Designed by Robert Welch in 1984, this pestle and mortar has a unique design. The mortar has a built in holder for the pestle, which doubles as a spout to pour out the dry or wet ingredients.
This large mortar is a generous size, ideal for grinding dried herbs, toasted spices and seaonings to create a rub or spice mix, or for breaking down fresh ingredients such as lemongrass, nuts, herbs, ginger, garlic or chillis to make curry pastes, marinades, salsas or pestos. One of the most versatile tools you can have in the kitchen.
The mortar and pestle complement the rest of the Robert Welch cast iron kitchenware range which includes various designs of trivet, kitchen roll holder, mug tree, a cookbook stand and scales.
Made from high quality cast iron with a matt black finish.

Design Story: Cast Iron
Robert Welch started working with cast iron in the early 1960s. He was approached by a Midlands firm and asked if he would prepare designs for them to cast. It wasn’t a very successful project but, as a result of his interest in the material, Robert wondered if cast iron could be used to make decorative items, such as candlesticks. The candlestick design he produced paved the way for a range which became one of the runaway successes of his career, helping him to break into new markets. His iconic cast iron designs sold internationally in large quantities, and remain very collectable.
