Intrigued by the idea of “the best cocktail shaker since prohibition” I accepted an offer to try out the “Shaker 33”. The sleek-looking lightweight silver cylinder arrived, I washed all of the parts safely in my dishwasher, and was ready to try it out for a Martini! My review is below this news release:
The traditional cocktail shaker redesigned. The modern, sophisticated design of Shaker33 includes several new features that solve the woes of the classic cocktail shaker and lets users effortlessly create exquisite professional cocktails. Shaker33’s leak-proof, easy-to-open and smooth pour functions give amateurs and pros alike perfect cocktails, all the time, every time.
The design features a top that locks into place, removes easily, and eliminates spills and leaks for easy one-handed shaking. The locking dual-flow strainer has larger holes on one side for a fast pour and smaller holes on the other for a finer strain. Each shaker has a nesting top that stores the strainer, which keeps the bar clean from sticky messes. In addition, its patented design keeps condensation low – chilling just the drink and not hands.
Shaker33 is available in black, frosted and stainless steel options. Strainer colors come in cosmo red, sunset orange, sky blue and lime green. MSRP $29.95-$39.95 and available at www.Shaker33.com.
As stated in the release, yes, the two parts – the strainer and nesting top – locked into place easily and prevented any spills. My usual complaint after making a martini in a traditional metal shaker is that the parts are hard to separate. Not the case with Shaker 33. I also could shake with one hand, the top was that secure.
Another complaint is that I sometimes have to use a towel around a shaker as it gets too cold by the time I’m ready to pour, yea I’m a wimp, but in case you are not happy with holding something really cold the “patented design” did keep the “condensation low” as promised as it wasn’t very cold to the touch at all.
The only thing I missed was the shot glass that sometimes comes on top of a Martini shaker; however, this part is usually where the spills come from and where things can get a little tricky when I try to remove it later for washing. So, all in all, this is a really great Martini shaker and I hope you check it out!
