Which style of mortar & pestle is for me?

Our Classic styled Mortar & Pestle features a smooth rim for easy cleanup. The Rustic version is the moody cousin of the Classic style, with a live edge around the rim. The edges of the Rustic Mortar & Pestles can be quite rugged with bark, so choose this option if you want a earthy, organic feel.

So how do I use a Mortar & Pestle?

Mortar & Pestles are a traditional - and speedy! - way to crush aromatics like chilis, ginger and garlic for further use in the kitchen. You can grind whole spices like cloves and allspice into powdered spices for the freshest, most aromatic flavors. Make quick work of smashing avocados for guacamole. Make your own blends of gourmet seasoned salts and baking sugars. The possibilities are endless with our olive wood mortar and pestle.

Our beautiful olive wood collection is handmade in the Mediterranean by artisans skilled in woodworking. They only select olive trees over 100 years old that have stopped producing olives. The twisted branches of the olive wood tree create gorgeous patterns in the wood which creates stunning pieces once prepared.

The finished products are all-natural, with no treatments or chemicals used in the making of them. Each piece is handcrafted from a single piece of olive wood for a seamless finish and a beautiful addition to your dining table.

Hand wash in warm water, dry promptly, and rub with olive oil to keep your olive wood in stunning condition.
