Deciding on the perfect shaker tin is a matter of taste and practicality, and you can become proficient with any model you choose. If your concern is simply ease of use, a 3-piece shaker may be best. For working mixers who might be looking for rapid application, a Boston shaker style system of capping a small tin or mixing glass is often used, as is preferring instead a single tin for mixing and an ice strainer to separate the ice. Two piece shakers can come as a set, and oftentimes appearance is a large consideration. If you want a bit of flair and no slip grip, you may want to check out a vinyl-coated shaker. Choosing stainless steel or plastic is a factor when purchasing limits and showmanship for both pros and beginners are key.
These shakers meet our "Flair Shaker" standards, which require an opening diameter of 91-92mm.
