Better than all other blenders we've previously owned

I have always used other blenders in the past that have taken up less bench space. They have never lasted our family longer than 2 years. We decided to take the bullet and purchase an Optimum 8200, and boy was it worth it! For around the same price as other popular brands, we got a bigger jug, better quality appliance and much nicer smoothies and soups! So worth the investment! Show details ·  1

Wow, compared to other blenders

Wow, I put off buying this blender for a long time and went with cheaper versions of blenders.
After the latest break on the fourth cheap blender and spending more money in total.

I finally put in an order, you can feel the quality in the jug it's really heavy and solid and then the blender deals with my frozen banana smoothie with ease. I just turn on 90 seconds on high and perfect smoothie with no bits from the porridge I add to my smoothie, it's totally smooth and creamy.

Very easy to clean as well, after blending my smoothie I add water to cover the blades, and add that to my smoothie. I do the same again, empty and rinse, all done. Show details ·  1

Exceptional. Great review

The 'minimum' function is surprisingly quite quiet. Very happy so far. The Pulse function isn't as powerful at the Omniblend but this remains an excellent value blender. Show reply

This can do almost everything!

This is the second one I am buying - the first one I had around ten years (bought when they first started up) and only replacing as a gave it away to someone who needed it. It has been an extremely trusty kitchen appliance that I use for making desserts, herbal medicines, sauces, spreads, wraps... literally almost anything. I can also powder ingredients to use for skin care preparations amongst other things. They have upgraded the jugs which I love too - I bought a second to have lots on the go at once. Love it always. Love the whole company. Show details ·  1

We LOVE our Optimum blender!!!

I purchased approx 8/9 years ago and we use it everyday for making smoothies, nut milk, nut cream, soups ... you name it! It blends to such a smooth texture. We’re planning to travel and our blender MUST come with us, I’m not sure how we’d live without it now. Show details ·  1

Amazing Super Strong - Blends Kale Super Smooth!

Its incredible what you get for the amazing price and guarantee that comes with it. Very stylish on the bench top. It blends through kale until its super smooth which is the ultimate test in durability and strength. It makes the smoothest of all smoothies! Blends through nuts to make the finest nut butters. So many uses and a must have in any home. We brought the Optimum 8200 as a birthday gift for our son. My son loves it as I love mine (Optimum 9200). Best Blender on the market at this price. Highly recommended. Show details ·  1

Quality product and amazing service

Upon receipt of my blender there was an irregularity with an included accessory.
I called customer service and the problem was sorted instantly.
Whilst used mostly for soups and smoothies so far I haven't had any issues.
We're not yet used to having to use the tamper to move things around mid-cycle so often end up adding too much liquid but once things start moving around the blender makes short work of everything inside.
Very powerful.

Love this blender!

I love my Optimum 8200 and use it regularly. It's simple to use and it easy blends food like frozen fruits, nuts and vegetables perfectly and in no time. I love that the jug is large because it can hold a large amount food/liquid. The Optimum 8200 always blends food smoothly and there's never any larger bits. It's a fantastic blender and great value! Show reply

Excellent high powered blender

Prior to this blender I was using a (much more expensive) Vitamix but I had so many issues with recurrent error codes! The froothie is simple to use and I've never had any issues getting it started. It blends frozen ice and fruit amazingly well and the narrow jug design means it is able to reach all of the mixture easily (my Vitamix used to miss bits!). I also love the suction caps that keep the base stable. Would highly recommend Show details ·  1

A kitchen staple!

I use this blender daily, and have done for the past 6 years. I blend smoothies with frozen fruit and vegetables and they turn out perfect. Previously I have successfully used it to turn outs and chick peas into flour, make curry pastes, and blend cashews for vegan cheesecake (which turned out super smooth and creamy).
When it eventually bites the dust I will replace it with the same again, it is definitely a sound investment in my eyes. Show details ·  1

The most used appliance in my house. Perfect for baking, dips, baby food you name it. It’s love here

Great blending ability, just requires a small amount of liquid to do it’s job.

Capacity of the blender means no splatter either.

Sometimes small items at difficult to blend but including a small amount of liquid resolves. Show details ·  1

A really decent blender and excellent customer service

This is a good blender with useful speeds and functions which you actually use. I make smoothies and nut butters with it and it always works out well. Mostly I really appreciate the customer support Froothie provides; they are always quick to respond, friendly and extremely helpful answering query about your product and how to best use it / fix it. I have found the large jug size really useful, as it means I can make batches of smoothies to freeze for later, and also large batches of nut butter.  Show details ·  1

Still in love after 4 years

I've had this blender for 4 years now and was devastated when I dropped the jug on my kitchen floor and it cracked (luckily without a smoothie in it). Wouldn't want another blender and the wonderful team at Froothie helped me purchase a newer jug which seems bigger and better than my initial one. So easy to clean too and still the most powerful at blending smoothies and making home made hummus.  Show details ·  1

After a year of solid use I am still in love

My dearest Optimum 8200 where do I start? You have opened up a new universe of smoothie recipes and made me realise I have been drinking subpar smoothies my whole life. I love that I can throw whole carrots in and 30 seconds later I have a healthy carrot cake smoothie. And then I can make cashew cheese for dinner and nut butters for snacks. It is a bit on the loud side but after a year of solid use the noise fades into the background. As a dedicated vegetarian for years and new devotee to a vegan lifestyle I could not have made the transition without this blender. Would highly recommend.  Show details ·  1

A powerful beast

I was blown away at the Optimum 8200 ability to make peanutbutter and dressings and smoothies in a hurry. I like the fact that I can just press a button and walk away to attend to the kids or anything, and the blender will continue for 35-90 seconds and then stop by itself. It is so easy to clean too.  Show details ·  1

Our family can't live without this blender!!

We have had this blender for over 4yrs, when the blade jammed and wouldn't work anymore! Our family loves this blender and its used everyday, as it makes the best smoothies. Fortunately it was still under warrantly and the level of customer care recieved from Athena was fabulous from the first initial call until the part arrived! This type of customer service is rare these days.
Now we are back to making the best smoothies and the family is happy again! Show details ·  1

Great quality

The device itself is built with high quality materials. The jug is excellent and easy to clean and use - no worrying about smashing it. Lid is easy to get on and off and clean. Can blitz anything in seconds. It is VERY loud - so if this as issue for you, keep that in mind. You only need to blend for short periods of time though, so I can look past that. My blender came with a few accessories. I haven't used it a great deal but I've made smoothies and thick/runny sauces no problem. I wish the spout could pour faster - apart from that I can't fault this device so far after 1 year. It is very well priced compared to other blenders that do the same thing. Show details ·  1

This 8200 blender supposes to last 5 years ONLY

I bought this blender in mid of 2015 I've only used for my smoothie daily, then just under three years it had problem of smelling rubbering inside the jug and also it produced black powder outside the jug. Then I logged a job to Froothie and they sent me a new blade, I replaced it. And now the machine again is producing the same problem and it is unbelievable very loud noise, and my warranty is just over. Does this machine suppose to last 5 years? While I have had other cheeper blender still running fine. Show details

Easy to assemble and clean. Happily no leaks as was the case with my old blender. Does the heavy lifting of a food processor.

I have been using this blender solidly for almost 5 years. It is a very good machine. The motor is very powerful and has no trouble blending any hard ingredients I choose to add like nuts and seeds.
