Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what I was looking for Really great product, especially for the price. I've used it a few times now and am very pleased with the size (I can make several servings of pesto but have also ground down a small herb sample) and the washability. I also love that they ship their products in packaging which is entirely recyclable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good price for a beautiful and functional product I looked for a mortar and pestle at several stores and could not find one. Crate and Barrel have several at different price points. I really like that this product serves a double purpose as a tool and a decorative item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Price, Wonderful Product I've had this for about a week and I love the heck out of it! I have been looking for a mortal and pestle of a this size and haven't been able to find one that was affordable or attractive until now.I already had one of those widely available smaller marble sets, but I hated it because the pestle was too light and small in the hand to grind anything without a great deal of effort. It also had a coating that flaked off from the unavoidable banging around the edge of the mortar. With this Crate & Barrel M&P, I've already ground down whole cloves, Mexican cinnamon bark, and whole mustard seeds. The wide bowl and weighty pestle make quick work of the task.I recommend this for anyone who likes to buy whole spices. Sure I could get an electric spice grinder, but that would involve a lot of money, difficult to wash parts, and another ugly machine that I have to find a place to store. This set looks great left on the counter and cleans up with a dash of dish soap and a few swipes of a sponge. Even the oily/dark clove stains washed away without a problem. I can't wait to try my hand at garlic or vanilla paste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for the Size/ Quality Mortar and Pestles come in many different sizes. Most people are use to seeing the smaller ones. This is a large M&P. IF you are doing a small task... maybe a tea spoon size or smaller, it might not be as efficient as a smaller one.. but if you are doing anything larger, it is ideal. It should stand up to the wear and tear that M&Ps get since it is thick walled and porcelain.If you have never used one before, they are for pulverizing material into powder. this could be salt, or sugar, herbs, grains ( flours) , or fine mixing ( pulverizing things together)... I plan to use it for cooking... so it will be mostly herbs (fresh and dried)... I"m curious to see if it will make butters.. such as sesame seed ( tahini) or peanut or sunflower... different nuts ( walnuts, almond).... It is not as efficient as a grinder for butters but it should do for small batches used for flavoring etc. It is a nice tool to have in the kitchen and for the price and size, I've never seen better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big but not too big Your first impression of the mortar and pestle will be that it's too big, but i would recommend getting it and testing it out (crate and barrel has a great return policy) because it's really a perfect size. Also a great weight and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what we needed We had an herb garden on our patio this summer. Instead of chopping the herbs, this mortar and pestle bowl will serve us much better. It is a great size and usable for other kitchen jobs also. Having it on display in your Michigan Ave/Chicago window prompted me to come in and purchase it. The attendant was extremely helpful.
