Mortar and pestles on eBay are sold in a variety of materials. Most common are granite and porcelain.

Granite selections are often a dark gray or black color.
Other materials available include marble, wood, and steel. You can also find replacements parts for sale in each of these materials. If you need to replace just your mortar or just your pestle, these are easily found on eBay as well.Choosing the right mortar and pestle for the task
The different materials and sizes of mortar and pestles are matched for different tasks. Granite is a common material because the irregular surface material makes for an easier job grinding and crushing herbs and spices. On the other hand, the smooth surfaces of marble and porcelain work well when pounding ingredients such as garlic into a thick sauce.
A wooden mortar and pestle for sale has a smooth surface. Wood is ideal if you will be using the set for the same job repeatedly since the flavors tend to adhere to the wooden surface. Stronger materials, such as iron or steel, are useful choices for processing stronger ingredients without much extra work. Though each material is well-matched for specific tasks, any of these materials make an excellent choice for a home grinder.Unique mortar and pestles on eBay
