Product Description

Product Description

Maximize flavor by grinding spices and herbs for your favorite dishes in this larger version of our popular Mortar & Pestle. Unglazed interior and pestle tip create the perfecgt surface for efficiency

Amazon.com

Before food processors, cooks ground up their own spices, herbs, and nuts with a mortar and pestle. In fact, many Italians still prefer to make pesto by mashing up their basil leaves and other ingredients with such a tool. You, too, can enjoy the fabulous aromas and flavors released by a little elbow grease. Made in France of high-fired stoneware, this tall, deep mortar holds 20 ounces, a great size for making guacamole or pesto, or for mashing fresh mint leaves for mojito cocktails. The mortar interior and the tip of the pestle remain unglazed for grinding, while the exterior is glazed with hard enamel that won't absorb flavors and resists staining and chipping. A distinctive curve adds modern zip to the bowl design.

Le Creuset's stoneware mortar bowl is so durable, it's safe to use in the oven, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher. With its pronounced rim for easy gripping, the mortar can double as a serving bowl for whatever you make in it. A great gift, the set is covered by a lifetime limited warranty against defects. --Ann Bieri

While the outside of the mortar is a beautiful shade of green, the inside is rough which makes for perfect grinding. The tip of the pestle is also rough while the top is smooth, so it's comfortable to hold. It's very sturdy and not to mention beautiful. I found the 20 ounce size to be perfect for me as I only cook for two. I would say this size would work for four people max. I'm very happy with my purchase.

I love this mortar & pestle for making fresh home made chunky guacamole and grinding my own black pepper spices from the peppercorns. The handling is smooth, of course it's heavy.

My daughter had this item, along with other Le Creuset items, on her Christmas list. This brand is very well made and very nice and this particular item is no exception. She will love it. It came very well packaged and in perfect shape.
