White Stoneware
11.5 x 7.5cm
white stoneware finish
sturdy and durable
easy clean


I've just ordered one, but to be honest I'm a little wary of a sub £4 mortar & pestle with a stoneware "finish"! Still, according to camelizer it's the cheapest it's ever been, so if you need one it's worth a go!

Agreed ! at that price its got to be worth a try ... voted hot

Wanted one of these for a while, thanks OP

Cheers!

Good price; these things are surprisingly expensive!

Cold because all I can think of is the horrible noise it makes when you grind.

Makes me shudder.

which part is the mortar and which is the pestle?

Good deal! Elsewhere it's around £7.
Great aid to grind the spice for a tasty curry!

hope my mrs likes it......

Would have assumed the same myself but had a look on Wikipedia ( en.wikipedia.org/wik…tle ) and it said the following:
{geek mode on} - "The English word mortar derives from classical Latin mortarium, meaning, among several other usages, "receptacle for pounding" and "product of grinding or pounding". {geek mode off}

I'm guessing the "pounding" bit is where they got the weapon / shell name from.

it's showing as £9.97??

look at the more buying choices on the right hand side of the screen. Unfortunately if you order it from amazon it is now showing 3 to 6 week despatch time.

It does show £9:97 however in small print just below it also shows £3:89. The free delivery has given me a date after 28th December to 9th January 2012. As i'm not in a rush it will do me fine.

Try smashing spices with this, and you've got a smashed bowl. get a heavy duty one from an asian supermarket if you can.

so which one is the mortar?



"A mortar and pestle is a tool used to crush, grind, and mix solid substances (trituration). The pestle is a heavy bat-shaped object, the end of which is used for crushing and grinding. The mortar is a bowl, typically made of hard wood, ceramic or stone. The substance to be ground is placed in the mortar and ground, crushed or mixed with the pestle."

Bring on this evening for the crushing, grinding, and mixing!
