    The reason for the 1 star review is that it does not have a smooth bottom. It scratched up our counter tops. It was extremely disappointing.

    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.

    This is the best size mortar and pestle for me. It's a good balance between counter space and functionality. I use it mostly for grinding dry spices but it also works great for small amounts of rice for thickening and making curry pastes. Pretty much anything you wouldn't want to dirty your food processor for. I would recommend.

    Great value! If you use a mortar and pestle you want to get the largest one possible, not only for ease of crushing/grinding (larger means more weight in the pestle which will do the work rather than your muscles) but also for ease of containing the ingredients. It is easier to crush a small amount in a large mortar than a large amount in a small one. So far I have used this for herbs and spices and garlic - but I need to remember to use it more. Next step, Caesar dressing!

    This is a really nice large mortar for high volume performance! Quality of this product is just outstanding! It is very heavy which is important for this kind of product! I would recommend this product!

    from Tom Posted on

    Excellent mortar and pestle for the price. Be aware that it is quite heavy. It looks great, and it appears the granite is good quality so far.

    Nice heavy mortar and pestle that I highly recommend, but I was disappointed that it arrived with a substantial chunk missing from the top outside rim. It was not caused by shipping because there were no loose pieces in the box. I know it won't affect performance, so it's not worth the expense and hassle of returning it. But it annoys me that I received a flawed product.

    This is a great mortar and pestle set. Solid and heavy. We use it for grinding up our house rub for pulled pork. Should last forever.

    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!

    from Tightline Connection Posted on

    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.
