Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Family Heirloom This molcajete is authentic, interesting and fun to use. As mentioned in other reviews it does need seasoning but the process was rather fun with my husband and I taking turns grinding rice, salt and a paste of garlic and herbs. We use it two or three times a week because we love guacamole and avocados are so good for your health. The texture of the guacamole made with this molcajete is perfect. We feel a connection to the families in Mexico who have used this tool for generations. We are sure to hand down this wonderful piece to one of our children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Authentically chic! I bought this molcajete for my father-in-law, who is from Mexico, and used to have a molcajete he made his salsa in, until he misplaced it. He LOVES this one! He was so happy when he saw it! He said this is just like the one he used to have. "Very authentic." I decided to buy myself one! Not only is it authentic, but it's grey color is fantastic in my kitchen! Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life changing Don't get this product if you're not committed to seasoning it properly. Yes, it takes a lot of time and effort (and you will find rice bits months after the fact) BUT so worth it once you taste the difference in your homemade guacamole and salsa.One of the best things is that because of the power/weight of the stone, if your avocado isn't perfectly ripe, you can still use it and get a great batch of guacamole anyways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is legit! I purchased this off of a bridal registry, and when it arrived to my home I opened it to make sure everything was intact and as expected. It's bigger than I expected (which I think it good). You will be able to make a nice amount of guacamole and salsa to serve at parties. Additionally, it's HEAVY, which speaks to the quality of the product. It looks like seasoning will take a while, but I think that is part of the fun if you like cooking (which the future bride and groom do!). I really want to get one for myself!! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from only half as useful so far I've primed the bowl per instructiions, but have found both the mortar and pestle hard to clean. The surface holds a lot of garlic, or avocado and I pretty much think it's going to only be used for savory flavors since the porous material seems to hold those flavors/smells.I also think you need to keep a trivet under at all times as it can be abrasive to your counter. I use it less than I thought for the above reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful and authentic! This is one of my favorite purchases recently. As others have noted it's quite a bit of work to season it properly but for me this was part of the fun, and surprisingly therapeutic. A terrific, rustic mortar and pestle, indispensable for making guacamole and authentic salsas. It looks very cool in the kitchen too. Always attracts notice and compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coming back for more! This product is fabulous! Perfect gift for someone who loves guacomole, but already has everything. I purchased one as a gift and came back to order another one! Very heavy and high quality as well. The only downside is the prep that needs to be done before use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for guac this is a great item to have in your kitchen for grinding spices, and we can make amazing guacamole thanks to his item. It is rather heavy though, and requires hand washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We received as a gift for Christmas. The whole family was around for the holidays so we all took turns in the seasoning process. We've used it many, many times already and love the way it looks, presents, and even smells! If you are giving as a gift, you may want to consider providing the seasoning materials along with it in some creative manner. I think if you had all the items available at your fingertips, the seasoning process wouldn't seem like such a 'process.' Would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have Guacamole has never tasted so good! This Molcajete is a must have. Not only is is durable and functional, it looks good. I thought the preparation of the bowl was a bit arduous, but nothing good comes easy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the serious cook My husband is obsessed with good mole sauce, and you just can't make it without a molcajete. This is a fun and useful tool to have in the kitchen, especially if you ever make chile-based sauces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Gift Idea I received my molcaiete for my birthday and absolutely love it. It did take a little time to do the formal seasoning of the molcaiete but it was well worth it. My sister and I made our first batch of guacemole this weekend and it came out fantastic. I would highly recommend this product for a gift or just for yourself if you love entertaining and love guacemole. Our guacemole tasted just like the tableside guacemole we order in our favorite mexican restaurant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Molcajete! We love having our own Molcajete to make guacamole and salsas. After seasoning it, we've used it as often as we can. Great for parties to make home-made guacamole in front of your guests, just like you're in a restaurant! Makes a wonderful gift for the guac/salsa lover too!
