Protein Shakers & Bottles
Protein Shaker Bottles FAQS
Well, it’s a shaker for protein shakes. But to be more specific, protein shakers are special drinks containers that are designed to help you prepare and drink your protein shakes in a single device: Simply add water, add powder, shake, and drink.
The secret to protein shakers is the metal wire mixing ball inside, which shakes around, breaking up your protein powders and ensuring they are fully dissolved, creating smooth, delicious shakes every time. It's the easiest way to get quick, good results every time you make a shake, and they're easy to rinse and dry after every use.
Using a protein shaker is easy. Simply add water, or your preferred fluid such as milk or a dairy-free alternative, add your preferred measure of powder, close the shaker, making sure everything is sealed tight, and then shake for 15-30 seconds, until the powder has fully mixed. Serve in a cup, or simply drink straight from the shaker.
Protein shakers come in a wide variety of materials and colours, but they're most commonly made of plastic with a stainless steel wire mixing ball. The most popular are plastic protein shakers, which are transparent, thus allowing you to check your shakes are fully mixed before you serve.
Protein shaker bottles mainly work thanks to the wire mixing ball, which helps to break up any clumps of powder in your drink in the same way a whisk or blender would. If you consume protein shakes regularly, it's just easier to have a tool that you can grab, use, wash, and re-use throughout the day, a perfect addition to any gym bag.
As the cornerstone of any weight or resistance training regime, protein shakes are usually consumed either pre-workout or post-workout. You can even mix pre-workout formulas in protein shakers – but if you’re worried about mixing flavours, you might want to use a separate shaker for different formulas.
All protein shaker cups are very similar, but they vary depending on specific needs. If you tend to drink small portions throughout the day, consider a mini shaker. If you drink mass gainers or bulking formulas, an extra-large shaker will give you room for all that powder.
The wire mixing ball is the most important part of your shaker – which you’ll learn if you ever mix and drink a shake without it. It rattles around the cup as you shake, breaking up clumps of powder and ensuring the entire formula is evenly mixed, so you don’t get a mouthful of dry, lumpy protein shake (and trust us, you don’t want that).
If you would like to use your protein bottle as a regular water bottle, simply remove the metal ball. However, we offer a range of water bottles for your hydration needs, including our Half Gallon Water Bottle, Sports Water Bottle, and Insulated Steel Water Bottle.
All of our shakers are safe to put in the dishwasher apart from the Deluxe™ Steel Shaker Bottle, which is hand washing recommended. Our water bottles are also hand washing recommended.
You cannot go wrong with our Iconic™ Shaker Bottle, an essential piece of gym kit that supports your daily protein intake requirements. If you're seeking a more durable option, our Deluxe™ Steel Shaker Bottle is a great pick, or our Mini Iconic™ Shaker if you require something more small and compact.
The best protein shaker bottles
The original, iconic protein shaker (that’s why we named it that). As far as protein shaker cups go, this is the classic that everyone knows and loves, and our best selling shaker. It’s a decent size for regular protein shake portions, it’s got all the features you need (and none that you don’t), and it’ll never let you down. Just remember to clean it.
Stainless Steel Shaker
Our Deluxe™ shaker is for anyone who prefers a premium touch, so it’s no surprise it’s also our top rated shaker. It’s the same as our regular shakers, but made from high-quality stainless steel that’s more durable and hard-wearing. Why not use a Deluxe™ shaker for mixing and blending at home, and you can use a regular shaker for when you need to mix up some shakes on the go?
