How We Picked
The methodology we used to select our favorite shaker bottles included a lot of shaking and attention to design details. We looked for shaker bottles that were affordable, durable, and had good mixing ability. We kept a few things in mind when selecting our favorites.
- Price. With the expected high cost of supplements, we looked for shaker bottles that wouldn’t break the bank. We carefully selected products that didn’t lack quality and were affordable.
- Design. We tried out different designs on the market. Some were more advanced than others in terms of high-tech blending functions. In general we chose shaker bottles that high-tech or not had stellar mixing capabilities above all else.
- Appearance. Since a shaker bottle is typically an everyday staple item, we looked for products that were aesthetically pleasing. We opted for simple designs and products with different color and sizing options.
- Safety. In terms of safety we carefully looked at the sealing, the closing functionality, and the grip. We looked at flip-off tops and twist-off tops and paid close attention to what was the easiest and cleanest. When shaking a bottle filled with liquids having a proper seal is very important.
At BarBend, we always have a shaker bottle around the office, if not several. While a shaker bottle’s main purpose is to sufficiently mix up supplements, most of them make for a solid water bottle too. When choosing a shaker bottle we would always suggest actually shaking it. This may go without saying, but some are easier to shake than others. Also a proper cap and leak free seal is essential. Along with being secure and easy to use, we also have a few more suggestions when searching the market.
- Use. The first question we would push you to ask is what are you using this shaker bottle for? Some shaker bottles are designed with heavy protein powders and meal replacement shakes in mind. Often these bottles are equipped with high-tech blending capabilities and different removable blending options.
- Price. There is a range in pricing options for shaker bottles. The more high-tech and high-functioning the shaker bottle is, the more expensive it will be. We would suggest looking at shaker bottles with multiple capabilities that are also affordable, because there are several out there!
- Design. Shaker bottles can vary significantly in design. We’ve seen ones specifically for performance with more than one compartment (for a pre-workout drink and a post-workout shake.) There are also plenty on the market that have a simple straight structure, but there are also the ones with curvy designs and unique grips. The design of the cap/seal is very important and usually based on preference so keep an eye out for ones with flip-off tops vs. twist off.
- Capacity. Keep an eye out for how much liquid the shaker bottle can hold. A lot of the makers sell different sizes so this is something to look out for depending on your desired portion. Chances are there is a size out on the market that
