Additionally, the granite will season itself over time and release more flavor into your ingredients.
You no longer need to worry if your food processor is crushing ingredients to the right consistency. With this mortar and pestle, you can control how fine or coarse your ingredients are ground to create your timeless recipes again and again, and, due to its larger size, you can be sure your ingredients will not spill out of the mortar.

We love this product to perfectly crush all our whole spices, perfect weight not too heavy. Also easy to clean. We use it to crush cardamon, garlic, chilies, anise, peanuts for Asian cooking. 5 stars

This is a very nicely made mortar and pestle. The bowl is unpolished in order to add friction when you grind. The top rim and pestle are nicely finished and polished and the pestle feels good in your hand. It is also very strong and does not chip and flake. Buy this one with confidence.

The weight of this unit is excellent, not so heavy that it becomes difficult to move, but heavy enough that it won't move during use. The texture of the bowl and pestle allow the user to gain a real bite on the foods being crushed.

This is a really solid tool. It's not a designer piece that exists for show. The outside is mostly unfinished and rough, but that's irrelevant. It is a heavy granite Mortar and Pestle designed to get the work done. The weight is a great thing because it does keep the tool in place while working it. I went through a thorough seasoning procedure (http://eatbufordhighway.com/cooking/the-mortar-pestle-seasoning/) and it's been good to go ever since. I don't think you can do better for 3 times the price.

Absolutely love my mortar & pestle set! Makes grinding the herbs down much faster and easier! Anyone would love this! Nice and big and sturdy and durable!

This mortar and pestle set is so fun! It's good quality and would probably break you before you could break it. It's great for grinding spices, coffee, or even for making fresh guacamole.

Word to the wise: don't drop the pestle on your fingers. The texture inside and on the end is great - it grips spices and such well and keeps them from spitting out like on porcelain - but the shaft is smooth, and can get a little slippery if it's wet or oily. Still a great tool at a good price.

This large and sturdy mortar will do well at crushing spices such as black pepper, cardamom, coriander, cumin, etc. The stone is hard, dense, gives off very little stone dust once seasoned, and has good friction for grinding hard spices down. I seasoned mine by crushing rice and a little vinegar together for about 15 minutes into a fine paste and then discarding the paste.

This 8" granite mortar and pestle set is perfect for grinding spices to order. You simply fill the bowl with the ingredients and use the stick to crush them.

I purchased this for my home so I can grind spices the old fashioned way. I will definitely be back to buy one as a gift for a friend.

Great for several uses and good to have around. Never used to use one until now and I use it all the time. Good quality at a great price.

a terrific little piece of equipment. we don't use it that often but it works very well when we do. a very good price besides.
Joyce B. from breezy point international Posted on 08/30/2015
Heavy duty quality! This mortar & pestle has a solid base and deep bowl for ease of use. I've had other grocery store bought granite mortar & pestles and nothing compares to the 8" mortar and pestle. As with previous orders Webstaraunt knows how to securely pack their products for shipping.
Anthony D. Posted on 06/30/2015
Love my mortar and pestle from Webstaurant! Best price I could find, great quality, durable. large enough for all my needs and nice and sturdy!
Stacey S. from Cornerstone Church Posted on 05/18/2015
Super nice mortar and pestle. Love the nice long handle, and rough finish on the granite. Has to be seasoned, but once it is, does a great job of allowing you to dial in the perfect grind on things.
Michael P. from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on 04/21/2015
Great for grinding spices/seeds, especially when an electric grinder might be overkill. Heavy and solid as a rock (because it is one). Also great for smashing garlic and making pastes.
Gordon L. Posted on 04/18/2015
I'm really happy with this mortar and pestle set. It is very heavy, which helps keep it in place. Plus it's much larger than my old one. I also actually like the rustic way it looks. This was also the cheapest price I found anywhere. If you need a mortar and pestle, I think you will be happy with this.
Lisa G. Posted on 03/28/2015
I love using this over the spice grinder because it's easier to clean, and easier to gauge how fine you want your spices to be. I love having one of these in the kitchen. Whatever you do though, don't drop it!
James B. Posted on 12/07/2014
This is a nice mortar and pestle set that is larger than most you find elsewhere. It is easy to clean and the pestle is comfortable to use. This is a good investment if you are looking for a slightly larger set than those you normally find in retail stores or elsewhere online.
Thomas M. Posted on 12/02/2014
i used this item for to grind up mustard seed to make my home made mustard. or you can used this item for any thing used .
Jonathan D. from Zackey joe's Posted on 09/23/2014
the reason I purchased an 8 inches one is that the price is not bad and the shipping was not bad either, together it is affordable and it grinds fast with salt and spices at the same time. it does not take up much room to store it and it is a good investment for someone who likes to cook with various spices. Won't be sorry to buy one to use. the big size makes everything stays in the bowl.
Yvonne O. Posted on 08/22/2014
An absolute great buy for quality and price. These get the job done and are very durable as well. I highly recommend these and I will buy more when I need them. It is very heavy duty and just plain HEAVY but great.
Michael H. Posted on 03/10/2014
This mortar and pestle set is massive, weighty, and actually quite attractive. Be sure to season and clean using a bit of dry rice before using.
James W. Posted on 12/25/2013
This is a nice tool for grinding or crushing freshly toasted nuts and seed before adding them to a dish! It is easier to clean than a spice grinder!!!!
Eric K. Posted on 10/08/2013
The price and quality are amazing. The set arrived well packaged, and is extremely heavy, always a desirable thing with mortars and pestles. We had trouble finding a decent pestle. It is easy to find heavy mortars, but the pestles were always lightweight. Not so with this one. The pestle is a good weight as well.
Marco D. Posted on 08/19/2013
I love this mortar and pestle. It is great for spices. I like the depth of it. I am anxious to try using it for making guacamole. You won't find a better price.
Susan L. Posted on 08/11/2013
This mortar and pestle is so heavy that you do not have to worry about the bowl slipping on the counter top. There isn't anything the set can't handle.
W. P. Posted on 06/02/2013
This granite mortar and pestle set is perfect for crushing any whole spices down. We crush cinnamon, gloves, and pepper usually. It works really great.
Laura B. Posted on 01/28/2013
Any kitchen needs to have one of these! If you want a great way to get the most flavor out of your spices, than this is a must buy.
Eric S. Posted on 01/08/2013
These are so great to have! Especially for restaurants that mill or roll their own grains. Try making flour or masa in one of these! You'll never go back!
Tom M. Posted on 03/27/2012
I love this mortar and pestle. I never have to worry about slippage or comfortability using the pestle. It is very convenient and heavy! I never have to worry about the mortar moving. So easy to clean once you know how. For all oily or sticky foods such as bananas or walnuts, use a mild dish washing liquid. Any questions? The wesbstaurantstore.com team are always happy to help. I got my parcel so quick! I was very happy with the packaging as my item was untouched by scratches or chips. As a first time buyer, I would definately highly recommend this product. When you first receive it, it may feel grainy. All it needs is a good washing and it is ready to go. I will definately be shopping with them again.
