Good price for a genuine handmade kitchen tool
January 18, 2016
I ordered several molonillos (Mexican chocolate stirrers) as part of my Christmas Gift Baskets ... with Ibarra chocolate discs, themed mugs and How-To recipes on using the wooden tool to prepare Mexican Hot Chocolate. I checked many web sites and found MexGrocer had BEST PRICES styles and size molonillos I wanted for my gifts. Also, MexGrocer enclosed an extra, larger and fancier model carved molonillo as a bonus; which I appreciated. This is a good modest price for a hand-carved traditional kitchen tool. This tool PLUS authentic Ibarra chocolate tablets I also ordered from MexGrocer are well worth it.
Pros:Good price for the "medium" sized hand-carved molonillo, and I did comparison shop. Good proactive customer service, in enclosing a larger version "extra" molonillo to compensate one pre-packaged defective tool. More than balanced out.
Cons:Took far longer than 5 days for shipping between West and East coasts ... at least for shipping by FedEx or UPS. Would have preferred to select option of US Postal Service, which does a better delivery job than either FedEx or UPS. HOWEVER, even tho it took almost 14 days to ship, this order was placed only 10 days before Christmas day and busiest shipping season. Which explains delay.
