Carved from white marble or black granite, this mortar and pestle is a useful investment and statement piece for any gourmand. With a minimalist design, it’s decorative enough to sit out on your kitchen counter, but durable enough to grind spices, mash garlic, whip up guacamole, pesto, or even nut butter by hand. It’ll last for generations, and it’s a useful tool that also encourages hands-on kitchen technique.

Care & Notes
To use, push into spices and twist to crush, or move pestle in a circular motion to grind the spices.
To clean, wash with warm water and soap. To remove staining from spices such as tumeric and saffron, use steel wool or an abrasive sponge, such as a Scotch-Brite sponge.
