It is of good quality but the top on the shaker is very tight a hard to get off. I'm sure it needs to tight to avoid leaks but this is really tight and both my husband and I need rubber lid helper to get it off. We hope with time and use the top will loosen up a bit. The rest of the set great and I use the tongs all the time for all kinds of the things. Cleans up nice in the dishwasher.
I bought this as a gift for my husband who is experimenting with mixed drinks. This is a great beginner set and he has been very pleased with how the pieces work. I would eventually like to purchase something sturdier for him- the jigger is not very high in quality. But no rust or anything so I am happy if he is happy.
Just got my martini set. It's beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. After looking at Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn and other places this is the best shaker for the best value because of all the bar extras that come with it. Great quality shaker too! Thanks Overstock.com
A very nice martini shaker set. It's worth it for just the martini shaker alone. The top of the shaker is actually divided into two pieces with a grate between the top cap and the rest of the top, so you can pour out your mixed drinks without the ice. As a result, the included strainer is really unnecessary, no idea why they included it. The jigger's fine, but that's usually used by amateurs or bartenders who have a stingy owner. The ice tongs work, but they're a little flimsy.

I got this set because it seemed like a great value, and I'm happy with it. The shaker weighs less than I expected, but it's still pretty sturdy and very easy to use--the lid fits properly, and the strainer feature is great. It's a nice set that serves its purpose for a good price.

So far I have only used the shaker and stirring straw, and both have done their duty. The fact that the shaker has a removable lid AND a filter nozzle at the top of the lid (a second removable covering blocks this opening while shaking) is very handy. After the first time washing there was a little rustiness, according to my boyfriend, but it wiped right off- so just be careful to dry off your stainless steel products rather then letting them sit wet, or else you may get spotting/discoloration. The packaging is kind of shoddy - no brand label, cleaning instructions, description, etc. - but it's worked fine for me so far so I can't complain. Just wish there had been a reminder of how to clean the steel.
