Get Your Grind On
Our mortar and pestle is made with sustainably sourced walnut, cherry and maple lumber. We use a food safe, flax seed oil and beeswax mixture to provide a smooth, satin finish that can be easily maintained over time and should provide decades of faithful service.
Have a food allergy? Need an alternative finish? Let us know! We can’t solve every problem, but we will promise to do everything reasonably possible to accommodate you.
Caring For Your Mortar and Pestle
To clean your mortar and pestle, use warm, soapy water and scrub with a standard scotch brite pad. Do not submerge it in water.
When you are finished cleaning, leave it to dry completely. When dry, it may be rough to the touch. Rubbing down with a clean, dry scotch brite pad should get rid of the roughness.
As mentioned above, your mortar and pestle is finished with a mixture of flax seed oil and beeswax. This is a food safe, permeable finish. Over time, with routine care, the finish may start to fade. Simply apply a thin coat of Wooden Union Oil. Let the wood absorb the oil for approximately 30 minutes. Then, wipe away the excess as thoroughly as possible. Let the oil cure for 48 hours and your mortar and pestle should be good as new!
