    I bought a two-pack of GNC bottles for $7 and today, one of the bottle's rubber seal got caught on the edge of the bottle while I screwed it on tight, causing it to break apart and mix with the shake itself. As I was drinking it, I found a long piece of white rubber that I initially thought was a worm.

    Needless to say, I'd like to stay away from GNC bottles now. What's a good shaker bottle? One that is easily cleaned by hand.

    They are great but one of mine is starting to leak already (2-3 months of use). It kind of sucks that they don't have a rubber seal like the multi-piece bulknutrition ones do.

    Do those blender bottles have the rubber gasket? I want one without it.

    I have a blender bottle that I really like, but I have two gripes.

    1) No matter what I do to it, it smells awful. This may be a problem with other shaker bottles as well.

    2) Mine is developing a huge crack in the bottom...I think I shake it too hard :rofl:
