The Eva Solo mortar and pestle combines practicality and style and is just the right size for storing in the kitchen cupboard or out on the kitchen counter top as a decorative feature. The porcelain mortar with pestle offers an easy way to crush and grind herbs and spices. The bottom of the bowl has transverse grooves which ensure that herbs and spices do not just get pushed around by the pestle. The oblong shape of the bowl provides a good grip that is pleasant to hold, and the non-slip base ensures the mortar sits firmly on the worktop without leaving any scratches. The pestle, with a firm secure silicone grip, sits inside the mortar after use.
