Preparing Your Mortar & Pestle
Season with White Rice
With all Mortar & Pestles you'll want to be sure to season it the first time. Rinse with clean water (no soap) and let it air dry. You'll then want to grind a small handful of white rice. Discard and repeat until the rice grinds white.
Followed by Garlic
Next add 4 cloves of garlic, mash and muddle them together.
Then Cumin with Salt & Pepper
Add 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper to the garlic. Grind it all together and discard. Rinse once more (without soap) and allow to air dry. Your mortar and pestle is now ready for use!

Returning the item is also frustrating, given you lose half the value of your order on shipping. Overall, very frustrating and upsetting experience, although I really wanted it to work...
This mortar and pestle are quite heavy (made of granite) and the size 6 inches absolutely right.
I followed Jamie Oliver's super easy and authentic recipe and it worked like a charm! Delicious on pasta, on fish
on grilled chicken or steaks, etc.
It does need a little bit of preparation though, prior to using the first time. I didn't bother with some of the lenghty seasoning suggested on the Net. Just a good scrub with a stiff brush under running water and then dry and one more time. Then I used uncooked rice and salt and pounded that until it came to almost a powder. It is hard work!! Then rinsed and scrubbed it one last time and voilà.
I will also use it to make garam masala and God knows what other nice mixture of herbs or spices.
If you are from southeast Asia and live in western country, this one is a life saver!
And for the price? Can't be beaten for the quality I'm looking for!

Overall, it comes a recommended addition to any kitchen.
Box was in tact as well as the bubble wrap around box so guess any hard drop or knock caused the breakage. Amazon replaced quickly but now weary the granite choice was maybe not my best.
Also, surprised this JO set did not come with some instructions, guidance on cleaning products to use, usage tips etc.
Have only used it once and hoping I can avoid accidently knocking the mortar for a good while because I think that's all it would take to crack and break.. Good value on sale but full price, nope!
Sadly John Lewis no longer stock it. but thankfully they do on Amazon, I have purchased two more one for a friend and one for my mother for a Christmas gift.
Hopefully they'll love it as much as I do.
Delivery was super fast, it took less than a week.
nice deep bowl so you don't end up scattering stuff all over the place.
however, don't buy it if you need to move around with often, it as it's REALLY heavy!
make sure you don't leave the pestle on the table where it can roll onto the floor...yep, that's how I broke my last one!
The stone just looks beautiful and feels amazing. It grinds anything up superbly and because of it's quality will last forever.
It's far better than any pestle & mortar I ever had before!
Has used it to grind so many things with good outcome.
This products met my expectations.
