Lovely granite, and super stable + quiet with the cork base. It does stain, but that's expected and normal with granite. This piece feels like quality and makes a great gift.
The KROK mortar and pestle was my third and final attempt to get a one that fits my needs. I had a smaller marble one before (too smooth to grind, too small), and a rough stone one that was too shallow (contents jumped out when grinding). The texture, heft, geometry of this KROK model are all perfect. Highly recommended!
We're so happy you finally found the mortar and pestle perfect for you kitchen! While it's nice to have a few laying around, you gotta make sure you have that favorite one meeting all your needs.
Sorry it's taken me awhile to send in a review. I finally found time to start cooking and after conditioning my Krok I started making humus and even made tahini. It all work so wonderfully and am so happy I purchase your beautiful product . It sits proudly on my kitchen counter and look forward to making many more great recipes.
I bet it looks lovely on your counter! The hummus and tahini sounds delicious. Isn't it cool that you can create so many steps of the same recipe in the KROK!?
A nice and heavy stone slab, very well carved out !!! It should provide a lifetime of assist with the herbs and spices. Also a valuable kitchen piece to hand down through the generations. Kudos on the fine workmanship. Thanks ,. Kurt v. A.
one of the best mortars used
Best quality I've seen very happy with the purchase would unreservedly recommend to anyone looking to purchase
We received our krok quickly and have loved it ever since! It’s the perfect size, durable, and a great design (love that the cork base keeps overall weight down). We’ve used it for spices, crushing garlic, and guacamole so far. The best!
Thanks for the great review. Isn't the cork base so nice!? Make some delicious meals with it!
The crafting is amazing and it works extremely well. So happy we got it!
Heavy duty, excellent craftsmanship, packaging included, and large enough to suit most kitchen needs.
I like it! Used it for the first time and works very well. The smell of the ingredients being crushed are surprisingly pleasant. If the power goes out I'll still be able to have fresh coffee also because I grind my beans when I want a fresh pot. This is a very cool product and I'm very happy with it.
You're right, crushing the ingredients makes the aroma come out so much more than you'd expect! Also, great idea bout the coffee beans. Thanks!
Excellent customer service and response time , your team went above and beyond! I definitely will be recommending your product to my friends and clients. Once again thank you and my wife is very satisfied. Have a Happy New Years !
We are always glad to help make sure what you receive meets your (and our) expectations. Happy to hear your positive feedback and have a happy New Year as well!
Nice to look at and a really good mortar.
Got to the United States in one piece and it looks exactly like I expected it to.
KROK Thai Granite Mortar and Pestle
Great size mortar and Pestle and very well made.
Very solid and beautiful.. happy with purchase and ready to get another as a gift!
Thanks for the love! You're right, KROK is a great gift for those who love to cook.
This is the best mortar and pestle. I just love it and the size is perfect.
I love my new Krok! It's really hard to find a mortal and pestle that is satisfying to use outside of the ones from home in Thailand. We are so glad you guys are shipping these out worldwide. One day I hope to see the clay version we use for Som tum!
We're glad we could send you a bit of Thailand! Good idea about the clay version, som tum is delicious...
I am extremely impressed by the craftsmanship of this mortar and pestle set. The weight of the pestle is just right and grinds things well. The cork base is a great added touch. I did a good amount of research before I made my decision, and I’m glad I picked the Krok brand! Thank you for offering an amazing tool for my kitchen.
I was searching for a better way to prepare flavoring products. Many good products out there but they often are very limited in their use. A mortar and pestle was suggested as one of the best tools possible. Research not only confirmed that idea but lead me to a better product that is still made by hand. Using it gives me a good feeling to support such craftsmen and I am getting more flavor from this than the usual grinder / chopper products… which are ok but I have much more than that in my Krok!
Thanks Charles! You're right about a mortar and pestle being one of the best tools! So many uses and much easier to use and clean than food processors. Glad you're happy with your KROK!
We love this product and use it every day. So many uses and great quality!
This is a great mortar. The cork base keeps the mortar from moving or scratching the countertop where it sits. The pestle is nicely shaped and fits well in my hand to grind spices. We use it to make rubs for meats, fish and vegetables. Cleanup is easy. The size is large enough to make a large portion of rubs. I spent time to research mortars, this is a great product and would recommend it to family and friends to use.
We're glad you are happy with your KROK. It's so nice to have the cork protect your countertop! And those rubs sound delicious, be sure to tag us on instagram if you post any photos of what you make.
This is a beautiful tool and not only wonderful as a tool but also nice to display in your kitchen. I definitely will order it again as a gift to some other kitchen fanatic friends.
The Krok is the perfect size. Not too small or too big. Grinds herbs and fresh veggies in an instant. It is a wonderful product! Looks good too.
