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.
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.

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!
