Japanese Mortar and Pestle
For the daily grind.

This ceramic Japanese mortar and wooden pestle, available in a large and small size, with a glazed exterior and a grooved interior, makes the cut.The mortar’s finely ridged interior makes the job an easier one, and the wooden pestle is gentle against the mortar’s bowl.
