Mortar and Pestle Set
Do you enjoy making fresh pesto from your own home-grown basil? How about guacamole? This mortar and pestle adds a gourmet touch to food prep and looks nice on your countertop, too.
The bowl is turned from a blank of solid cherry. As it ages, cherry develops a beautiful rich tone that enhances the figure and grain in the wood. The bowl is 5-3/4″ at its widest point and has a 4″ opening with a beaded rim.
The contrasting pestle is 6-1/4″ long and is turned from solid maple.
The mortar and pestle are protected with food-safe walnut oil. Walnut oil is readily available and easy to apply (just wipe it on, rub it in a bit, and let it dry) if you wish to refresh the finish from time to time.
Use and Care: A quick hand wash with mild detergent and drying with a soft cloth is all this set needs. As with all wooden items, keep the set out of the dishwasher and avoid soaking it in the sink.
