    The best way to make Mexican Hot Chocolate is with clay cookware - a Mexican Kitchen’s staple. Passed down by the Aztecs, it’s still preferred for the unique flavor it lends to food. This handcrafted jug is made with ancient hand-molding techniques from the past, and finished with new techniques (and a lead-free glaze, of course) to be both functional and decorative. It’s perfect for making traditional Mexican hot chocolate.

    Unexpected Versatility

    The jug can be used directly over heat (a flame or electric range) - just add milk and chocolate. Try it with the food of the Gods, Oaxacan chocolate, and whisk until frothy with the molinillo. The pot can also be used to heat teas, soups, and coffee. And can we talk about its triple functionality as a vase or decoration? You’ll be impressed.

    Note: This jug is a cooking vessel, and not recommended as a water pitcher as the terracotta clay will sweat. The condensation that collects on the outside is normal, and does not imply that the jug is leaking.

    Meet The Artisan

    Rodolfo Pila has been making Mexican ceramics with the help of his father since he was a boy. After attending cultural school for ceramics, he has built a repertoire blending both traditional and modern techniques. Today he makes beautiful, functional ceramics. He also makes the clay cups for our Cantaritos Kit. Learn more about him here.

    Dimensions & Care

    Dimensions: 9" H (to rim) 10.5" H (to top of handle) 4.5" Diameter at rim, 22" Diameter at center, 3.5" Diameter at base.

    Capacity: Appx. 68 oz / 2 Liters (these are all handmade so variations in size will occur).

    The hot chocolate jug gets better with time and care. It needs to be cured, but it’s worth it. To cure it, fill with cool water below its rim and heat until the water becomes warm for 10 minutes on the stove. Turn off the heat, and allow the water and pot to cool. Discard the water, and your clay pot is ready to use.

    Clean with lightly soapy water and let dry completely before storing.
