A mortar and pestle is a simple tool but a lot goes into the design. It has to be small enough that you can crush a few seeds but large enough that you can crush larger items like dried peppers or to make aioli. It has to be heavy enough to stay put but not so heavy that you don't know where to store it. The surface of the tools has to be rough so you have good friction but not so porous that food sticks to it or it is impossible to clean. The shape of both tools has to be such that they mate well as you move the pestle around so you can grind things into powder if you need to. The pestle has to fit into your hand with various grips.

I have used a bunch of bad tools such as those that are so small you can't hold the pestle, or made of wood or other material that wears out or can't be cleaned, or too shallow so that stuff flies everywhere or so deep that you can't see what you're doing.

This is the perfect tool on all counts for me. I am usually cooking for 4 and sometimes 8-10 and it's the perfect size for crushing a few teaspoons or tablespoons of spices or a small batch of aioli or spice paste. If you're making huge meals or need to make large quantities you might look carefully at the size. It is heavy (made of granite) but can easily be moved around, but it is attractive enough that I leave it out in the kitchen as a decoration.

I like to try to make mundane dishes get a new edge to them using ingredients and tools for that help, but there are some things using a food processor is like using a torch to light a candle. The Kota brings simplicity to the experience. I made pesto and crushing, then muddling it all together was easy and cathartic. This is a large heavy duty tool that was so easy to use because of that weight. Whether you’re cracking peppercorns or creaming citrus zest, you will feel in control because of the tapered comfortable handle.
Next up: hummus and guacamole!

was delivered earlier than expected...which is great because we really wanted to try this for guacamole for weekend company...works better than the ones we had previously...look spectacular and we served the guacamole in the Mortar because it looks great too!

nice weight and enough roughness in the inside to grind perfectly.

This is very nice and looks great on my counter. However, I thought I was ordering a smaller one. This thing is large. I can almost put a small coconut in it! That's my fault for not checking the size.
I'm keeping it because it is definitely a nice heavy duty one

Looks great, is heavy and solid making crushing and grinding spices a breeze. I had another mortar and pestle but the pestle was so short and oddly shaped I had to put so much pressure and weight just to grind peppercorns. This mortar and pestle easily grinds them in seconds. Was a great buy.

I love to use this for my spices and fresh herbs. When I received it I had to wash it many times and very well before using this product.
