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.
Thanks to Pailin of Hot Thai Kitchen, I discovered and immediately ordered my Krok online. It arrived safely in a very well-designed package complete with instructions. I have been using it almost everyday and absolutely love it. After looking at many mortars and pestles I had given up on one that fit all my needs until I found Krok. It’s well worth the price for its quality and highly recommended. My only concern would be the life of its cork base and remains to be seen.
We're glad Pailin sent you this way and that the KROK is perfect for all your needs. No need to worry about the cork bottom, it's very durable and water resistant so should last a very long time.
This mortar and pestle are beautifully made. Heavy duty granite ensures it can take a beating and the large bowl is big enough to tackle any of your chef needs when it comes to compounding ingredients. These really are hand made as when you place your hands on the outside of the mortar you can feel the chisel marks even though you can’t see them. The Krok itself looks wonderful and performs beautifully. Customer service and support is top notch and first class in my book and I plan on buying one of these for my in-laws for Xmas. Well worth not only the price we paid for this but also the wait. Don’t hesitate to buy this. It’s worth it.
Wow, your review blew us away! I'm happy you had a positive experience with our customer service and hope you enjoy your KROK for many years to come. Great idea for the Christmas gift, they'll love it!
KROK Thai Granite Mortar and Pestle
Beautifully made, large, heavy, sturdy… everything we needed in a mortal/pestle. Was worried about spending this much on a set, but the quality is worth it! Tested it out on grinding down turmeric, it was work but I got it down to a powder.
Thanks for the lovely review! The turmeric looks great...healthy and delicious!
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.
We love to hear from people who've owned previous mortar and pestles. Thanks for the great review!
I love this mortar and pestle. Large mortal allows you to do larger quantities with out everything flying out of ot like in smaller ones
Thanks for the great review! Flying ingredients are never good so we're happy you appreciate the large capacity of your KROK.
Shipped quickly and arrived when promised. Top quality and stunning in appearance. We appreciate the follow up communication about seasoning and care.
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.
