Bought this during the "Buy TBNN, get a free shaker bottle" promo. I'd hate to speculate why, but the bottle performs worse than the cheaper shaker bottles I've bought at Target. First, whatever "tech" attached within the lid does not come off, making cleaning a finger and soap job for the space between the plastic apparatus and the lid (count dishwashers out if gunk is stuck in there). This might allow for an incomplete clean, which leads to dirty funk if you're not thorough. Further, the lid itself leaks even after tightening the shit out of it (over a month now), and the resulting drops get into the protein compartment. Overall, bad design, would not recommend dishing any money over this.
Got this for my bday and was stoked! Love soflete! But... top stainless steel ring came off after the first few days of use. It was just weakly glued on. Also, you can’t put cool/cold water in it and use it as a water bottle with protein powder in the detachable base because the condensation will jack your powder up and make it lumpy. Need a lid or something in between the stash cup and bottle.
This is a sweet-looking bottle and it's awesome that it's stainless steel instead of the typical plastic bottles! Also like the fact that they used part of the bottle space as a container instead of using that full-size just for the bottle that you don't even need half of. I've always like this design for Shaker bottles. Bottle has a built-in shaker powder mixer thing in the lid so you don't even really need to stainless steel mixer ball that comes with it but it's a bonus feature. However as much as I like the bottles features that it has it has one downfall and it's kind of a big one it tends to leak out of the cap when mixing contents. I'm not sure why this is, it seems to have a great seal and hopefully maybe this will be fixed as the rubber gasket softens over time but for now I can only give it at 3 because of the leaking problem that I've had. But still love the bottle and this problem may only be a defect with my particular bottle and not in all of them
The lid is really hard to get on. Brute force doesn’t work. Slow and methodical doesn’t work. It requires a forceful, surgical approach that still only works about 12% of the time. I’m applying to medical school in hopes that it will increase my success rate.
Handy little shaker bottle, seems to help stuff stay cold, has an extra little cup or storage attachment on the bottom that I use to keep my ensure I for those long days at work. Plus I get to rep the brand... feel almost like a sponsored athlete minus the sponsorship and the 6 pack abs. Love it!
