Product Description

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.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Fun while it lasted... 19 May 2006
    Colour Name:Grey
    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.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Serious Disappointment 17 April 2006
    Colour Name:Grey
    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!

    1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this. 17 Feb 2006
    Colour Name:Grey
    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.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish, completely useless 3 Jun 2006
    By Mack
    Colour Name:Grey
    I'm not a chef- but I do enjoy to dabble at home in the culinary arts. I bought this little gadget expecting it to crush and mix spices, for tikka/indian marinades and other sauces-- comparable to a pestle and mortar.

    Unfortunately, the device is useless for this purpose. The ball is lightweight (I can't see it crushing more than biscuits; it's only really good for mixing) and the ball just kinda swings around the edges most of the time.

    The whole unit is a cheaply made rip-off. After spending 20 quid on it, I remember opening the package and thinking "is this it?!". I couldn't believe they were charging this much for essentially two pieces of plastic and a slightly heavier than ping-pong ball.

    Utter rubbish. I honestly can't see a use for it. It's been in the back of my cupboard for about 5 months; I doubt I'll ever use it again.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Naff. 30 May 2006
    By Very.
    Colour Name:Grey
    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.

    2.0 out of 5 stars good idea, badly executed! 9 Mar 2007
    Colour Name:Grey
    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!

    1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality!! 8 Feb 2007
    Colour Name:Grey
    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!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing really new, except the "cool" factor 26 Nov 2005
    Colour Name:Grey|Verified Purchase
    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!

    A great idea but for me a waste of time and effort. It requires more effort in cleaning it also. I find it easier to make a salad dressing the traditional way than to use this.
