This oversized, solid marble mortar and pestle is a necessity for any home cook serious about herbs and spices. Can also be used for grains, teas, seeds and more. The durable marble will not add off flavors to whatever you’re grinding, and because both the mortar and the pestle are made of marble, you’ll have no effort grinding even the toughest item. The interior of the mortar and the end of the pestle are textured for more efficiency. By Fox Run.
