Artisanal crafted. The mortar & pestle are just the right dimension, size & weight for everyday food preparation. Thank you Krok for coming up with such quality product. Looking forward for many years of use.
I was so excited to find a handcrafted mortar and pestle! I already own a few mortars, but this one stands out! The material and design exceeded my expectations and compared to my others this has the perfect size, both the volume of the mortar and the length of the pestle. I already used it for marinades, compound butter and to crush spices. Looking forward to trying out even more!
This mortar & pestle is absolutely beautiful. If you're looking for great quality read on.

This Mortar is in perfect shape and size and it looks beautiful!
I love to work with it!
A must for the home cook! Our guac is amazing now, this really releases flavors! We followed the instructions and we get compliments whenever we use for a party. Very happy with my purchase!
I collect mortars and pestles and this one was a nice addition. There’s a wonderful handcrafted story behind it and I think the cork ring as a material contrast to the stone bowl is magnificent. The pestle, though, doesn’t feel quite as well-considered, design-wise (materially, functionally or aesthetically), as the rest. But perhaps that can be remedied somewhat by painting the top gray piece with a glossy and vibrant, contrasting color. Still, a keeper piece at a reasonable price. Buy one. And more as gifts for friends.
This was an impulsive purchase but certainly a worthy one. It is delightfully heavy and the pestle is well balanced. I tested it out by making aioli the classic way (just garlic and oil) and it was perfectly emulsified. I have used it to grind large handfuls of spices as well as break up nuts to fold into baked goods. Doesn't hurt that it's beautiful as well!
Everything I’ve made with my Krok so far has been delicious. There’s something about the way a mortar and pestle melds flavors together that you just can’t replicate with a blender or food processor. I’ve made salsa and hot sauce and pulverized dried herbs for cooking, and each time it cleans out quickly and easily with a little water. Very satisfied with this product so far.
Luv it. Use it almost daily. The size is just right and it’s nice that the Krok is still light due to the cork. And-I love that it is handmade. Highly recommend it.
Well worth the wait. It’s very heavy and takes up a bit of room....but it is almost like a sculpture and is lovely setting on the counter.
I didn't really know what I was missing until I first used my Krok mortar and pestle. The quality and craftsmanship are truly exceptional. I would recommend this to every home cook.
the mortar and pestle was worth the wait! we love it. we’ve been using it for sauces, guacamole, and grinding up spices. the craftsmanship on it is great. highly recommend
Haven't gotten the chance to use it much, but it's beautiful. I love the cork base, it seems to actually (as it's said to) disperse some of the sound when using it. Everything feels super solid, and I love the booklet that shows who made it. Thank you!
I am so pleased with my new mortar and pestle from Krok. The individual craftsmanship is not only beautiful, but it’s design makes my food and herb prep efficient and enjoyable! I would highly recommend this for all cooks and herbalists!
I’ve used my mortar and pestle twice now. First time it took about an hour to render my Thai Green curry ingredients to paste. Decent but needs more work. To day I made a fermented red hot chili sauce using a variety of garden grown garlic, dried and fresh chilis and salt. It took about 45 minutes this time. I find a pre chop helps! As opposed to a stick blender, there is a different and I think more robust flavor form the hand grinding. It also is quite contemplative..... I think every kitchen needs one. It’s well worth the money.
Excellently crafted, beautiful piece to add to your home. Also I greatly appreciate the disclaimer that these take time to make and are done so in small batches. Very well worth the wait time.
Worth the wait for a beautifully made to order mortar and pestle. A lifetime treasure.
