I wouldn’t exactly call it a griddle- it’s round instead of square and I could use it to cook pancakes but I usually don’t. In my grandmother’s kitchen the cast-iron comal consecrated two dozen tortillas a day. In my kitchen it merely re-heats store-bought tortillas and blesses fresh tortilla dough only when Alex has the time to make it.
This piece of cast-iron cookware has a very special place in my kitchen (heart)- it never leaves its pedestal always atop its burner on my stove.
This piece of cookware will be an heirloom for generations if you care for it properly. Wash with hot water and scrub with salt if needed. Never use soap! Dry well immediately! Rub the cookware with lard and place in a 250 degree oven for 15 minutes, pour out any excess grease and place in the oven for 2 more hours. *Tip: Do not use vegetable oil as it will result in a sticky and unseasoned pan.
