Ice Shaker Review


Ice Shaker is changing the protein shake game by upgrading your traditional plastic shaker bottle. Shaker bottles are a staple in the fitness world as they provide an easy way to mix your protein into water or milk, and take it anywhere you go. Protein shakes aren’t the only thing they’re good for though — you can essentially mix anything with a shaker, including pre-workoutpost-workout and carbohydrate supplements, or you can even mix in coffee with water. This particular shaker bottle is a more modern take on your average plastic shaker bottle. Though the Ice Shaker comes in many sizes, we actually got our hands on the 26-ounce option.

The Ice Shaker Bottle is a great product for those who need to keep quiet when they’re shaking up their morning pre-workout. While traditional shaker bottles have a small metal ball that is used to break apart any powder, the Ice Shaker takes an innovative approach. The screw-in agitator (which is built to break up your powder) stays attached to the lid, preventing any clanking noises during usage, and the vacuum sealed technology allows your beverages to stay cold (or hot) for hours. If you’re looking for a shaker bottle that can keep your drink cold for the whole day, and doesn’t make a ton of noise when mixing, the Ice Shaker Bottle is a solid stainless steel option. 

Main Takeaways

  • The screw-in agitator that is meant to break up your powder attaches to the lid, and eliminates any annoying clanking sounds.
  • You can fit the Ice Shaker Bottle in most cup holders, allowing you to take it with you on-the-go.
  • Since this shaker is double vacuum sealed and made of stainless steel, your drinks should stay at your desired temperature for hours (30 hours for cold drinks and 12 hours for hot drinks).

The Ice Shaker Bottle is shaking up the game with its double vacuum seal technology. The screw-in agitator breaks up your protein powder, and doesn't allow anything solid to pass through, which also makes it ideal if you want use it to add fruit to your water.

Ice Shaker Bottle Highlights

Whether you’re mixing pre-workout before hitting the gym, protein powder after your session, or any other powder substance — the Ice Shaker Bottle can handle it all, and prevent clumps of powder from being left behind. Thanks to the stainless steel build, the Ice Shaker Bottle should last for many years, and the double wall vacuum seal can provide the proper insulation to keep your drink at your desired temperature — something a plastic shaker just isn’t capable of doing.

The markings on the inside of the bottle allow you to measure your drinks down to the exact number of fluid ounces needed. The rubber grip along the lid makes it easy to twist on or off; the pop top is easy to open and shut (but also secure enough to not leak); and the handle on top allows you to hold more than just the bottle in one hand.

You may notice on the site that there are three different sizes of the Ice Shaker Bottle — a 20-ounce, 26-ounce, and 36-ounce option. You can also transform your 26 ounce shaker into a tumbler thanks to the flex lid that allows you to insert a straw into the top; plus, you can add on a silicone boot for extra grip in your cup holder — all for additional charges, of course.

Who Should Buy the Ice Shaker Bottle

  • Anyone who wants a shaker bottle that is going to keep their drinks cold all day, and can also be used to keep their coffee hot.
  • Customers who want a shaker bottle that is made from stainless steel, and is durable enough to last a lifetime.
  • Folks who want to take their shaker bottle on the road with them will like the fact that the Ice Shaker can fit in the majority of cup holders.

Who Shouldn’t Buy the Ice Shaker Bottle

  • While this shaker bottle is designed to fit in most cup holders, if you have particularly small cup holders in your car, it may not fit. 
  • Those who want easily visible measurement markings. Since the measurement lines are on the inside of the bottle, it may be more difficult to accurately measure your liquid than it would be with a transparent bottle.
  • This is one of the more expensive shaker bottles on the market, so if you’re on a budget, you could opt for a plastic bottle to save some money.

Price

Since the Ice Shaker Bottle comes in different sizes, they are all listed at a different price. The 20-ounce bottle is the cheapest available at $30, the 26-ounce bottle is $35, while the 36-ounce Ice Shaker Bottle will cost you $45. You do have the option to customize your bottle, but that will raise the price another $10 — these customizations include the color of your choice, a personal engraving, and various clip art options to choose from. 

If you want to transform your 26-ounce bottle into a tumbler, you can purchase a flex lid that allows you to insert a straw, but this will be another $10. And if you want to buy their straw, that will cost you another $9. A silicone boot is also available for purchase. This is an $8 addition that slides onto the bottom of your bottle, and may protect the bottle from damage and keep it secure in your cup holder.

These bottles are a bit pricier compared to similar products on the market. So if this product falls out of your desired price range, you may be able to find less expensive stainless steel bottles to use.

Overall Build and Quality

The Ice Shaker Bottle is made from a durable stainless steel that can potentially last you a lifetime with good care. The outside of the bottle features a powder coating, giving it a matte finish. The lid is made from plastic and has a large handle that makes it easy to take to the gym, and a rubber grip which allows you to twist the top on and off. Arguably the best part about this product? It can keep your drinks cold for up to 30 hours, and hot for up to 12 hours. 

Features

While most plastic shaker bottles are nearly identical, the Ice Shaker Bottle stands out with its vacuum seal design. Since the agitator screws into the lid, you won’t have an annoying metal ball moving around and causing noise as you mix and drink. The handle on the lid also allows you to hold your keys or anything else in the same hand as the bottle, as opposed to only being able to hold the bottle. Another nice feature is the rubber grip on the lid that makes the bottle easy to open and close. The double vacuum seal can keep your cold drinks cold for up to 30 hours, and any hot beverage (such as coffee) hot for up to 12 hours — plus you don’t have to worry about any condensation from your drinks getting on your hands or table.

Agitator 

Unlike most shaker bottles, the Ice Shaker Bottle features an agitator that screws into the lid — this means your shaker will be much quieter when mixing your drinks. While protein powders, pre-workouts, and any other powder substance are all ideal to use with this bottle, the agitator can also be used to hold fruit in water for taste — or maybe even for making alcoholic mix drinks since it won’t allow anything solid to pass through to your mouth. 

Lid and Handle

The BPA-free lid has a rubber grip that allows it to be opened and closed with ease. Not only is the lid leak proof, but the pop top is secure and will lock into place to prevent any leaking — just make sure you hear it click before you start shaking the bottle. Since the handle is larger than your typical loop that you’ll find on most of the competitor bottles, you are safely able to hold more than just the bottle in your hand. 

Rubber Grip

In addition to the rubber that wraps around the lid for grip, you can also purchase a silicone boot that slides onto the bottom of the bottle to create more traction. This can help ensure it stays secure in your cup holder, and it may help protect the powder coat from dings and scratches. These silicone boots will cost you an additional $8.

Double Vacuum Seal

The double vacuum seal on this shaker bottle makes condensation obsolete, and prevents cold or heat from transferring outside of the bottle. This also means you won’t have wet hands, or leave sweat rings on your table (which eliminates the need for a coaster). Most importantly, the double vacuum seal allows your drinks to stay cold for 30 hours or hot for 12 hours.

Measurement Lines

Like any shaker bottle, the Ice Shaker Bottle features measurement lines for your fluids. Since this is a stainless steel bottle, the lines are located on the inside of the bottle. This can make it more difficult to accurately measure everything than it would be with a transparent plastic bottle. In our time with it, it did seem a little difficult at first, but we were able to get the hang of it. 

Product Specs

Featuring a tapered design that allows this shaker bottle to fit in most cup holders, this product’s stainless steel build makes it durable enough to last for many years. The stainless steel also shouldn’t absorb any odors like plastic shaker bottles often do. Plus, the powder coat provides a sleek matte finish, which we find to be a much more aesthetic addition to a kitchen than a plain, plastic bottle.

Stainless Steel

The stainless steel build makes this shaker one of the most durable options on the market — but that’s not all it’s good for. Nobody likes the odors that are often left behind from mixing powder supplements in a plastic shaker bottle. With the Ice Shaker Bottle, the stainless steel won’t let odors stick around — even if you were to make a martini with this shaker, the smell can simply be washed away.

Powder Coat

A great addition to this shaker bottle is that it comes powder coated, giving it a nice matte finish which may make it more resistant to scratches — and prettier to look at. You are able to pick from over 30 different color options to find the color of your choice, and you can even choose an ombre style color coating. Since the ombre is hand painted, it’s worth noting that there are no two shaker bottles that are identical. Your bottle may also vary slightly from the product image.

Tapered Design

Unlike the majority of shaker bottles, the Ice Shaker Bottle is compatible with most cup holders thanks to its tapered build. Obviously not every cup holder is the same size, but so long as your cup holders aren’t abnormally small, this shaker should be able to fit into your average sized holder. 

Washing

While the lids are dishwasher safe, the bottles themselves may not be, depending on which bottle you buy. If you have a bottle without a pattern, you can place it in the top rack of your dishwasher and dry it with low heat. However, if your bottle does feature a pattern, it’s best to hand wash it to prevent the pattern from wearing away.

Warranties

Your purchase comes with a limited lifetime warranty on any manufacturer defects. This includes anything that would break or fail from normal usage. It does not include damage or dents from being dropped, or any other form of misuse. And the lid is limited to a one-year warranty from manufacturer defects. 

Places to Buy

You can buy the Ice Shaker Bottle through the Ice Shaker website, GNC, or Amazon Marketplace. 

Company Information

You may have seen the Ice Shaker Bottle featured on Shark Tank with the Gronkowski brothers. Chris Gronkowski decided after his football days ended, he wanted to invent a shaker bottle that featured a vacuum seal and an easy pop top. With the help of his brothers, he now devotes all of his time to Ice Shaker, and is always looking for ways to upgrade his product for users. To find more information or to speak to a representative, you can give them a call from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at 817-329-6478. Or you can send an email to info@iceshaker.com.

Final Word

The Ice Shaker Bottle is a one of a kind product thanks to its patented agitator design. Not only can you easily mix your own powder, but you can also make cocktails, or simply add fruit to your water without worrying about anything solid passing through to your mouth. The double vacuum seal should keep your drinks cold for 30 hours or hot for 12 hours without condensation. The stainless steel and powder coating can keep your bottle in good condition for many years, and the lid’s rubber grip allows it to be tightly sealed or loosened with ease. Its tapered design also makes this an easily portable shaker bottle that can fit in the majority of cup holders.

While there are measuring lines inside of the bottle, they are a bit more difficult to see than the ones on a transparent plastic shaker. And though this bottle should fit in most cup holders, it’s possible that some smaller cup holders may not be able to accommodate for its size. At the end of the day, this is a high quality shaker bottle that is built to last. You can use it to mix all sorts of drinks, and the vacuum seal should help them stay at your desired temperature. The Ice Shaker is a great option for those who want a high-quality shaker bottle and aren’t afraid to drop a little extra cash to keep their drinks colder for longer.

FAQs

What is the Ice Shaker made from?

Crafted from stainless steel, this shaker bottle is built to last and could potentially be the last shaker bottle you ever need to buy.

What purpose does the agitator serve for the Ice Shaker Bottle?

Instead of a metal ball that rattles around in your plastic bottle, the agitator screws into the lid to break up your powder, and allows you to make more than just protein shakes. If you want to add ice or fruit to water, the agitator will keep the pieces from passing through. Plus, you can use it to make martinis, or any other alcoholic beverage, as well.

Is the Ice Shaker Bottle dishwasher safe?

While the lid is dishwasher safe, and the non-patterned shaker bottles are able to be washed and dried on low heat, it’s recommended that you wash the patterned bottles by hand to prevent the pattern from being worn away.
