Pestle and Mortar
No modern kitchen is complete without this ancient tool - the mortar and pestle. Comprising two simple tools, 1) the mortar - a sturdy and durable bowl and 2) the pestle - a blunt heavy club, designed for preparing all manner of ingredients. From crushing herbs, grinding spices, making pesto as well as any other favourite rubs and marinades you require.
The best mortar and pestle sets are made from hardy materials. Presenting both a smooth exterior finish but keeping a rougher interior surface which helps with the breakdown, pounding and grinding of different ingredients. Popular examples of this are with a granite mortar and pestle which has a superior performance or a marble mortar and pestle, which is just as hard wearing but provides a more hygienic surface.
