Granadillo Wood Molinillo


Molinillo (whisk) is a traditional, charming and decorative wooden utensil, widely used in Mexico for creating the precious foam on top of the hot chocolate (but also for champurrados and atoles). This luxurious, deep red, hand-turned molinillo is made by the skilled master Filemon from Michoacán, using granadillo hardwood from the south of Mexico. It’s a very special piece that will elevate your kitchen display instantly. 

molinillo is used in a following way: place its carved head in the hot chocolate, and hold its handle between the palms of both hands. By rubbing the palms back and forth as fast as you can, the molinillo’s blades, rings and hollow parts rotate and create foam.
