Lejenik / Cooking device for the table


Inspired by the ancient Mayan tradition of making tortillas, Lejenik is a Comal which brings people of today’s households together around the table so that each can create tortillas, pupusas and other similar typical Latin American dishes at their own taste. The object is made of a ceramic composite. In the interior there is an electric heating resistor spiral, which is controlled by the touch sensor buttons on the border of the main plate. The heat is isolated from the border and bottom of the appliance in order to keep users from burning. It includes a press which helps users to flatten the dough balls without getting their hands dirty.
