Got this as a gift at my wedding shower. Have used it a couple times this weekend and have really enjoyed it. It cleans easily in the dishwasher and has useful recipes on the glass. A great value for the price. Would make a great wedding or house-warming gift.
[...] I loved the color, and would've bought it at full price! That was the end of the good times with this shaker, unfortunately. I've got a number of shakers, so am not a novice to shaking and straining. It never occurred to me that I should test this one before taking it along to a little party, but I should've. When I went to pour the cocktails into my vintage glasses, the liquid went EVERYWHERE! Some into the glasses, but lots somehow going at weird angles and dribbling everywhere-- not a problem with how the strainer/lid met the cup, but the strainer itself. Ridiculous! I'm taking it back, and am sad about it, as I love the color. However, to use it I'd have to ignore the strainer portion and use a cocktail strainer, and if I wanted that, I would've used a Boston shaker. And to top it off, it's not dishwasher-safe.
