why this product

The vitrified ceramic of this mortar and pestle set has an especially strong and dense structure, resulting in a kitchen tool that will not absorb flavors, odors or stains—so you can go ahead and crush a garlicky pesto, toasted hazelnuts or a coarse berry sauce without worrying about the transfer of flavors from one recipe to another. The handle of the pestle is made with beech wood that has been left unfinished for a non-slip grip. The fully vitrified porcelain is created in a controlled kiln firing that closes the microscopic pores of the clay. The strong structure also makes the mortar and pestle versatile and easy to care for, as it is can be put in the dishwasher, freezer and oven. 

use & care
