BlenderBottle Review/Giveaway "Holiday Gift Guide 2011"


Hubby loves making protein shakes but getting out a blinder can be more annoying then what it is worth. We also make a lot of salad dressing, pancakes, sauces and so much more. The problem we have though, is making them. Usually I have to get a bowl, ingredients, measuring spoons or cups and also the blender or mixer. So, many things and such a huge mess to make these things. Also, all the mixing and stirring, at the end I just didn't feel like it mixed enough. So, when I was sent a few items to review for the BlenderBottle, which for me is a one of a kind item for making my life much easier in the kitchen.



Hubby and me was so excited to try the BlenderBottle, and to see how well it worked. Inside the BlenderBottle is a spring, wire like ball called the BlenderBall. It is made of surgical-grade stainless steel, and helps with all your mixing needs. All you do when preparing something in the BlenderBottle, you just simply drop the ball in with your ingredients and shake. You can shake slow or fast, swirl, also dance while you are shaking your BlenderBottle, which is what my kids did. 
The BlenderBottle is No Ordinary Bottle due to its function and style. The BlenderBottle is completely functional and effective. The BlenderBottle offers several different features like:
  • BlenderBall mixer inside
  • Secure screw-on lid
  • Wide mouth makes it easy to add ingredients
  • Large drink/pour spout
  • StayOpen flip cap won’t close on your nose
  • GripperBars make it easy to hold
  • Embossed ounce and milliliter markings
  • Easy to clean—dishwasher safe
  • 20 or 28-ounce capacity
  • Available in a variety of colors
  • Fits in most car drink holders
  • Patented
  • BPA-free
During my review I was sent three different products to review. I was sent the BlenderBottle in 28oz, BlenderBottle Recipe Book, and a sling. All of the products exceeded my expectations and couldn't imagine not having these items. 



I was really impressed with the 101 Quick & Easy BlenderBottle Recipes book priced at $12.99. First off, the recipe book was put together with really good quality. The pages was really nice, the sections of meals or food was color coded, and the recipe book was put together with a spiral ring binder. I had no idea that you could prepare so many different items in the BlenderBottle. The sections are made up of: Apps/Side Dishes, Drinks, Protein Shakes, Breakfast, Main Dishes, Salads, Dressings, Marinades/Sauces, Desserts, and a few extra things. I have tried a few recipes already and they are very tasty. I love the detailing of the recipe's. It lets you know how much of the ingredients you need, directions on how to use the BlenderBottle and the recipe. There are so very helpful tips throughout the book plus pictures. You would be surprised at how fast it is to prepare a recipe out of the book with the BlenderBottle. I love how the book and the BlenderBottle has cut down the cook time in my kitchen making life much more easier and enjoyable.

The insulated sling priced at $7.99 is a great accessory to have for your BlenderBottle. This allows you to be able to take your mixed drink or protein shake with you on the go and keep in cold. I love that the bottom of the sling has a rubber texture to it. This allows you to be able to set your BlenderBottle down without it falling over and sliding. The strap is adjustable and also has a clip. This makes it easier to get the BlenderBottle in and out of the sling. Plus, it allows it to clip it to your bike, bag, purse anything really. I also love the fact that this helps on the bottle sweat. Usually, you have water or sweat that builds up on the outside of the bottle which then gets everything wet or makes it hard to hold onto the bottle. The sling helps with that. The sling is also extremely durable by being made with Neoprene. I was also really impressed on how well and snug the sling fit onto the BlenderBottle.


With the BlenderBottle we made a few different things like pancakes, eggs, barbecue sauce, dipping sauces and so much more. All I had to do was put all the ingredients right into the BlenderBottle and shake. I love that my kids are able to help me make stuff in the BlenderBottle. I love for my kids to help me prepare food, but they do of course make messes. This helps with that, just don't help with my kids fighting on who's turn it is to shake it.


I love that there is a pour spout on top. This allows you to easily pour items out and the amount you want to come out. Also, if you don't need all of the item you made, just simply put the BlenderBottle into the refrigerator and get it back out for the next time.


I was really surprised at how well the items mixed in the BlenderBottle. In fact, I really felt like the items mixed better then what I usually am able to get them to mix. This is one of those go too items in our kitchen when it comes to having to mix something now. Plus, it has helped cut down on the mess and the time.
