My first impression when I looked into the box, “Wow, this is beautiful”. My opinions never went down from there. I have never owned a mortar and pestle. I have always wanted one but it’s one of those things I have just never actually went and purchased. I am a mother of four and a “cheap goat”. I would spend every last penny on my children before spending a dime on myself. That’s how I have always been but it’s alright. I am not doing without. 🙂
OK, so this beautiful marble mortar and pestle has a smooth, polished exterior finish that is gorgeous. This looks great just sitting on the counter waiting for it’s next job. The end of the pestle, as well as the inside of the mortar have a rough finish which makes grinding spices a breeze.
I grow a lot of my own food in my garden every year, including herbs and spices. I am excited to try this out next season on some dried basil, rosemary and thyme. This will also work great to grind up some chocolate mint leaves to add to an infuser for tea. I hate using garlic presses and have broken I don’t know how many in attempt to crush garlic….this will be a whole new world of garlic crushing for me 🙂
Working at a nursing home I know many residents that need their medicines crushed up and this would be perfect for that application as well.
My young boys enjoyed helping me review this and I took a video of the youngest one grinding up some whole allspice for me. Wow, my kitchen smells like delicious molasses!! My older son was using the pestle as a microphone. It’s multifunctional 😛
The three of us give this 5 thumbs up each with equals out to 5 out of 5 stars! I am glad I received this item to review and glad my little helpers joined me in it’s review.
