I'm yet to find a better shaker.
on 10 April 2016
I have the black and gold version of this shaker and my other half was jealous, so I bought her this blue one. Rather than write out another review for essentially the same product, I thought I would simply copy the other review over here. So here it is:
In the last month alone, I've been through two shakers, this being my third. I've come to realise that you really do get what you pay for when it comes to drinks shakers and while not breaking the bank at less than 8 quid this isn't a cheap, no frill, Sports Direct shaker. However, those extra couple of coins really do translate into a much higher quality product.
The small, 600ml main shaker is big enough for anyone do dissolve their powders into (if you need more than that, then you're taking too much or are far too large a person for me to say that too face to face). The lid seals onto the shaker very will indeed, with everything being a nice tight fit and nothing leaking at all when shaken vigorously. I still like to place my finger over the cap when I shake though, because I don't particularly like to live dangerously. The mixing component of this shaker, like most others, consists of a plastic screen/seive that fits between the lid and the cup. However, unlike cheaper shakers whose mixing plate sits on a ridge in the cup, this on slides into a recess on the lid and is held tightly in place by its own snug fit. No more placing the mixer plate on a precarious surface while I throw powder into the cup for me! Also no more balancing the mixer plate on the inside of the upturned lid.
The two smaller "cups" that come packaged inside the shaker include a 4 way divider, so that one of the cups can hold 4 separate things (nuts, pills etc) separately, whilst the other can hold your powder. These cups screw onto each other and in turn on to the main shaker, making it the size of your normal, standard shaker.
Due to the size of the cup, cleaning is a breeze as you can get your entire hand right the way to the bottom and give it a good scrub.
Also included is a small, aluminium carabiner and tiny keyring style loop, allowing you to clip the shaker to the outside of your bag should you have it packed out, although I'd be surprised if you couldn't fit this thing in your bag no matter how many pairs of wet swimming shorts you've left in the bottom of it.
My only criticism is that the two smaller cups aren't water tight. Personally I have no need to carry liquid in them but it could be useful for some, I suppose.
When I eventually forget to wash this thing for a weekend and it smells like death, I'll be straight back on to Amazon ordering another one. Very impressed.
