Helen’s Asian Kitchen 5-1/2-Inch Ceramic Suribachi Set

[ReviewAZON asin="B000UEYXL8"]A Japanese version of the mortar and pestle, this suribachi set from Helen's Asian Kitchen is ideally suited to grinding and crushing herbs, seeds, and spices for deliciously fresh food. Crafted from durable earthenware with a rich brown outer glaze, the suribachi bowl features an unglazed, ribbed interior. This design holds ingredients at a slope for efficient, visible grinding. The coordinating wooden pestle, or surikogi, works well with the ceramic materials, so that the ingredients, not the bowl, take the beating. Comfortable in the hand, the pestle is shaped to maximize the contours of the suribachi bowl for uniform and quick results. A bamboo brush also comes with the set for precision cleaning of the bowls' ribs. All pieces should be washed by hand to preserve their integrity. --Emily Bedard[/ReviewAZON] [...more]
