instructions?

I got this but it didn't come with any instructions. Can you advise me re care and washing? It is dirty with a sandy grit even though it says pre-seasoned?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2011
Best Answer: How To Season or Prepare Your Molcajete Before UseSeasoning is a method of preparing a porous surface to inhibit any unwanted flavors, decrease sticking or to smooth an overly rough surface. It is necessary to season the molcajete prior to using to avoid any large grit in your food.1. Wash and scrub the interior of the molcajete and the tejolote with water and a stiff brush. Let both objects air dry. Now proceed to steps 2 and 3. We like the combination of both methods or you may select one or the other. This process only needs to be completed one time.2. Put a handful of uncooked rice in the molcajete. Use the tejolote ( the pestle) and grind the rice into the surface of the molcajete (bowl). Discard the pulverized rice. Repeat the process until the pulverized rice is white, rather than gray or ash colored. If your molcajete is ""pre-seasoned"" you can skip this step.3. Add 4 cloves of garlic (peeled), 1 teaspoon of cumin (comino) and 1 teaspoon salt, kosher is good, and a teaspoon of pepper. Grind the mixture evenly around the interior of the molcajete. Remove and discard the mixture. Rinse the molcajete and tejolote with clear water and allow to dry before storing. Note that these ingredients and quantities can be adjusted to your liking and for the size of your molcajete.MaintenanceSimply wash the molcajete and tejolote in warm water after each use. Don't use detergents because the soap and any perfumes may be absorbed into the stone and taint your food. Molcajetes can be put in a dishwasher with caution. Don't place close to fragile dinnerware. If you want to sanitize a molcajete you can also scrub the stone well with soap and hot water then rinse and place in a 350 degree oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. Use oven mitts to remove the molcajete from the oven and sit on a surface than can be exposed to high heat. Allow to cool before use

what is the diameter and depth of mixing section
A shopper on Mar 1, 2011
Best Answer: I was actually just asked this question recently, so I would be more than happy to provide this info for you.The mixing section of this pig is 2"" deep with roughly a 4"" diameter. It may also interest you to know that this pig stands 4 3/4"" high, is 10 1/2"" from head-to-tail, 8"" wide, and weighs a whopping 16 1/2 lbs

Is this too big to use for small amounts of spices (dry-grinding) ?
ChtVA on Aug 31, 2014
Best Answer: If you're just doing small amounts of spices, it's probably a little too big.
