What is the Best Protein Shaker on the Market?

Best Protein ShakerWith so many shakers on the market it can be hard to decide which one is the best protein shaker. This all depends on what you are looking for, as protein shakers now come with a wide range of features and brands are innovating every day.

Traditionally gym enthusiasts have used cheap or free shakers as part of a deal when they buy other supplements like whey protein, pre-workout and BCAAs. In the last few years specialist brands have set up who exclusively produce protein shakers, water jugs and meal prep containers.

Some of these brands include ShakeSphere (as seen on Dragon’s Den), Alpha Bottle, Perfect Shaker and Cyclone Cup. These premium shakers have raised the bar allowing gym enthusiasts to choose from a variety of colours, materials, sizes, mixers and storage features. Here’s our guide to choosing the best protein shaker.


What to look for when purchasing the Best Protein Shaker


Protein shakers now come in a huge range of colours to match your gym kit. These include Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, Silver/Grey, White and Yellow. Click here to see our full range of shaker bottles by Colour.


Most shaker bottles are made from BPA-free, shatter-proof plastic, which is food grade approved and contains no nasty chemicals. All are dishwasher safe and some are even freezer and microwave safe. Other shakers are made from stainless steel and are seen as more durable and can keep contents cold for up to 12 hours. Click here to see our range of Stainless Steel Shakers.

Size (capacity)

Protein shaker bottles now come in a range of capacities – smaller 400-500ml shakers, like the SmartShake Slim, are easy to fit into your gym bag or car cup holder, whereas 1 litre shakers are perfect for double-size post-workout shakes. Click here to see our range of Large Capacity shakers.


Traditionally protein shakers have come with a stainless steel mixer ball to help break powders up and prevent lumpy shakers. However, these can be noisy and are easy to lose. Some shakers like Perfect Shaker have an integrated mixer wire in the rod and others use a strainer attached to the lid.

Storage Compartments

Being able to access nutrition on the go has become more important in recent years, as we rush from work to the gym. So many protein shakers now include one or multiple storage compartments for powders, pills, supplements and snacks. Click here to see our range of Shakers with Storage.
