The mortar and pestle are ancient cooking tools which have been used around the world for centuries to release the full flavor and aroma of herbs and spices.
The Le Creuset mortar and pestle are made of their signature stoneware, which blocks moisture absorption and resists scratches and stains. This mortar features an unglazed interior that is abrasive enough to effectively break down contents, yet durable enough to withstand the friction of repeated grinding.
- Dense stoneware blocks moisture absorption to prevent cracking, crazing and rippling
