Deciding on the right shaker tin is familiarity and opinion, and you will become proficient with any model you choose. If your main concern is spill-free ease of use, a three-piece shaker may suit you. For working bartenders who might be looking for quickness, a Boston shaker style system of capping a small tin or mixing glass is common, as is preferring instead a single tin for mixing and a wire strainer to separate the ice. 2-piece shakers can come as a set, and oftentimes look is equally important. If you want a little color and ease of grip, you may want to see the vinyl-coated shaker. Picking metal or plastic is another consideration when budgets and show for both pros and beginners are important factors.
These shakers meet our "Flair Shaker" standards, which require an opening diameter of 93mm.
