This kitchen classic comes from a company that has been producing mortars and pestles for over a century. Made of unglazed porcelain that affords a textured surface for crushing seeds and spices, it won’t absorb flavors or odors.
The mortar is heavy and stable to withstand the rigors of pounding and grinding; its generous one Imperial pint (20 fl oz/568ml) capacity lets you mix flavored oils, dressings or marinades right in the bowl.
The pouring spout doubles as a rest for the 10" long beech-handled pestle. An attractive, functional addition to any kitchen, and a great gift.
