The best comals

When you are craving that artisan taste, you need a comal to bring out the unmistakable aromas of warm corn and the complex, earthy flavors of your tortillas. You’ll feel like you’ve taken a trip south of the border without ever leaving the comfort of your own kitchen.

Comales are versatile kitchen utensils that can do a whole lot more than heating up tortillas. Use them to make French crepes, Indian naan, or Venezuelan arepa and add an international flair to your home cooking. These handy pans can also be used to toast spices and nuts, grill vegetables, or even sear meat. Let’s take a look at our favorite comales.
