Mortar and pestle sets are hand thrown on the wheel with a generous amount of clay for a thick, durable, and functional piece. The unglazed surfaces on the mortar and pestle work really well to efficiently grind spices, herbs, and garlic. The pestle is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.
This mortar and pestle is high-fired stoneware and is super durable. It is dishwasher safe and food safe. The unglazed surfaces will continue to smooth out as it is being used. The clay is vitrified so it should resist holding on to flavors and aromas, but if it does, grind some white rice or salt in the mortar and it should remove any remaining flavors.
The mortar is 6 inches wide and 2 inches tall. The pestle is about 3 inches tall.
