It is very large - plenty big enough for making a good size curry paste.

It looks nice sitting out on the kitchen counter - which makes it even handier to use.

I was so surprised that the actual product in my kitchen product has blown my expectations through the roof. This thing is HUGE! And very very heavy. ( do not drop onto stone or wood floors and certainly not your feet. ) I paid a little under $30.00 and I thought I was gonna get some tiny little contraption that was barely useful but boy was I wrong. I love it and I'm very pleased with it. I'm a Trinidadian and we use alot of natural ingredients land spices to prepare our foods and most if them require some sort of pounding or grinding inorder to release those natural flavors into the food. My grandmother used one when I was 3 years old and I thought that the mortar and pestle was a thing of the past. I could not believe that I found it on amazon. Great buy but before use I would scrub the inside of the mortar thoroughly with some vinegar or lemon and warm water and then pound some white rice( cooked soft ) using the pestle. This is to ensure the all the natural dirt from the stone is gone. If the rice looks a little grayish rinse the mortar and add fresh rice and try again. Do this until rice appears to be white when you are finished crushing it into a paste.

I love pesto. My boyfriend insists on making it the traditional Italian way, with a mortar and pestle, because Marcella Hazan recommends it that way. I didn't think I could ever make pesto myself, because I don't have enough strength in my arms to grind away with the mortar and pestle my boyfriend had. It was porcelain and small and inconvenient for making pesto in larger quantities for when we had guests over. So I decided to get him a new one, bigger and better.

I searched several mainstream kitchen stores and was unhappy with the selections they had. If the mortars weren't too small, the pestles almost always were. They seemed painful to work with as I worried my boyfriend would bang his fist around while grinding. Then I found this one at Sur La Table. Their price was comparable to the one offered here.

I got the biggest size mortar and pestle. At first, I was hesitant because it didn't come in any packaging and so I couldn't check who the makers were or what material its made of and other such information. It really was just "what you see is what you get". It did have a "Made in Thailand" sticker, but I had no idea if Thailand was famous for its mortars and pestles. I did think that to ship something this heavy all the way from Thailand would be expensive, which I really don't think is reflected in the price. Also, the material (which I now know is granite) seemed to have some imperfections. For example, the handles on the side are just for show and serve no function and they weren't identical. I wondered if this was some kind of "tourist trap" item made in Thailand that was imported.

I finally decided to get it because it was the biggest and sturdiest mortar and pestle I had found. I could also return it if my boyfriend didn't approve of it.

Considering it was coming from a Thailand importer, I was pleasantly surprised that it arrived in only about a week. It was quite heavy, very hard (it is granite after all), smooth and very well made for it's purpose.

The brief note included with it said to place it on folder towel or something to prevent marring your counter tops. I actually went a step further and got a thick rubber mat (just under 1/4" thick, 6" wide roll, at Home Depot or Lowes, don't recall which), which I think was designed as a drawer liner or something. I cut it to fit the bottom of the mortar, and permanently adhered it to the bottom with construction adhesive (so it would survive washing without coming off).

It works perfectly now, grips the counter securely without marring it, and there's no hint of it even trying to come off. If the seller wanted to make this product perfect, I'd suggest adding a similar rubber grip base as I added. Other than that, it is a perfect mortar and pestle.

I got one of these as a gift, and I just love it. The heavy granite is perfect for bashing peppercorns. I don't even have a grinder anymore; when I want fresh pepper for soup or cooking, I put a teaspoon of peppercorns (usually a gourmet green and black mix) into the mortar and in only a few seconds I either have crushed pepper for roasts, or I grind it down for fine pepper for soups. You can control the grind extremely well; from dust-fine to coarse.

Garlic is heavenly, mashed with butter, and if you use allspice, it is so much better in whole form, crushed just before use. Allspice seems to lose its potency in ground form, so I only by whole spice. Same goes for coriander seeds.

This also makes good wet herb pastes (like gremolata with parsley, lemon zest and salt) or nut pastes for stuffing under chicken skin before roasting. It's fast to use, attractive on the kitchen counter and easy to clean. If you like to use fresh spices and herbs in your cooking, this is a must.

I can't tell you how much I am enjoying using it. Why this mortar? Granite is heaviest. This one is smooth and cleans out well without leaving any smell residues. I love garlic paste with little oil and salt that comes out of this mortar. Put it on tomatoes and mamma mia! It is one of the best purchases I ever made. It's been around for so long and it seems only now we (western society) are discovering that food mashed are not the same as when you cut or grind them. You got a have this one!
