Granite Pestle & Mortar


The granite pestle & mortar is indispensable for grinding whole spices in the kitchen. Also use for peppers and salts, to crush garlic, nuts and seeds. It’s a great size for making your own curry pastes, homemade pesto and salad dressings.

Using a pestle & mortar to crush ingredients releases the full range of aromatic essential oils that your ingredients have to offer. This is particularly noticeable with ingredients like ginger and garlic, lemongrass and leafy herbs. They look and feel quite dry, and tend to remain so if you only use a knife to prepare them. But crush them in a pestle & mortar and they’ll soften as their essential oils are released, allowing you to combine them into pastes for curries and marinades with exceptional depth and intensity of flavour.

This pestle & mortar is carved from granite, a durable natural stone that also looks great in your kitchen. The weighty pestle crushes all ingredients with ease.

Hand wash only.
