Freshly ground spices are what this porcelain mortar with its non-slip base is used for. The mortar bowl has small notches on the inside which make for a very finely crushed product. The handy pestle is made of peach wood which is especially easy on the mortar surface. A practical pouring lip keeps your kitchen tidy. The lid doubles as a grater for ginger, nutmeg and the like, and a silicone ring makes sure it rests on the mortar safely.
