Hello Sonya and thank you for your query.

The Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) is a higher quality appliance to the Optimum 8200. Below is a summary of the differences:

- The Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) has a faster and more powerful motor. This leads to quicker blending and better consistency for thick contents
- The longer blades of the 9200A (2nd Gen) also allows it to chop, grind and slice more effectively
- The 9200A (2nd Gen)’s bearings have more seals and better quality ball bearings, leading to increased longevity and the ability to be used commercially with no issues

The 8200 is a great affordable blender, easily outperforming the likes of NutriBullet, Breville and Sunbeam
