Great gift idea! Review by Erin
Presentation is everything, and the molcajete I bought from Ace Mart makes for fun, authentic presentation of guacamole, salsa etc.. I liked mine so much that I buy them to give as gifts along with a copy of our guacamole recipe that always gets raves. For a more involved gift along this theme, you could also include glasses for margaritas or mojitos, a nice cocktail recipe book and little decorative pots of fresh herbs needed to make favorite cocktails. (i.e. mint for mojitos)
The 12 oz. size was the right size for us, whether it's just for my husband and me or a party of 20. (since you'll have other snacks, and can always refill it if need be) I'm glad I chose this plastic version over one of the stone ones- it looks tasteful and is easy to care for.

Perfect size for making guacamole!! Review by Guacamole Maker
During a vacation to Mexico, my family loved the fresh guacamole and pico. So this is the perfect dish to make our own. I bought one for myself, mother, and sister!! (Posted on 11/11/2009)
Just What I Have Been Looking For Review by ginjon
I have been searching for this product and could not find a plastic one at any retail stores. This is perfect for guacamole, light weight and easy to clean unlike the heavy stone ones. It could be a little bigger but I am happy to have found a place to buy just one. Some restaurant supply places wanted to sell me a dozen or more. (Posted on 9/24/2009)

Just what I wanted! Review by Mimi
I have been looking for a large molcajete to serve guacamole in just like they do in the Mexican restaurants. I finally found it after several attempts. I ordered two different products from other sources and they were the small ones that I already have and use for picante or small servings of guacamole. I decided to try a restaurant supply business and voila! It's just what I wanted and I've used it already. (Posted on 5/31/2009)
A "must have" for Mexican cuisine Review by Shooter_Cole
This is great item for preparing chunky guacamole for a group of 4-6. Also, great for ceviche salsa and other dips. (Posted on 4/10/2009)
