Muddler 3640 is a large size wooden muddling stick measuring 36 cm / 14 inches in length by 4 cm / 1 1/2 inch in diameter at the working end. This wood muddler is an all-round performer and works in all glass sizes. It can also be used in a cocktail shaker or jug / pitcher. Muddler 3640 shows off elegant lines and exudes curvaceous sculptural beauty in its transition of gradual curves from top to bottom.
The handle bulb of this muddle stick will comfortably fit most hands and there is a gradual transition to a thinner neck section where the muddler can be grasped easily from the side. The thickness of the main body carries upward for well over half the total length of the muddler which gives this bartool significant weight … especially when made from some of the higher density woods.
Muddler 3640 can also be used very effectively as a kitchen tool. Spices can be ground on a cutting board or in a bowl or traditional mortar. This muddler is long enough that it can be rolled on its side for use as a makeshift rolling pin.
You can use both ends of this muddler. The flat end is great for general cocktail muddling as well as grinding jobs in the kitchen. The rounded 'handle' end is perfect for heavier mashing or squeezing into the side of a glass or shaker. Rolling on its side, Muddler 3640 is perfect for lightly 'bruising' garnish greens to release flavoursome and aromatic oils before dropping them into glasses … or arranging on top of food dishes.
Muddler 3640 is heavy enough to feel very substantial, yet can be left standing in most glasses without fear of toppling over. This is a beautiful implement with sensuous lines that will be most welcome in any cocktail bar or household.
Care for this muddler is very simple. Don't be scared to use it and wash it in the sink using normal practices ... hot water and dishwashing detergent are fine. Preferably keep it out of the dishwasher, although experience has proven that it won't kill it if the muddler ends up in there occasionally ... though the intense detergent will prematurely harm the surface and finish.
This muddler is sanded to a very smooth finish and is fully sealed with a penetrating food-neutral resin product. You do not need to oil this item as the sealing process creates an effective moisture barrier which will greatly slow down the oxidation process during the early years of its life. The muddler will last you a very long time and will age beautifully.
