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 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.
