Black Marble Mortar & Pestle



Black Marble Mortar & Pestle

Our Black Marble Mortar & Pestle is one of several versions we carry in our store. Mortars & Pestles have one of the longest histories of continual use as a tool. They have been traced back about 40,000 years and have been found in one form or another in virtually every civilization on Earth. They have been made from about every substance as well. Wood, bamboo, stone, marble, bone, ceramic, porcelain, terra cotta, volcanic rock and more. The most common substances to make them out of are hard wood, marble, ceramic and volcanic rock.

For our purpose. they are used to grind or crush spices, herbs, nuts and other foods. They are also used to mix food together as when making guacamole. They are still used in the pharmaceutical industry to grind and mix compounds.

This style is very popular since marble is very hard, doesn’t absorb flavors, doesn’t discolor and washed up easily. The rough interior of the mortar and the rough end of the pestle allow the spices to grind up easily and let you control how fine you grind them.

We carry other models throughout the year and while we try to keep them all on our website, we only stock a small quantity of some models and don’t always have them online. Check with us in our store or on our website for what Mortar & Pestles we have in stock.
