The ridges in this hand-crafted suribachi, or Japanese mortar, help crush ingredients without bruising them, keep ingredients in the bowl. The Japanese set stands out for the grooves inside that break down ingredients, paired with a lightweight wooden pestle that’s easy to wield, allowing them to easily extract flavor from ingredients through good design.
The inside of the bowl is natural clay and the upper rim outside has a cobalt glaze. Food-safe and beautiful.
