Volcanic Stone Molcajete 13cm
Molcajetes are used to crush and grind spices, and to prepare salsas and guacamole. The rough surface of the stone creates a superb grinding surface that maintains itself over time as tiny bubbles are ground down, replenishing the textured surface.
Molcajetes are also used as dish service in restaurants and homes. While recipes are usually not stewed or otherwise cooked in them, the molcajete stays hot for a very long time due to its high thermal mass, and it is not unusual for a dish to still be bubbling half an hour after serving.
