Today, Ironwood Gourmet offers one of THE highest quality acacia wood products in the industry and is the choice of the most notable gourmet retailers throughout the world.

Acacia Wood
Acacia is a hardwood that is grown on all continents. This pod bearing tree is known for its rich, dark colors, that range from gold to chocolate brown, as well as its beautiful, contrasting patterns. The wood is farmed throughout South East Asia for use in the furniture and housewares industries. One of the special characteristics of Acacia wood is an unusual property known as 'chatoyancy' — it appears to change color and luster in different lighting conditions as if to shimmer. The wood can change from a light tan to a dark brown, sometimes appearing similar to Walnut and sometimes more like Teak.

**Use & Care**
Wash Ironwood Gourmet products in warm, soapy water and thoroughly rinse with clean water. Do not soak. To dry, prop up off of counter to allow all surfaces to air dry evenly. Wood products should never be washed in the dishwasher.

After drying, rejuvenate and protect the wood by rubbing it down with Ironwood Butcher Block Oil. Apply the oil liberally and allow it to soak in thoroughly before use. Regular application of our Butcher Block Oil will prevent cracking and preserve the rich natural colors of the wood.

Regarding Ironwood Acacia Wooden Mortar & Pestle, Here is why this particular mortar & pestle are worth your consideration: If you are going to use this wooden device in the kitchen, (as opposed to just putting it on display), it is good for grinding. I have visited about 4 major well known stores, and checked out about 10 different wooden motars (on line as well), and none of the wooden mortars had the features for which mortars are really used. This mortar did have the important features: (1) the pestle tip is nice and wide, about 2.5 inch diameter, angled. This makes it practical to grind things. (2) The mortar has a wide opening, 4 inches diameter, yet it is not too deep. The depth is about 1.5 to 1.75 inches, and the depression or inner surface is round. So if you want to crush, say seeds, then you have practical access to do so. (3) the top end of the pestle is comfortable to handle firmly, which is important if you want to really crush things in there; the handle is about 4 inches on length. 80% of the wooden mortars that I have seen were either too small, the pestle was too thin, or the mortar was so deep that it would not be practical to use for small crushing jobs. Believe me, if you want to crush more, you will probably just want to buy a mortar with a 10 or 16 inch diameter, and you'll need major muscle to actually crush something. In such case, I would just use a food processor. One more point that people do not seem to get: although wood is not the perfect material for grinding (because you need to be carefull to crush mostly dry ingredients, and because the wooden surface is rather smooth) -- wood could possibly be the most inert material to use if you care about health.Read more ›

I use it for everything that needs pulverizing!!! The mating geometry of the pestle and well are really well designed. They make it really easy to take on the task of, well, smashing up stuff.

I oil it every time I use, once it's dry of course, with olive oil and it keeps it nice.

According to my tape measure, and my aging, yet recently calibrated, eye balls, the outside diameter is about 5-7/8" the inside top edge of the well is close to 4" and is near to 2" deep at the center of the well. The total height is about 2-3/4"

One thing I've noticed, when researching items on Amazon, is that in the "Product Details" area, the "product dimensions" and "weight" are sometimes misleading as they often refer to the outside dimensions and the weight of the packaging for the item. It's best to find the product dimensions down in the "Product Description" area, but in this case, no go. The lights were on, but no dimensions were home. So you roll the dice and figure it might be a bit smaller than stated in the "Product Details" area . Or you look for one that has more precise dimensional information and call it a day. There's no point in getting all bent out of shape over it my dear.

In the final analyses, I'm glad I got this smashing tool, if you get it, you'll probably be glad too!!!!

This is a wonderful and useful item. Very attractive sitting on countertops. I oiled it with mineral oil to protect the wood and help to deter absorption of different ingredients. It's so easy to use and is much lighter in weight than the traditional stone mortars and pestles. It was also a great buy for the money.

I've only used this a few times, but it looks good and works well for crushing spices and flower petals. I would be cautious about using it to crush things that might stain it, but beyond that I think it's great.

It's beautiful and does what I want it to do. That's all I ask, just doing what it's supposed to do. Got myself some nice food grade oil (as recommended somewhere) and gave it a rubbing with it to bring up the color and seal it a bit. Worked great when I was crushing tea for some chai I was making. Handles nicely.

Received my beautiful mortar and pestle and could not have been happier. The wood is gorgeous! I hate to use it as I do not want to spoil its appearance in any way. I do not like a cluttered countertop, but there is no way that I am putting this piece in a cupboard, out of sight.

I bought this for my son to demonstrate how to be a Miller at his 2nd Grade class Colonial Marketplace. It worked well for that purpose. After one washing, it has dried out, so I'll need to get some mineral oil to keep it moist. I am keeping it to have on hand in the kitchen because it is good quality and looks nice.

We use this mainly to make baby food. We love the beautiful wood, which we rub down with coconut oil every now and then for maintenance. It works well for mushing avocado, banana, and other produce that's baby-food bound :)
