I sort of want one too now, so I can feel like an awesome Wizard.
I wonder if I can properly grind my coffee beans with this so it's the equivalent of a burr grinder? If so, SOLD.

I think I win on perfectly seasoned cast iron pans though I was walking down the street and found a set of three in a box with other random junk and a big sign that said "free".Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

I loooove my mortar and pestle! Actually, I have two of them-- a big stone one for large amounts, and a small marble one that I use for just grinding salt and pepper on a daily basis. The stone one is too heavy to deal with for every day use, but I do like it better because the rough surface makes it easier to grind stuff. Sometimes the smooth surface of the marble one makes it more difficult-- I have to kind of crush up the peppercorns with the pestle before grinding it, otherwise they just roll around on the smooth surface.
