Porcelain Mortar and Pestle

Porcelain Mortar and Pestle

from 150.00

Finally!  A Mortar and Pestle that have a much greater surface area contact with each other.  Each bash or muddle is massively more effective.  With a whisper of texture on the mortar interior and a bulbous pestle that matches the mortar's interior curve, grinding dry spices, crushing nuts, or making infused oils is finished in no time.  With a density comparable to granite, vitrified porcelain is the apothecary's time-honored choice for medicinal-grade tools.  Modifications available upon commissioned request.

Wall thicknesses range from 1/2" to 1 1/2" depending on scale of the overall unit.  Larger models of the mortars are a full inch thick at any grinding surface, tapering to thinner away from pressure points.  This applies to the pestle as well, which is carefully wheel-thrown to provide a massive and strong striking surface. 

Pictured first is a large mortar at 9 lbs, measuring 10" by 10" by 6" tall, and its pestle at 3 lbs, measuring 5" by 5" by 8" tall standing on its own.  Should you wish to employ the unit for its thermal mass (culturing dairy or incubating bread), I include a thick lid (2-3 lbs).  All parts are oven and dishwasher safe.

Pictured second are two spouted sets, the larger (9"x9"x5", 9 lbs) would hold 1/2 gallon of liquid, the smaller (6"x6"x3", 3lbs), 2+ cups.  I use these constantly.

The third pair of images is a more upright configuration, 1 1/2 liters/ quarts of volume. Please use the images as sparks for your imaginative commission, and I will make what you'd like to order.

I back this item with a six-month guarantee of a full refund if it is not to your liking.  I do understand that the notion of bashing one piece of porcelain against another is counter-intuitive.  Trust that I have given this design quite the test by now, and my cooking has improved in the process.
