Emile Henry Mortar and Pestle

This unglazed ceramic set offers enough friction for grinding but is lighter and easier to handle than the usual marble.

The mortar and pestle has yet to be improved upon by technological advances. Use it to crush spices for cooking, muddle mint for drinks and smash avocados for dip. $36 at better kitchen stores or www.emilehenryusa.com.
