Molcajete Medium - Mexican pestle and mortar

The Mexican pestle and mortar, a must-have for making the best salsas molcajeteadas and guacamoles.

These rustic molcajetes are made from volcanic rock, they are very rough on the inside and this is what makes them so efficient at grinding up chillies, coriander, roasted garlic and so on. This grinding action also enhances the taste of your salsa or guacamole as it helps to release essential oils.

Size: external diameter approx 19cm, internal diameter approx 15cm, height 10cm

We have two sizes of molcajetes, the third picture shows the difference in size, please measure out and choose the best size for you.


  • Storage and Preparation

    Season your molcajete by grinding uncooked rice a little at a time until there are no more visible particles of the basalt left in the rice powder. Wash with hot water only. 

    • Grind up chillies for adding to moles and salsas.
    • Smash avocados to make luxurious guacamoles.
