I am thrilled with my motor and pestle and delighted to have had no problems sorting out an order/delivery problem that was all my own fault. The company helped me sort out my mistake with no friction and I am a happy customer!
Every kitchen needs one...no, all three sizes.
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.
