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.

  • Just right...

    This morter is not too big and not too small. I tried the Le Creuset one bu that was too wobbly. This was very stable, and the interior shape is perfectly formed. Good price, too. Only complaint is that's it's pretty heavy...guess that's expected of marble.

  • Well worth the price!

    I actually bought this as a Christmas gift for my 12 year old son. In the past year or so he has shown interest in cooking and experimenting with different herbs and spices. (To my suprise). I just can't keep him out of the kitchen! I made sure he opened this gift last and it was the hit of the day, even better than all the video game stuff. Santa brought him an herb garden so he's ready to roll! Really nice product. Thanks

    I recommend this product.

  • I am just starting to learn the uses for the mortar and pestle. I am sure more ideas will occur as I continue to use it. It plan to buy more whole spices now that I have this set. It appears to be very solid and well made.

  • The color is deceiving but product is great!

    I thought the product would be completely white. I bought it for my mom for Mother's Day to match her dishes. The product is actually gray. But, it is solid marble and does the trick. She loved it!

    I recommend this product.

  • GREAT PRODUCT/OVERPRICED

    I love the product but it was a bit on the pricey side. The color is the key; white marble mortar and pestle are much pricier than the green marble mortar and pestle. The product is great for mixing herbs from my herb garden. I am pleased with the article. I just had to have the white color.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great Bargain

    I absolutely love this Mortar and Pestle. Its very heavy so it doesn't slide around my counters when I'm grinding spices. The pestle fit perfectly in my hand and it doesn't take nearly as long to grind the spices as I thought it would.

    I'm very pleased.

    I recommend this product.
