Mortars & Pestles
Mortar & Pestle Olive
The mortar & pestle has been used for hundreds if not thousands of years as the tool of choice to crush spices and herbs. The Emile Henry mortar & pestle is designed to extract the flavor and oils from spices such as fennel, cumin and cloves while offering the classic beauty of French styling.
The shape of the mortar and the bowl, is designed so cooks can comfortably press and crush spices in the kitchen or at the table. The bowl of the Emile Henry mortar is 5.5 inches in diameter giving plenty of room for grinding and crushing spices, herbs and garlic. The mortar is well-balanced and deep offering leverage and stability. The unglazed ceramic interior offers the friction needed to properly grind spices.
