We are really happy to be reviewing the new ShakeSphere by Shakerbottle.co.uk. We love their ideas and we had been following the product since it launched on Kickstarter earlier this year.
I find when we are reviewing shakers the same ground is always covered. Little changes in the world of protein shakers… So, without further ado – The ShakeSphere, like any good protein shaker, provides a great vessel to carry and blend shakes. It doesn’t leak, it’s a good size (600ml), dishwasher and microwave safe and BPA free (see our blog Drinking Clean? for more info on the importance of using BPA-free plastics).
WHAT IS IN A NAME?
So far, so shaker. However, here is where things become more interesting. The Shaker comes with an additional pot to store supps, pills, powders (or EverPure…) which is a nice little extra to have. But the key differentiator here, and the feature that gives the shaker its cool name, is the shape of the inside of the bottle. Uniquely the bottle has a spherical internal base which allows for a better mixing of your supplements, not allowing powders to clump and be missed by the liquid, maximising those gains and minimising the stink of missed protein.
- Leak Proof
- Tinted dark plastic looks stylish but allows you to see your drink – two transparent view-panes also perfect for measuring
- Innovative Spherical Base – Pill shaped designed to provide optimum mixing, no more powder clumping!
- Easy Clean – No corners means an easier clean
- Metric and Imperial Units
- Dishwasher Safe
- Freezer Safe
- Microwave Safe
- BPA Free
The shaker is also extremely customisable, and can be paired with a multitude of different colour lids, bottles and tubs to create unique combinations.
The company also offers a range of neoprene shaker insulators which will keep your beverage either hot or cold as you desire. This is a nice extra touch, and shows that the team has really put a lot of thought into their products and their use.
@ShakeSphereHQ has a great Twitter following and post some really interesting stuff via social media. With a team made up of genuine athletes and headed by a world champion runner you would expect them to know what the #Fitfam are all about!
Our shaker was dispatched very quickly and we had good communication with the staff via twitter and email. The shaker looks cool, can be customised to match kit or team colours and will suit both sexes.
The mixing of the powder is excellent – before we tried it we were sceptical as there is no mixing grid or ball, and the shaker solely used the shape of the bottle to ensure a 99.9% mix. Our only issue came when we tried missing peanut butter into the shake. This didn’t work so well, but we did end up with a nice PB snack at the end of our drink!
It ticks all of our boxes and does exactly what it says on the tin. It mixes powders beautifully. It won’t break the bank, it’s very sturdily made and is a stylish and unique bit of kit. We are very happy to recommend ShakeSphere shakers to the gym and sporting community.
