Plastic Mesh from shaker replacement


#1

Lost the plastic mesh from my shaker, possible to source a replacement anywhere or would i have to buy a whole new shaker?


#2

The same shakers were in Aldi recently (obviously not Huel branded).
It’s called a Mixmaster, so have a look online. I would think that for £2-4 which is what they cost, you’ll just have to buy a new one


#3

ah thanks that for that! I’m sure i’ll just pick one of those up then


#4

The mesh in the shakers is just an Ice guard


#5

There’s some debate on that as it does a very good job of smashing up lumps when shaking it up.


#6

Yeah I’ve shaken Huel with and without the mesh and its not as good without the mesh. In fact I actually did it yesterday (unintentionally) when I forgot to put the mesh in…first time ever, must be my grandad senility, and it wasn’t as good a job.


#7

Intriguing. I’ll have to try to find mine and give it another go then


#8

So do you get good results without the mesh?


#9

Yeah! I only used the mesh for the first few days then I saw a post on here saying that it was just to block ice so I took it out and I cant say I’ve noticed much difference. There are some small lumps after about 30 seconds of (vigorous) shaking but I like them! :yum:

I prefer without the mesh. Don’t like wasting any lumps that get stuck in the grille. Tbh I don’t get that many lumps now. I bought a couple of mixer balls which are ok but dispensed with them after a short time. I find the shaker is good enough on its own, given a good brisk shake in all directions.

Interesting @bee and @JayDog I like little lumps too.

In fact I like my Huel like I like my women - with little lumpy bits and all shook up…


#12

Haha :rofl::rofl::rofl::crazy_face:


#13

It works much better with the mesh in. I shake Huel for about 10 seconds, and I don’t have lumps.


#14

The lumps are the best bits!! Why is everyone obsessed with having their Huel smoother than a…


#15

I must be too vigorous with my wrist then ???
No mesh and shake for 20 seconds … no lumps just lovely huel !!


#16

I guess it depends on what lumps people are talking about. I have small oaty bits that you can almost chew. I don’t have big powdery clumps of unshaken Huel. One I like. The other, I can imagine, I wouldn’t!


#17

PM me your address and I will send you mine - I use mixer / shaker balls instead.

Sports Direct have the same shaker for £1.50, the mesh is identical.
