The KROK Mortar and Pestle is made in small batches and requires 3 days of craftsmanship. Each KROK is handcrafted by artisans in Thailand, who have been hand carving natural granite in the Ang Sila village for generations.

Why KROK will be your favorite Mortar and Pestle:

  • Perfect Size: Large enough to use for any recipe, but small and light enough to use for everyday cooking.
  • Light & Sturdy: Our unique design creates an optimal balance between light weight and sturdiness. This makes the KROK easy to use and easy to clean.
  • Quality Granite: We use the highest quality Thai granite, guaranteeing lifetime durability.
  • Anti-Scratch: The cork base keeps the mortar from slipping or scratching your countertop.
  • Noise Reduction: The cork naturally reduces the noise transmission as you pound.

As an ancient cooking tool used for thousands of years, nothing beats the mortar and pestle for crushing, grinding, and powdering. KROK is the perfect kitchen tool for making authentic pesto, guacamole, marinades, dry rubs, chimichurri, hummus, aioli, salad dressings, and spice blends from scratch. Get your own KROK and release the full flavor of your herbs and spices!

We’ve created a mortar and pestle completely sourced from highest quality natural materials.
  • Mortar & Pestle: Unpolished natural granite, sourced from the mountains of Thailand, durable, food-safe.
  • Cork Base: Environmentally-sourced cork that is 100% biodegradable, recyclable and renewable.

How long does shipping take?
KROK orders are shipped in batches directly from Thailand. Depending on your location, our express air delivery takes between 3 - 7 business days. You will receive a tracking number to track your package.

Are the materials safe to use with food?
We use the highest quality Thai granite which is one of the strongest stones in the world. Before cooking with the mortar and pestle we recommend conditioning the granite surface to make sure it is even and safe to use. We provide clear guidelines to do so.

The cork base is impermeable. Cork trees produce Suberin which is a substance that makes cork resistant to the passage of moisture and formation of mold or rot.

What is your return policy?
If you feel that our product did not meet your expectations, please return it back within 30 days. You can let us know in advance if you have any issues regarding any part of your KROK set.

Nice piece

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.

Beautiful and well made

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!
