Milton Modern Mortar & Pestle

Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Online Specialty Food Store"

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.

    Mortar & Pestle

    Excellent Item. Prompt Service.

    Works like a charm!

    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!

    a dream come true

    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!
