The Optimum 9200 blender is amazing
We purchased the 9200 blender from Froothie .com.au over 4 years ago and it has never missed a beat. We use it every day for smoothies and general food blending and it always produces perfect results. Highly recommended this excellent value for money blender.
Excellent blender, easy to use and quiet!
This thing is amazing... definitely the best blender I have ever owned or used. I have a medical condition that means I don’t have a lot of strength in my hands, and can’t use most blender lids as a result - yet this one is easy as! It’s also easy to clean, makes perfect smoothies, frappe, nut butters, desserts, etc, etc. Super powerful and quieter than other bigger-name brands. It is used almost daily and it is a pleasure to have on my bench-top!
Optimal blending / optimal price
I came to the decision to buy the Optimum 9200A from Froothie after doing quite a bit of research using review sites, youtube and google. My main use is smoothies and making nut milk and it does those things very well. Like all blenders it makes noise but not as much as the NutriBullet or the Kenwood Chef mixer I have. And the Optimum is waaaay quieter than my friend's (much more expensive) "big name brand" blender. Also my friend has had problems whereas I have not. That is if you discount a fallen off cord retainer. I'm very happy and the blender is performing really well. I've done soups, nut butters, and other things as well and it does well at everything I've thrown at it.
One of the best
Just received the 9200A (V2) to replace our Sunbeam which sadly overheat. Like the previous reviewer our unit also come with the white paint type of materials which stuck to the power cord.
2L jug capacity with a non slip handle, the sprout construct above the 2L mark is very useful addition. I like the overload reset button located just below the unit.
Most of our fruits are already pre-cut so no issue with the blending. Bleending ice and frozen fruits mix is no issue on the fast setting or the 45 secs setting.
Not sure if the plastic cover over the on/off button will last. For now very good blenders , as for longevity that we have to wait. We used at least 4 times a day and everyday.
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...
Does the job, but ...
Blender works quite efficiently, yes it is loud, but aren't they all?
The jug is a massive 2 litre capacity with a rather uneven surface to the sides. Whilst fine for smoothies and similar liquids which will pour out easily, we found that trying to use a spatular to get thick purees or dips out of the big container with so many surfaces was a bit of a pain. A small (say 750ml) jug with just four flat sides and no little indentations would be good for such tasks, but the smallest jug available for this model is 1.5 litre, which is a little disappointing.
Cannot live without my most used appliance.
Optimum 9200A blender is used every morning. Cannot start my day without a delicious creamy smoothie. Great tasting soups sauces & anything else that requires mixing or grinding.Easy to use, clean & store.
The best ever high speed blender I’ve had. If you want the smoothest creamiest smoothies this is the blender for you. Frozen fruits ,vegetables , ice are not a problem they are blended with no lumps left. I make almond milk every couple of days I add raspberries and they simply disappear you can’t see the seeds everything is pulverised.
The only downside is the noise but with such powerful motor some noise is expected. I was a bit disappointed when it arrived due to the packaging not been perfect I queried Froothie and the excellent customer...
Major improvement on smaller blenders
Great blender at less than half the price of some other name brands. Doesn't miss a thing including flax seeds (providing I load them with the water first). So efficient I seldom need to use the tamper. Needs to be loaded with a fair amount in the large jug provided. I have contacted Froothie who say a smaller jug is planned - some time away but I will buy one when it arrives. Froothie's response to my jug enquiry was swift and polite - I was impressed.
This is well worth the (promotional) price. Much better than the bullet type blenders which...
Seriously great blender. Great value. Easy service from Froothie. Good delivery. Simple - excellent value for money.
Realise that people will want to see ongoing impressions of the Froothie 9200 blender so will likely update this review in the future. But I am highly impressed overall with this purchase. Tested it out today upon delivery with a simple spinach, cucumber, Greek yoghurt smoothie and it was excellent. Seriously good - extremely smooth - zero lumps. Can taste the healthy goodness and it feels great. Powerful motor is obvious. Cleans easily within the blender container itself just following the simple instructions in the book. Nothing to pull apar...t - nothing to get broken or lost during the cleaning process. Spotless. Its white colour design blending really nicely with my kitchen. Makes some noise but not outrageous. Noise is expected from a blender. Am replacing a Breville high end blender that lasted for about 14 years. Was not unhappy at all with the Breville but it was on the way out - had extensive use. The smoothie texture and taste from this Froothie 9200 is significantly better. The operation simple. The recipe book illuminates a highly extensive range of creative cooking options with this 9200 blender. And from many of the reviews I have read on this product, they say it delivers exactly and very well on what is said it will do. So IMO this 9200 blender is a bargain and well worth getting. Will likely update on some cooking creations later - looking forward to the soups. As well as condiments and nut butters that will be new for me in blenders. Five Stars and that is very rare from me. Especially after just one use. Very, very impressed.
Makes such great textured smoothies
This is a seriously powerful machine. I got it for Xmas and so it was great for making ice blended smoothies for summer. Threw in frozen pineapples, mangoes, blueberries and for the smoothest coldest sorbet.
No gritty bits with this blender. Makes hot soups too but you need to blend it on low, to get rid of the micro bubbles.
Personally I prefer it for blending smoothies and sorbets than making hot soups, but to each its own.
I purchased this blender over 4 years ago and it's still going strong. Does a great job and simple to clean up. It's not great for small amounts (you probably need to do at least a cup of mixture) and sometimes I've had to add a little more liquid to get it blending. I haven't tried Vitamix etc so I don't know how it compares to them, but I know it's definitely much better than standard home blenders! I mostly do smoothies (with frozen fruits), nut creams, and soup veggies. The customer service from Froothie when I bought it was excellent - there had been a couple of issues but sorted out quickly and they more than made up for the inconvenience.
Excellent quality and worth the price
This blender is the best blender I have ever owned. I use it daily for smoothies and juices. It is used by all members of the family and the powerful blade and vortex makes it easy to clean (water and soap and a blend cycle - no scrubbing required). When I had an issue recently and emailed the company, I received a response within 10 mins. I have recommended this to many friends and family and have no regrets.
This is the best blender I have used so far!
Very satisfied with the powerful blending ability. Well-built and reliable every time I use it.
Cannot do without it for blending frozen fruits to make smoothies and making smooth pastes with chillies and capsicums for cooking. It is also much quieter compared to other generic machines.
Will definitely recommend it!
Optimum 9200A - CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT
I genuinely love my blender. I use it every day. The smoothies are the smoothiest you can ever imagine. Not a chunk passes through this baby. I make all types of things in my blender. Hummus, pasta sauce, soup, sorbet, and of course smoothies. Sometimes she needs a little help with the stick to get a thick mix going but we shouldn't persecute a girl for needing some help. She is red and beautiful. I love her.
Wouldn't go without my blender, whips through frozen fruit and ice with ease, makes the smoothest smoothies, blends all veggies effortlessly, it doesn't like dates though, had trouble trying to munch them up, so a few at a time is ideal.
I've had mine for about 3.5 years, very reliable and easy to use and clean!
Would highly reccomend this product!
What a beauty!
Love this machine. Use it at least once a week, producing great blended soups and silky smooth smoothies. Optional power settings are fantastic. Would love a smaller jug for blending smaller quantities as it is difficult to extract every last drop of liquid, Scrooge that I am! Couldn't be happier with it.
The Pride and Joy of my kitchen
Having done my research and seeing the products available amongst "Super Blenders" I decided on the Optimum 9200A and have been absolutely thrilled with its performance and the results of the "creations" I have tried thus far.
The quality of the machine is evident, and the power (watts etc), is what one would hope for and expect from a "Super Blender". This was an investment for me, and definitely worth it.
There are a few things in life I enjoy including a nice coffee from a proper coffee machine, a well- made cast-iron and enamel Casserole dish, and this "Super Blender" is certainly one of my "Pride and Joys" which I keep on my kitchen bench and enjoy using every day!
A solid blender
This blender was worth the money. It blends down vegetables to such a fine quality that the kids don't know they have kale or baby spinach in their "hulk banana milkshake". Ours is used on an almost daily basis, and we have had it for about 8months. We recently have had a problem with the base of the jug, which the company responded to quickly, sending out a replacement blade and tool to repair it. Very happy with the product and service. Only loses one star for the plastic of the jug. Despite being strong plastic, it has discoloured and the surface has scratched over time. It does get a lot of use though, and we have bought a replacement jug for it, which I am also glad we had the option to do; one for shakes, and one for sauces.
Can't Imagine My Life Without It!
I was nervous about spending the money at first, but buying this blender has turned out to be the best value for money kitchen appliance I have ever purchased. I make smoothies, batters, soups, nut butter, frozen fruit ice cream, you name it. It does it all with ease. Previously I had only used a blender for making milkshakes and protein shakes based on strength of machine, but this baby has opened up a whole new world of cooking for me and use it on a daily basis. It comes with an excellent cook book full of great ideas to get you started. ...The sales and service team at Froothie are helpful and wonderful to deal with and the machine arrived quickly. I have been so impressed with the quality of the machine and the ease of transaction that I have gone on to buy other Froothie products, all of which I am equally happy with.
Questions & Answers

Thank you so much for your message ❤️

Hope this helps and if there is anything else I can assist you don't hesitate to contact us
i have the 9200 model need to purchase a new blender that has the jugs compatible what do you suggest
Will the blender have enough power and rotational speed to break open linseed seeds?
Haven't tried that yet, but at a guess I think it would be a breeze for it.
Hey Helmut, oh yes 100% that is no problem at all :) You can grind grain into flour so blending linseeds works like a breeze :) Have a look at this video for example: https://www.facebook.com/froothie/videos/optimum-9400-vs-vitamix-blender-comparison-flax-seeds/648408551927265/, https://youtu.be/RIJST72L4Rg
I can recommend the 9200A and the G2.6 for this especially :)
Please see a comparison below between the G2.6 blender and the 9200A blender:
Both the G2.6 and the 9200A blenders come standard with a 2Lt jug within the box.
There are smaller jugs available for either model, a 1Lt jug for the G2.6 and a 12.5Lt jug for the 9200a.
However, for the G2.6 blender the jug is dishwasher safe!!
The dishwasher-safe bearings make it one of the few brands (along with Vitamix and Blendtec) to offer such a technology, ensuring the part which fails the most in blenders (bearings of the blades) will last you many years to come.
Whereas when cleaning the 9200A blender you need to ensure the external bottom of the jug remains dry at all times.
The 9200A blender is our fastest blender in our rage in terms of wattage, peaking at 2611 watts.
The G2.6 blender however has the latest technology within the motor and features automatic torque control, for a more efficient blend. The G2.6 peaks at 2400 watts.
The 9200A blender comes standard with a 5 year warranty for domestic (at home) use.
The G2.6 blender comes standard with a 10 year warranty for domestic use.
Both blenders can be used commercially, and would come with a 1 year commercial warranty.
There is also the option on both blenders to extend the warranty to a "Lifetime Warranty" for an additional $110.
The company is also offering customers a trial period on both units, with the option to return the product within 30 days from the date of receipt of the order for a full refund. This allows you to try the product in your own kitchen before deciding whether to keep it.
Hope that helps :)
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.
