Not sure if I'm even spelling this right, but do any of you own this tool? Just being a little bit nosy.
I'm just now getting around to buying one of these. I just bought one today. This is and old-time cook's tool that's probably been around for eons, at least maybe for centuries.
It's usually made of a very heavy marble stone material - and it consists of a tapered pole-shaped handle with the wider end in the bowl.
The bowl itself is made from the same material. It can be in a small size, medium or large. But the thing is so heavy that you can knock someone out or kill them with it!!
It is mainly used to mash up and make paste or powder from things like garlic, herbs and dry spices.
