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.

  • You could pay a lot more and get one that was polished up a tiny bit better, but it's still very nice. It's solid and heavy, with a narrow deep bowl.

  • Big value on small mortar and pestle

    I ordred this for a friend and decided to get one for myself while I was at it. I have used it several times since. On thanksgiving I had a stuffiing recipe that called for dried herbs, instead, I ground fresh herbs with the mortar and pstle. The results were fantactic. Everyone went on and on about the suttifing.

    I bought the mortar not for cooking purposes but to grind up pills finely enough so that we could fool our aging sick cat and get the needed medication down her. Pills were an anathma. It worked perfectly and eventually, it will become me garlic crusher. For the time being, it is literally a life saver.

    I recommend this product.

  • I really like this product, and it's a solid piece of equipment. I find it to be fun to use for small jobs. I would have given a 5 star rating but, I think the handle is about 2 inches too small. Your fingers sometimes feel like they are getting in the way if you are not careful. I would consider this a good buy and a useful kitchen gadget...

  • This product is great. The bowl has a small mouth, but I knew that when I ordered it. I use it for grining herbs and spices together for rubs. I also grind garlic with sea salt as well, it works perfectly! I need to get a larger one for advocado dips, etc. I would buy this again or give as gifts.

  • It doesn't get more basic than a mortar and pestle. This one is heavy and tough and grinds through peppercorns and cinnamon sticks with ease. A wise purchase indeed.

  • In the past, I have purchased at least two very unsatisfactory products that were impossible to use because they were too smooth inside. This one is absolutely PERFECT: a good weight and circumference. The pestle has a roughness that allows it to pulverize any seeds without slipping off and flipping them out of the bowl. It was a very good decision to purchase this one from Cooking.com.

    I recommend this product.

  • The size of this mortar is just perfect for small quantities of spices. I think anything smaller would be more of a toy than a useful kitchen tool. The pestle could have been made an inch longer for a better fin in my hand, but it works fine just the same.

    I recommend this product.
