Pestle and mortar for 11 year old

Could anyone recommend a pestle and mortar for an 11 year? Or maybe one that comes in a kit with spices to grind and recipes? I'm not even sure if something like that exists for kids!

Just get a proper one? If it is to grind properly it needs to be rough on the inside which is why marble ones are popular. To maxx is your friend....

TKMAXX sorry!

Thanks the tips! I know nothing about them.

I'd look for an adult set. I doubt you'd get a kids one that actually works.

Tkmaxx, or John Lewis or any department shop with a good kitchen bit.

At 11 they should be fine with a normal one, but would go for a wooden one rather then stone.

Amazon also have plenty of them.

James Martin spice grinder (electric).

Winner for grinding whole spices. Good work to the 11 yr old for wanting one.

I got a gorgeous one from tk maxx years ago. Never bloody used it though 😂

Yes my dd8 loves grinding things(often things she has picked outside for potions as well as spice) up in my marble type one, just get a proper one!

There's a good one in IKEA for a tenner.

DD has one from Tiger. It's been fine in the dishwasher.

Thanks all! I'll go for an adult one. Any tips on what to get him to grind in it? He is not afraid of spicy things.

Peppercorns & salt crystals, if you want everyday use from it.

Thank you, I'll start with that.
