Ideal for blending and grinding herbs, spices, garlic, and rubs to release essential oils that will make foods more flavorful. Non-skid base keeps mortar in place and knob at the top of the pestle provides secure grip while working. Cast stainless steel.
I love that this is stainless steel. Very easy to clean. It has the no-slip bottom which is crucial. Good productReview by Kim (on 12/18/12)
