This 28 oz. stainless steel weighted shaker is one of the more common bar tools used. Often meant to cap a smaller cheater tin, Mako™ or mixing glass, it is weighted for increased stability. We also offer this size in a wide selection of colors.
Choosing the "correct" shaker is a matter of familiarity and opinion, and you may become comfortable with any model you choose. If your interest is simply ease of operation, a 3-piece shaker may be your solution. For experienced bar workers who are looking for speed, a 2-piece system of capping a smaller tin or mixing glass is often used, as is simply using a single tin for stirring and a wire strainer while pouring. Two piece shakers are also offered as a set, and oftentimes look is equally important. If you want a bit of flair and no slip grip, you may want to see the vinyl-coated shaker. Deciding metal or plastic is something to consider when budgets and show of both professionals and home bar enthusiasts are important.
