For the home chef, a mortar and pestle may not be high on the must have list. But, a quality mortar and pestle can take your next dish to a higher level. Cilio offers a wide variety of beautiful and functional mortar and pestle that would be perfect under the tree.
A mortar and pestle is a versatile kitchen tool. It can be used for grinding spices and breaking down herbs. The untreated, coarse finish on the inside of the bowl helps to essential oils and full flavor of the herbs and spices. A tall wall helps to keep all items safely inside the bowl.
This kitchen tool is often used in Mexican cooking, especially for guacamole. The avocado can be broken down with the salt, spices and tomato. With the course sides and hefty pestle, the whole process is a quick endeavor. Plus, the bowl can be use as an attractive serving dish.
Cilio offers several different styles and sizes of mortars and pestles. Each one is made from one solid piece of granite. Customers can choose the color, size and style that reflects their preference. Prices range from $20-$60.
