I ordered it for my husband for his birthday and he was so thrilled with the well made product. It’s incomparable to the one he ordered for himself. He’d never seen such craftsmanship and that amount of strength in a large capacity.
We're so happy your husband is thrilled with the KROK and appreciates the craftsmanship. Thanks for the lovely photos and we hope he makes you lots of delicious meals with his KROK!
Garlic peeled but very hard to pulverize.
Thanks for the 5 star review! To help with the garlic paste, you can add a pinch of chunky salt to act as an abrasive. For a very smooth paste, some people cut the cloves into a few pieces before adding to their KROK. But this isn't really necessary if you're going for a rougher texture. Hopefully this will help in the future!
This mortar and pestle set is a great tool. The Large capacity allows for plenty of room for ingredients and the pestle is the perfect size and weight to smash and grind. I’d but it again.
Received my KROK mortar and pestle and as soon as I unboxed, the pestle dropped and broke. Thanks for being kind enough to send another in no time! Can't wait to use.
We're glad you received the new pestle quickly! Hope you make some great meals with the KROK. Don't forget to check out our recipes page for inspiration: https://krokcraft.com/blogs/recipes
You can tell it’s been handcrafted! It has such a unique design and shape. I’m absolutely in love with it! Thanks KROK!
Thank you! We love that you're in love. Make some delicious dishes!
Just love this product.

Thanks for the 5 stars and beautiful picture!
KROK Thai Granite Mortar and Pestle
The Krok is the absolute nicest Mortar & Pestle I have ever owned and used. The fact that they are made by skilled craftspeople makes it all the more special. Highly recommended.
We love to hear from those who owned previous mortar and pestles. Thanks for the love!
Love love love this. Well made. Easy to clean and use. Worth the money!!! Can’t wait to see what amazing dishes I can make
Thank you! We're excited about the amazing dishes as well. Be sure to tag us if you post them so we can see what you come up with!
The piece is beautiful. I haven’t used it yet but have seasoned it and it is ready for use. Waiting for my new kitchen to be completed.
Within the first day, after preparing and seasoning the mortar according to the instructions included with the KROK, I used it to make a homemade green curry paste. The aromas coming from the KROK were outstanding: fresh chiles, garlic, Thai basil, cilantro. The large capacity kept everything contained and it was enjoyable to use. Clean up was so easy. It sits on my counter...always at the ready. The KROK is a work of art, high quality and the skill of the crafter is evident. I'm pleased to support the KROK mortar and pestle crafters and their local community. Highly recommend
Thank you for the love and support! The green curry sounds lovely, it always smells so delicious when pounding in the KROK.
Well made mortar and pestle. Love the cork on the bottom which makes it stable while using.
Love this !
I love it! Great quality. I use it much more than I thought I would, almost daily. I no longer mince garlic, I just pound it up in a couple of seconds and it’s ready to go. It’s a great size for Pesto and Guacamole. Beautiful granite. Very happy with the purchase.
Thanks for the love! It is perfect for quick uses like your garlic. Another daily use of ours is grinding black peppercorns instead of using a pepper grinder (or pre-ground pepper). For even more deliciousness, toast the peppercorns until fragrant on a dry skillet before grinding.
Have had my KROK for a few weeks now and we use it practically everyday. It looks great on the counter and works like a dream. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a new, larger, smaller, or otherwise different mortar and pestle.
Need to come up with an extra large
We wanted to replace an older mortar and pestle that broke with something special and i think we managed to that :). This is not cheap, but well worth the money if you are looking for a quality m&p.
Glad you're continuing the use of a mortar and pestle in your home with KROK. Here's to many years of delicious food!
Got this for my boyfriend as a holiday gift! He was so excited to use it! He made me the best guacamole I’ve ever had in my life in it haha
We absolutely love the quality and workmanship of our KROK.
As a product and company, I can't recommend Krok enough.
We ordered ours just before Christmas, after searching and not finding a proper pestle and mortar. We got regular updates, and it was made and delivered within a few weeks! (They were also really friendly and fast answering questions I had).
The mortar and pestle themselves are solid granite, and the pestle is very comfortable to hold. The weight makes grinding so much easier, and the mortar itself is large enough to not worry about bits going everywhere!
Very happy with it! :)
Thanks for the glowing review! We were happy to help and glad you're enjoying the KROK.
Ordered this for my new year's gift and I am not disappointed!
The product feels solid on hands and it gives that light granite color you rarely find elsewhere.
See how it looks in my kitchen display!
Love the product, good quality and authentic.
