This mixer is made of Indian sheesham wood in round shape and accompanied with a pestle for comfortable fast cooking. Use this smasher to grind herbs and spices quickly and easily. Simply add anything from cloves to cumin seeds or peppercorns to the deep mortar bowl, then crush into a coarse or fine powder with a twisting and pressing motion of the pestle. This is perfect for grinding, pounding, and crushing spices, herbs, tough foods, grains, teas, garlics, and gingers. The grinder is not limited to just food but can also used for supplements and pills. It is a precious gift to show off something stylish and functional, reminding us of past times.
