Pestle and Mortar

The Iconic Kitchen Utensils

For the perfect chef

The name, Milton Brook, part of Wade, has been synonymous with the indispensable Mortar & Pestle since the 19th century. With its characteristic unglazed finish and beech handle pestle, it is excellent for the crushing and grinding of herbs and spices in the traditional manner.

As part of the Milton Brook Kitchen Collection, we manufacture a range of pie funnels, dishes, bakeware and bowls continuing a rich tradition of high-quality pottery. Each piece, produced using the finest porcelain and expert craftsmanship, is designed specifically to enhance the flavour and presentation of your cooking.

Benefits of Ceramic

Case Studies

American Masala Mortar And Pestle

Suvir Saran, a one Michelin star Indian chef based in the USA, designed and commissioned Wade to produce a unique 'American Masala' mortar and pestle. The pestle, made entirely of ceramic, is beautifully decorated with a rich print and the mortar can be glazed in either a saffron or cardamom colour.
