The "Aroma" Stone Mortar and Pestle is the only item in the series of products designed by Eero Aarnio for Alessi that is made of stoneware, but its rounded and geometric form stays true to Aarnio's design code. The goblet-like mortar has a stable cylindrical base that can be held firmly or placed on a flat surface. The pestle features a smooth, glossy handle for a comfortable grip. The rougher, rounded end provides a large area of contact within the mortar, which is ideal for grinding spices or certain ingredients. When it's not in use, the creamy white mortar and pestle can serve as a decorative countertop object.

A very functional shape
November 14, 2016
I ordered this mortar and pestle because I liked the looks of it. I thought I certainly didn't need another mortar and pestle since I have three sets of other designs already. This purchase was motivated by aesthetics alone. However, much to my surprise, this design is far more functional than the more shallow, bowl-type mortars that I have. Really hard spices, such as cardamom, have a tendency to escape the grinding of the pestle in shallow mortars. The steep sides of this design make it far easier to efficiently grind spices. Finnish pulla bread is one of my favorite things to bake, and this mortar and pestle set is ideal in preparing the spices.
