come with me to the dark side.
I've got maybe a dozen. my wife says i have a problem. for sheer value, the best you can do is a Thai granite m-p ... works as well as provencal marble and i've got a big one that cost less than $30. If you want fancy, the ceramic ones from mason and cash are very good, if pricey. i've also got a couple of japanese ones and maybe a half-dozen molcajetes that are really for ornamental use only -- including one rick bayless gave me years ago with a pig in a chicago bulls uniform with michael jordan's number on it.
