The mortar and pestle is an ancient tool that’s been around for millennia, with the earliest ones found dating to 35,000 BC. It’s been used for a myriad of purposes from alchemy and cooking to pharmacology and masonry, and is a utensil that no modern kitchen should be without. Handy and convenient to use, they also add a touch of dramatic flair to any kitchen decor. They’re great for cracking spices and peppercorns, grinding aromatic roots, crushing tender herbs for pesto and pastes and even for crushing medications for pets and humans alike.
If you’re using an electric spice grinder or food processor, you may be missing out on the finer and more subtle flavors that emerge in the hand-grinding process. And often, a well-constructed mortar and pestle will outperform its electric counterparts in terms of ease of use, clean up and convenience as well.
Our Brushed Stainless Steel Mortar and Pestle Set are ideal for herbs and spices grinding before they are added to a recipe. They are handy for everything from cracking nuts, crushing tender herbs to making pesto and guacamole, absolutely useful in food preparing or in the kitchen.
