I bought the OmniBlend lll 1.5 litre for $245 in Nov. '13. This is the basic and smaller blender with just the ON/OFF and HI/LO buttons and no timer. I consider the motor very powerful. I've had it now for 4 months and compared to all the other blenders I've owned over the years, this is great! I use it mainly for soups, fruit smoothies and frozen margheritas and it completely outperforms every other blender I've owned. If I have it for 5 years (which it is guaranteed for), it will far outlive all the others too.
There is just one thing ...to watch out for - when you blend hot soups, you must do it in small amounts - 200 - 300ml lots. I didn't and got tomato soup all over the kitchen. This does not happen with cold food. Apart from that, I'm very pleased with it. Reasonable price for the basic model, performs well and super easy to clean. Nothing wrong with it. Blend hot liquids in small amounts. Update August 2019: My blender is still going strong after 5 and a half years.
Purchased in November 2013 at Online for A$245.00.
Questions & Answers
I tried to make almond butter yesterday and eventually succeeded in making it but in the middle of the process, my omniblend started making really loud sounds like something was broken. I can't tell what's wrong with it but could it be the drive socket that requires replacing? And is omniblend able to make almond butter like vitamix, the recipe book I got had Nutella recipe so thought this should work too..
My omnibkend jug broke. It's out of stock on the website, however it says vitamix is compatible. Would the vitamix work for both wet and dry ingredients because it only says wet item description.
Hi Mis.b, We are expecting stock to arrive at the end of this month but we may be able to help you out with ex demo stock and it is possible you do not need a complete new jug. Please email us through firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 02 66 856 360. Thanks Raph, OmniBlend Australia.
