A porcelain mortar is a laboratory tool used for grinding, crushing, and mixing solid substances. It is a bowl-shaped container made of porcelain, a type of ceramic material that is able to withstand high temperatures and chemical corrosion.

Porcelain is a common material for mortars due to its high resistance to chemical corrosion and its ability to withstand high temperatures. The mortar is used in conjunction with a pestle, a rod-shaped tool used for grinding and crushing substances against the interior of the mortar. Mortars are commonly used in chemistry, pharmaceuticals, and other laboratory applications where grinding, crushing, and mixing of solid substances is required.

They provide a cost-effective and convenient solution for manual grinding and mixing in laboratory settings.
