Milton Modern Mortar & Pestle

Milton Modern Mortar & Pestle

It was love at first sight for us with the Milton Modern Mortar & Pestles. Fortunately, we were just as excited when we discovered that they functioned as beautifully as they looked.

Designed by a British company, the Milton mortar and pestles are crafted of beautiful, tough and heavy unglazed porcelain ceramic. The pestles are made of beechwood and ceramic. The weight of the pestle makes grinding easy and natural.

The unglazed porcelain surface provides resistance. Includes pour spout for sauces and liquids. The Miltons are even dishwasher safe and are easy to clean.

    Great service and great product

    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!

    wonderful product!

    Great mortar and pestle

    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.
