Product Description


Traditionally carved out of a single block of volcanic stone and supported by three short legs, molcajetes are used to crush and grind spices, and prepare salsas, moles, and guacamole. Because of the rough stone surface, molcajetes are known to "season" (much like cast iron skillets), carrying over flavors from one preparation to another. Salsas and guacamole prepared in molcajetes are known to have a distinctive texture, and some also carry a subtle difference in flavor.

Molcajetes can also be used as a cooking tool, by heating it to a high temperature using an open fire or hot coals, and then using to heat its food contents. And for serving, the molcajete stays hot for an extremely long time, and it is not unusual for a dish to still be bubbling a half hour after serving.

Carved from natural volcanic stone. Made in Mexico.
