Create your own spice blends, make homemade Thai curry paste, or crack peppercorns before adding them to soup with the SCI/Scandicrafts, Inc. 4-in. Marble Mortar and Pestle. This handy set is made of sturdy natural marble for long-lasting strength and impressive stability, and the mortar has a deep bowl that prevents ingredients from popping out as you crush. The hard pestle fits comfortably in the hand and expertly crushes herbs grown in your home garden to release their aroma and flavor. It's also great for grinding pine nuts for your classic basil pesto, crushing sea salt into a fine powder for freshly popped popcorn or turning almonds into almond butter. The bowl is also sized just right for making tasty steak rubs before a session on the grill. The footed base keeps the mortar securely in place when you're exerting grinding pressure, and the foot provides a place to grab the mortar when you want to hold it in one hand while crushing cardamom and lavender together to make a creative dessert or trying out a new recipe for pumpkin seed pesto. The attractive set can be left out on display when not in use, and it is compact enough to effectively conserve space. Features:
  • Durable marble construction withstands heavy use
  • Compact mortar and pestle set lets you quickly crush or grind herbsAttractive exterior looks great on your kitchen counterConvenient foot keeps mortar stable during use.
  • Cleaning & Care: Handwash and dry thoroughly
  • Dimensions: 4 x 4-in.; Pestle, 5-in.
  • Material: Marble
  • Origin: Taiwan
  • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS

  • Sure, you know that whole spices taste better, cost less and have a much longer shelf life than pre-ground, but what do you do when the recipe calls for only a teaspoon of this and a half-teaspoon of that? You use a beautiful mortar and pestle like this one of course! Don't be fooled by the many look-alikes out there. This set is excellently proportioned and finished and well worth the extra two or three dollars. If, after a lot of use, the grinding surfaces lose their "bite" roughen them with some tough 80 to 120 grit silicon carbide wet/dry sandpaper. (Hand wash them afterward.) This makes an excellent gift for any serious cook.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great kitchen basic or gift

    Blend your own spice mixes (why pay a fortune for spice blends?), make rubs for ribs and chicken, make small batches of salsa, mash garlic, onions, etc. for recipes.

    I sent this to my sister-in-law who is just getting in to growing and drying her own herbs and she loved it! Marble is nice and heavy for its size and does not absorb stains or odors.

    Once you are hooked on the mortar and pestle, come back and order a larger one for bigger batches. You'll love this (and will get out some agression too!)

    I recommend this product.

  • Good First Experience

    This is the first time I am using a mortar and pestle. I bought it to grind down whole allspice when I am seasoning meat and fish. I am very pleased with the results so far. I have not used it for anything else, yet. The mortar and pestle seem to have the tendency to retain the color of the allspice if it is not washed immediately after grinding, so I expect it to be discolored years from now. It is very sturdy though, so I DO expect to get many years use out of it.

    I recommend this product.

It looks great on my counter (which never hurts), and I look forward to many years of use. For anyone thinking about ordering, it is a perfect size and excellent quality. Thanks for a great product!

  • My First Mortar and Pestle

    I love this product. For solid marble it was a great price. I tried it on grinding whole spices for Masala Spice. With whole cardamons and star anise as part of the ingredients, I was surprised it only took me about 20 minutes to grind to a nice powder.

    I recommend this product.

  • From a round rock and bowl to mortar & pestle

    People might be laughing, but it worked pretty good!
    I live in Alaska and at times things are hard to find around here or it's way expensive. I have used this mortar and pestle several times since I have purchased it, and it has been a real treat to use!

  • Beautiful

    It's just beautiful! The kind of item you would like to display in your kitchen counter. Inside it has little ridges so that it makes the job at hand easier. It has a good welght. The pestle is shiny but the end is unfinished which helps the grinding process. Together they grind any ingredient faster. I have noticed that it hasn't acquired any smell or odors from any of the foods I've put in there which is great because I can use it for all foods without the fear of having and savory flavors crossing over to the sweet ones. It came in a small box with the pestle on top. It's very easy to clean. I would recommend this to anyone especially if they are short on space.

    I recommend this product.

  • A Wonderful Mortar and Pestle

    I've had a similar mortar and pestle for years that I love. It's especially great for grinding up small dried chili peppers like birdseye chilis. My brother was over one day, and we were cooking together. (Cooking is a passion with everyone in my family.) He was grinding up herbs and started quizzing me about where I got my mortar and pestle. He's often admired it for its quality and perfect size, but this time told me that he had been looking for one with no luck. I decided to see if I could find it online for him when I saw this one. It's nearly identical to mine and at close to the same price I paid years ago. I think he'll be pleased to see it on Christmas morning.

    I recommend this product.
