Best gift for the fun loving cook
I received my molcajete yesterday and it is perfect. I wasn't sure about the bowl size, but it is great for creating salsa or guacamole in a larger amount. My interior bowl size is 7" in diameter, about 3" deep. I would guess it would comfortably hold about 3 cups of salsa or guacamole. Overall the pig is about 11" snout to butt. I'll add a photo next to the coffeemaker for scale. The shipping was fast and the pig arrived in great shape, well packed in a box within a box and extra padding. It is a 10 lb pig, so handle it carefully - I have already smoothed the sharp bowl edges with the pestle. This item is both art and function, LOVE it.He's great looking on the countertop, just as awesome serving on the table. Watch the feet, they may scratch your countertop unless you adhere plastic feet (glides) on them (I will do this next!) That's actually a pro - this bowl is made to grind!

Recently returned from a trip to Mexico where we took a cooking class making salsas. I wanted to purchase a molcajete in Mexico to make sure it was authentic, but they're rather heavy to carry on a plane. I found this molcajete at Mexgrocer and ordered it. it's the exact one we used at our cooking classes in Mexico and has the cute pig head I wanted. We're making roasted salsa tonight and I can't wait to try it I LOVE this piece and am very happy with my purchase, great communication and quick shipping from Mexgrocer.Authentic, decorative, heirloom quality, great price

Was surprised at the type of stone this was. I expected more of the negra coarse basalt. I have limited experience with molcajetes and was hoping for one like my last one. This one seems like it's closer to being some other kind of stone, than to the porous basalt I wanted. However I decided to keep it and give it a try. I ground up a pile of rice in it, washed it, ground in some garlic, lathered rinsed repeated. Then I proceeded to make some salsa a guacamole. It worked just fine and I didn't find any grit. I think it's a keeper, and it should work just fine. It's big enough that I can make decent sized batches.The pig head, and bowl size Nothing

Cute and functional
This item looks cute and serves its purpose wonderfully. My only complaint is that it arrived with a huge chip on the rim even though it was wrapped in an abundant amount of bubble wrap.It works well for what I use I for- making salsa! It was chipped and crumbly at the damaged spot. It took a few washes to get the extra bits of stone washed away so it was safe to use. That wore away at the product and made the damaged area even bigger.

The real deal!
After watching Rick Bayless make molcajete salsa I knew I wanted to have one. Ordered it. Took over a week to hear anything about it shipping and tracking. once it shipped it arrived on the day tracking said it would. Was excited to make salsa in it that night but realized I needed to season it first. Followed the directions on mexgrocer to a T! Let's just say I cannot say enough good things about this. Real! Not a knock off. Looks great! Looking forward to using this for the rest of my life and proud to know it will still be making salsa long after I'm gone. That's how awesome this is. About $40 bucks is a small price to pay for a hand made heirloom piece.

Review for Molcajete Stone Mortar with Pig head
This molcajete is excellent. Carved from basalt, no two are exactly alike. Wide enough and deep enough to really use. Better than the 'Molcajete Pig Head (Stone Bowl)' also sold here, and that one is actually pretty good, too. Worth every penny.
