description

Wooden pestle used to press food into the funnel of a grinder (e.g. meat grinder, rotary grater, etc.).

The pestle always takes the shape of the funnel of the mill it belongs to. There are cylindrical, conical and parallelepiped-shaped pistils.

The cone-shaped pestle is distinguishable from the cone-shaped pestle of the potato mash strainer which is smaller and the mould for cardboard boxes. [MOT]
