Elizabeth Karmel’s Adjustable Dry Rub Shaker applies any dry rub recipe to meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, and fruit before cooking. Getting foods grill-ready couldn’t be easier! Dry rubs are great for adding deep, rich flavor, and for tenderizing meat without puncturing its surface (which causes precious juices to escape!). The shaker’s top rotates to control the amount of rub being released, and it works for medium and coarse ground herbs and spices. The shaker’s great for grilling and barbecuing all types of food, such as steaks, pork, chicken, and fish. Apply seasonings for grilled shrimp and lobster tail for surf and turf, or for grilling vegetables. This product makes an invaluable addition to cooking accessories and grill tools for those seeking an effortless outdoor lifestyle. And mixing dry rub recipes is more economical than using packaged rubs.
The shaker couldn’t be easier to use. Simply place foods to be marinated onto a platter. Measure in dry rub ingredients. Attach and adjust the lid for desired amount being released. Shake mixture and rub into the food’s surface. Cover with plastic wrap or place into a sealable plastic bag. Release excess air and place in the refrigerator. Allow foods to rest, absorb flavors, and tenderize.
The Dry Rub Shaker’s generous 1-cup capacity shakes on plenty of flavor. When ready to cook, carry it grill side, whether you’re using an electric grill, charcoal or gas grill, barbecue smokers or campfire cooking. Add another layer of flavor to cooked foods before serving.
The lid rotates closed to eliminate messy spills. Made of stainless steel, the shaker offers a 1-cup capacity. It disassembles for thorough cleaning, and is safe for the top rack of your dishwasher.
