Marble & Metal Mortar & Pestle
Between a rock and a hard pestle.
The clearest path to guacamole? A high-quality, sturdy mortar and pestle. The hefty marble keeps this mortar from slipping around while you make your guac or grind your spices. The pestle has a ridged tip, which makes grinding and crushing a breeze. Finish things off with a shining copper or brass base, and this is as much a piece of art as it is a piece of essential kitchen equipment.
