Shaker experts - talk to me
I need a good shaker to mix my drinks and shakes in. Definitely let me know if you got it freebee or a good price somewhere. Here are some of the things that I think would help me. Hopefully I can get as many of these as I can.
a fluid indicator of ounces or ml on the side in increments
screw top that will stay on
will it fit in car cupholders
a pop up or sports dispenser or whatever type works best for travel
one big enough to hold 32 oz. or fraction thereof
one that is dishwasher safe and writing wont rub off
can put boiling water in it (not super important but can be useful)

i think this meets most of your requirements ... best money I've spent on a shaker
I have 3 of them ... 1 for shakes at the office, 1 for cooking (eggs 'n such), and 1 for shakes at the gym

don't hate me for suggesting this.. but I saw one that looked pretty neat at GNC.. it's sort of like a blender bottle, but it has a small whisk-ball instead of a blendy thingy.

I just ordered one can't wait to try it out. My current shaker bottle needs to retire, it will be a sad goodbye.

I had one a while back, the lid cracked on me though. i don't know if it was from the heat in the dishwasher, or always cranking down too hard (paranoid about leaks due to experiences w/ past shakers) or both.

cranking down too hard, I had that happen this week. not too bad really tho, it still was 6 months old

i really think i need to put an order for some blender bottles in my next nutra order....lol even though they keep sending me free shakers that work pretty good

I use a sad little walmart shaker. I'm still holding out for that glorious nutra freebie everyone talks about. Just imagine the day I open my order, and theres a free shaker in there - it'll be magical!

Blender Bottles are the best thing that happened to my protein shakes. Screw forks/spoons and glasses! Speaking of BBs, I need to order a few from Nutra in a couple days

I've been using ProSource brand shaker bottles. They have held up better than their GNC counterparts. The rubber o-ring on the GNC ones always comes out and gets lost... there goes your water tight seal.
I haven't used a blender bottle. Sounds interesting.

I LOVE my blender bottle. I also like the old "turbo shaker". It has "fins" molded into the bottom and into the lid of the shaker. It works well, lasts forever, and doesn't leak. It isn't as convenient or good as the blender bottle though. I hate the ones with the little grid that goes between the cup and the lid.

Heck for 20 bucks you can go to Walmart and buy the mini blender. That thing is the best. It goes every where with me

Star Chem Labs has the best shaker.
*screw on lid
*holds 30 oz
*and fits in car cup holders!

Another vote for the Blender Bottle!BY FAR, the best that i;ve used in regards to getting a "No Clump" shake. I have had multiple and will always use them as opposed to the old-fashioned GNC shakers. I keep 1 at the office, one at home, and have i carry with me...
(i know i know.. a bit overkill! But we've all had it where we went to get a shake and didnt have a shaker. I dont care how "instantized" these whey protein are... a fork and water dont cut it!)

How heavy is the 'ball'? I'm having trouble understanding how this type of agitator mixes more efficiently than a finned and/or mesh, firm (fixed position) agitator. I would think forcing the liquid through the rigid agitator would mix better than letting this ball just 'go with the flow'.
02-20-2008, 08:57 PM
its not very heavy, but it works. really maybe would work a hair better as the combo, both a grid and the ball. but shake this vigorously and it does a nice job

lol ive got a huggge stash of free shakers i have got ftom NP Im def gonna have to order THE BLENDER BOTTLE!

I've had nothing but horrible experiences with shakers in the past. I've gotten mine from GNC and Walmart. Need less to say, right?
I hear nothing but how amazing these Blender Bottles are. I must get one.

I hav used about all the bottles possivble. I have a bottle that holds 32 oz and marked for measurement from wal- mart. clear with a maroon lid by tupaware. It works well and i have had it forever.
