Mortar and pestle made by artisans in Spain. When preparing many Spanish dishes the mortar and pestle is an essential kitchen utensil. The clay mortar has a spot for the wooden pestle to rest in each corner for convenience. Each piece is handmade, painted and glazed. The red color is a characteristic of Salvatierra de los Barros, a traditional pottery town in the Iberian peninsula.
Mortar is both dishwasher and microwave safe.
