Not nearly as good as a Vitamix at all, despite claims from the company.
Let's get straight to the point: the Omniblend V is crappy compared to a Vitamix.
It's an ok machine compared to $80 blenders and it lasted me 6 years, so that's pretty good. It makes flour, smoothies, nut milks, etc. It felt like a 4 to 5 star machine to me up until recently.
However, now I know better. The company convinced me to buy an Omniblend instead of a Vitamix 6 years ago by claiming that its performance is comparable to a Vitamix. It was cheaper too, so it seemed like an easy choice. They persuaded me with their horsepower numbers an...d comparing videos etc, but in the end; it's the quality of the design and materials that make the better blend. I dropped the Omniblend jug, and it broke. The lid and the jug hadn't looked good for years, despite washing them every time. The jug was stained and dull and the lid kind of had this gross texture to it. A new jug was going to be $189, so I decided to buy a new Vitamix instead, as I didn't want to spend that much money on one jug and then have the motor give out in a year or so (not that there was any sign that it would, but I didn't know how long it would last past the 6 years I had already used it for). The Vitamix Explorian 310 has a similar price to the Omniblend V depending on the deal. I got it for $471. And it blew my mind! The blends are soooo smooth I can hardly believe it. This is the definition of blending, it's so powerful and there are no separated chunks or slight grittiness at all. It makes everything taste amazing. It blows the Omniblend V out of the water and I wish I had gone for a Vitamix from the start! An Omniblend is a waste of money compared to a Vitamix. Plus the Vitamix company has existed for a long time, and is known for their durable machines, so it's likely to outlast the Omniblend by a mile as well. The Vitamix is a tad noisier, but they're both super noisy. It's obvious to me now that an Omniblend is a total rip-off of a Vitamix. It looks similar in a lot of ways, but the materials and design are of way worse quality.

really good blender
This is definitely one of the best blenders I've used and it wasn't even the most expensive. mine in 2 years old and it still runs like brand new. it blends fruits and vegetables effortlessly for the best smoothies or sous. its really easy to clean to.
Best blender ever owned
One of the best blenders that has no problem with ice an liquids. Had previous kitchen style types where it souded like it was a steain to mix. Not this one. Powerful and never dissapoints. Strongly reccommend to lovers of coctails or moctails.

Great Machine, Great Service
I purchased this blender 7yrs ago and use it at least once daily. I had an issue with the blade and customer service were brilliant to deal with and quickly resolved the problem. I would highly recommend this product for price, value and reliability. It has been a real workhorse for our family.

6 years in, changed a blade, and all's new again!
I have a Omniblend V 1.5L that's 6 years old. Machine and running was running great until now where I realised the blade is a bit blunt and lose, causing it to run at a rougher sound. Purchase a replacement blade set and everything works like new again! Very happy with the purchase and replacement part.
The blender of my dreams!
This blender can handle pretty much anything. Nut butter, veggies, grinding flour, its a beast. Great Value too, I almost bought a Vitamix at twice the price. It arrived quickly and no need for customer service so far.

Great Product but read the warranty
I bought a Omniblend V for home use only and it has been excellent. I use it everyday for a morning smoothie of which the hardest material I blend is frozen fruit. I am writing this as I am disappointed with the support from Omniblend Australia.
At 3 years and 3 months the blender stopped working. It started making a high pitched sound when blending and smoke came out of the base of the jug, filling inside the jug and smelled like burning plastic.
Believing I had a 7 year warranty I contacted Omniblend and was asked for photographs of the ...machine, tamper handle, jug and lid (including the lid plug). I was asked if I had blended the lid plug or tamper handle or had submerged the jug in water or washed it in a dishwasher. All of which I said "no", home use only and have looked after it. After suppling this information I was informed that the 7 year warranty is for the engine only and the rest is 2 years. It cost $128 for a new blade assembly as the bearings had gone in the jug. I installed this myself but if your not handy you will have to post the jug (at extra expense) to Omniblend Australia to repair for you.

We are a disability Service who use the Omniblend for our Customers. We needed the mushroom to continue using this product. It was good to know that the item could be removed and replaced by us and not have to get a technician in.
Powerful and so diverse in its use. 10 out of 10
What a wonderfully powerful simple machine. It blends straight through anything you throw at it. I’m slowly experimenting with different processes like flour making, dips drinks etc. My husband is loving the iced coffee frappes. Plus there are so many recipes ideas available you’d be hard up not to find a use for it. 10 out of 10

Best blender I've ok owned, gone through 5 others before this one
I've tried multiple other brands
Nutribullet, brevilles, sunbeams, hand blenders etc.
Splashed out for the JTC Omniblend V about 3 years ago and wow. It's bullet proof.
I regularly smash it with ice, hard ice cream, frozen berries etc, and it's just churns through it all.
Best blender I've owned to date.
Thanks JTC for making such a reliable hard working appliance that still works the same as when I bought it years ago

The Omniblend is so much better that the Nutribullet that I have been using for years. It is more efficient and effective ans so easy to clean. I love it!

This is a great product - will help me achieve my healthy lifestyle goals!
The ordering and delivery was fast and efficient. It helps me get my daily intake of healthy greens. Great for making soups. I love the pulse button and it is more than powerful enough for my needs.

High-quality blender for a fair price
Since I am a raw vegan recipe creator, I need my blender to perform at its best - make the smoothest nut milks, creamiest smoothies and most flavourful sauces. I've used the OminBlend for one month now and am so excited about the results. The supreme test was banana ice cream last night which worked out very well without the need to add too much water to get it going.
Right now, the blender still smells a bit on higher power which I have experienced before with other new kitchen gadgets in the past but I assume that this wears off about a few...more weeks of usage. It can get a little loud but to be honest, this is the case with basically any high-speed blender and I don't mind it as long as it gets my sauces, dressings, smoothies as creamy. Great blender with lots of power!

Questions & Answers
We love our Omniblend V and use daily. I have noticed the 2litre jug is turning cloudy white around the bottom, what could this be from ?
Hi Team, I got OmniBlend V for 4 years. It is a fantastic blender that does the job well all the time.
I now have an issue that liquid is leaking from the jug through the blade assembly down to the base.
How do I fix this issue or do I need to purchase a new jug. Can you pls help advised.
replace the blade set on the jug should fix that as the seal get wear and tear
My question is: when reading the reviews people are asking questions or unhappy. Why has Omniblend not answered their queries? I would expect more from an Australian supplier.
We are very happy with our two blenders We have never needed to ask questions or needed the help of the supplier The information sent explains everything. Their service is fast and that is all that matters Thanks OmniBlend

The high-speed OmniBlend V, which costs $499, is a six-blade blender that’s built with a powerful 2,238-watt motor.
As the Blender Award Winner in both 2017 and 2019, the OmniBlend V enjoys a well-deserved 4.7-star rating.
According to OmniBlend, this blender is designed with a diverse range of functions. Here are some of the more advanced functions that may help account for the OmniBlend V's price tag.
You can use this blender to: grind coffee beans, whip cream, grate cheese using the Pulse function, grind whole grains into flour, wet or dry chop vegetables, make bread dough, nut butters and milks, and juices with or without the fibre (thanks to the nut milk bag).
There are three automatic timer buttons. You can select a blend time of 35, 60 seconds or 90 seconds, to make blending easier.
The OmniBlend V also comes with a tamper to help you crush and integrate ice with other ingredients instead of blending ice in completely. For example, this is great for cocktails.
