Very heavy duty and easy to use. It makes whole spices easy to grind to whatever consistency desired.

Granite Mortor & Pestle

This is the 2nd granite mortar & pestle from Cole & Mason. I do a lot of cooking ... love mine so much I also bought one for my daughter in NJ. Well made, sturdy and it works!

When you're looking for an adult mortar and pestle....

I've had a smallish mortar and pestle for quite some time. It was tedious for larger jobs, such as pesto, but it worked. When I was given the Cole & Mason 5.5 inch granite mortar & pestle, it was love at first sight. I wondered how I ever got by with the other. This is a substantial mortar & pestle. It is well weighted and has a wide useful mouth. The pestle (or is it the mortar?) is an impressive weapon to slay your grindables. I now look for things to pulverize. This is displayed prominently on my kitchen counter (and nothing is allowed up there!!).

Really cool!

I have always wanted a mortar and pestle for the kitchen. This does not disappoint. It is really stylish to leave out. Solid heavy weight that doesn't move when I'm mixing. So far I use it mostly for guacamole (great size for a portion for my family) but I look forward to expanding my use with cooking.
