Mortar and pestle sets have been gracing kitchens and prehistoric cooking setups for thousands of years. Often made out of tough stone, like granite, their timeless design is as functional as it is attractive. The tool is perfect for grinding your own fresh spices, crushing garlic for hummus, or whipping up a batch of guacamole—the possibilities are endless. And if you don't already own one or are in need of an upgrade, now is the perfect time.

The HiCoup Mortar and Pestle Set, one of Amazon's top-selling sets with nearly 3,200 perfect ratings, is currently on sale. This set is available in two sizes: a smaller bowl that holds 2 cups of ingredients and a larger 4-cup bowl. Both mortar and pestle sets are made out of heavy-duty granite and have polished, non-absorbent surfaces so the bowls don't take on the smells or colors of the foods pulverized inside them. The sets are also easy to clean and can be simply rinsed and air-dried.

As we mentioned, both sets are on sale thanks to a clickable coupon on the Amazon product page that instantly takes $5 off. But Food & Wine readers can take an additional 15% off the larger 4-cup set off with the code FWHICOUP15 today through Sunday.

"I'm in love," the shopper continued, "with a mortar and pestle, no less!" They added that they're sure it will "last forever" and that it's lovely enough to make a great gift.
