When putting together all for a more or less extensive barnecessary spirits and equipment you come inevitably on the Jigger , Do you really need one? Jigger to mix cocktails, or is it not enough to measure the amount of liquid by eye? Basically, you can of course measure all the ingredients of a cocktail by feeling. It should be kept in mind, however, that the world-famous cocktails will taste just as well as they taste with precisely matched amounts of each ingredient. An exact mixing ratio becomes more important the more different ingredients the cocktail recipe dictates. The Jigger is therefore one of the most important tools in a bar besides the shaker.

The name Jigger is the German name or translation for Jigger. Barmaids are internationally known as jiggers. The first barmaids were probably simple, small glasses with specific contents. Over time, it has evolved from today’s known barmaids with two different capacities. The unit of measurement for liquid volume in Anglo-American countries is the liquid ounce or fluid ounce, abbreviated fl.oz. A fl.oz. equals 28.4 or 29.5 ml, depending on the country. In the USA, for example, the unit of measure for jiggers is 1.5 fl.oz. and 1 fl. oz. That means that with the jigger can be measured on the larger side about 44 ml on the smaller side about 30 ml. Also commonly used are 60 ml / 30 ml jiggers.

In the other regions, the unit of measurement of the bar is indicated by ml or also by c1. The abbreviation cl stands for centiliter and is one hundredth of a liter. Typical are barmaids with 2 cl and 4 cl, so 20 and 40 ml content.

A very simple plastic jigger with 10 and 20 ml content is that Jigger from DealMux. The Barmaß is made of a clear plastic with graduation and weighs only 20 grams.

Bargains are offered in metal, glass or plastic. The cheapest Barmaße consist of a crystal-clear plastic. Plastic jiggers are quite sufficient for the first steps with their own bar. The disadvantages are that a plastic bar can not always be cleaned in de dishwasher. And if the rind is washed out by hand with a rinse sponge, the rough side of the rinse sponge can scratch the surface and the jigger quickly becomes unsightly.
Barware made of glass are significantly less sensitive than the plastic versions. Conveniently, a scale is often printed on them, on the basis of which other amounts of liquid can be measured. The bar of glass are suitable for the dishwasher. Their disadvantage is the fragility. If a bar of glass falls to the ground in the heat of battle, in most cases it will break.
The most popular and commonly used material for a bar is therefore metal, which means stainless steel. Stainless steel barmaids are dishwasher safe, virtually unbreakable and very quickly arranged. In different models, a scale for different amounts of liquid is also punched or engraved on the inside.

At LevoHome you get one of the rare glass jiggers. The Homestia’s Barrel consists of just one cup with a scale of 1 and 2 fl.oz. or 30 and 60 ml.

Simple and elegant is the Barrel made of stainless steel by Arctic. The double jigger holds on one side 30 ml and on the larger side 60 ml. The Barmaß is suitable for the dishwasher. For this jigger the manufacturer grants a warranty of 10 years.

In the 1960s and 70s, one of the very fashionable cellar bars was set up in many houses. There was also a sink in each bar to be able to clean glasses and equipment in between. Basement bars, however, have long been out of fashion. A home bar is therefore usually in the living area and has no Spülgelegenheit. If the bar appliances have to be cleaned in between at an extensive cocktail party, only the way to the kitchen remains. For some relaxation in these cases, the equipment of the bar provides with several identical devices and jiggers.
