In all respects, the mortar & pestle is enjoyable, from the form and function to the quality of the materials. The medium size is a perfect for the finishing touches of pesto to pounding everyday spices. Cleans up easy, too. I’m tempted to get the other sizes but that is mostly because it is such an awesome piece!
I have always wanted a mortar and pestle, and finally ordered this one in the medium size. It's a dream come true. Beautiful to look at and work with. Made sublime pesto last night. The heft and feel are perfect. Ground RTE cumin as well. I love using it and plan to cherish it for a long, long time. Thank you RTE!
