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.

Your KROK Mortar and Pestle comes packaged with the cork base and a traditional Thai scraping spoon. The spoon is perfect for removing ingredients, cleaning off the pestle, and even measuring (volume is 1½ tbsp).

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!

Mortar

  • Height: 4.2" / Outer Diameter: 6.7" / Inner Diameter: 5.1" / Depth: 3.1"

As each KROK is individually made by hand, there may be slight variations in shape and size. No two pieces are exactly the same.

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.
  • Scraping Spoon: Strong stainless steel, resistant to rust, dishwasher safe.

Due to the use of natural granite, slight color variations are possible.

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.

Mortar and pestle

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!

Usage issue

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!

Excellent Tool

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.

Love this mortar and pestle!

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
