I had to use the shaker again today, for the first time in a few months. It stood there on the shelf, looking nice and ready so I pushed my memories of splatter and spilled powder away, threw it in my bag and got on with my day. Unfortunately, using it (and I'm typing about the 3rd generation shaker with the 3rd generation scoop here) is still much more frustrating than my reference (the-artist-formerly-known-as-))Joylent shakers.
I spill powder because the opening is too narrow.
The twisty little cap gunks up with powder both inside the unnecessary hole in the middle as well as around the treads.
And some splatter when I first open the bottle after shaking is the norm.
I can take extra care to minimize spill, I can have paper handy for wiping off the cap and catching splatter, and I'm sure there are tricks I could learn to minimize the problems.
But I'm here to make a quick meal and think about other things. This shaker actively gets in the way and lessens my enjoyment.
But hey, it looks nice. And … uh … it doesn't leak.
Whew, guess I needed to vent …
