Thanks everyone for the suggestions and links. lenarenee, those containers in her video look like what I might be interested in but I can't seem to find them in any of the links. Do you have a direct product link?
I have tried one of those condiment bottles with the snap on cap and it failed one day during a shake to mix the TD and it took a while to clean the mess so that didn't work for me. If I can't fine a flip cap bottle and agitator sold in a set then I'll look for a bottle of shampoo and get some of the nail polish balls as suggested.
Thanks again to all!

I have the bowl pictured in the OP's post and like it a lot. It does have a flat bottom, and it's non-existent skid - for my two lb. batches it works fine.

It isn't exactly the same as the pitcher in the video, but really similar

I have this one and really like it:

I'm not sure how big you need the mixing bowl to be, but I picked up some that look exactly like this from Walmart a few months ago and paid $0.88/ea for them (not sure why the Walmart website is saying $5.17/ea; maybe in-store pricing is different? They were found in the kitchen goods aisle). They work great, but I typically make small batches of soap (20-24oz oils, which fits fine in one container). Regardless, they are especially handy when separating out batter for color. If I had one complaint it's that the measurement markings have started to rub off but I suppose I shouldn't expect Le Creuset quality for $0.88.

That looks really, really perfect for soapmaking! I wish I had seen this before buying another bowl yesterday!

No I don't, and it's not easy site to search either. I'll get back to you if I find it.

Not exactly the same as in the video but these are from one of the links:
http://www.webstaurantstore.com/2927...ring-cups.html

And from her other link, there are these:
http://schoolmasters.com/science/lab...-set-of-3.html

and these (no handles on them but straight sided and a pour spout):
http://schoolmasters.com/science/lab...-set-of-5.html

and paydirt! The pitchers in the video:
