Details

Prepare herbs, spices and sauces the way our ancestors did--with handmade stone tools. The Comonfort Group presents this heart-shaped basalt bowl, crafted by hand in a labor-intensive process.

The artisans recommend that the bowl be "cured" before the first use. To cure the molcajete, place some dried beans, corn or rice in the bowl and grind with the pestle until pulverized. Allow the pulverized grain to sit for 15 minutes. Once this has been done, the molcajete can be hand washed and allowed to dry. This step will ensure that any stone dust remaining from the carving process does not affect the food.

"Authentic and Very Beautiful"

Beautiful stone mortar pestle. The design is perfect and the weight is very substantial 4-5 pounds. Very nice for working with dried whole spice, herbs, and creating stone ground whole grains.

"Grand Tradition indeed"

This beautiful molcajete arrived so well packed and was shipped so quickly. I have a smaller one that I had for years and was looking for a bigger one. After curing it I made a salsa grande! Have made beautiful guacamole in it. It truly is a unique piece.

"Reminds me of my grandmother"

She had a molcajete just like this one on her kitchen counter for many years. This is a terrific tool--its heavy, easy to use (once cured according to the instructions) and makes incredible guac. Ive used it many times, and its an impressive serving dish too. Im so glad to be able to support genuine artisans, and this will be a valued item in my kitchen for many years.

"Molcajete is a Work of Art!!!"

Thank you to the Artisan who made this Gorgeous Molcajete for me. After curing it, I made a delicious Salsa Roja, and an Amazing Guacamole, served in this beautiful Molcajete! The Molcajete grinds garlic, peppercorns, roasted onions, whatever you desire, beautifully! I am so very Happy with this Molcajete. I highly recommend every kitchen should have one of these Beauty. It arrived well wrapped and before the expected time frame.
