“Take care - dangerous!”

Written on: 22/02/2013

This had been working well now for quite some time until today when crushing some peppercorns. It broke - the bottom fell off the heavy ball flew out and busted a dish in the sink. Absolutely your worst nightmare. This is dangerous and I would not recommend it to anyone. Buy a mortar and pestle - much safer. Funny now but not at the time… Read Full Review

“Seemed like a nice idea but - LEAKS”

Written on: 20/11/2012

It has leaked at the seal from the first day I used it. It just would not tighten up enough to keep the oil in. It now has a crack top to bottom round the base so leaks so badly it can't be used. Fortunately it was a present so I'm not out of pocket. I certainly wouldn't have another. Screw top jam jar and pestle and mortar more than covers anything the shaker is suppose to do… Read Full Review

“Lugs break-off easily”

Written on: 15/09/2011 by PhilBoz (1 review written)

The flavour shaker is a great idea let down by poor design of the screw attachment. If Jamie Oliver ever used one it was just the once, then it broke and he threw it away. I made stuffed squash (Minced beef in a rich sauce piled into a 'spacecraft' squash with the seeds removed. Make the filling (mince, onion, crushed pepper, salt, cumin, 'Apache' chili, etc)- cook 30 mins. Microwave the squash for 5 mins. Assemble, into the oven for an hour with garlic and rosemary. Wonderful). My wife found a… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/03/2008

I think the point behind the product was to mix pre -ground ingredients with lighter fresh ingredients i.e. coriander etc ...which is a valid point...use a pestel and mortar and you're fingers! Preferably at separate stages… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/05/2009 by Goode (2 reviews written)

Now on my second Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker which has been used only 5 times before the plastic has broken away from where it screws together. Returned the 1st shaker which was replaced, but the 2nd one, they are not interested in and told me to throw it away. In times of poor economic times, this is not good enough!… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2009 by wellsfargo (1 review written)

I liked the Jamie Oliver Flavourshaker and it makes my food taste better than usual. I have never used a mortar and pestle and this is a great way to start making your food taste better by using fresh ingredients. Jamis is all for making everybody a good cook so i would say it is not meant for experienced cooks but for beginners wanting to improve. I am not so sure if it is value for money as it is not cheap but the ball has to be hard and plastic good quality. It appears that it is good… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/02/2008 by bwdesign (1 review written)

Very disappointing. I don't find it a very useful gadget. Broke apart first time using it, what a mess, doesn't grind seeds, too small, doesn't replace a pestle and mortar. I can't believe Jamie endorses this… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/01/2008

Mixes real well, works perfect for a bachelor thats new to cooking. like it. Might glue the o-ring in place but it works pretty well, fun too. the o-ring that seals the liquid in the shaker falls out. You must make sure its in place right before you close it, it likes to jump out, i also tried to crush 3 cloves of garlic at once and it wouldn't do it... i guess it didn't leave enough room for the ball to move enough… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2006 by lcjohnny (22 reviews written)

Overall, it does not do absolutely everything it says on the tin (or box), but it does make small (2 or 3 people) quantities of dressing very quickly and very cleanly.

I will keep this gadget, but I have also kept my mortar & pestle!… Read Full Review
