Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good old fashion manual labor does need to be put in for this product. It takes forever to season and to smooth out some of the gritty, however this product is fantastic for many reasons. It is substantial in weight, looks great as a serving vessel, and gets better and well-seasoned over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a fun gift! My husband and I received this as a wedding gift and we absolutely love it. The molcajete comes with some instructions for care you have to do before you can use it, so it's important to know that you cant take it out of the box and use it immediately (it has to be seasoned first). After we seasoned it we used it and absolutely love it! Making guacamole is so much more fun with this tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome gift...but it's a work out! We really loved getting this gift. Seasoning it is no lie and work out and does take some time but it is worth it. Don't be surprise if it takes quite a few times with the rice to smooth it out. Eventually it gets easier. We make a lot of quac and this was perfect. Also recommend purchasing the OXO avocado slicer with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! Definitely PRIME this, and use your elbow grease. I love the size of this and how much guac I can make at one time. The hubby loves to use it too. Just br careful of sliding it, it may scratch counter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good but takes forever to season. We bought this months ago and it still isn't seasoned. We still see parts of the stone in the food. It's big and holds a lot but if you want to use it right away go foe a different one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger than in Mexico!! I purchased this for a wedding gift (it was on my cousin's wedding registry) and I HAD to purchase one for myself as soon as I saw how large it was!! My grandmother gave me hers and I've had it for years,but the one from Crate&Barrel is not only larger and deeper (it holds more) but it's very well made and the quality of this product is above the rest!! Be sure to SEASON it several times with rice and salt and it will last you a lifetime!! I've grounded my own spices in mine and I also use it to make a fantastic garlic paste!!

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.
