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.

Immediately put it to use!

Within the first day, after preparing and seasoning the mortar according to the instructions included with the KROK, I used it to make a homemade green curry paste. The aromas coming from the KROK were outstanding: fresh chiles, garlic, Thai basil, cilantro. The large capacity kept everything contained and it was enjoyable to use. Clean up was so easy. It sits on my counter...always at the ready. The KROK is a work of art, high quality and the skill of the crafter is evident. I'm pleased to support the KROK mortar and pestle crafters and their local community. Highly recommend

Thank you for the love and support! The green curry sounds lovely, it always smells so delicious when pounding in the KROK.
