I am very impressed with the power the Optimum blender. I have had a Sunbeam blender for the past 10+ years and was happy with its performance. However once it broke down I decided to see what else was on the market. I decided to purchase the Optimum as is was Australian made and couldn't see any bad reviews. I am very happy I purchased one. I thought the Sunbeam was good with blending ice, it was a bit noisy and scary, always wondering if the blades were going to break. The optimum blends ice with total ease. Instead of always being sli...ghtly anxious about breaking the blades, I can now switch on the blender and relax. I also think it is a bit quieter compared to the Sunbeam. I have realised not to blend for too long as it is so powerful, that it will actually melt the ice and start to warm up the mixture. So it is quicker and needs less time to blend things. I am also impressed with the mechanism where the jug connects to the base. It is full metal on metal so it will not wear easily. The Sunbeam had metal on plastic and I needed to have the base replaced under warranty at one stage because the plastic was all worn down and didn't work. I would recommend anyone to purchase the Optimum Blender. The customer service is also 100%.

Excellent quality, value &outstanding customer service!
Having owned the previous model for a few years without any issues, I was already very impressed by the quality of Optimum blenders. No wonder they are a competitor to the more expensive brand (that remain unnamed)!
I had been using the previous model at least weekly without fail. Mainly for blending oats into flour, soaked dates into date paste (sugar substitute) and making bliss balls (blending the above 2 ingredients together plus others). It was also able to blend dry rice without issues. Over the years, the odd pit in the dates eventually...

A versatile addition to my kitchen
Thanks Froothie for this sturdy blender. It does what I wanted it to do (crushes ice for delicious smoothies; makes hummus), and it also does some extra things I had no idea it could do - namely, chopping onions! Here is a YouTube video I made which features this blender and its onion-chopping abilities. It took me a bit of getting used to the blender and how to get it to work effectively (like - the blades always need to be surrounded by food, otherwise the machine goes into overdrive and I have to wait for it to cool down and then press the r...e-set button on the bottom), but now that I know how it works, and how to keep the blades surrounded by food (I take the jug off the blender and give it a bang on the bench, rather than using the tamper tool, which makes more dishes to wash), it is a kitchen favourite. I love how it's so easy to set up, then wash and pack away. Here is a YouTube video I made featuring this blender, as well as a still photo from the video where I start chopping onions.

Couldn't be happier except...
I'm very happy with the blender. Very simple to use and easy to clean. The blending process is fast and the resulting product extremely smooth. I believe it's worth the money. However the noise it produces while blending can be scary. It is pretty loud!!

Best blender I have owned (& I've been through a heap!!)
I've had this machine for 6 months now and love it. I've burned out blenders galore (some with a similar price tag to Froothie) in record quick time but the Froothie just powers through everything. I use it for smoothies, soups, juices, dips, nut butters etc. So far anything I have thrown at it is easily blended. The only thing missing is being able to remove the blades, as the nut butter and thicker dips are a little harder to get out from under the blades. Other than that I am loving it, and using it most days.

Some manufacturing faults
The blender came with some faults. The faults are cosmetic. The branding/logo on the unit is jagged and looks very unprofessional and the cable that attaches to the machine has a white substance on it that does not come off with light cleaning. I contacted Froothie, they were pleasant in their communication, but did take a very long time to respond and did not offer any compensation for the faults. In the end, I asked if they would compensate for the faults and all that was offered was a measly $20. Although the faults are only cosmetic and not...mechanical, I found these issues a nuisance. I invested a lot of money in an appliance that I expected to be of high quality in terms of both the aesthetics and mechanics. Optimum market themselves as a top-end, extremely high quality product. Sadly, on the aesthetics side, I am disappointed. Especially that the RRP price of this particular blender is almost at $800. The blender itself works well, sometimes bits do get stuck and it takes quite a few attempts to resolve this issue. I have yet to try the machine with more heavy duty items like nuts etc, however, it works fine with soft fruit and liquids etc...

Optimum’s 9200A high-speed blender enjoys an impressive 4.9-star rating. With a decent number of domestic and commercial functions enabled by its powerful 2,611 watt motor, there seems to be little that the Optimum 9200A can't handle.
Functions of the Optimum 9200A:
- Crushes ice
- Blends whole fruits and vegetables
- Makes green smoothies
- Automatic blending options for 20, 30 or 45 seconds
- Grinds nuts and grains
- Makes nut butters and nut milks
- Built-in overload sensor
This is in addition to any regular blending tasks that less advanced blenders can perform.
Happy reviewers really liked that their Optimum 9200A blended smoothly with ‘nil chunky bits.’ This often involved blending smoothies, but also included smooth nut butters and flours.
