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.

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
