From The Manufacturer

mortar and pestle set gramercy kitchen company co We designed our mortar and pestle to work perfectly in your kitchen – with ALL the features you’ll need. Because of the thoughtful care we’ve taken at developing this product, this mortar and pestle set will quickly become your new favorite kitchen tool. The mortar and pestle is one of the oldest kitchen implements around – and was one of the few tools used in ancient times in cooking food. The flavors and aromas achieved when our seasonings are grinded and pounded are impossible to achieve with any other technique – modern food processors cut, but they can’t crush. Crushing changes and deepens the flavors fundamentally. But, even with all that magic happening – there are certain features that show up in some mortar and pestle sets that can make a mortar and pestle very difficult to use, and some features that make using it a joy. Our mortar and pestle was carefully designed to function perfectly. mortar and pestle set WE THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING While other other mortar and pestle sets are small or lightweight, our solidly built set weighs about a hefty 5 pounds – keeping it in place on your counter while you work and ensuring a set that will stand the test of time – you’ll have this forever. mortar and pestle set COMES COMPLETE WITH GARLIC PEELER Because we know you’ll use lots of garlic in your mortar and pestle, we include a handy garlic peeler. Because crushing garlic in your mortar and pestle breaks down the cell walls, processing garlic with your m&p releases a whole other level of flavor in your garlic. And our peeler makes it super easy. mortar and pestle set A PERFECTLY DESIGNED SET We feature the most important feature that will make your work more efficient – deep groves on the inside of our mortar bowl. We’ve also included all the key other features that make grinding your favorite seasoning easy and quick – a deep bowl that will keep ingredients from splattering, a footed bowl which adds steadiness while you work. We didn’t miss a thing. We also made sure to design our pestle with a wide, broad head to grip as much as possible for efficient grinding and a tapered end for your hand’s comfort. Our pestle is also longer than others – which will keep your knuckles from banging against the side of the mortar while you work. mortar and pestle set NO SCRATCH, SKID PROOF PROTECTIVE PAD We’ve included a non-skid protective pad to keep your counter top safe from scratches and to keep your implement in place when in use. So you’ll get the benefit of having a hefty implement for long term use, and there will be no skidding around on your counters.
