Large Molinillo: Juan Alonso has spent the last 47 years making Molinillos. From small sizes to stunning 3 and 4 foot complex pieces, his work is exceptional. He works alongside with his two sons in their workshop. Estabon, 38, has been making Molinillos for 3 years with his father. Luis Alberto, 24, who studied Fine Arts at the University in Toluca.

Dimensions & Care

Hot Chocolate Jug:

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.

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).

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.

 

Traditional Large Molinillo:

Hand wash with warm soapy water.
Length - 13 - 14”
Please note: Each piece is handmade and sizes may vary slightly.
