"Really good shaker, big enough to tackle heftier quantities and plenty of ice. Seals nicely and the top has a handy pourer spout on one edge to ease pouring. Exterior is very forgiving on fingerprints and always come out of the dishwasher nicely. Big enough to store a zester, bar knife and jigger measure in too which is handy."
Matthew - Southampton, 21st January
"It does the job perfectly. Can't fault it and for the price, certainly a good buy for any budding cocktail mixers (be it at home or in a commercial premise)."

"This was my first cocktail shaker and it was taller than I expected but it does state 26cm clearly on the product details. On the plus side you can make a decent cocktail for two people and the shaker is very good quality."

"I was very happy with the cocktail shaker, it was for a Vegas party I was having and all my friends were impressed. Looks far more expensive than what it was. Also impressed with the efficiency of its delivery."
Gaynor Harper - home, 21st March '11
"Sturdy product which does exactly what it says on the tin. My only problem is that it didn't seem to be 100% sealed the 1 and only time I've used it so far, as some liquid came out of the gap where the 2 pieces fit together. I made sure they were pushed together as much as possible, so there's really no reason it should have escaped. Will have to see if it happens again next time."
Chris C - London, 10th April '10

FRASER - WEST YORKSHIRE, 4th November '07
"Good cocktail shaker, easy to open once you've got the knack - Silly labels stuck to the shaker can dull the Stainless when eventually removed.
Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Vinn. Labels can be removed easily using alcohol. When washed, dried and polished, you'd never know the label was there!"
Vinn McGuire - Lancashire, 6th September '07
"Before i had bought this product i had never mixed a cocktail before in my life! This simple but great product got me into the art of mixology nad invent loads of my own drinks. It is an essential for anyone wanting to make cocktails to impress there friends and impress themselves! Well worth the small price tag, for me this product is priceless!"
Jack - Wathen, 20th March '07
