So I had a fantastic caipirinha at a restaurant the other day, and made it my mission to recreate the drink at home. Limes, check, rum, check, the only thing I was missing was a muddler. I've used this several times since receiving it. I used it to muddle mint, limes and sugar for mojitos and caipirinhas, and to muddle mint for a mint simple syrup. It does it's job well, and is easy to hold. I can easily see how it will be a great kitchen asset, even for making things like herbal iced tea. It is also long enough to use in a cocktail shaker or pint glass. I hand wash it and it seems to be holding up well. I was looking for something simple and inexpensive and this fits the bill nicely.

The shape of this muddler is good. It is nice and hefty, with a well textured face for muddling fruit. The first few uses confirm that it works well, fits in the hand well, etc.

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.

A muddler is essential for making drinks that use herbs like mint, or fruit slices. You use it to crush the herbs or fruit a little bit in the bottom of the glass to release the flavors. Makes a huge difference.

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.

Quality construction, works as advertised. Not dishwasher safe but takes only a couple of minutes to wash by hand. It's not great for muddling oranges and cherries for my Old Fashioned but that's just the nature of the fruits not so much a commentary on the product.

Summer was rolling around and my wife and I thought it'd be a perfect time for a mojito or a mint julep. But with how much drinks cost when you go out we're not always super excited about going out for drinks. So we wanted to make our own and we went through the cabinet and had everything we needed EXCEPT the muddler. So we jumped on Amazon to find one. This one looked pretty nice and was a reasonable price so we bought it. It works great and does exactly what it's meant to do. We love it.

I purchased this muddler to use as I am working on expanding my cocktail preparing skills. I really like it. The grooves on the bottom of the muddler are very effective for breaking up fruit in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and aren't difficult to clean. I have a flat-bottomed wooden muddler as well, and I prefer this one since it has the grooves on the bottom when I am muddling a mixture with fruit or berries. (Purists say to use a flat bottomed muddler with herbs so as as not to break them up, only to bruise them and release their flavors -- I haven't been able to notice a difference in flavor when using this one instead.) As with all my wooden kitchen tools, I clean this by hand instead of putting it in the dishwasher. The finish helps with the easy cleaning and there are no rough bits to catch on your hand.

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.

The reviews for this sold me. Several people did not like the fact that it was lacquered. Several people did not like the fact that you could not put it in the dishwasher. Problem solved. I put mine in the dishwasher for about 5 runs --- so no more lacquer! Now I rinse it by hand. Unless you are muddling feces, I'm not sure why the job of washing a muddler by hand is onerous.

What can I say? Nice stick. If I had a piece of Hickory or Oak nearby I could have carved one. But this one looks good and works perfectly.
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.
