All our molcajetes are entirely handcrafted in Jalisco, Mexico.


Season the molcajete prior to first use: grind raw rice and sea salt inside the bowl until the rice turns grey, empty and repeat until the rice no longer turns grey, rinse with water and scrub with a brush.

Always place the molcajete on top of a cloth to avoid scratching counter or table tops.

Avoid drastic changes in temperature.

Hand wash with running water, dry thoroughly.
