Pujols Kitchen was brought to life after years of studying alongside some of the great women cooks I know personally, both in the Dominican Republic and the United States. I was so inspired by the ingredients, the cooking methods, and the pots they were using to cook in (known as calderos).
I decided to create a line of cookware that would reflect the authenticity of their original aluminum calderos, while featuring a contemporary, innovative look and feel.
The designs incorporated into Pujols Kitchen cookware reflect an ancient Dominican Indian art that is most commonly used for souvenirs, but is symbolic to the people of the DR. I also added features for safety, like silicone on the handles of the utensils, as well as glass lid handles for resisting heat. As an added convenience, the cookware is oven and dishwasher safe. I made sure this cookware could be put to use in any situation and still produce great results.
That's why I took my cookware to the ladies in the communities where I spend much of my time, and who taught me many of their recipes. I asked them to put Pujols Kitchen cookware to the test. They cook in different ways, including on the stove top and on an anafe (a method of cooking directly over charcoal). I made sure the friends who had inspired me were equally inspired by the cookware I had created. In fact, they were very excited about the new features, the feel, and how great the pots cooked.
The Batea communities of the Dominican Republic, where much of our mission work is done, are the starting line for a global mission to fulfill a physical and spiritual hunger through Pujols Kitchen cookware and non-perishable foods. Please join me to make a global difference -- one piece of cookware at a time.
Thank you for your purchases and prayers as we serve others.
