To release the most flavor from certain herbs and spices you need the right tools. This handsome Mortar and Pestle is perfect for grinding herbs, spices and nuts into pastes or powders. The heavy, smooth marble makes for a sturdy base and provides the right amount of weight for best results. Use it again and again for pestos, homemade curry powder and spice rubs – it's made to last a lifetime.
  • 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 bought it for the looks...but now use it all the time. Really refreshes older spices and saves me money! I can also mix herbs together for a rub or whatever.
    Marble is heavy and easy to use.

  • 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.

    I recommend this product.
