The granite darkens into a nice, beautiful charcoal grey (at left is a new set which darkens over time due to oils in your food).

What sets it apart from others is the generous capacity, the beautiful appearance, and you can whack it as hard as you can without fear of chip or crack. You'll know when you pick it up that it will last a lifetime--they're very heavy and solid.
The mortar is carved from a single block of grante. Our special promotion price is for the 6" size which is our smallest but still, provides all the capacity you need to pound up the finest barbecue rubs. Also infuse fresh ground flavors of basil, sage, tarragon, garlic, pepper and much more.

Using and Caring For Your Thai Mortar
These mortars are heavy, well balanced and suitable for rigorous pounding & grinding. If you ever see the way TV chef Jamie Oliver uses his, you'll know that this mortar and pestle and take a beating without fear of breakage. The nice weight and taper of the pestle assists you. When using the mortar and pestle, it's a good idea to place a folded dish towel down on the counter first, as the heavy mortar can damage your countertop. When finished, simply place mortar and pestle in the sink and rinse it with soap & warm water.
As Thai culture has lots of old "legends" and superstitions handed down through generations, there is an old wives tale about the stone mortar and pestle that we'd like to share. Although you can really pound the pestle as hard as you can, it should always be done with food in the mortar. If a woman pounds the pestle into an empty mortar, Thai superstition has it that her breasts will stretch to the ground.
