Combining our unique design with the highest quality Thai granite and natural cork, we’ve created a mortar and pestle that is more efficient, sturdier, lighter, and easier to clean.
We’ve narrowed the walls of the standard mortar to create more capacity and to lighten the weight of the tool, while ensuring optimal sturdiness.
The unpolished interior of the mortar combined with the unpolished end of the pestle is ideal for crushing and grinding, making any ingredient into your desired texture.
The even, round shape of the bowl will make sure no ingredient can hide in a corner from your pestle as you smash down and around the bowl.
Our cork base has numerous benefits: dampening noise as you pound, keeping the mortar from slipping or scratching your countertop, and keeping the total weight of the mortar lighter.
Cork is a natural, 100% biodegradable substance that is easy to clean, water resistant and durable enough to last the lifetime of your mortar.
The impermeability of cork makes sure that no substances from cooking or cleaning will ever damage the base, nor form any mold or bacteria, which is why it found its usage as a lid in wine bottles.
The major difference in our pestle is length. We wanted it long enough so you would never hit the side of your hand on the mortar.
The upper end of the pestle is narrow enough for comfortable handling while the lower end widens out to make sure no ingredient can hide from your pounding.
Unpolished granite on the bottom of the pestle makes it perfect for grinding down tough herbs and spices.
Every KROK is unique and made for you on a bespoke basis. Our mortar and pestle is handcrafted by highly-skilled Thai artisans in the Ang Sila village, which is located south-east of Bangkok. The craftsmen in this village are known for the exceptional quality of their handmade mortars and pestles, and have worked with natural granite for generations.
Each KROK is individually handcrafted by one of these artisans with their experience and mastery. The KROK Mortars and Pestles are made in small batches and require 3 days of craftsmanship.
Every KROK is shipped in safe double-layered packaging to avoid any damage during transportation. We make sure all pieces arrive in your hands as they left Thailand. On top of that, we include a free shipping insurance. Our packaging materials are 100% plastic-free to minimize the environmental footprint.

I purchased this a gift for my brother. While we haven't actually used it yet, the quality and the overall presence of the mortar and pestle is just amazing. I'm sure, to pick myself up one in the near future as well.
The Krok mortar and pestle is an awesome product. It’s so cool seeing the band tooling marks. It’s very well made and will undoubtedly last for a very long time.
I love the shape of the mortar, and the size of the pestle, which makes it so much easier to use than the ones I have. It's a very versatile tool and the craft is second to none.
