This polished shaker tin can be used with any 28 oz shaker tin, polished, powder coated, etc. This 18 oz tin is a great replacement for a 16 oz pint glass combinations for Boston Shakers (for those that want “tin on tin”). Sturdy and strong, perhaps not as durable as the Barfly 18 oz Shaker tin, but great for beginners that aren’t looking to spend a lot for upgrades. The slight taper on the top allows it to fit snuggly into a 28 oz tin.
Because it’s not glass, it will not pull as much chill from your cocktail during shaking, but can definitely be colder on the hands during a 12-15 second shake. You may also see these referenced as “cheater tins”.
