Japanese Mortar and Pestle
For the daily grind.
A tool essential to grinding spices, mashing herbs, and making pastes deserves a spot on your countertop—and if it’s going to live on your counter, we think it should look good. 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.
