Helen’s Asian Kitchen Suribachi Set, a traditional Japanese ceramic mortar with wooden pestle, quickly grinds ingredients into a fine paste or powder for preparing authentic Asian dressings, sauces, and pastes. Introduced from Southern China in the 11th century, this beautiful kitchen essential, the Japanese mortar (suribachi) and wooden pestle (surikogi) became an important tool in the Japanese kitchen. Its literal translation, grinding bowl, describes its results perfectly. The unglazed interior with sharp ridges speeds up the grinding process and prevents ingredients from slipping and sliding for more efficient results with minimal effort. Perfect for crushing sesame seeds and all types of nuts, garlic, herbs, and seasonings. Made from natural ceramic earthenware with a rich brown glazed exterior, Helen Chen’s Suribachi mortar set is sturdy and durable. The traditional wooden pestle is specially designed to prevent unnecessary wear to the mortar’s interior ridges. Easy to use. Simply set the suribachi on a damp towel or rubber mat to steady it on the work surface. Place ingredients inside and use the wooden pestle to rotate contents against the sharp, raised ridges inside the suribachi. Use a soft-bristle brush to dislodge ground ingredients. Hand wash in hot water, no soap. Brought to you by HIC Harold Import Co. Not affiliated with Joyce Chen Products.
A Japanese version of the mortar and pestle, this suribachi set from Helen's Asian Kitchen is ideally suited to grinding and crushing herbs, seeds, and spices for deliciously fresh food. Crafted from durable earthenware with a rich brown outer glaze, the suribachi bowl features an unglazed, ribbed interior. This design holds ingredients at a slope for efficient, visible grinding. The coordinating wooden pestle, or surikogi, works well with the ceramic materials, so that the ingredients, not the bowl, take the beating. Comfortable in the hand, the pestle is shaped to maximize the contours of the suribachi bowl for uniform and quick results. All pieces should be washed by hand to preserve their integrity. --Emily Bedard
