Ian Fleming is Spinning in His Grave

Electric Martini MixerThe last thing I want to do in this economy is suggest that anyone should lose their job, even if they were responsible for creating something like this. So instead, whomever decided to DISCONTINUE it should get a promotion.

There’s so much wrong with this product, I don’t know where to begin.

  1. This is not "an electric martini maker for the martini lover;" a true martini lover will hate you for buying them this.
  2. I’ve never seen a "professional" use a cocktail shaker like that. 
  3. As a glutton for punishment, I decided to read the manual so you wouldn’t have to. In the "Recipes" section, it lists a Cosmo, Pomegranate-tini, Citrus-tini, Sour Apple Martini, Chocolate Martini, and 7 other abominations that should not be considered martinis before listing the Manhattan!
  4. And I can only imagine the marketing genius that suggested they include "007" in the product code to add to the coolness factor. I imagine that if someone made James Bond a martini with one of those, he would shoot them in the face.   

Just for the record, I like Waring. They make some nice products. But sometimes you just have to respect the purity of something. Like a martini.
