Spice is Life

Wake up your taste buds to high-definition flavor with fresh herbs, crushed in this extraordinary mortar and pestle, hand-carved from Himalayan crystal salt. Your favorite herbs are full of oils and flavor molecules that are diminished or destroyed when they are dehydrated. Crushing fresh leaves and stems, on the other hand, releases those flavors and scents for you to fully enjoy, and the salt itself helps to extract them from their cells in the plant. Himalayan salt is more durable than standard table salt, and with proper care it will last for many uses while still imparting a touch of flavor-enhancing saltiness to your herbs. Salt also has natural antibiotic properties, so cleaning your mortal and pestle is as easy as rinsing with water and allowing to dry. Made in Pakistan.

Brett Cramer wasn't always the salty genius he is today. Until 2009, he was focused on entrepreneurship in the tech industry. But that year, he decided to make a special holiday gift for his friends. Combining his love of gourmet cooking and his enjoyment of woodworking, he created a wooden base from scrap lumber to hold a row of test tubes, which he filled with unique salts from around the world. The response from his friends was so positive that he realized he had hit upon something wonderful. He refined his design and grew his homemade gift idea into a business that now offers 180 different kinds of salt from 30 different countries.

Handmade

Love the idea behind this mortar & pestle. What a great way to add a little Himalayan Salt to the meal. Parents use a mortar & pestle often for their herbs and this is great for them. Yes it's big, but then a lot of mortar & pestles are. Hopefully this will last them for a good long time.
I bought 2 - one for my Mother and one for me. Unfortunately one had a large piece on the side broken off. Glad I got two now

I picked up the box and it was extremely heavy. I opened it up and found out why. This is 6 inches high and 6 inches wide for the Mortar.. the pestle is 5 1/2 inches long.. Very large.. Rather comical looking in my kitchen.

    We grind most of our spices, anyway, and this makes it tastier and more fun. It's very pretty sitting on my counter, but does take up a lot of space.

    This is a beautiful mortar and pestle that I got for my mother. I had seen others that were okay, but just ordinary looking. So far she has loved it for crushing herbs for cooking.
