Description

Eye-catching size adds drama to your setting, whether you’re using it to serve guacamole or salsa for large groups, or to decorate by filling it with peppers, flowers or candles floating in water. Made of lava stone.

The mortar and pestle carved from volcanic rock is among the world's oldest kitchen tools. Our molcajete (mortar) and tejolete (pestle) are hand carved from a single piece of basalt rock, making each piece unique.

Weight is approximately 35 pounds. Because it is made of natural rock there are slight variations.

Two-Piece Set. Ground shipping only. Wipe clean. 12" diam., 8" total height.

For the larger size to make guacamole from scratch as I use to have in Hamburger Hamlet in Los Angeles

Trying out new recipes. I also wanted the other preseason molcajete, but didn't want a pig's face on mine. I prefer simple designs.
Sara K on May 30, 2015
Wanted a large molcajete to cook food, not just guac and salsa
Nikki A on Apr 16, 2015
Because it is big and I can make guac in it
Mary Beth G on Feb 25, 2015
We love to entertain as well as we have a LARGE family, so this looks like it will fill the bill. Can't wait to make molcajete for my friends!

Perfect for large parties for dip, guacamole or salsa....I'm already loving it! Great deal without having to travel into Guadalajara....
Joanna R on Dec 22, 2014
Hubby has been wanting a molcajete for years. I figured go big - making the wait worthwhile. He loves a conversation starter and this should do it!!
Jennifer T on Dec 19, 2014
It 's a good price and a beautiul kitchen tool. I saw people served with a molcajete meal yesterday at a local restaurant and it was amazing.

what is the capacity sz?

its big but its not deep and then what is the difference in capacity between this oversized one and lets say a reg 8"" one?...plus the dark colored one is the one for sale? the lighter color with the hand and the quac inside looks much deeper which one is for sale
A shopper on Nov 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The 8"" molcajete is 1 1/2"" deep and holds 3 cups. The oversized molcajete is 3 1/2"" deep and holds 18 cups. Because this is made of naturally occuring lava rock, no two of them look the same. Both images available online show molcajetes of the same size and shape
What is pestle length on this oversized molcajete?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My pestle is 4 inches long, and easy to handle. I am very pleased.
Does this really hold 18 cups? Seems like 8 cups would be more likely. Also, I want to warm this in a 400 degree oven and serve hot food in it. Our local Mexican restaurant does this and the meal stays hot the whole evening. I didn't read that it is oven safe. Is it?
dani S on Aug 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does. I actually measured its capacity myself about a year ago. Please note, however, that this was a fluid capacity.
Can I pick up this item at one of your Colorado stores? live near the Boulder store but willing to go to another one of your stores in Colorado.
A shopper on Jul 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This Molcajete is only available online.
Where is the Preseasoned Pig Molcajete manufactured?

Could I pick this up at your Walnut Creek CA Store ? if not what is the shipping cost to 94565 zip code
A shopper on Oct 28, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Eye-catching size adds drama to your setting, whether you’re using it to serve guacamole or salsa for large groups, or to decorate by filling it with peppers, flowers or candles floating in water. Made of lava stone. Wipe clean. 12" diam., 8" total height.

The Walnut Creek CA store does have one in store, but it is a floor model, so there is no box for it. If you want to pick it up at the store, I would suggest calling them to have it set aside with your name on it. We can ship one to you from our warehouse and the shipping cost for that would be approximately $20.00 for the ground shipping. Because of the weight, size and material this item is made from, it is not available for upgraded express or overnight shipping.

Weight is approximately 35 pounds. Because it is made of natural rock there are slight variations.

Two-Piece Set. Ground shipping only
