Molcajete - Square
Our molcajetes are made in Puebla by hand, and carved from large stones, and can take up to an entire day to make. The benefits of using a molcajete over a modern-day blender are that when using a blender the ingredients are chopped into small bits, whereas with a molcajete the ingredients are crushed entirely and smoothed, bringing out the full aroma, intensity, and taste of the spices.
A molcajete is a great way to give your kitchen an authentic Mexican feel while also adding real practical value. This molcajete can be used to make homemade salsas, grind spices for delicious rubs, or as a beautiful vessel to make and serve a guacamole in.
Molcajete is used for grinding chilies, garlic, tomatoes, and other ingredients that are commonly used in Mexican cuisine. The molcajete is especially great for making guacamole, salsas, and marinades as all of the ingredients can be crushed and served in the same place!
