Mortar Set Granicium®
The Hand Mortar as a set together with two spice dishes. Pepper, sea salt, curry, chilli and many other herbs and spices can be served up to your guests in these decorative bowls. Everybody at the table can create their own blend of herbs and spices with the Hand Mortar. The elements stand on a wooden tray made from solid oak with indentations for stability. The Mortar Set is both practical and decorative.
Enjoy the full aroma
Herbs and spices freshly crushed in a mortar in are particularly aromatic and loved by cooks and foodies. Unlike grinding, crushing herbs and spices in a mortar squeezes the essential oils out of the flavour components. Even if it has not yet been scientifically proven, we are convinced that crushed tastes better than ground!
Our Hand Mortar is the perfect tool for preparing your own freshly crushed herbs and spices for cooking, refining and seasoning.
You don’t need to be a weightlifter to use our mortar. The DENK Hand Mortar also fits perfectly into women’s smaller hands, but can still crush even the hardest spices easily. Just clean the mortar in the dishwasher after use.
The mortar as nutcracker
The DENK Hand Mortar can be used for more than just herbs and spices.
Just pop a nut in it and a hearty crack with the pestle is all you need to crack the shell. The remains of the shell stay in the mortar instead of flying all over the place. It is a clean and simple way to crack even the toughest nuts.
Granicium® - Ceramic made from natural granite
The natural composition of the granite gives Granicium® its crystalline microstructure, whose surface is excellent for crushing spices.
Granicium® is flavour-neutral and, as a natural ceramic, can be safely used for foods.
The material is also extremely robust and dishwasher-safe. It is a particularly durable and low-maintenance product.
