But after a few uses you start to notice something: it stinks.
Here's why: it's made out of wood, and turned on a lath, with the wood grain oriented parallel to the long axis of the device. Which means that the end grain is at the muddler end of the handle. At first this isn't a problem, but once the finish wears a bit, the liquids and juices start to get drawn into the end by capillary action, and will remain there even when you was it carefully.
And then they will start to go rancid and stink.
Do yourself a favor: get a muddler where the surface that touches the fruit, is made of silicone, or plastic or stainless steel or something that doesn't absorb the juices.
I already own the metal MIU Muddler, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VWH9RE/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1, but wanted another that wasn't so heavy. I also like the natural feel of wood utensils. This was perfect for what I was looking for. I also didn't like the feeling with the heavy metal muddler that I might shatter the glass. On the other hand, the heavy metal muddler has also been useful for cracking nuts and smashing ice, wielding it like a club, and might serve for home defense in a pinch.
The muddler is made of a hard, smooth wood, with a good polish. I picked this because it was highly ranked, and I think the reviews called it right.
Deducted one star because it feels lacquered. I'd rather have something completely natural.
This is inexpensive and works very well. It's the item I reach for when making my cocktails. I would recommend it to a friend.
It is useful for many things but around our cabin it is primarily used to muddle lime, sugar and mint leaves at the bottom of a glass as we begin a refreshing Mojita!!
Some people might use it for potatoes I guess.

Mis-placed my old muddler at work (I am a bartender). Made some fantastic strawberry-mint martini's with this muddler. Love the longer length...saves the knuckles!Published 1 month ago by Wanderlust
Great! But very dry wood. So dry that it began to crack after sitting for a month or two.Published 2 months ago by J Dunlap
