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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our favorite wedding present! We got this a few years ago for a wedding present and it is our absolute favorite present. We use it all the time when we have guests. Take the time to follow the directions on how to season it as it will make your guac even more flavorful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Guac! My husband loves making guacamole, it's really the only item he "cooks". We received this on our wedding registry and have used it countless times in the past year. No more lumpy guacamole! It feels authentic to use and it's not as difficult to clean as some people indicate, as long as you don't let it sit too long.
