I was recently contacted by Savisto and asked if I wanted to collaborate and do a review. The company specialises in home ware and kitchen accessories, and I chose to review a mortar and pestle. I love to cook and have always wanted to experiment using a mortar and pestle, blend herbs and make my own sauces and salsas.
So when the product arrived, rather heavy but well packaged, I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. The mortar and pestle is hand-crafted from granite and it is a lovely, stylish speckle grey colour. I was rather surprised with how large it really was, but also delighted with the width as it meant I didn’t spill any ingredients out the sides when using it.
Mortars and pestles are used for crushing and blending seeds, herbs, and other foods into an ideal consistency. It is great kitchen exercise and you find yourself bashing away any frustration you have been harboring!
I decided to make a red pesto and a spicy guacamole. Using the mortar and pestle was easy, as it was so heavy it required little effort and it blended all my spices, crunchy peppercorns and garlic cloves perfectly.
Granite is non-porous which makes it a superb material to create a mortar and pestle with. It was easy to wipe clean and I could wash it with a mild soap which saved me time from doing it the old fashioned “dry cleaning” way. I noticed that after using it, there were no stains or marks inside from what I had been making and it scrubbed up well.
This mortar and pestle is great quality it is tough, durable and does the job very well! It will look wonderful on any kitchen counter and in my opinion it is a must-have kitchen accessory.
Overall I really rate this product, it is super easy to use and if you are unsure of what to make with it, I recommend having a scroll through pinterest where you will find some amazing recipes.
Savisto have a wide range of exciting products and I can’t wait to discover more.
