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.Read more ›
The brief note included with it said to place it on a folded 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 just finished pounding a handful of dried Japones chilies into flakes. I've had these chilies for about 6 months. I toasted them beforehand. Yet after all that, pounding in the mortar still produced an oil sheen in the bottom. When everyone says that a food processor cant even compete, this is what they are talking about. You cannot produce this oil by a fast chopping method. You must bruise and pulverize the chili/herb. These oils provide a more powerful flavor that can't be gotten with modern means in a home kitchen. Besides, I just sat in my recliner with the mortar in my lap and pounded away while watching a Family Guy rerun. Nothing lost, something gained. The sides of the unit end up vertical but you can still have stuff escape although it doesn't lose much. I pulled a few seeds off the chair and that was it after 20 minutes of pounding.
