I recently had the chance to try out a Shakesphere which is a shaker with a difference.
The difference is that the inside of the shakesphere is round, so no tight corners for your powder to get trapped in, and we all know how annoying it is to get a load of unmixed protein powder stuck in the bottom of your shaker.
The first thing I noticed was the finish. It has a slightly rubbery feeling to it which gives it a nice matte finish, there are also Frosted and Gloss versions available.

You would think that there is very little improvement that could be made to a basic shaker but Shakesphere has managed no only to fix some of the annoying problems you get with normal shakers but do it with a bit of added style.
