This Japanese-style mortar has been a fundamental kitchen tool for over 400 years. The inside of the ceramic suribachi is combed to create spirals of fine, jagged grooves that efficiently mix, grind and mash ingredients.
This small bowl is the perfect size for grinding sesame seeds. Some restaurants serve Soba seiro coming with sesame seeds in this bowl and let customers grind at table. Customers can enjoy the fresh flavor from grand sesame.
