This little gem is replacing our 27 yr. old cocktail glass, part of a Boston shaker set. The design of this is superb, allowing complete drink mixing with no extra shot glass, shaker or strainer. The little cap sits atop the strainer opening and it just "happens" to measure slightly over an ounce. The gasket is snug and a secure fit; it will be leak-proof (plus we've tested it).
The measurement markings are not precise, but close enough for our use. When I poured 8 oz. in via my measuring cup, it only filled to 7 1/2 oz on the glass. The shot cap contains between 1 1/4 oz. - 1 1/3 oz. But you can easily "calibrate" it to your use and tell how close to the top one ounce is.
It's the same one pint height and shape of our earlier glass, though not as heavy nor as thick (quality just isn't the same nowadays). It does fit into our old stainless steel shaker we still have, so we can still use that (although I see that going out the door soon with this top...
I was so happy with the 1st that I bought a 2nd one. We've had the1st for over a month, now, and have used it quite a bit (we're practicing our cocktail-making & testing recipes).
I used the 2nd one last night, so I can now say that there are no problems with the seal on either - I've shaken liquid in both. Obviously, you have to be sure you've pushed the lid all the way on before shaking (and hold it together while shaking). It's not hard to push on or to pull off the lid, and we've had no problem with the seal leaking or shifting - never had to touch it. The cap on the lid fits tightly, but that's what you want to avoid leaking and it's not too hard to remove with a little twist. It functions very nicely. These are the 1st shakers I've ever owned or used, and I've found them very easy to work with. (And, in fact, I chose this style over the Boston shakers because I wanted simple & easy to use.)
But the main reason I bought this shaker (twice) is because...
I was looking forward to this shaker and read the other reviews before choosing this one. I liked the idea of having recipes on the side and a glass body to see how the mixing was going. However there are two major flaws in the design of this model. Firstly, despite the rubber gasket, it leaks (a LOT) when you shake it and leaks even worse when you try to pour from it. However, when you want to remove the top, it refuses to budge. The second complaint I have is that the black writing on the glass comes off over your hands when you wash the shaker in warm or hot water. after one month, most of the writing has gone.
