Comments about Product: Great looking piece. 1st use I notice a rusty spot developing on the bottom. Later in the day I notice there is a film coming off the inside. Looks almost like latex paint. The surface below seems to be ok, but wonder what the long term life-span of this product may be. Cast Iron, I thought it would be fine for years to come....we shall see. I said no on the recommendation since I intend to use it, and see a questionable product. If it is for looks only, I am quite pleased.
Comments about Product: Used on catalic wood stove, which depending on stove model some may not get hot enough to produce steam.
Seasoned per internet instructions prior to use.
Heavy, looks great, well worth the money.
Exact discription and very fast delivery.
Comments about Product: This item arrived promptly, was high quality, and looks nice. The only surprise was that it was much taller than I thought it would be, and the back of the chair stands up quite high. I would have preferred the design on the top to not be quite so large, and in retrospect might have chosen something with a lower profile. However if you want it to stand out, this is for you!
Comments about Product: I have the Adirondack chair and fire pit steamer. I just love the way it looks on my wood stove. It is always a conversation piece when I have visitors. I always add a drop of scented oil to my steamer to add scent to the air and protect the cast iron from rust spots. I have had mine for a year and love it!!
Comments about Product: I was SO pleased when we received this steamer. It's really pretty.
A little unsure of the quality since, on the 2nd day, after putting water in it and placing it on our stove, I looked in to check the water level and noticed a "rust" spot in the bottom. Anxious to see if it causes problems down the line.
Want to step in for Santa? We happen to know this is high on _______'s Christmas list!
The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
