MyProtein Max Blender Bottle
Advantages: Awesome blender ball
Disadvantages: none worth mentioning
I purchased this a few days ago, but also had this a few years ago, but unfortunately lost the bottle, but I cam across it here, so thought it would be a good idea to give my take on it.
The brand is Myprotein. They are a growing company, and their stock has literally increased ten fold since I started using them around six years ago. Initially they stuck mainly to protein powders with a small range of other items, now protein is just a small element. They even provide ready meals, advice on how to reach your athletic goals, and of course accessories, and this is where the Blender bottle I am reviewing comes in.
Pretty much most people who take gym seriously know how important protein is. Of course in an ideal world every meal would contain enough protein, but we don't live in an ideal world, so protein shakes allow us to quickly consume protein after workouts. For these shakes, we need a blender bottle. This allows us to put the powder in and then after the workout we simply add water, shake and then consume. Simple as that.
Initially I had a shaker bottle from Holland and Barrets which set me back £3. This had a plastic grid just below the lid which is what of course helped mix the water and the protein powder to makes sure that there are no bits. The reason I decided to change was that I saw my friend had this bottle and what I liked about it is that instead of having the plastic grid, it has a metal blender ball. This is separate and not attached to the bottle. However I find it a lot more effective at mixing the powder and the liquid. There are certain powders that I find harder to mix, and I just found it a lot more effective using this shaker than the plastic grid type.
At the end of the day this is a bottle, so although it is ideally meant for mixing the powders, it is also convenient to use as a simple water bottle, I mean it depends really on what your purpose is. I wouldn't but it for the sole purpose of just drinking water from as that would be a waste of money.
The only issue I found was that the cap on the lid is a little loose. I didn't have that problem with the first bottle, so figure I just got an unlucky one from the batch. Don't get me wrong it is very usable, but if I am shaking it very hard, I have to keep one finger over it, to make sure it doesn't become loose and there is spillage. Apart from that there are no flaws here.
In terms of price we are looking at 1.98 on the myprotein website, and this is the best and cheapest place to buy it from as they are the manufacturers. Personally I think this is a higher quality bottle than the plastic grid ones that the likes of Holland and Barrets sell, as well as being cheaper, so I have no complaints in the price department.
Overall I think this is an excellent product, and even with the minor flaw with the lid, I will award this five stars, as there is nothing else on the market as good as this for as cheap as this. Also bare in mind you don't have to just use this for protein powders, you can use it for a number of different products ranging from oats to creatine. Check out the myprotein website for more information.
Summary: Best bottle bar none
