After drying, rejuvenate and protect the wood by rubbing it down with Ironwood Butcher Block Oil. Apply the oil liberally and allow it to soak in thoroughly before use. Regular application of our Butcher Block Oil will prevent cracking and preserve the rich natural colors of the wood.

Regarding Ironwood Acacia Wooden Mortar & Pestle, Here is why this particular mortar & pestle are worth your consideration: If you are going to use this wooden device in the kitchen, (as opposed to just putting it on display), it is good for grinding. I have visited about 4 major well known stores, and checked out about 10 different wooden motars (on line as well), and none of the wooden mortars had the features for which mortars are really used. This mortar did have the important features: (1) the pestle tip is nice and wide, about 2.5 inch diameter, angled. This makes it practical to grind things. (2) The mortar has a wide opening, 4 inches diameter, yet it is not too deep. The depth is about 1.5 to 1.75 inches, and the depression or inner surface is round. So if you want to crush, say seeds, then you have practical access to do so. (3) the top end of the pestle is comfortable to handle firmly, which is important if you want to really crush things in there; the handle is about 4 inches on length. 80% of the wooden mortars that I have seen were either too small, the pestle was too thin, or the mortar was so deep that it would not be practical to use for small crushing jobs. Believe me, if you want to crush more, you will probably just want to buy a mortar with a 10 or 16 inch diameter, and you'll need major muscle to actually crush something. In such case, I would just use a food processor. One more point that people do not seem to get: although wood is not the perfect material for grinding (because you need to be carefull to crush mostly dry ingredients, and because the wooden surface is rather smooth) -- wood could possibly be the most inert material to use if you care about health. Companies that sell metal, stone, earthen ware, or marble materials, do not tell you the chemical makeup of the material. When you grind food, small bits of the mortar and pestle actually come off and get into your foods. These amounts are really very tiny. So if you get some extremely tiny amount of the wood in your diet, that is usually perfectly fine. This is not necesarily the case with metals or stones. Unless the mortar manufacturer specifically certifies the quality of the material in writing, you do not know what bits of the material you are ingesting. For example, metal and stone mortars will enrich your food with certain minerals and possibly some heavy metals. Some of these minerals, like calcium, are okay. But you really cannot be sure if some of these materials contain excess amounts of poisonous lead, cadmium, etc. Even tiny amounts of lead or heavy metals can actually make you less healthy. That is why I chose a wooden mortar. Wood does not guaranty that you will not encounter something bad, but Wood does not typically contain such heavy metals. I look for a mortar which is not coated with paints or varnishes-- because as you may have guessed, these also end up in your food when you grind with the mortar and pestle. My only negative point about this mortar is that it is not made of one solid piece of wood. This could be a problem, because the parts will eventually split apart if you are not carefull to only grind seeds, dry herbs, and low-moisture items. Though I do wash it with soapy water quickly and immediately dry it after each use. The thing about it not being from a single piece of wood, is also that some kind of cement or glue must have been used to put the pieces together, so go figure what's in there. A word to the wise: if you use a wooden mortar, you might consider not grinding strong tasting things in there like garlic, cinnamon, or cloves, because you will get that flavor in you next grind session. I usually grind seeds and some spices which are not too strong, and use a hand-held garlic press for the garlic. Then I mix everything later in a separate bowl. If you really are not concerned about ingesting stone, then a big earthen ware or volcanic stone with a wide pestle tip - would be more practical than a wooden one. It all depends on your interests. For food, I shoot for a good piece of wood mortar. I am writing this review because this is the type of review that I wanted to find when I was looking for a motar and pestle. So now there is one, if you are still reading it. One last note: I use the mortar to grind small bits of ingredients, so I will not have to pull out my food processor and then have to clean all the parts. Be aware that you really need a bit of vigorous and controlled muscle action to grind things with a mortar. Strength & patients is needed with tougher ingredients, like flax seeds. If you have pains or carpal tunnel syndrome, then maybe a mortar is not your best option. But a typical little coffee grinder is not necessarily appropriate for grinding certain foods, so that is why I now have a wooden mortar & pestle as well. My coffee grinder instructions say not to grind oily seeds, like flax or peanuts. There is a reason for that! Good luck in your search!

The product is NOT as pictured! The wood looks like some cheap kind. The Top doesn’t close tight and leaves a big gap, which ruins the salt because of the moisture. If no star was an option, I wouldn’t have given it one star.

I have had multiple salt cellars and I love this one. I was momentarily disappointed by the visible screw head, but it is counter-sunk and in no way inhibited the function of the cellar. The wood was lovely and smooth and the motion of the lid was super smooth. Also, there was almost no gap between the lid and body which was awesome! (Several of my previous salt cellars had gaps that caused my salt to absorb moisture.)
The only reason I gave this four stars is that it appeared it was oiled either after the sticker was put on the bottom, or the sticker was adhered before the oil set. The odor people are complaining of in other reviews smelled like food safe mineral oil and wasn't concerning for me. I simply left it open and out for a couple days to ensure it was fully dry before putting salt in it.

The lid swings out to open, but the hinge is not very snug, so it tends to flop open and does not close tightly. There is a distinct smell to it (wood? Finish?) so that I have not put salt in it as I had planned, and may be best used for trinkets and such. Finish is not as smooth as I had expected.

I use it for everything that needs pulverizing!!! The mating geometry of the pestle and well are really well designed. They make it really easy to take on the task of, well, smashing up stuff.

I oil it every time I use, once it's dry of course, with olive oil and it keeps it nice.

According to my tape measure, and my aging, yet recently calibrated, eye balls, the outside diameter is about 5-7/8" the inside top edge of the well is close to 4" and is near to 2" deep at the center of the well. The total height is about 2-3/4"

One thing I've noticed, when researching items on , is that in the "Product Details" area, the "product dimensions" and "weight" are sometimes misleading as they often refer to the outside dimensions and the weight of the packaging for the item. It's best to find the product dimensions down in the "Product Description" area, but in this case, no go. The lights were on, but no dimensions were home. So you roll the dice and figure it might be a bit smaller than stated in the "Product Details" area . Or you look for one that has more precise dimensional information and call it a day. There's no point in getting all bent out of shape over it my dear.

In the final analyses, I'm glad I got this smashing tool, if you get it, you'll probably be glad too!!!!

I bought the salt box as a ring-bearer's box and as a nice box to hold some gourmet salt that we were gifted.

It's a beautiful box - the bottom appears to be made from a single piece of wood, instead of two pieces (a hollow cylinder and disk). It took some work to get the adhesive sticker off. I used some mineral oil that I use to condition my butcher's block, and it brought out the beautiful wood tones in the box.

The lid is just a little bit loose, and it's not an airtight seal. I live in an arid climate now, but if I were still living in high humidity, I believe the salt would clump up quickly.

Overall, it's beautiful and satisfies the purposes I had for it, but I would not say I was blown away

I love this salt holder! My husband asked for this as a gift and is going to enjoy using this in the kitchen. The wood is super smooth. The lid slides easily from side to side. It is also bigger than I thought. I was imagining a pinch bowl, but this is bigger.

My husband has been using this daily since he received it for Christmas. He LOVES it! He says it's the perfect size. There are no signs of wear or loosening of the lids. VERY HAPPY WITH THIS!

Would recommend to family and friends.
