The best protein shaker bottles were originally designed for mixing protein shakes. However, I learned with my very first shaker cup just how convenient and versatile they are for mixing all sorts of things, even in the kitchen.
If you’ve ever mixed anything that started off as a powder form in a glass, you will love using shaker bottles. Most shaker bottles come equipped with a stainless steel wire whisk ball, but some are battery operated with blades for cutting and mixing dry ingredients.
They’re all great for smoothies of any kind, mixing pancake batters, omelets, highballs, and about anything you care to mix, healthy or not.
But to tell you the truth, Protein shaker bottles have come a long way since their inception and continue to evolve as more and more people learn of their convenience and ease of use.
Today many brands have built-in compartments for carrying anything from extra protein powder to supplement pills.
Really, you can put your keys, money, notes, rocks, whatever you care to put in the added bottle compartments.
So, now you have an idea what a shaker bottle is and how handy they are for most anyone, including gym or exercise enthusiast and people who really enjoy them in the kitchen. Let’s take a look at a few protein shaker bottle reviews.
BlenderBottle Classic Loop Top Shaker Bottle
The BlenderBottle Classic Loop Top Shaker Bottles are known worldwide because they are a great starter bottle with a greater price, and quite simply — they do a great job. I think anybody looking for a simple shaker cup that does everything it needs to do and is very easy to clean will enjoy this bottle. It does a great job and is quite economical. These shaker cups always come with the famous blender metal ball to get the best creamy texture from your drinks.
What I like about BlenderBottle
- They last for years, or until you just want a new one
- Dishwasher safe and made from BPA free plastic
- Takes falls and drops without damage
- Priced for anyone to afford
- Simple design and comes standard with the BlenderBall wire whisk
- Does the same thing more expensive shaker bottles do
- Comes in a rainbow of colors
- Wide mouth
- Screw-on lid so you needn’t worry about it coming off
- Built-in carrying loop (that’s it sticking up from the top)
So whether you are a pro athlete, or want to mix pancake mix for breakfast, this shaker will do the same job as the high-end cups. To be honest with you, it’s so inexpensive you can pick up a package of 2 or 3 for what you might spend on a more expensive shaker cup. Having several Shaker Bottles around lets you mix several shakes or smoothies in the same day in different bottles. *That can keep you from worrying with washing your cup after each use throughout a day when you’re drinking several shakes a day, right?
The BlenderBottle is perfect for you to mix any of your supplements and priced for anyone to afford. If you have a family you will love all the different colors and sizes to fit the needs of each family member and keep them separate.
Umoro Shaker Bottle
Umoro One Multifunctional Shaker Bottle truly multifunctional and is one of the most diverse shaker cups on the market. It’s different than most shaker cups that use a screw-on compartment for protein powder in that Umoro utilizes a simple one-button system. Since this is design for protein shaker cups is different than most, it makes a great gift item for someone you know who could use a great protein shaker cup.
Umoro has a very simple and sleek, clear design, along with measurements on the side to let you know the amount of liquid in it. (I had to choose between the image with the measurement line and showing you the unique shaker ball. Click the image and see the measurement line) The Umoro One shaker bottle also has 9 vibrant colors to choose from. Personally, I like colored bottles merely because they’re easier to spot when I’m looking for it?
This shaker cup eliminates the need to carry a water bottle around as well. You’re able to keep refilling it with water as needed, and then just push a simple button when it’s time to work out and access your protein powder.
What I like about Umoro Shaker Bottles
- 20oz cup
- Convenient push-button storage on top
- I use mine for a handy water bottle all day, and then easily transfer the protein powder from the storage compartment with a push of a button
- You can carry anything from supplements to baby formula in the storage compartment
- The shaker ball does an excellent job of mixing dry ingredients with liquids
- BPA free and odor resistant
- Great for working out or looks good on my desk
- 30-day warranty against leaks or damage
The Umoro One Protein Shaker Bottle is a very cool and unique design for a shaker cup, and besides just catching everyone’s eye when you use it, you’ll find that it’s much more functional than its competitors.

The Promixx 2 Vortex Mixer is hands down the most efficient, easy to use, and easy to clean protein mixer cup on the market today. They’ve never let it stand still when it comes to listening to ways to improve it, and it has long been a favorite of athletes around the globe.
BlenderBottle SportMixer Tritan Grip Protein Shaker
This SportMixer Tritan Grip Shaker Bottle is one of my favorites and one of the best protein shakers on this list. (The SportMixer comes in many colors other than the black in the image) Featuring the BlenderBall surgical grade stainless steel wire whisk and made from stain and odor resistant material makes it a favorite everywhere.
This shaker makes a great water bottle or any other beverage you have in mind. I love the hinged stay-open flip cap that makes it easier to drink my protein shakes and beverages from. And I never need to worry about it leaking in my gym bag or wherever I happen to stash it.
The distinctive snap-down cap makes leap proof in any situation. The SportMixer is made from medical grade plastic to keep it from staining and retaining odors from days gone by, which is a great asset for me. It’s easy for me to clean, and I love that about this shaker bottle.
What I like about this shaker bottle
- Like all BlenderBottles, the BlenderBall mixes quickly and thoroughly
- Easy carry SportLoop
- Rubberized SportGrip makes it easy to grip without slipping out of my hand while running or anywhere else
- Stay open FLIP cap
- Screw on lid
- Large drink spout
- Narrow design fits in bicycle water carriers
- Rinses out and washes really easy
I wasn’t sure if I would like this bottle as much as I did the rather plain original BlenderBottles I’ve always thrown in my favorite gym bag, but as it turns out this is is one of my favorite shaker bottles.
I really enjoy the sleek design and the made on grip to keep it firmly in my hand at all times. I like the ounce measurements on the side, but beware that it can be difficult to see the marks on the black bottle. And that’s my only complaint about the black SportMixer Shaker Bottle.
Hydra Cup – Dual Threat Shaker Bottle
How about this Hydra Cup Dual Shaker Cup? This cup can really come in handy to pre-mix both your pre-workout and post-workout recovery supplements.
Carry two drinks at one time, take your favorite protein supplement in one side and water in the other side. This Hydra Cup is quite the versatile protein shaker cup.
This shaker is 100% made and assembled in America and is top quality. Two different color lids so there’s no problem with which drink is in which side. Use one side to keep your keys, money, cards, snacks, etc., and drink from the other side because they are two completely different compartments. I also love the fact that you can remove one of the flip caps and use it for a protein scooper when I lose touch with the original.
Hydra cup was originally created for the purpose of taking pre and post workout drinks in the same shaker bottle, but it didn’t take people long to realize how useful that second side is for taking a variety of things along for the ride. Between the two sides, it’s a pretty large capacity cup with a total 28 ounces.
What I like about the Hydra Cup
- It’s hard to beat 2 shaker cups built into one
- No need to carry two different shaker bottles
- I like the snap down lid
- Using the lid for scoop
- Being able to use one side as a large storage compartment
Don’t expect to see a wire mesh mixer ball with this protein shaker. Instead, it has a plastic mesh screen in the top portion of the cup that you shake the mixture through. The Hydra Cup is quite durable, easy to take apart to get into, has two separate containers built into one cup, and has measurement marks on it.
