ahh..the old mass gainer vs whey debate....
this is all preference, neither is better, and use whichever fits your dietary goals/preferences best.
for many including myself, the more important thing to focus on here is --- real food.

Xmm yeah you are right. But i was thinking that whey protein may help you put more 'clean' kilos instead of mass gainer.And yy the food is the best anabolic for me too.

again - preference issue you bring up.
sure, i agree with you - i do not use 'mass gainers', have no need for them, and usually they are cheaply made with substandard ingredients etc..
imo, whey powder is the only whey to go (sea what i did they're) and you can add your own quality carbs & fats from there = cheaper AND more effective and efficient.
but for some, a pre-made gainer is the way to go they feel, as it affords them convenience in time and effort, and may also help to aid in nutrition lapses from one who is lagging on basic nutritional understanding and direction.

Both serve different purposes IMO. Bulking protein products are usually just fast digesting carbs and whey anyway, with some extra free-form amino acids, all of which is useful post workout as you need the fast carbs to spike insulin and replenish muscle glycogen. But if you are just trying to hit your macros by adding in a shake or two during the day, WPC and powdered oats will provide you with a much more sustained flow of nutrients.
By creating your own mix it allows you the flexibility to adjust to suit your goals, as the different types of whey have their own strengths, as do the different forms of carbs; same goes for casein. What's important is hitting your calorie requirement at the right macro ratio, keeping in mind that all of our bodies will react to certain foods differently; the key is finding what works for you.

I have never had a need for mass gainers. They scare me a little actually. haha! I do like to eat my calories.

With the recent advance in the availablity of powdered carbs, making your own seems so much more practical $$ & results wise.
Of course, the ease of a pre-made gainer always has it attractiveness.
