Comments about Product: I am very unhappy with this item I gave as a gift. I borrowed it to confirm for myself that no smoke or steam comes the stack period. I tested with several full blaze wood stove fires. Overnight, hardly any water evaporates. My old basket weave steamer is much better! We will try to drill more holes in the top for improved evaporation. Do not order this item.
Comments about Product: Right away my husband placed this on our wood stove and filled it with water after opening it on Christmas. I was ecstatic over how much he loved it! After a day or so of waiting for it to heat up we found ourselves several times staring down at it together to watch the steam come out. Oh…… what fun!! LOL I am so happy I ordered this for our home! It is nicely made and heavy duty. It looks great on our stove!!
Comments about Product: Our daughter gave us this steamer as a Christmas gift to replace the copper-bottomed soup pot we were using on our woodburner. We filled it Christmas Day and it had only steamed out about an inch of water by the third day. Our soup pot is back on the woodburner.
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!
