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

Two-Piece Set. Ground shipping only.
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.

  • Season the mortar before first use: grind raw rice inside the bowl until the rice turns gray; empty and repeat until the rice no longer turns gray; rinse with water and scrub with a brush.
  • Always place the molcajete on top of a cloth to avoid scratching the surface of your table or countertop.
  • Avoid drastic changes in temperature.
