This mortar and pestle are made in fully vitrified porcelain that is suitable for wet or dry ingredients. The smooth natural handle fits comfortably in the hand, ensuring quick, efficient grinding. The mortar is thrown on the potter’s wheel using one of the finest porcelain. The ergonomic shape of the pestle helps improve the grinding process.
