This mortar & pestle is the perfect size for grinding spices. I love the ceramic material and the design. It's much better than the traditional Mexican mortar & pestles made of granite - those are always too big and heavy.
I oiled the pestle handle with butcher-block oil and it looks great - it also protects the wood from cracking and absorbing liquids and stains.
Bought the large mortar and pestle and like the feel of it crunching my cardamon pods and the various black peppers that I've purchased. Much easier than buying lots of pepper mills and I feel that I mash up what I need and the rest of the peppercorns keep fresh. Am I correct in thinking that? So, very pleased with my purchase.
Classy modern look that displays nicely and works amazingly.
I’ve held out for years buying a good Mortar and Pestle because every one I came across felt too lean and narrow. I need more wiggle room and wanted more of a wider bowl shape. When I saw this one, it was so beautiful, I thought it would be worth taking the risk even though I couldn’t see it in person. I’m a very tactile person, and kind of picky, but I’m so glad I did take the risk. I love it. I bought the medium and it is absolutely perfect. It’s the exact shape and size I’ve been picturing in my mind’s eye as the perfect M&P for years. So glad I found it. I’ll definitely be looking into more of the products carried by this company as shipping and packaging were perfect, and they obviously have great taste and superior quality products. Thank you!
