Custom Blend

Imbued with Japanese influence, this porcelain mortar and pestle and ginger grater from Suri was thoughtfully created to handle prep jobs simply and efficiently. Grind fresh spices, create custom condiment blends, or even mix up dishes like pesto, aioli, or tapenade. The ceramic bowl, or suribachi, has an unglazed interior with diagonal ridges that help boost the grinding action. And the pestle, or surikogi, is made from peach wood that won’t damage the bowl while it makes quick work out of spices. We liked that the grater is built into the lid, which helps do the job more easily—and with less mess—than others we’ve tried. And a pouring spout and silicone ring on the bottom of the bowl help keep spills at bay. Elegant and packed with functionality, Suri streamlines prep work with ease.

    Hello Chris,

    Good to hear from you again.

    The video that the Grommet did does a great job showing the versatility of this product, and how it is used. The packaging does have some photos that show how it used as well. I think this particular product is very intuitive.

    There are may great recipes for mortar and pestle that you can find on line. We will be posting some video recipes on our website as well.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    Are the bowl's ridges sharp? Might I need to watch my knuckles around the sides as I grind, or wear a glove? Are slightly longer peachwood pestles available?

    Hello Nathan,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    The ridges are more rough than sharp. Also the top of the mortar has about an inch of smooth surface, so I would say that a glove is not necessary. I just ran my knuckles over the surface and didn't have any issues.

    Unfortunately, we only have the one size pestle.

    @Ronald I respect limited size peachwood for sustainability reasons; might unlacquered bamboo be an option?

    I think a fruitwood would be better than bamboo. This is what the Japanese normally use.

    Also it should be a hardwood.

    @Ronald Ah; thanks. I was just wondering in case I found the included one a bit small. I'm glad I've held off investing in a mortar & pestle set up to now :-)

    The cool thing about this product is that the lid has a grater built into the lid that is perfect for ginger or turmeric and has a silicone gasket built in to keep it on tight. It also has a silicone base so it won't scratch the countertop. This is really a multipurpose tool.

    Enjoy
