HIC's Mortar and Pestle Set is the perfect set of tools to grind items into a fine paste or powder. The mortar bowls and pestles work together to grind and break down ingredients quickly to help speed up food preparation with minimum effort. Always have the right size for the task with this set of 3 mortars and their coordinating pestles. Quickly grind fresh ingredients, like cloves of garlic, herbs and spices, peppercorns or cinnamon, nuts, grains, and seeds, into a fine paste or powder. Make aromatic dry rubs, curry pastes, pestos, nut butters, spreads, and so much more. Even use it as a pill crusher to pulverize harder-to-swallow pills! Essential tools for those practicing homeopathy, the art of healing through natural remedies, HIC's Mortar and Pestle Set offers effortless preparation of herbal and homeopathic remedies. So easy to use. Simply place an item into the mortar bowl. Hold the pestle by the handle and, using a firm pressure, make a circular stirring-like motion to grind your item into a paste or powder. Harder items, like peppercorns, may need the surface cracked before they can be ground. Firmly, but gently, tap the item with the pestle, then grind into the desired consistency. Pestle and mortar are both made from fine-quality porcelain to complement kitchen countertops and any home decor. Dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. Mortar and Pestle Set includes 3 mortars (2.75-inch, 3.5-inch and 5-inch) and coordinating pestles.
Top Customer Reviews
This set is comprised of three mortars and three pestles. The largest mortar is 4.75-in outer diameter (OD), 4.25-in inner diameter (ID), about 2-in tall; the middle mortar is 3.5-in OD, 3-in ID, 2-in tall; the smallest one is 2.5-in OD, 2-in ID, 1.5-in tall. Each mortar is thick and heavy (seems to be well built) -- more importantly, each mortar has un-glazed porcelain on the inside (which is very important for grinding spices, as the unglazed porcelain is rough and helps to "grab" the item to be ground).
The pestles are well sized for their respective mortars and are solid in construction (i.e., not hollow). Like the mortars, they are left un-glazed on the grinding surfaces.
Overall, I am happy with this set and would recommend it. First of all, the price: I paid $10.99 for the set - not bad considering a single mortar/pestle can cost much more. Secondly, the construction - these mortars/pestles are heavy for their size, solid in construction, and well finished. Thirdly, this set is porcelain, and is un-glazed on the grinding surfaces, which is superior to wood, metal, or even marble.
This set was less expensive than the single mortar and pestle I was able to find (which was only one - they're very hard to find)and of much better functional quality (I believe someone else mentioned the non-glazed interior, which keeps stuff from sliding around; that is, easier to pulverize with the pestle).
I'm very satisfied with this product and highly recommend it.
One thing that's not great for me is that I have large hands and the length of the pestles is such that I wind up rubbing my fingers along the edge of the mortar bowl as I grind. This is just uncomfortable, but the only thing bad that I've come across. The weight is great, and it has good solid contact.
