Optimum® Better than Vitamix

Performance wise, they were on the same level. If anything, the Optimum® 9400 slightly out performed the Vitamix. We were actually quite impressed

-Continue reading..

Just Amazing

Before you go out and spend a $1000 on and in my opinion a inferior blender the American Vitamix you should do yourself a favor and try the 9400 Beast you wont be disappointed especially at half the cost and twice the warranty.

-Continue reading..

And the winner is...

I spent hours each night studying YouTube videos and it came down to 2 blenders,Vitamix or Optimum®.At the end of the day the optimum® 9400 looked to be the superior machine so I purchased it!! Literally the best thing I have ever spent my money on!!

Froothie/Optimum® VS Vitamix

I personally looked at getting the nutribullet, ninja and vitamix. Buying from an Australian owned and operated company with a 10 year warranty definitely helped me make the right decision. 

-Continue reading..

Amazing machine!

I was looking at getting a Vitamix to start my journey to good health. After doing some research I stumbled upon Froothie and the Optimum® 9400. Saw the videos and specifications and decided I would bite the bullet and buy one. It is a fantastic machine! 

-Continue reading..

Love this product

Decided to pick this product after much research including Vitamix and the much cheaper Omniblend v which some claim is the same machine. So glad went with this product, a friend bought the cheaper alternative and it is not nearly as good as mine.

Optimum® user review

I have now used the blender for all the recipes I made with Vitamix. I am pleasantly surprised and unequivocally convinced the Optimum® 9400 has the same result and build quality as the Vitamix. The longer blades were also very effective for grinding, and with the additional speed the job was done quicker than my Vitamix in some cases (note I never purchased the Vitamix dry jug which could have a similar result when grinding to the Optimum®). Smoothies both had the same great texture, everything blended in seconds.

-Continue reading..

Great Value!

I had always wanted to buy a vitamix but am so glad I found the Optimum® instead. It is more powerful (my friend has one for me to compare), also easy to use and clean.

-Continue reading..

RIP the old blenders

Excellent value for the price (for something that, in my opinion, beats the Vitamix in every way), and it does the job.

My family loves the Optimum® 9400

I am so pleased with our Optimum® 9400. I researched for 2 years before choosing the the Optimum® over the American made Vitamix. There's no comparison between the two blenders. The quality surpasses all blenders of its kind.

-Continue reading..

The Optimum® 9499

I am thrilled with my Optimum® 9400, it is fast efficient and makes the worlds best smoothies. In my opinion this is the absolute best quality machine for the money, I think it is a much superior blender than the Kitchen Aid, Vitamix, Magimix and the Breville models in the same or higher price category.

-Continue reading..

Centrepiece of My Kitchen!

Sturdy, great on-par (if not better) alternative to Vitamix

Optimum® 9400 - the Life Saver

Decided to look for Vitamix and came across this. After comparing and reviewing, found the Optimum® 9400 is in par of not a little better so decided to give it a shot. Chat to them online, manage to get a small freebie and received the goods promptly. They seem to be really efficient in their customer service.Tried it and boy it works.

-Continue reading..

Best Ever Blender

I came across the froothie website and saw that it looked the same and can do all the same things, and that is has even has more impressive specifications than a Vitamix. This is a quality product that is designed to last as it actually allows you to select a 10 year warranty on it (I chose a 5yr warranty). I really love this machine and it is just so easy to clean and maintain - you just basically rinse it out and there are no hidden areas that trap food - so simple. Everything that is said about it is true.

-Continue reading..

All my questions answered!!

This blender is exactly what I was after and for an amazingly affordable price- the fabulous staff on the live chat at Froothie answered all my questions on the spot and helped me choose the best option for my home use. Relief after many hours of searching the internet and trying to compare to other brands like vitamix to no avail. I use it every day!

-Continue reading..

Optimum® 9400

Cheaper than Vitamix but no loss in ability.

-Continue reading..

Use it every day

I have been holding out for a vitamix but a friend told me to buy this one. When i received my 9400 I made my daily green smoothy as was really happy. Tasted delicious and blended smooth. I am trying to go more raw vegan so I make dips, sauces, and lots of banana ice cream. ( frozen bananas only - so yummy )

-Continue reading..

Optimum® 9400 blender is the shizz!

I needed a blender as my kenwood was not belnding the kale up finely enough for the green smoothies I like to make so I did a lot of research looking at vitamix, ninja etc etc. I finally ended up settling on this one due to the manufacture and also the price.)

-Continue reading..

What a great product!

I spent a while searching and comparing different products on the market, even considering the Vitamix and the Blentech (Both reputable brands). I luckily stumbled across a few Youtube clips and forums showcasing an Australian blender range by Froothie… Thank you Froothie, the product is simply awesome. The exceptional design, quality and power of the Optimum® 9400 at an affordable price makes it hard to beat. I can quite confidently say the blender is on par if not better than the leading blenders on the market. If anyone is looking for a great quality Australian owned blender with excellent customer service then I highly recommend the Optimum® 9400 by Froothie.

-Continue reading..

Best money I ever spent!!!

I researched the Vitamix and the Ninja Kitchen System, but then came across the Optimum® 9400 and was super impressed, it also seemed to have the best reviews so I purchased one from Froothie while it was on sale for nearly half price

-Continue reading..

FANTABULOUS!!!

If you want a blender that rivals vitamix but at a fraction of the cost....this is your answer!! Get on to it peoples, you won't regret it!!

-Continue reading..

Don't consider ANYTHING else

I am a hard working professional and was tossing up between a vitamix and one of these. It wasn't until I compared the specifications I realised that I was getting MORE for LESS. This machine works harder, is equally durable, and is quieter that your $1,000AUD + vitamix machines.

-Continue reading..

Terrific Blender!

It does everything a Vitamix can do, and more. It has become one of the most used appliances in our house, along with the kettle and the toaster!

-Continue reading..

Excellent value!

Like many others I'd had my eye on a Vitamix for a long time but couldn't justify the expense. The Optimum® fit my budget and is a great product, I couldn't be happier.

-Continue reading..

Wow that's a good blenders

The blender is about 1/2 the price of the leading brand (Vitamix) that many of my friends own and as far as I can tell is quieter and a better blender.. So less money, Australian owned and a better blender.. 

-Continue reading..

Amazing blender and service from Froothie

So I thought a Vitamix was my only option if I wanted a machine to last more than a year or two at the most. I am just over the moon with my Optimum® - not only can it blend anything that the other high powered blenders can, it does it at a realistic price, has a 10 year warranty, and the service that I received from Brian was right up there with the best I have ever received as a customer

-Continue reading..

Amazing

As I mentioned to the Froothie team I was sceptical and ready to be biased against the Optimum®, I have wanted a Vitamix for years but put off by the price.All I can say is I am delightfully and totally sold. This machine does everything it states and then some - silky smooth green smoothies, Amazing nut cheeses and raw desserts, easy nut milks, yummy nut butters

-Continue reading..

Very good

We purchased an Optimum® 9400 about 2 months ago and used it daily since. I would have preferred a Vitamix, but at double the cost it is not good value for money.

Review from the Raw Food Mum

 

As much as we love our Vitamix it is a high price point item for those starting out on a healthy journey with their families and this was my concern as I promote raw food for families.

For some families purchasing a blender over a $500 price point is just not going to happen, which means that entering the world of green smoothies and raw food can be a bit limiting.

I wanted to find a blender that I could stock in my online store that matched the Vitamix with quality and a blender that families could actually afford. I also wanted to make sure that by putting my name behind something .. that these blenders would cut it especially knowing how we use them!

 

HERE ARE FEW MORE REASONS WHY I LOVE THESE BLENDERS ….

 

Affordable
The optimum® blenders are nearly half the price point of the Vitamix with just as much power and quality – which makes it a great entry point for anyone wanting to start making raw food or smoothies that are completely blended.

 

Quality Quality Quality
The Optimum® 9400 is identical to the Optimum® 9200 - 2nd Generation, manufactured using the same high-quality durable parts.

 

Power
The Optimum® is equipped with a self-compensating energy-efficient motor which can reach a power of 2,238 Watt and a staggering speed of 44,000 rpm. It will blend your smoothie in less then 30 seconds sometimes less. You wont see little specs of kale like you do in some cheaper blenders.

Review from Choice

 

CHOICE verdict

The Vitamix and Optimum® both allow you to create endless amounts of healthy, nutritious foods. Their powerful motors allow them to handle heavy loads better than most standard blenders.  

In comparison to the blenders we’ve tested, the Vitamix is up there with the better scoring models, and would make our What to Buy list. Following the re-test of the Optimum®, it too would make our What to Buy list

Review from Health Yeah

 

I've been through a fair few blenders in my time and there have been some highs and lows. There was the shall-not-be-named Briscoes blender that catapulted smoothie all over my kitchen as I lifted the jug from the base. The blender that obliterated my spatula. The one that shimmied across the bench when it was on so you had to keep all hands on it. These blenders suited my banana berry smoothie habit just fine, but when I discovered green smoothies, plant-based and raw meals, I felt an upgrade was in order.

    Jacqui Edgecombe (String Fever Pty Ltd Croydon, VIC)

  • Hi Roy and the team at Athena Solutions, I would like to say that I have received my Optimum® and the help and support from your team has been really reassuring. The blender has truly performed well. It blends beautifully, makes great smoothies and even hot soup. I have had a Vita-mix from my daughter while deciding which blender to purchase and the Optimum® has been just as good, doing all that the Vita-mix does, so I am very happy with the result and the price is much more attractive, with the same 10 year warranty. Thanks so much
    Rosetta and Danco Ilic (Rouse Hill, NSW)

  • I would like to thank you firstly for your wonderful customer service. Right from the start you were most helpful with all information and advice I had asked for. Also I appreciate how easily contactable your company is.
    Secondly I would like to say how happy I am with the Optimum®. I was previously using a standard blender that was brand new out of the box and after one month of using it, it had blown up. I make quite a lot of smoothies and needed something more durable. After using the Optimum® for the first time I was so happy with how quick and easy it was. The smoothie's come out so smooth and creamy and taste great. It saves me time and makes it more appealing to use on a regular basis. I can whip things up in no time at all and I find myself wanting to make more. I absolutely love it and have been bragging about it since I got it.
    I'm drinking a smoothie as we speak that I whipped up this morning. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face this morning because I blended a whole bunch of stuff and it was so quick and easy which makes it so much more appealing as like everyone else, I'm so busy and time is so precious.
    My friend was also interested in purchasing a new blender, after seeing my new Optimum®, she purchased the same one the next day. Im sure anyone who purchases the Optimum® will be extremely happy as I am.
    Thank you again.
    Kind Regards
    Venesa Jovanova (Tuggeranong, ACT)

  • Dear Froothie, Thank you for organising the prompt delivery of our new Optimum® blenders. We were very impressed with your great customer service and would recommend Athena Solutions without hesitation. The communication from both you and Roy was outstanding, all our queries and questions were answered promptly and it was refreshing to deal with a company with such great customer service skills.
    Gary Griffith (Floreat, WA)

  • Thank you for my blender I love it... was intending to purchase a vitamix but looking into your site I went with your blender and im very happy it does everything the vitamix would have ive made juices ,nut butters, smoothies its great we use it every day
    Amanda Ahern (Port Macquarie, NSW)

  • I Love my Optimum®!! I'd like to say a big thank you for the sale of such a great machine, I love my blender so much it's had me eating so much healthier.
    Laura Exarhos (Yarralumla, ACT)

  • Hi I just received blender, It felt very light in the box and I was worried that it must be small, when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the base. Next I couldn't wait to try it out to see if it was any good, so I tried my favourite test banana milk shake, no fuss… broke up big pieces of banana with 200 ml of milk blended for 35 sec; well I am impressed, no sign at all of any residue, that's the best result I have ever had, and in only 35 seconds. Very impressed, can't wait to try cocktails this weekend.
    PS. Easy to clean, put some water in, turn on 10 seconds, tip out and drain on bench.
    Anthony Butler (Bendigo, VIC)

  • I am thrilled to let you know that the blender arrived today! It's absolutely fantastic! I really appreciate the excellent customer service I've received - I won't hesitate to recommend the Optimum® or Froothie/Athena Solutions to everyone I know!
    Thanks very much for your help, Rebecca
    Rebecca and Philip Davis (Ranelagh, Tasmania)

  • Dear Roy
    I received my blender (delivered at work) on Thursday. My whole office knew it was coming - I couldn't contain my excitement in the build-up. On my lunch break I ran off to the markets and grabs some vegetable and fruit ingredients to blend. The anticipation was high. I blended two juices to share with my colleagues; one an incredible Popeye drink of cucumber, green apple, ginger, mint, lime and spinach, the other papaya, mango, grapes and mint. Both were delicious and amazingly smooth in texture.
    I couldn't wait to get it home and try blending with ice. Once home I did another vegetable juice, a fruit frappe and a Freddo Espresso. Now if you don't know what this is there's a picture below. Simply a shot or two of espresso, sugar or honey and ice blended smooth. Amazing!
    I'm chuffed with the Optimum® and can't wait to try more recipes! So please send me the PDF as it's available.
    I'm yet to try grounding our coffee beans or making almond paste but I will and report back on how it goes. The almond paste will be a special one if I nail it. It's inspired by Amalou - a spread made from Argan nuts in Morocco - the same nuts that are pressed for cosmetic Moroccan oil. It has nuts, cinnamon and I think tahini in it.
    So thank you very much.
    Tina Loppacher (Haymarket, NSW)

  • Yeah, so far it's great. I used it the very first day to make a composite nut butter of almonds, cashews and brazil nuts. And I did all that on the lowest speed. I liked the way the vortex actually moved the entire viscous mix up the sides and down the centre until it was all smooth. There are other makes that won't do that with viscous pastes as parts get stuck on the walls and corners.
    Andrew Healey (Mansfield, Queensland)

  • Hi Mario,
    Yes all good. I am impressed with the blender .. it's more like what I wanted compare to the previous machine.. this one is very much like the vitamix.
    nice to have some programs but good to be able to just turn it on and let it run for a long or short as I like. blending is very smooth.. thanks again for all your help
    Kurt Vogt (Caringbah, NSW)

  • This blender is Fantastic. A friend of my wife's has the VITAMIX 5200, and she was very impressed with the quality and the price!
    Michael Connolly-Greig (West Pymble, NSW)

  • Because my partner works away from home for longish periods and we are so happy with the Optimum® we are buying another one so we both have one to use every day!
    Fiona Crowe (Nedlands, WA)

  • Hi Roy,
    Just letting you know I LOVE the our blender. I couldn't believe how quick it was delivered! I basically make green smoothies for breakfast since being inspired by the literature that is around. I must say I am a complete convert! The smoothies are smooth and creamy and my breakfast takes less than 30 seconds to blend.
    Yours in Froothie heaven,
    Harlene Hercules (Ormond, Victoria NSW)

  • Morning Mirna,
    WOW!!!!!!
    I just made my first smoothie which had 300mls sugar free Cottees cordial, one scoop of Max's Super Shred Protein Powder and 2 handfuls of Homemade Fruit Salad......SERIOUSLY AMAZING PIECE OF MACHINERY!!!!! If I say so myself, one of the best smoothies I've had in my life!!!!
    Well worth the wait!!!!!
    This machine is for home use and now I'm giving some serious thought to buying one for work as I spend so many hours there!!!!
    I would please like to tap into the discount voucher for next year!!! Thanks for offering that up, great Customer Service on your part!!!
    All the best for your business next year!!!!
    Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
    Kind regards

The Optimum® brand is a collaboration of various well-respected manufacturers and suppliers, as well as Optimum® Appliance's exclusive factory in Taiwan, made using the highest-quality parts designed to outlast and outperform expectations.

Click here to view 3rd party verified testimonials, and here to watch our customers - Froothie TV.

  • Motor

    The most important component of a Vortex blender is the power of the motor. The Optimum® 9200A (2ND GEN) has an extraordinary 3.5 Horse Power motor able to easily withstand the toughest ingredients and outlast most other domestic blenders. The Optimum® can quickly and easily emulsify fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and ice into a silky smooth texture which can be used to make soups, ice cream, nut butters and sauces. At a ground-breaking speed of 48,000 rpm the Optimum® 9200A (2ND GEN) can also be used to grind grains and crush ice.

    For Commercial Use, unlike other purely domestic blenders, the powerful commercial-grade motor of the Optimum® 9200A (2ND GEN) can easily withstand the heavy-duty use of juice bars and cafes. At 2,611 Watts, making smoothies and milkshakes is a simple easy task for this durable commercial Vortex blender. The Carbon Brush self-compensating motor makes for not only an efficient use of energy, but also a quieter blending experience that cannot be offered by most other high performance blenders. What's more is that because the motor cools better, it also lasts longer.

  • BLADES

    The Optimum's® blade assembly, a custom-alloy assemblage of special stainless steel manufactured to its finest in Japan and Taiwan, was purpose built for a quicker, smoother and more effective synthesis of ingredients. While most blenders have a 2 or 4-blade assembly, the Optimum® consists of a unique 6-blade assembly, allowing it to blend even the thickest of foods. An additional 2 down-angled blades are designed to prevent any dense foods from getting jammed and creating a vacuum at the bottom of the jug.

    The assembly is securely bolted to a shaft which connects to the bottom blade gear - a feature which then acts as the point of connection for the drive socket when the fully assembled jar and blade set is placed atop the Optimum® motor. The six blades are a multipurpose assemblage allowing the Optimum's® user to combine both wet and dry ingredients with both ease and efficiency. This superior and multi-faceted blade extends the capabilities of the Optimum® far beyond the realms of other competitors, and makes for an otherwise unmatched blending experience.


  • DURABILITY

    While ordinary blenders have a fan motor that runs at maximum power at all times, leading to rapid motor burn out, the Optimum® uses a proprietary carbon brush motor optimised to only use the power demanded - so you get a motor life of decades rather than months. This component is one reason Froothie offers clients the option for a 10-Year Warranty, supported by Athena Solutions Pty Ltd as well as the manufacturer Optimum® Appliances Australia.

    In addition to such feats, the Optimum's® motor has an overload protection fault switch, ensuring that the motor is protected against overload damage. This goes above and beyond the overheat protection thermos found on most commercial grade blenders, as it means one can continue blending without having to first wait for the motor to cool down after overheating and switching off. And with a technology unrivalled by other high performance blending machines, the Optimum's® Carbon Brush motor is the ultimate in blending motorisation for both those who are interested in its use within a commercial setting and/or a personal one.

    Recent tests have also shown the Optimum® to be quieter than competition with a noise level of only 80 decibels, a very important feature when being used in a family home or a quiet café/restaurant.

  • Optimum vs. Vitamix

    The Vitamix TNC 5200, as well as other Vitamix models, is a high-quality blender with a very strong reputation. Competing with such a brand on a global stage is difficult to say the least, especially for a new entrant in the industry.

    To counter this disadvantage, Optimum® has teamed up with globally recognised manufacturers to create a truly unique and powerful blender, while also providing clients the best assurance possible: A 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, No Questions Asked . This has led to tremendous success for the Optimum® brand with demand highly exceeding all expectations.

If you have any questions we will be more than happy to offer you honest advice, simply contact us here. We can assure you of one thing: Anything the Vitamix can make, whether that is a hot soup, a green smoothie or smooth nut butter, the Optimum® can also achieve with no hassles.
