Normann Copenhagen has recently expanded their Craft range, to include a mortar with pestle and rolling pin. The range designed by Danish designer Simon Legald, fuses minimalism with ergonomic design, and transforms everyday utensils into pieces you will not want to hide away in a drawer.
The entire range is made of solid oak and black or white marble. The simple, flared shapes that cut across the entire range, also discretely distinguish the Craft product family traits.
The mills, mortar with pestle and rolling pin are all traditional kitchen utensils used for active jobs in the kitchen. Therefore the utensils have to be durable. Additionally, the work is done by hand, so for me it is essential that the quality can not only be seen but also felt when holding the products. The marble and oak served this purpose perfectly.
The marble handle of the rolling pin gives it a good, solid grip when using it and the hard materials make the mortar with pestle ideal for grounding all kinds of spices. Inside of the Craft Mills are ceramic CrushGrind® grinders, which have been tested to grind salt and pepper for an equivalent of up to 200 years of normal household use without showing any notable signs of wear.
