Cocktail Kingdom’s Japanese style jigger is made of brushed stainless steel and is my default jigger of choice. I purchased one three years ago and haven’t looked back since.
Volume marks on the insides of the jigger
For the price (9.95USD at the time of writing), the construction of the jigger is top notch. With lines for different volumes etched on the internal surface, it makes measuring a breeze. To verify the accuracy, I used a pipette to measure out 15ml, 22ml, 30ml and 45ml. While not recommended for lab use, it is the perfect accompaniment to any cocktail recipe book.
The brushed stainless steel also feels good against the fingers and small scratches are not very visible. Polished stainless steel versions tend to seize up sometimes during jigger work and scratches are much more prominent.
The waist of the jigger is easy to support. Also, unlike the Gigger or the Mr Slim-style jiggers, the Cocktail Kingdom doesn’t require tiny fingers and precision equipment to clean after each shift.
Mr Slim Jigger, that chrome finish is blinggggg!
The Gigger, Perfect for martinis but terribly hard to clean
The edge has a rounded lip that helps maintain surface tension and keeps liquid from running down the side when pouring the contents into a mixing tin. This volume precision helps to ensure the accurate duplication of drinks. Plus, it’s a shame to waste alcohol.
Overall, I cannot recommend this jigger enough for any bartender. At this price range, you would be hard-pressed to find a better alternative.
