Wish I Had One Sooner!
on February 1, 2008
With the Caipirinha being my favorite mixed drink, I have always used a wooden pestle/muddle, and never knew the difference - until now.
This pestle/muddle is very comfortable in the hand, and the diameter is large enough that it is easy to grasp and does not slip through the hand when applying pressure to mash the fruit.
The length is very nice, at 25cm (about 10 inches). I actually purchased this and another brand as I though this would be somewhat cheap in appearance, but was happy to see it is a quality product - no need to spend the extra money on another one - this is a nice product, and will take care of all your needs.
This MIU pestle/muddle is less expensive than the Rosle Fruit Muddle / Caipirinha Pestle', and is different in the following ways:
*1/4 inch longer in length
*The green head which mashes the fruit is flat on the Rosle, whereas the head on the MIU is concave, which means it will not mash quite as easily or well, but will get the job done.
I highly recommend both this MIU and the Rosle pestle/muddle. Not only do they function well, but they look very cool when you pull them out to mix up a Caipirinha for you and your friends!
