Title: Shaker for foaming dairy products

Abstract: Shaker for liquids, especially dairy products such as half-and-half cream and milk. In known shakers cocktails are mixed by pouring different liquids into a bowl which has then inserted thereinto a bowl-shaped sifter filled with solids such as ice, lemon slices or cocoa. Although the ingredients of the cocktail are finely mixed with one another without lumping by shaking said shaker along its longitudinal axis, it is not possible to foam the liquids. The novel shaker makes it possible to foam liquid foodstuffs, especially milk, by simply shaking the same. The shaker is designed for foaming purposes in that a separation sifter is arranged in a direction substantially transverse to the vertical axis of the shaker so that the total volume of the closed bowl is subdivided by the separation sifter in a ratio of 2:1. The shaker is particularly suited for preparing cappuccino cream.
