Mortars and pestles have been the go-to grinding and crushing tool for centuries. Use the Le Creuset 20-oz. Stoneware Mortar and Pestle and learn why it is still an invaluable accessory for your modern kitchen. This two-piece set features a mortar that has an enamel exterior coating and unglazed interior that offers just the right amount of friction and abrasion, and a pestle with an unglazed tip to help you grind and crush with ease. Mortars and pestles have a clear advantage over mini choppers and food processors. Instead of simply cutting the herbs, nuts or spices with a blade, a mortar and pestle truly grinds them, which allows them to release their full flavors, aromas and oils. Use it on fresh herbs such as basil or lemongrass and you'll truly see, smell and taste the difference.

Best Used For:

Get out your mortar and pestle to make delicious rubs for your ribs, chicken or pork, a spicy Thai curry paste or harissa, homemade pesto or your own signature spice blend. Crack peppercorns for an elegant steak au poivre, grind flax seeds for a morning yogurt parfait, or whip up some homemade almond, cashew or peanut butter. Your mortar and pestle will also serve you well at your next cocktail party as you can use it to crush limes for authentic caipirinha or gently crush mint leaves to make refreshing mojitos.


  • Made from very dense stoneware that won't absorb moisture
  • Enamel coating on the exterior resists stains and scratches
  • Semi-nonstick interior releases foods easily
  • 20-fluid-ounce capacity

  • Dishwasher safe
  • Five-year warranty
  • Cleaning & Care: Dishwasher Safe

  • The first thing I made with this was pesto and I slightly stained the inside. However, I did not wash out the mortar prior to use as was instructed, so perhaps that is why.

    I recommend this product.

  • Finally!

    I had been searching for a high-quality motar and pestle for some time when I came across this set from This set is so lovely, I hate to put in the cabinet! I am easily able to grind herbs for my favorite dishes - it's not to large or too small-just right. Of course, being Le Crueset, the color is beautiful - I ordered the blue. Thanks for stocking such a valuable tool for my kitchen!

    I recommend this product.
