Clearly, this is not your ordinary mortar and pestle. We know it's the sleek, shapely, and striking design that made you look twice, but wait until you learn about the smart functionality: lightweight and strong, the unique shape of this kitchen essential makes it far easier to hold than traditional versions, so you can really get your grind on. And it's a cinch to pour your crunched-up creations through the handle-turned-spout. Plus, it's small enough to tuck nicely in a drawer. But if you'd prefer to keep this showpiece on display, the sleek band is made for easy (and attractive) hanging. Looks like you've found a stylish excuse to do more muddling.
