Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker
Advantages: Design, Funky, Small, clever idea, works great for me .
= = = = =
The Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker was given to me as part of a Christmas gift, however looking around at prices online the prices are as follows:
*Debenhams: £8.00 (low in stock)
*Tesco: Special edition version £31.80
It is worth looking around for decent offers or sale prices, especially on auctions sites as you may be able to grab yourself a bargain.

I have the grey coloured version, but I believe it also available in red colour. The shaker has a sort of funky design and looks a lot like the shape of a Russian doll. The Shaker itself is made from plastic material, which has a grey coloured finish. The plastic material doesn't make the item look cheap, instead the design and shiny glossy finish gives the impression that it is definitely a designer item. The plastic covering encloses an inner circular ball that is made from ceramic material and sits neatly inside the shaker.

*What Is It?
The Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker can be used to mix herbs, grind spices, make purées, marinades and as well as salad dressings. It is a very handy tool indeed and a clever one at that, as I am a big fan of cooking all different kinds of dishes and this flavour shaker really makes the whole process of grinding black pepper seeds, cinnamon sticks etc so much easier.
I often like to make pastes and marinades and this also enables me to do so quickly and easily. The heavy ceramic ball inside is responsible for crushing, grinding, mixing up all the ingredients together, so you don't have work to long shaking it which is great. The rubber rigid material outside the shaker provides good grip for holding and shaking and I have never experienced it slipping out of my hands. I personally actually find it quite enjoyable shaking away my Jamie Oliver shaker!
*How to Use
To use to simply put in whatever you want mixing, grinding, or crushing into the shaker and turn to shut and then basically shake shake away! Like you were shaking maraca instruments! The shaker is not lightweight, but it is also not too heavy, as it is mostly made from plastic. The main weight of the shaker comes from the ceramic ball inside the shaker, as it needs to be heavy enough to be able to crush and mix ingredients. The results are great and I found that it always manages to work for me, mixing and grinding everything that I put in.

Cleaning is very easy and takes just a few seconds, due to its being so quick to wash by hand I have never tried washing it in the dish washer, but according to the Jamie Oliver website it is dishwasher safe as long as you follow the following instructions carefully:
'Yes the Flavour shakerTM can be washed in a dishwasher but only on the top shelf. Although the item is dishwasher safe, it is strongly recommended that the sealing ring is removed and washed by hand in warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly. Replace sealing ring after cleaning'

Overall this is a clever little kitchen tool that makes the process of making dishes so much easier and quicker because I don't have to waste time cutting things up by hand. It takes seconds to wash up and all in all helps me shake up a storm!
