Natural Stone Mortar & Pestle
+ $ shipping surcharge
Better than a blender.
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.
