Make quick work of mashing and muddling seeds, leaves and spices with this traditional Japanese mortar and pestle.

A suribachi is a sturdy Japanese mortar with an unglazed interior that features many small groves that help mash and bruise seeds, herbs, and spices more efficiently than a smooth surface. These hand combed ridges (called kushi no me) bring out subtle aromatic compounds when gently pounded with a wooden pestle, or surikogi. 

This modern example was designed in an effort to bring traditional handicrafts to modern kitchens and is beautiful enough to double as a serving vessel. Made in Japan by a company established in 1925, these vessels are created from a specific clay known for its durability and low water retention.
