operator. "
"The bean pot is great! It's nice and heavy and the lid has a snug fit. The inside is enameled, so it's easier to clean. I made a batch of pinto beans (using some agridulce smoked paprika) and they were really good. I used to cook beans in a regular large sauce pan, but I like the bean pot much better."
"Smaller than expected, although it was exactly as listed. Good construction."
"Pues aqui en USA venden ''pucheros de hierro' por lo menos en Lancaster Pa. ''dutch oven'' que es similar (no exactamente igual. Lo usan bastante los Amish y gente de origenes Pen.Dutch. Este de aqui parece muy bueno y original. Gracias."
"This pot is totally unnecessary. I got it to make arroz meloso in an authentic Valencian pot. One could make it in any old pot, but that wouldn't be nearly as much fun. There are many more rice dishes in Valencia than just paella. arroz caldoso which is very soupy and arroz meloso (medio caldoso) which is not quite as soupy. I'm much more likely to make them in this pot than otherwise, but it isn't essential. Miguel http://paellacook.com/"
"Good pot. Looks even better in reality. Thank you. "
"The only one like it that I have ever found. I am very pleased"
"I'm a big fan of cast-iron skillets but have never had a cast-iron pot. It's fab for stews, etc., on a smaller scale - I've already cooked lentilles du Puy and pinquito beans in it. Apparently there's also a five-liter size."
