There is no better way to grind herbs and spices than with a mortar. It may be that an electric food processor is easier but those extra minutes with the mortar will pay very well with the flavors you will get from pounding and crushing, more effectively releasing oils and flavors (instead with a food processor, you tend to cut ingredients). Also, mortar & pestle is easier to clean, less noice, no assembly and you can tone your biceps, especially if you cook a lot!



Trasto is the first in Panama to manufacture and bring back to the market these traditional tool. The design consists of only intervening the piece in two points. At the top to create the mortar pit and below to flatten the base to create a stable surface. The rest of the piece is preserved as it is in nature. From the river to your hands. They are carefully selected, looking for the best forms that nature offers.
