  • Made from superior black granite for style and durability, this hard-wearing pestle &  mortar is ideal for use with wet and dry ingredients.
  • The exterior of the mortar and the  pestle handle have been polished to allow the natural beauty of the granite to shine through, making it suitable for serving in as well as preparing in.
  • The interior of the mortar and the pestle end have been left unpolished to provide a rougher surface area ensuring maximum efficiency when grinding or pounding.
  • To clean, wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not place in a dishwasher.
  • This product is covered by a 2-year warranty. Please retain your receipt for proof of purchase. Accidental breakage, poor care and damage from misuse are not covered.

This solid granite pestle & mortar has a bowl diameter of 14cm making it ideal for creating and serving freshly made wet or dry mixes, pastes or sauces. Every aspect of the design has been considered to make pounding and grinding as easy as possible. The profile of the mortar is shaped to be comfortably cupped in the hand and the heavy-weight base makes it easy to use with even the toughest of ingredients. The pestle has been designed to fit perfectly inside the mortar ensuring maximum surface contact and the handle length ensures you can get plenty of grip.

The inside of the mortar and the end of the pestle have been left unpolished to assist with the breaking down of ingredients whilst the exterior surfaces have been lightly polished to allow the natural beauty of the granite to shine through. It is easy to see why this ancient and traditional kitchen tool is a must-have for professional chefs and enthusiastic home cooks alike.

Make your own hummus, salsa or guacamole by combining freshly muddled herbs, garlic and seasoning before adding your remaining ingredients. Once ready, take the mortar straight to the table and serve with tortilla chips or crudites. If you're not a dip fan why not try making your own unique BBQ rub or curry powder by grinding your favourite whole spices. Try lightly toasting the spices first in a dry pan for a few minutes to help release even more flavour from their natural oils. The large deep bowl is ideal for making large batches of your favourite spice blends to store and use at a later date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this! I’ve always wanted a pestle and mortar but never bought one, but now that we’ve had a kitchen makeover it makes sense to have this black granite pestle & mortar on the side in the kitchen. It’s certainly a talking point! I used this last Saturday when we had friends over for dinner and I needed to create seasoning for one of the chicken dishes I cooked. I’m really pleased with it. It works well with both wet and dry ingredients. I prefer it to faffing around chopping up ingredients. I like the design and look of it. The black granite is beautiful to look at. I can’t stop looking at it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all rounder after receiving my Pestle & Mortar, i have used everyday, to grind down fresh herbs to use in my cooking, so much better than trying to chop or cut, i find it keeps my herbs all in one place with no mess over my kitchen worktops. It is very easily cleaned, heavy so it doesn't move about all over the place. Really pleased with this product. Its even a good looking kitchen ornament when not in use. Visitors have remarked on its eye catching look. I wouldn't like to think id be without this very useful kitchen implement now. An excellent all rounder for my kitchen, definately no negatives.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pestle broke used less than 10 times Got this a couple of years ago to make Thai curry pastes with, can't have used it more than a handfull of times and the pestle has snapped at the neck. Happened whilst grinding roasted chillis, you'd have thought from the heft of the product it would be pretty sturdy but it appears not. Has never been dropped or used for anything other than it's intended purpose spent almost it's entire life undisturbed, sat in a drawer. Pretty disappointed with the quality. As I said it's super heavy and you'd expect it to be durable, alas no. Mortar hasn't shattered yet so that's a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A serious bit of kit! I have owned a pestle and mortar for many years, one of those shallow ceramic ones, I think I bought it after seeing Nigel Slater using one, I hate it, used it twice then stuck it in the back of the cupboard where I believe it remains to this day, why? Because it didn't have the heft or rough surface to grind seeds to a powder or the weight to reduce garlic and basil to a paste. This serious piece of kit is the polar opposite, impressively big, solid and weighty with sides so high you can give things a real bash without fear of them escaping and just enough texture on the inside to hold things in place whilst you reduce them to a satisfying mush. So far I have knocked up a batch of Thai curry paste, and two lots of pesto which took no time at all, and way more satisfying than chucking it into a processor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely design I like the design of this pestle and mortar. The granite black is lovely and makes the product eyecatching in the kitchen. The bowl is a good size which allows for ease in making “messier” items like guacamole as the items don’t come out of the bowl. I have used this to make guacamole and a steak rub and I can see I will use it to blend spices for dishes such as curries. All in all a good product with good looks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have this in my kitchen i am really happy with the purchase of my C&M solid granite, attractive mortar and pestle. The design of the sides of the deep bowl helps keep the herbs, spices and seeds in the centre whilst grinding them to a fine powder or paste. I can easiy create my own dishes, such as curries, by increasing and releasing the flavour of the ingredients.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke after 5 uses. Purchased 20 days ago. I bought this product through John Lewis on 14th May 2019. Have used it 5-7 times and the pestle broke on 3rd June 2019 Very disappointed considering I expected the pestle to be off good quality. Mortar is very good though. I do not recommend this product
