Rolling Mortar and Pestle

When grinding your own spices, herbs, loose leaf teas, and more, the traditional hammer and crush mortar and pestles work well, but this cool new cool new Rolling Mortar and Pestle from designer Spencer Hung makes the process much more minimalist and graceful way. Unlike the typical heavy, blunt-ended club-like pestles, this one is a solid oak wood wheel that is inspired by traditional Chinese tea grinders and the mortar is an oblong, high-sided porcelain bowl. Just place your ingredients in the mortar and roll the pestle wheel back and forth to effectively crush and grind.
