Made by hand on the island of Mallorca, our gorgeous olive wood mortar and pestle is a great addition to your home kitchen. You'll find a mortar and pestle in nearly every kitchen in Spain. Use it as the Spanish do to hand crush saffron for your next paella or to make traditional Spanish sauces like ali oli.
Not preparing a Spanish dish? The extremely hard surface of the olive wood makes this mortar and pestle perfect for crushing garlic and spices or making homemade pastes and pâtés.
Each part of this mortar and pestle is carved from a solid piece of dense, beautifully grained olive wood. Each piece has been aged and treated with oil. To maintain this olive wood mortar and pestle, simply wipe occasionally with food safe mineral oil.
Hand wash only, not recommended for dishwasher use.
