Product Description

Colour: Grey

Product Description

Jamie Oliver's Flavour Shaker will crush, grind, mix, puree, blend and release flavour from whole spices (including cinnamon stick and star anise), herbs, garlic, nuts, citrus rind or even lime or bay leaves. The secret of the Flavour Shaker is its little ceramic ball, which crushes, grinds, bruises and mixes the contents releasing all sorts of amazing smells and zingy flavours, while you are shaking it.


In just a few seconds you will see how easy it is to add flavour to all kinds of everyday dishes, such as meat rubs for really aromatic roasts and grills; marinades for deep down flavour; dips for tasty nibbles; oil dressing for salads, bakes or grills; fragrant sugars to finish off cakes and puddings … to name but a few tasty treats!


The Flavour Shaker is sized to give you just the right amount (you don’t need a lot) and you can pour it straight over your food. Ready to cook, ready to serve … get stuck in!

What Jamie says
The Flavour Shaker is a really fun way to add great flavour to your food. It’s quick. It's fresh. It's easy. This is going to transform your everyday meals into something fantastic—give it a go!'--Jamie Oliver

How to use

  • Step 1: Simply add your ingredients, then drop in the ceramic ball
  • Step 2: Screw the two halves together securely
  • Step 3: Give it a good shake, but look in to see how you're doing
  • Step 4: Open up and pour, scoop or run onto your food.

  • Legal Disclaimer

    If like me you enjoy cooking with freshly prepared ingredients but sometimes find it a bit of a hassle, then the Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker is the product for you. In a nut shell it is a non-electrical device that crushes and grinds herbs and whole spices. Sound familiar? Well unlike a traditional pestle and mortar the Flavour Shaker is far more user-friendly and versatile.

    At first glance the Flavour Shaker reminded me of one of those old-fashioned Russian Dolls--even to the point of splitting in 2 halves--but this kitchen tool is anything but old-fashioned with its ergonomic grip and tough polycarbonate body. Rattling around inside is a ceramic ball, the key feature of the Flavour Shaker: it is this that crushes and grinds your ingredients as you shake.

    Using fresh herbs, spices in their seed form, garlic, chilies and other unprocessed ingredients make such a difference to everyday meals and the Flavour Shaker enables them to be prepared with ease. I was particularly impressed when I tried Garlic. Using a knife results in slices, a garlic crusher purees; the Flavour Shaker produces slices, pulp and juices—perfect! Curries using prepared whole spices from seeds are spectacular compared to using pre-ground from a jar. You get a fuller flavour as more of the oils are retained. The bottom half of the Flavour Shaker (the larger end) starts the crushing and the top end processes the contents more finely.

    This product is easy to use, requires little effort, there are no spillages and you can see precisely how the contents are being processed. I salute you Jamie Oliver--the Flavour Shaker is a smart invention that fits perfectly within the surroundings of the 21st century kitchen and will intensify the tastes of the meals you cook within it.--Kate Copeland, Amazon.co.uk

    I am most disappointed with its performance. It is badly designed - can be assembled in four different orientations, so the comment about lining up the arrows is totally superfluous. Once assembled, I found that mine leaked when shaken vigourously. And boy, do you have to shake vigourously! Worse still, it is hopeless for crushing things like garlic and ginger. Might work for a few things, but does not do what it says on the tin. I think the tiny number of recipes is probably deliberate - that's all it does!

    We got given this pukka little gadget a couple of months back. It worked fine for salad dressings and marinades and was a great talking point for guests ("Twenty quid, for that?")

    After no more a couple of dozen uses the inside of the join is all chipped away where the ceramic ball hits against the thin plastic. Can't risk using it any more cos it leaks and you get plastic pieces in the mixture, so now it's just an ornament.

    The ceramic ball's still intact though if anyone needs one.

    I excitedly received a Flavour Shaker for a gift and tried the following things, with the following results:
    1. Caraway and cumin seeds. Did not crush them, in fact did not seem to even bruise them. Gave up after my arms got tired and ground them up with my mortar and pestle.
    2. Garlic. Liquidised part of it and left the rest in stringy chunks which were distributed all over the inside. Impossible to scrape out and unusable anyway. Got the mortar and pestle back out.
    3. Mixture of herbs, oil and vinegar for a dressing. Worse than useless. Did not blend flavours in any way and the ceramic ball is pointless.
    Don't buy it. It's a triumph of advertising over usefulness.

    This was bought for me for Xmas. I used it a couple of times but I was not impressed in the slightest. Frankly pestal and mortor works as well or a jam jar with a tight fitting lid.

    The two parts didn't seem to fasten together overly well either. Very expensive useless gadget that is selling on Jamie's name alone.

    Don't bother buying it - absolute naff.

    i bought one of these for my dad for christmas, first time he used it with liquid in it leaked everywhere, i tried it with the same result. its only been used a few times and one of the clips has developed a crack. can't see how this could be as a result of over tightening but overall not too impressed!

    its a shame as its a neat idea but its a shame that it doesn't seem to live up to the hype!

    == V1 ==
    Bought one for doing 1 portion marinades, crushing coriander & mustard seeds (which fly everywhere out of a pestle and mortar) and because it looked easier and quicker to clean than my pestle and mortar.

    Quick list of points

    * You have to shake it hard for things like garlic and ginger. I was fine with it but looking at some of the other reviews on the other colours, a lot of people haven't got the strength to give it the shaking needed for certain ingredients.

    * It leaked fairly heavily when I got it. I emailed the manufacturer and they sent me a new rubber washer, that stopped the leaking pretty much.

    * I only ever shook it, it never got dropped but after a few months of regular use I noticed a flaw had appeared in the plastic. This then got bigger after every use and the thing is now unusable as the base is split down the middle.

    * The spoon doesn't really fit the narrow end. You have to force the rubber spoon to bend to get stuff out of the bottom end of the item.

    * The seal falls off when you wash the item and it's on the outside of the join. Liquid collects on the inside of the join making it harder to clean. Small point you may think, but it would have been so easy to design this thing better.

    The idea is great, a heavier ball would mean less vigorous shaking was required for the harder stuff, the items build strength needs uprating anyway so could be made to cope with a heavier ball. The rest of the design is just poor and would be so easy to sort out. Then maybe I would have the product I wanted when I bought it.
    Either Jamie needs to kick William Levene up the backside or take his idea to another manufacturer for them to do a decent implementation of it.

    Having been given one of these shakers for Xmas I finally decided you give it a go. Shirt and trousers now covered in oil!!!!!

    The seal is not water tight and upon tightening slightly, 3 of the 4 bevel seals sheared off. There was no excessive tightening of the unit, just sufficient to try and stop it leaking when being shaken. I would not recommend this. Sorry Jamie as much as I like your books this is not one of your better ideas. Stick with a mini blender!

    If you're reading this review you must have been intringued also yourself... The question is: What is that? How good is it? How bad is it? Should I buy? I made the jump and spent £20 for this, probably £18 will go to Jamie Oliver, £1 for manufacturing and £1 for paying the awful lot of advertisement about it...
    Talking about the product... It's basically a portable pestle and mortar, quite light, but way faster as instead of using your hands to grind stuff into it you twist the device like a shaker and a funny little ceramic ball does the job for you, about 20 times faster than what the pestle & mortar world champion could do!
    The most basic example is: put some rock salt and pepper beans, close the shaker and... let's rock&roll for about 20 secondes. What do you get? Salt & peper mix. One word: useless. Don't waste your money for this.
    On the other hand, if you're creative about cooking, then this is for you as you'll be able to do new things very quickly and understand if you need to throw away what you've done or not... it's a bit to pestle&mortar what digital is to photography. quality is absolutely not better than before, but it's quicker, ans smaller. a book with a few (very few) recipes comes with the shaker so it gives you ideas.
    That said £20 is a lot of money for a small plastic shaker with a ceramic ball in it. At £10 it would be a must-have in everybody's kitchen but for the price they put you have to motivated!!!
    Happy cooking!
