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.

    I ordered the medium size mortar and pestle as a birthday gift for my sister and when she opened the box, kept in shipping package, her face lit up with excitement! I was so pleased she liked > loved it. The unglazed porcelain mortar and pestle end were beautifully crafted, as well as the hardwood handle of pestle. Definitely high quality in look and feel, well worth the price. Will definitely be shopping with Reluctant Trading in the future.

    Simply gorgeous mortar and pestle

    My daughter was cooking a dish the other night that required a mortar and pestle and she didn’t have one so I decided to get one for her as a gift. I went to your site and found this beautiful one - so decided to get one for me as well in the larger size. I love the creamy color and the shape - beautifully designed as are your pepper mills, which I adore!

    Substantial, Beautiful, Functional

    This mortar/pestle has it all: style, heft and functionality. We love it.

    Please don't ever go out of business!

    Life without your peppercorns? No thanks.
    Absolutely love everything I've purchased from this company.


    Beautiful design! Gave this as a gift to my daughter. She was thrilled.
