Anyone know size of Jamie mortar and pestle?

So in the market for a granite mortar and pestle and wondering what size Jamie Oliver uses. I find his is a good size and would be great.

  1. Can't say I've seen him use a mortar and pestle on TV, but that may just be me. His flavour shaker is something of the kind, though - in case this is any use to you:

    1. M&P are measured be interior diameter, and he seems to have a 6"-7" one, in granite. The type you can find at better genuine Thai markets for less or not much over $30.

        I was looking at 2 cup 7" and 3 cup 8" and could not decide on the size. It will be for at home and not at work and thought Jamiehad the perfect size.

      2. I own it and love it. It is solid, heavy and large enough to make batches of pesto, for example. I just measured it - 5.5" inside diameter, 7" outside. It weighs 8 lb. I have other M&Ps but this one is by far my favourite. Highly recommended if you are in the market for one.

        1. I bought one at a SurLaTable a number of years ago but apparently they don't carry them anymore. But I do remember that I bought the same size as it appeared that he had on his first show. And it's the same as this one.
