Pichancha is the name given to this cooking utensil used in Mesoamerican cultures to strain nixtamalized corn. The word pichancha comes from the tzotzil language pin, meaning pot and chachab, strainer. Hence strainer pot.
The beautiful, soft shine of this craft is accomplished by burnishing the pot. Its classic sound shape makes it ideal for any kitchen interior concept.
