NP Blender Bottle issue
I'm assuming the NP branded bottles are manufactured at the same place as the original Blender Bottle shakers?
I can't be the only one that's been having an issue.. it seems the black plastic tops are prone to seperating (cracking) just above the threads. I'm not sure if this is because they get washed in a dishwasher or what, but I'll post a couple pics later this evening as I've had two bottles do it in the last two days.

I have several Blender Bottles that are several years old that get washed in the dishwasher at least twice a week and none of the lids have cracked! Do the NP bottles have "Blender Bottle" on the bottom? All of mine...even the iSatori MORPH one I got free at the Europa Supershow has Blender Bottle and blenderbottle.com stamped on the bottom. As I said, some are 4-5 years old and never had a lid crack.

This cap was not like this at 3pm today when i put it on for my post workout shake on the way to work... it's been in my car untouched and I go out for lunch to find it with a seperating cap. It's not heat.. it's barely 70 degrees here today.

Do you wash the lids on the bottom or top rack of the dishwasher? I wash the cups on the bottom rack and the lids on the top and as I said have never had a lid crack.

I don't use a dishwasher, and I really only rinse my cups. Soap here and there

Hmmm hard to say what's going on. I've had probably 8 different blender bottles, mostly from NP over the years. They get replaced when they get lost, but I've never had a lid crack on me ever. I always hand-washed them but it says they're dishwasher safe.

FWIW I've got 2 of the original blender bottles sold by NP (the blue cap and purple cap ones branded Blender Bottle on the side of the bottle) and I've had them for about 2 years with no problem. I've had about 6 of the NP branded with black caps and have had 3 break within a year. I'm not sure if it makes a difference but it seems the old style had a smaller/thicker lid, it certainly won't fit on the newer NP bottles.
I don't mind replacing them yearly but constantly ordering $6 bottles is a hassle.. some I've only had for a few months.

My lid cracked on me too. All my blender bottles are starting to lick which really is starting to piss me off. Somebody keeps wanting to help me so they keep putting my bottles in the dish washer, SIGH*
