Zirconia Mortar and Pestle Description

Zirconia‘s high density, low porosity, inertness, toughness and super hardness make it the perfect material for making mortars and pestles.

Being approximately 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, zirconia mortar and pestles is able to grind materials too hard for agate, alumnia, and porcelain. Our high wear-resistant mortar and pestle effectively eliminates product contamination and is chemically inert to all acids.

These special features make zirconia the most versatile and best suited mortar and pestle material for sensitive biological and other critical applications requiring ultra-low contamination and acid resistence.

Superb Mortar and Pestle Set!

Great product!! Understand that you must SEASON this mortar and pestle sets before you can use it. Follow the instructions. I would add as an extra seasoning step before the rice put about a cup or two of warm water in the mortar and grind the pestle directly against it. Do the entire interior surface and make sure it is always wet. The water will cloud up and you will have a fine slurry in the bottom that will aid in seasoning. Do this for about an hour or until the interior of the mortar starts to feel smooth. Then rinse it out thoroughly and move on to Step 2 with the rice. I used about 1/4 cup and pulverized it to the consistency of flour. It took me about 10 minutes.
After the mortar and pestle are properly seasoned it will perform perfectly. Very happy with mine. Highly recommended.

Very pleasantly surprised!

I was surprised by the quality of this Zirconia Mortar and Pestle Sets. Nice, heavy weight that it won't slide around on the counter. It's beautiful. I've already heard from the manufacturer asking if it arrived in good condition and if not, they will do everything they can to make it right. They also said they would check back later to see how we like using it. I'm very impressed by the contact and the item. I would highly recommend this item to anyone.
