Love this thing. I've been making killer guac in it, and it was a great present for my boyfriend's birthday.

You have to put a lot of love into it to clean it when you get it, and season it. To clean it, you have to go to town with a handful of rice and grind it into a flour using the pestle. Do this a few times to get rid of any leftover rock chips and powder. Do this until you hate it and your hand hurts. It's the only way. Next, scrub that sucker with hot water and a firm brush, over and over. To cure it, and get a little seasoning, grind up some coarse sea salt into a fine powder, and smoosh up some garlic cloves in it to form a paste, then bake it in for a while. Make sure you got out all the rock dust, or your guac is gonna be extra crunchy (no-no). I learned that the hard way... NEVER use soap! And if you want to clean bacteria out of it, bake it to dry it out after rinsing. After the cleaning and curing, the hard work is over and it's so worth it.

Anyway, now I make a great guac with it. Grab a handful of cilantro, half an onion (diced) and about a teaspoon and a half of course sea salt, and grind it up in there with the pestle into a green paste. Then chuck in two avocados (diced), a good sided tomato (diced, no juice/seeds), the other half of the onion (diced), more cilantro (diced) if you want, and some diced jalapeno if you want some spice. Squeeze some lime on it if it's gonna sit a little while or to brighten it up, then go at it with two wooden spoons (the method they use in Mexican restaurants with table-side guac). Mash it up that way until your desired consistency. Now dive in with some tortilla chips and add more salt if you want. :) Enjoy!

I ordered this molcajete as a gift and when it arrived I was very disappointed. I ordered this specific one for my gf because it looks identical to the one we seen at a restaurant in Mexico (which she loved). When it arrived, the face looked like a puppy dog, not a bull (or w.e that picture is up top). And the head wasn't centered in the middle of the legs, it was off to the side and looks very awkward. For how much I paid for this, I'm very dissatisfied and would have mailed it back. I should have paid the extra for a better quality one that is plain.

Artisticly, it is charming. However, it came with instructions on how to finish the interior surface. It was not mentioned anywhere in the description that you would need to polish the interior for hours before you could actually use it. I would have been extremely disappointed if I had purchased for a gift and found out later that they could not even use the item.

Bought this because the price was too good to be true, and the design quirky and fun. I have a large granite molcajete I adore, and bought this as a gift. However, I'm 99% certain it is made from poured concrete that has been intentionally carved and textured to appear as genuine stone. The issue here being that despite a few hours spent grinding and "seasoning" the molcajete, it never ceased adding a distinctive layer of grit, and never will because the concrete will continue to degrade. It also arrived suspiciously packaged in a USPS box, hand-wrapped in newspaper. Buyer beware. You get what you pay for. We'll likely keep it to avoid the inconvenience of shipping back and just grow some herbs in it.

This bowl is great for guacamole, but the bowl itself is smaller than we expected. Also, this bowl does not come ready to use. It has to be primed by grinding wet rice into it. There are instructions that come with it and it only has to be done once.

Pretty sure this is made of cement... Super cute but probably not safe for food... Hard to verify but we bought a different one in addition to this and it seems to be made of better material.
