The pestle that comes with the mortar has a thinner handle that's easier to grip, with a knob near the handle that keeps it from slipping out of your hand. There is a heavier knob at the other end with a wider surface area, which directs force more effectively onto spices so you don't need to exert as much energy. And the mortars also feature helpful pouring spouts to direct spices into a bowl or pan, not all over your kitchen counter—it's a subtle addition that makes a world of difference. To clean your mortar and pestle, we recommend using a damp cloth and avoiding dish soap, as with any cast-iron cookware.
This large set has a generous capacity that's especially useful for grinding spices in large batches or making pestos and salsas. Its accompanying pestle is 7.5 inches long and tapered to allow for comfort and control—a firm grip on the pestle makes grinding easier on your hand, and you won't have to worry about banging your knuckles against the edges of the bowl.
