Lao-style Clay Mortar and Pestle
Handmade in Thailand of long-lasting clay, this is a traditional mortar & pestle used to make a wide range of Thai and Laotian dishes.
See our recipe for som tum for a popular favorite
This mortar is a crude, simple fired clay, very "rustic" in appearance and definitely not a work of art; however, it's highly functional.
The mortar is 6.5 in. deep and 8 in. wide, with a capacity of approx 8 cups. The pestle is made of beechwood (as any other material would break the mortar) and is 11 in. long.
We also offer a much heavier stone mortar and pestle.
