A metate (or mealing stone) is a type or variety of Quern-stone#Saddle_quern, quern, a ground stone tool used for processing grain and seeds. In traditional Mesoamerican cultures, metates are typically used by women who would grind nixtamalization, lime-treated maize and other organic materials during food preparation (e.g., making tortillas).
