Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Makes making guacamole so easy! We got this as a wedding gift and have used it every time we have had friends over. It is a bit hard to clean and the initial seasoning process took some time but was worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maravilloso! I bought this for my husband's birthday and although it took us a month to season it (we could only crush the salt for a short time!) it was worth the effort! The easiest way to clean it is with salt, just as you would a cast iron pan. It is very heavy, but beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Traditional Lava Mortar and Pestle! Very happy with this traditional molcajete. The price is reasonable and the quality is good. Prefer it to the granite molcajete. The guacomole is so good. There is never any leftovers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Guacamole This was the best Christmas present ever! We love to cook and Mexican Dishes are some of our favorite. Guacamole is so easy to make with the Molcaiete. The ingredients are able to be blended without distroying the taste or the texture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you love fresh guacamole I bought this a few months ago after watching one used on The Chew. First the cons, it is quite heavy, it does take a lot of work initially to wear down the grit and season the bowl (we took turns with our kids grinding the rice), if you are making a lot of guacamole (3+ avocados) you need to make it in batches and I end up using a scrub brush to get the nooks and crevices thoroughly clean since using soap would destroy the built up seasoning. All that said, it does a wonderful job of infusing the avocados with just the right amount of garlic, cumin etc. to make amazing fresh guacamole. Most things worth having take work, so if you don't mind a little extra work to have exceptional guacamole don't be put off by the "cons".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for mexican cooking Bought this after taking a cooking class in Mexico. Although seasoning the bowl is time consuming it is well worth it for the authentic experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes the best guacamole Because the bowl and pestle aren't completely smooth, you get really nice guacamole with some chunks in it. The crushing action I think releases the flavor of things like cilantro and jalapeno much better than cutting.It does take forever to "season" though, and you will build some serious arm muscles. We did it according to the instructions (ground dry rice into it about 4 or 5 times until we basically had powder, and there weren't any jagged edges or pieces of rock coming off in the rice, then ground rock salt into it 2 or 3 times, then ground some hard seasonings like cumin into it for added flavor). It is also hard to clean--we use a brush (no soap) and hot water, sometimes soaking it for awhile first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Real Deal Been looking for one of these for some time. It is exactly like the one my mom used when we were growing up. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little guacamole maker My friend purchased this for me because I love all things guacamole. In theory, this is a fun little thing to have.I do find that it's easier to make the guacamole in another container and just use this for serving. This thing is REALLY heavy so other items are a bit easier to maneuver. The only thing I don' like about this is the cleaning. It's not dishwasher safe and you can't use regular detergents. It's sort of like owning a cast iron pan in terms of its care.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass The molcajete was the first thing we registered for when we got married. We make guacamole weekly and thought it was a great idea. We carefully followed the seasoning instructions and still ended up with rocks in our food. It is very heavy and takes up a lot of storage space. We still make guacamole weekly in a traditional mixing bowl. This product is collecting dust in the bottom of a closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wedding gift purchase! My best friend LOVED receiving this item! So much she sent me a picture of her using it & brought me some of their first batch! She was thrilled!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Gift! We bought this as a wedding gift for some friends who love to entertain - within a day of receiving it we received rave reviews and even a picture of their first batch of guacamole they made. We had the box delivered to our house first, and it was snugly packed (we were a little concerned it could break in transit) though pretty heavy which added to the shipping cost. It is now our go-to gift that they will never expect and we are ordering one for ourselves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I picked this up after catching my husband make guacamole in my marble mortar and pestle. We love that we get great guacamole every time with an authentic taste. Depending on the day we sometimes use a fork instead of the stone to vary the texture. Washing is easy. I run hot water with the sprayer until clean.
