This is a perfect juicer
Love this machine, fresh juice every day. Morning or night because its super quiet
Easy to clean with just a simple rinse
My body is rejuvenated and skin looks amazing
Plus all the scraps that comes out, I feed it to my worm farm
Nothing bad I can really say about this product
Brilliant juicer for a great price
This is the first cold press juicer I've had and I'm really happy with it. It's really quiet and easy to use. Set up is easy and it looks great on the counter top (I bought mine in white). The juice yield is better than my old centrifugal juicer. I've even used it to make fruit 'ice cream', tofu and almond milk. This is a great all rounder. It does what it's supposed to and a little bit more.
Love my Optimum 500 Juicer.
We use our juicer every day and are so pleased with the juicing results, we mostly use sweet potato, carrots, apples, oranges, celery, kale, lemons, limes, beetroot and pears. We must try other veggies, but have been so pleased with the flavours we use, it is hard to branch out. We do find it sometimes hard to take apart for cleaning, also today we got a fright when it jammed, I cut everything up into small pieces and mix hard and soft pieces, but for some reason a piece of Beetroot became stuck and the machine stopped and we could not get the top off. Thank goodness my husband managed to separate it. We would recommend it to anyone, what a great product.
Great juicer. Literally use it every day.
We upgraded from a very old high speed juicer and are very happy that we stepped up into the world of slow juicing. We have literally used this every morning since we bought it and have not had any problems. We made some friends a real fruit sorbet after dinner one night and they were really impressed with how quiet it was, we could actually talk quite easily while it was smashing up the fruit. We did have some issues with clogging when we put long bits of kale through the machine, but saw something online that said it is best to cut the stringy vegetables up into smaller pieces and we have not had any issues since. Overall, fantastic machine and would recommend to anyone.
Excellent juicer . Love it!
I have used several slow juicers before and this is the easiest to assemble and clean. Does not get clogged up and the residue is easy to remove. I use it for a variety of fruits and vegetables, including kale and it deals with everything.
Fresh juices are a vital part of my way of life
Love it love it love it!!
This juicer is definitely the best juicer I have ever had. It produces fabulous juice, has several different juicing strainers allowing me choice and is relatively easy to clean. I use it every day for health and generally juice carrots, celery, tomatoes, ginger, lemon and beetroot. I don't believe the motor is very loud and I have had no problems whatsoever with it unlike my old Sunbeam that constantly got stuck and jammed with vegetable matter. Money well spent and I am extremely happy with my purchase. I would definitely buy more from this company.
Wouldn't be without it
Best juicer I've owned. Having weak and painful hands, I struggle to use similar machines. This one is easy to dismantle and clean. It is quiet and the juice is so good. I use it everyday to make fruit and vegetable juice. It is a family event, selecting, washing and cutting up the produce and "feeding" the juicer. A great way to start the day. My health has improved. Wish I'd bought it years ago.
Love it! Life changer!
I absolutely love my Optimum 500! I had a big juicer I was using for 18 months before it broke so thought I would look around at cold pressed juicers after buying a juice overseas and the girl at the store explained all the heath benefits of cold pressed. It's so easy to make, a lot less wastage than my old juicer so I know I'm getting more of that goodness and fibre and best of all. My husband loves the juice! He actually brings home fruit and vege that he wants to try.
I have a newborn baby and wouldn't dream of using my old juicer while ...she is sleeping due to noise but I use my Optimum 500 all the time (even with her in the room) without disturbing her. Easy to clean, just a quick rinse and I'm done. Great for juicing dark leafy greens which my old juicer couldn't do. I just love it! My favourite kitchen appliance - looks good on the bench too!
Loving my juicing routine even more now that I have my Optimum 500!!
I first started with a blender and sieve to get my juice (while saving some $$$). I researched thoroughly to get a great value and a great cold press juicer for my greens. The best cold press juicers go up to $500 above. I finally decided to get Optimum 500 as it was on sale, for just AU$300 - with a local service/warranty within Australia, I couldn't pass this up. Now that I have it for a month and a half, I would never want to part with it. This juicer gives great flavoursome liquid as well as very dry pulp. The only thing that I noticed is t...o juice cucumbers and apples first before your kales and greens then carrots and beets last (which was instructed). I haven't tried juicing wheatgrass with it, but I find that I have to 'scrunch' soft veggies/herbs like spinach, sprouts and parsley, otherwise it won't juice that well. I also find the reverse button works well for the end of your juicing - to get the most out of the last bits of produce. I also use it to make my own almond milk once a week! It is easy to clean - although I clean the strainers with a rougher (green) part of the dish wash sponge instead of the brush that came with it, as sometimes the pulp can still stuck in those little fine holes - the rough part of the sponge does the trick. Once a week, I would soak the parts with baking soda and hot water and scrub/clean them. My family now have started to notice the difference of my weight loss and increased energy - they are getting into green juicing as well. I recommended my friends to purchase Optimum 500, because it is the best value juicer out there. I'm saving up to give to my parents one as well. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Thanks Froothie!
42 day vegetable juice diet - we made it together
I needed a reliable cold press juicer for my 42-day liquid diet - juicing loads of hard vegetables like beetroots, carrots, celeriac, radishes and potatoes. The Optimum 500 from Froothie had no issue with this challenge and supported me not only all the way through it but still keeps going strong.
Outstanding performance juicer
I have just purchased my Optimum 500 and it is the best decision I have made.
This juicer looks really good on my counter top and I can tell you for its size it really packs a punch (Fruit/Veg Punch)
Some fruits and vegetables might require cutting but overall I have had no problems just feeding it all those goodness. This machine is really quiet and I like how it doesn't draw attention to itself.
The most amazing thing to me is the pulp, it is really dry. It means that the juicer really extracts every bit of juice from the fruit or vege. My...
Vegetables in a glass
Optimum 500 Slow Juicer is a permanent fixture on our kitchen bench top. Our juices are primarily vegetables with a few added fruits to sweeten the juice. We do not have to worry about whether we are having enough vegetables in our daily diet. We have also cut down on our coffee intake because we have the juice as part of our morning breakfast.
The juicer also has additional features such as making nut milk and various types of frozen fruit sorbet much to the delight of our lactose-intolerant family member. We have thus far made, cashew milk...and strawberry and mango sorbet. The downside to the juicer is that the pulp tends to get stuck in between the gaps of the strainer and causes build up over time. Froothie recommended that I soak the strainer with warm water but sometimes it takes a few wash to remove the pulp.
Back On Track With Healthy Juices
Recently because of added responsibility at work, I was feeling always tired. I bought an Optimum slow juicer and really feel the benefits of my juice at the start of the day. I have cut down on coffee and feel so much more energetic.
I like the way the juicer squeezes the juice out of the fruit and leaves a dry pulp behind. It is quick to set up and easy to use. I cut fruit up into large wedges and only both cutting up stringy vegetables like celery. I often include much of the pulp in the juice to thicken it up and get the benefits. The...
So glad i made this Purchase
i received my Optimum 500 slow Juicer a couple of days ago and I'm so happy with the purchase. I have so far made orange and pineapple juice which is mainly what i wanted the machine for. Its fantastic does exactly what it says it does and it's really easy to use. Instruction booklet is easy to follow and setting up the machine is a breeze. Looks fantastic on the bench top and easy to clean after use. I can't wait to discover what else i can make with the juicer and I'm very glad i made the purchase after much research and reviews I've red. you won't regret it and its well worth the money spent.
Just what our lives needed, but frustrating at times!
It's quiet and produces great juices with a lot of product. We borrowed my parents optimum 400 for a trial and I feel that the design changed were a mixed bag. i do not think that the tap fitting inside the chute is as good as the 400 where it fit outside the chute. This is because it is harder to clean and it is not easily removed.
The on/off switch wobbles and does not appear as sturdy as the 400 (maybe some cut corners?). The positives are the size is much better and the centre masticator appears a better design.
I agree with others ...that the celery drive me mad. I always leave it until the end but always gets frustrating. Even if you cut it into smaller pieces, they seem to end up lodged inside and not even juiced. This is where the designers need to be working! I would not pay the $500, I think $299 is the max I would pay.
