@sammydog01 That’s why you get 4. When the first starts leaking all over inside your workout bag then pitch it and move on to the next. Basically four gimmicky meh bottles last about as long as one quality bottle. Oh, the stains and mold in your bag are a free bonus.
@uscpsycho It’s a problem if the bottle sits and the remains harden. If you fill it with water and let it run for about 10 seconds, it rinses easy. If the contents are stuck to the bottle, get a spongy bottle brush and it cleans up. I only need a napkin to wipe it clean.
I also leave the cap off so it can air out and doesn’t smell like spoiled milk (this can be eliminated by running water and dish soap).
Dang they still make these? I thought that company moved on to the metal ball kind.
Anyway FWIW, I used to use one of these many years ago and it lasted for a few years without leaking before I think I just moved on to a slimmer bottle. So that’s a good review for that… Assuming these are the same.
I also used to pack that little “snack” section with protein powder mix and fill the upper with water… I workout after work, so before workout I’d dump the powder into the water and shake. Then leave it in locker during workout, shake it again after workout (time is needed for water to get into the powder) and drink… Worked quite well, no powder lumps and I didn’t have to make my protein drink in the morning and drink it after sitting, or bring a Tupperware with powder in it.
The major downside I stopped using it for is it’s big so doesn’t fit in cup holders well. And I stopped drinking protein shakes as often too…
I think i’m feeling a bit empty! Lately I want to buy one of everything, telling myself that I can give it away for a x-mas gift or give it to our “buy nothing group” on Facebook. What the heck is going on with me, i’m losing my mind!! Who on earth would take their “no account self”, buy random items to just give away to other frugal community members? A FOOL I say, a damn FOOL!!
Btw, with everything that’s been happening, we (my entire family) already decided that we won’t be “DOING” x-mas this year! So I already know I DON’T have to shop for anyone!
I have a couple of this brand. My biggest gripe: it looks like the lid might be compatible with Blender bottles. It’s not.
Likes: cheap and effective. No leaks as of yet.
Dislikes: (all minor) Feels cheap. Ex: the cap doesn’t snap with the authority of Blender lids, making me constantly double-check before I shake. Also, in my experience, there’s always a little left in the bottle that I drip everywhere when I take it apart to clean.
If you need 4 shaker bottles, go for it. I don’t regret them other than I have two different shaker-bottle-ecosystems now.
