Review: GNC Live Well Blender Cup
Looking for something to mix your sports supplements on the go? Maybe you’re just looking for a great waterbottle? Or maybe you just want to make some salad dressing for a party, either way, the GNC Live Well Blender Cup will solve your problems.
From the GNC Website:
“Congratulations. You own the best! Gourmet cooks have relied on the wire whisk for hundreds of years to blend their ingredients into a smooth and light consistency. No you can do the same with the BlenderBottle®. It’s perfect for mixing everything from creamy smooth nutrition shakes to salad dressings, marinades and fluffy omelets. It also makes a great water bottle.
Simply drop the BlenderBall® wire whisk into the BlenderBottle® along with your ingredients, screw on the lid, press down the flip top and shake. The patented BlenderBall® moves freely throughout the bottle as you shake, mixing the thickest ingredients with ease — it’s made of electropolished surgical-grade stainless steel and is designed to remain in the cup until you’ve enjoyed the contents.
The Best Mixer since the Wire Whisk.™

Well GNC makes a lot of claims about their very versatile blender cup and having used one for several weeks know I can say that the majority of their claims are true.
It is a very versatile bottle and a must-have for anybody that goes to the gym, drinks supplements, or mixes anything into a beverage with any regularity. It mixes anything from protein powder, to vegetable supplements, and yes, as GNC claims, you can use it to make a fantastically fluffy omlette.
The design on the GNC Live Well Blender Cup is simple and efficient, nothing unnecessary on the bottle, it has some nice ridges on the side to help grip when you’re hands are sweaty or the bottle is just wet. The mouth is a perfect width, allowing for big gulps without making a mess of yourself, and the seal is tight and easy to open. You can slam it down to make the seal and shake to your heart’s desire, then simply pop it open with a single thumb.
As there are very few moving parts it is an extremely durable blender cup. I’ve dropped it several times while riding on my longboard and not a crack yet.
As I have been using this product I really can’t say anything about the bottle that I don’t like, it is simple, easy to clean, effective, and durable. The only thing I could say as a negative, though I hardly blame the bottle, is that sometimes the protein shakes come out a little chunky, but the only way to get it at an ideal consistency is with an actual blender. Also, don’t try and use it with warm or hot liquids, it messes with the seal and it will spray hot liquid everywhere.
So, short of a blender, the GNC Live Well Blender Cup is a fantastic option, I mean, if it wasn’t durable, why would Hugh “The Wolveine” Jackman use one?
This is easily the best bottle you can get for under 10$.
