Invite the gang over and let the modern, tear-drop-shaped Twist Cocktail Shaker be the life of the party. Like the rest of the beautiful Twist family, the shaker takes it design cues from the spectacularly curving facets of a helix. And because the shaker is made of thermal-retentive Nambé metal, it should be chilled before mixing up 500ml of your favorite concoction ¿ the cold will transfer to the liquid, and your bartending prowess will go a very long way. An integrated removable strainer makes this piece oh-so-easy to use ¿ often.
This stunning Twist cocktail shaker was designed for Nambé by Fred Bould, whose creations interweave his love of water, motion, and the spiraling helix shape. The twisted, sculpted sides of the shaker increase the ease of handling the shaker when moist, and beautifully flow into the pointed, cone-shaped top. Made of sand-cast metal and polished to a bright mirror finish, the shaker retains cold remarkably well and can be thoroughly chilled in a freezer before filling with martini ingredients. A thin black rubber ring is integral in the lid and in the removable strainer, to make the press fit nice and snug. With a 16-ounce capacity and height of 10 inches, the shaker comes gift-boxed and ready to impress a favorite cocktail maker.
Nambé was founded in 1951 in a village of the same name in scenic northern New Mexico. From the beginning, the company focused on hand-producing high-quality, functional items such as metal bowls and trays with great attention to timeless, modern design. Still made in the USA, Nambé's signature metal alloy is liquefied, poured into a hand-made sand cast, and the resulting piece repeatedly polished and smoothed by hand. Exceptional gifts for the most special of occasions, Nambé metal bowls and accessories are now joined by porcelain and crystal pieces, each flawlessly crafted. Nambé ware has won numerous design awards, has been shown in or recognized by nearly two dozen museums worldwide, and is part of the permanent collections of many, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. --Ann Bieri

"I've measured out the new cocktail shaker, and it's quite small. In fact it holds only about half the liquid of my present favorite shaker. While it's ideal for making one cocktail at a time, making two would be tough and three is impossible. Plus it's remarkably heavy (think carpal tunnel syndrome)."
Note too that in playing around with it before I gave it to him, I found it very hard to get the lid on and off and wondered how long the seal would last.
The weight is the same. I'm the bartender of my house so I'm ok with the weight.
The top before would not come off. I had to wiggle the top, stick the bottom in between my legs and pull. Nothing would open it. On the new one, the top comes off very smoothly now.
Nambe metal is beautiful, so the product still looks amazing sitting next to the Nambe Twist martini glasses on top of the bar.
The best tasting drinks are made in this shaker. The core of the martini shaker is a solid piece of metal. Once ice is added the frost starts to freeze the inner shell immediately. The drinks taste cold and delicious and not as watered down due to the inside of the shaker remaining cool.
