Hew

Maple Mortar and Pestle

Hew hand makes each mortar + pestle from hard maple for both beauty and utility. Every mortar has a small, slanted lip to help pour its smashed contents or catch the pestle while not in use.  Each mortar + pestle is hand turned, thus each pestle will vary slightly and be truly unique. The Big Leaf Maple used to make this product is sourced locally from the Willamette Valley.

We think these mortar + pestles work best for everyday soft herbs and spices like basils, cilantros, garlic, etc. This mortar + pestles will look just as great sitting on your kitchen counter top as it will crushing up the herbs for your night's meal.

  • 3" diameter
  • 3" tall

Each mortar + pestle come pre-finished with mineral oil. Re-application of mineral oil is suggested seasonally to keep the wood looking and performing its best. Mineral oil helps prevent staining, warping and cracking. This product should be hand-washed only, and not left to sit in water. Dishwashers are not suggested for any wood product, as they can cause warping and cracking.
