Quick Guide: How to Choose the Best Protein Shaker?
Manual or Battery Operated?
We think the best shaker bottle for protein is a manual bottle. But the opinion is split. Many athletes like the batter operated blender. Well OK, we will tell you why we like manual shakers.
‘Cuz the battery never runs out on a manually operated shaker-that’s why!
You have enough on your mind on the way to the gym, do you really want to stress about whether or not your protein shaker cup is charged?
Well, if you like the battery operated models; we reviewed several, so keep reading.
OK, always check out the size.
The best shaker bottle for protein is one that is the right size for your preferred protein drink. Preferably it holds several more ounces than your drink size, because you need room for the powder, and room for the shaky-shaky mixing part.
Don’t do this:
DON’T Buy a 17 ounce shaker for a 16 oz drink. You will have powder everywhere, or clumps because the shaker could not mix because there was not enough shake margin in the cup.
Alright, the truth is this:
A really wide cup won’t fit in your cars cup holder. If that is important to you, get a slim cup.
We will say this:
A wider cup is more stable and less likely to tip. If that is important, go for a cup with a wider base.
Look for cups that are BPA free and made from material that will not break. If a shaker has metal pats, they MUST be stainless steel. Medical grade silicone seals are nice, as are rubberized grips on the shaker.
So, without further ado, let’s get into the reviews.
