This mortar is a fixture in many homes throughout Spain. We use it to make alioli (garlic mayonnaise) or to crush saffron threads.
The ceramic mortar is heavy and solid, and is kept stable when held by its handle to create sauces and the spice mix. It has a spout in one of the corners, which makes it easier to empty the contents.
The enamel is durable and glossy, lead free and suitable for food. The beech wood handle is made from a solid piece of wood and is a suitable shape for holding.
