Very Pleased
My Mortar and Pestle arrived damaged but Sur La Table sent a replacement within days. It is a beautiful piece of functional art and I just love it! I use mine to grind my dried herbs but I could see many other uses. The grain of the marble is so lovely and it is so heavy and sturdy but easy to work with and to clean. It looks more expensive than it is...a great value and wise purchase.

Super functional and very pretty
Great size: not huge but large enough to accommodate an ample amount of pesto and other sauces, as well as the blending/mashing of smaller quantities of spices, nuts, garlic, etc. Very sturdy: quite heavy, but not unwieldy. The pestle fits very comfortably in the hand, making it very easy to work with your ingredients. And the marble is gorgeous!

Nice
Pretty and works well. The "stippled" surface in the bottom of the mortar and on the tip of the pestle help in grinding. With harder ingredients )such as hard spice seeds) you get more of a pulverizing effect with this tool than a grinding effect you would get with a suribachi-type tool.

Perfect!
Definitely would recommend this. It's the perfect size. It's non-porous, smooth surface cleans up great with no lingering aromas from your last grinding. Plus it's beautiful to look at.

Gift Package
The entire order was a gift. I already have very similar items, some of which were purchased at the local Sur La Table. Obviously I liked them well enough to gift them to the recipient.

Used to crush pills for tube feedings
My husband has to crush all his pills for the tube feedings required after being treated for throat cancer. The plastic "pill crushers" just didn't do the job. The Small Marble Mortar is perfect.

White marble is so cute!
Brooke H on Aug 22, 2019
Of three possible choices, one (the molcajete) did not seem to be of safe quality based on reviews; the second choice was too small to be of much use. That left this one!

Joann R on Jan 14, 2019
Rave reviews, plus it's a larger size than many I've been able to find, especially for such a great price. However, I do wish it was offered in a 4-cup size.

Judy A on Dec 5, 2018
beautiful - practical - great price
Linda D on Dec 3, 2018
It is a requested gift. According to reviews, one should always choose marble or granite when using a mortar and pestle. This fits the bill and got great reviews. The look is very classy as well
Theresa F on Nov 26, 2018
Because wooden mortar and pestles tend to mildew/mold.

make better pesto, people. gift registry.
Kevin N on Jul 8, 2019
where is this made, what countr
A shopper on Nov 22, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Release the full, true flavor of herbs and spices. Made of durable, elegant marble, mortar and pestle set is great for pulverizing and grinding herbs and spices into seasoning pastes and spice mixtures. Can also be use to grind other foods, such as nuts and avocados for guacamole. This item is made in China and held to the highest standards of quality and safety
what are the sizes?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: ?Dimensions: 2½" x 4½"; 4" x 4"; 4½" x 5½"
Does the underside of the mortar and pestle have a cushioned surface or is the entire mortar granite?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This entire mortar is made of marble. There is no cushion on the bottom.
Should you cure the mortar and pestle before use?
Edwin N on May 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Actually, it never occurred to me to cure it and it is still as useful as the day I bought it. Hope this helps.
Is the interior completely smooth, or does it have any roughness or ridges to help prevent things from slipping around?
Cynthia O on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The inside is smooth without ridges, but it is not slick. I haven't had trouble with things slipping around. I had a wooden mortar and pestle previously and this new marble one works so much better.
What is the capacity (e.g., 2 cups)?
Mark V on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: About a cup. Perfect for herbs and spices because they stay together in bottom and get ground! Rosemary, cardamom, coriander, fresh cilantro, paste oh garlic, etc. Probably too small for guacamole, which I mash with a fork.
I already purchased the larger one, but was wondering if it would leave a green stain if I used cilantro or parsley?
A shopper on May 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Haven’t had that problem with mine - washes out with dish soap just fine. Even when I do turmeric!
Is it ruff on the inside?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would not call it rough. It works well for the way I use it, which is to press garlic and salt together to make a paste that resembles toothpaste. Excellent with oil, vinegar, and lemon on a salad.
Can you please tell me the manufacturer of this?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Manufacturer: Trans-World Association Inc.
