Is the Elevated Craft Shaker dishwasher safe?
Your shaker is top-rack dishwasher safe using normal wash settings at home. Take a look at the booklet included in the shaker for more cleaning instructions.
The Elevated Craft Shaker sounds great, but does it do well with cocktails that use egg whites?
Whiskey Sour, anyone!? The Elevated Craft Shaker works amazingly well to get that perfect foam when incorporating egg whites. When using the dry shake method, just relieve the pressure by twisting the small lid before removing the measuring top.
How does the double wall vacuum insulation in the tumbler affect dilution?
With the Elevated Craft Shaker, you still get the essential ice dilution due to the transfer of heat from the room temperature alcohol (or any liquid) to the ice, however, you will not over-dilute your cocktail on a hot day because the internal temperature of the shaker is constant. With the Elevated Craft Shaker, the ice becomes an ingredient that you can predictably dial in depending on the amount of dilution you want. For example, we use large ice for less dilution and small ice if we want more dilution. After about 15 seconds of shaking, the beverage has been chilled to its lowest point and is ready to serve!
How much liquid does the shaker hold?
The main tumbler holds 21.5 ounces of liquid. The total assembled volume of the shaker is 28 oz. When assembled, the shaker can transport pre-batched cocktails, an entire bottle of chilled wine or a 750 ml bottle of your favorite spirit.
Does the Elevated Craft Shaker work with a Hawthorne Strainer?
Yes. The opening of the shaker tumbler is similar in diameter to a normal pint glass.
How do I get the best flow using the built-in strainer?
We’ve tested dozens of strainer hole patterns and we arrived on one that allows the best flow at a 45 degree angle. Using an angled pour helps prevent that "glug glug" thing that causes a mess. When muddling berries in the shaker, we recommend pouring from the main tumbler to prevent clogging.
Will I need to replace the gaskets often?
Nope. Our gaskets are made from distillery grade silicone and they are designed to last forever. That being said, if your garbage disposal (or cat) chews one up then it might help to have a backup set which is why we sell the small gasket kit. We also offer the large gasket as a replacement when you email Support@ElevatedCraft.com . The large gasket is not currently an add-on item listed on the site because the early shakers we delivered from our Kickstarter campaign have a different gasket than the shakers sold today. When you email, we just need to confirm your shaker version to ensure you get the right part.
Is the shaker backed by a warranty?
Yes. The Elevated Craft Shaker is designed to last for decades. Long lasting and reusable consumer products have the least environmental impact, and our shaker is no different. We want this to be the last shaker you will ever need to buy and we are committed to stocking replacement parts to keep you shakin’. See our warranty policy for more details.
