Blender Bottle?

Anyone know if the Blender Bottle is worth the buy? Sometimes I can't be bothered to use my Magic Bullet to mix protein shakes. I start Optifast soon as a pre-op diet and thought I could use it to mix them. They're on sale for $8.99 CAD on Amazon.

Opinions?

You can get them cheaper than that at Walmart in the health and beauty section.

$8.99 in CAD is $7.00 USD. I cannot find them for cheap than that :(

They worked fine for the Optifast shakes.

By Grabthar's hammer...what a savings.

If you're talking about the bottles with the lids and the wire whisk balls? Yes. I have them and use them daily at least. They're dishwasher safe and work very well with the protein powders I use.

In my opinion the insulated ones are worth the extra money. Buy the regular ones and add ice. I own 3 of them and use one for protein drinks, one for pre-workout, and one for at the gym. Amazon or Walmart are usually pretty cheap but I don't live in Canada

$8.99 CAD is about $7.00 USD. Unfortunately $8.99 is the cheapest I have found so far :( I will keep an eye out for the insulated ones! Thanks :)

That's not bad. If you don't overtighten the lid (like my big weightlifting rugby playing son likes to do) it will last you a long time. I'd have zero problems paying $15 for one because of that.

I have one and I like it. Mine also has a little storage compartment where I can keep some protein powder.

They work well. I never used a blender throughout this whole process. Seemed like too much work.
