Absolutely love this blender!
Have been using our blender for good few months now and absolutely love it!
We've made smoothie bowls, smoothies, soups, coconut milk, nut butters, pancake mix. And no problems with anything! I found the smoothie setting the most handy (for anything really), I can just turn it on and go do other things in the meantime.
Highly recommend! :)

Great! High powered
Love that it grinds coffee beans really well (no lumps). Bit noisy but I can deal with that. I’m looking forward to making some nut butters. Have made some really nice smoothies and works well with frozen fruit as well as fresh vegetables and fruit

My new favourite blender
I’ve been using more expensive brands for years and was completely satisfied with this purchase. It honestly exceeded my expectations and I’m using the G2.6 2-3x a day now!

The only blenders I’ll use
I purchased the optimum 9400 second hand a few years ago snd loved it. This year I decided to upgrade so I could have two machines. I upgraded to the optimum G2.6 and I love it too. I have both machines(the older in my caravan). I’ve tried other brands and have been really disappointed. The frothier brand of blenders are fantastic and when it comes to smooth smoothie bowls. Nut milk, ice cream and the like, you won’t find anything better. They run smoothly, don’t bounce around and are definitely not as loud as some out there. These machines are work horses. I create recipes and couldn’t do without my tools, they make life so simple and uncomplicated. I would highly recommend both the optimum 9400 and the optimum G2.6

Hey, not a bad product but i would expect better for the price.
It’s been a few months i’m using the g2.6, it does the job done.
But i have to start two blending cycle for a smoothie, otherwise there is still little frozen cubes. Which means i also have to add ice cube if i want a cold smoothie as the blades heat up the juice. Adding ice cube also mean less taste.
Very hard to get everything from the jug when doing nut butter, hummus or any sauce a bit thick, even with the spatula (the one provided is a joke btw). I’ve read that with the smaller jug it is better (but for another 100$, no thanks)
And finally, the jug starts to crack at the base, even though it never falls... i hope the warranty works for the jug!

A sturdy, versatile blender and great customer service
This blender is very high powered and versatile. I have successfully made ice cream, smoothies, hummus and sweet balls so far. Unfortunately it arrived with two buttons that did not work which was disappointing but the issue was dealt with promptly and I was very happy with the customer service from Froothie, so I have still given a 5 star rating. Very good value for money with a ten year warranty. I am extremely happy with my purchase.

Been using it for 3 weeks and very impressed with its performance. Used for smoothies and soups so far and the output is perfectly smooth. Powerful machine with very easy to use digital panel. Looks good too.

Misleading Heading on website
I'm based in NZ & the blender took 16 days to arrive after payment. The blender shipped from Melbourne. I understand during COVID times that deliveries take longer - However the Froothie NZ website clearly states in capital letters on the front page 'NZ company warehouse in Auckland', Which lead me to believe the machine would be shipped locally. The blender itself works OK. I make smoothies with it. It's loud but effective. The lid is extremely difficult to close properly. Infact after numerous uses I still haven't managed to fully close it.

I looove it!!!
This blender is just amazing!
I've worked with a lot of different blenders and this one is the best so far.
The only thing is that the jar is difficult to pour from if you have a thick smoothie, then it kind of pours from the sides.
Solid construction. Heavy duty.
I just love it!!!

Omg, thank you!
I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a nice cream, but the consistency was too dense for the blender. On top of that i started on the "low" setting instead of starting on high speed. All of a sudden the blender stopped and the buttons for speed selections stopped working. I was consumed with guilt at the thought of having broken the motor or smth. Luckily, i read the reviews and found out about the infamous overload button(on my model is on the bottom side of the blender) and boom, the blender worked! I love this product so much, and just for this safety button alone, it is worth every penny! Thank you thank you thank you!
Btw, the nice cream was incredible ;)

Loving it so far
Only received yesterday.
Communication from froothie was fantastic! Helpful and prompt replies.
I upgraded to the G2.6. Once my payment went through my blender arrived the next day!
*****Unboxing - looks flash. My husband stated it lookedw nice and sleek.
First use - I did have to read the instructions as I couldn’t work it out at first ! The panel will flash when blender is plugged in. Then you need to press on/off to power on the panel. Then choose your preset, then press on /off to start blending. Pretty easy once you know. Not a big de...al- as I read some negative comments about this. I also read the lid can be tricky to get on and off - you do have to push down each side to put it on properly but I don’t find this difficult at all. Blending - I made a protein fruit smoothie and it turned out super creamy and smooth. This morning I made a banana icecream and tried using the tamper tool which I had trouble with as was only making a small serving for myself so the tamper couldn’t reach the ingredients at the bottom. I needed to stop and use a spoon to stir it around 2 times, then I used a combo of “sorbet” setting and then pulse and it blended really well into the icecream and pretty fast! Maybe the 1 Lt jug would work better for smaller servings.

Amazing kitchen appliance
Love everything about this Optimum G2.6 Platinum Series, it blends well both liquids and solids. We have made smoothies and soups with this and so far so good. Easy to use and wash. Sits perfectly on the bench.

I didn’t think it would be this good
I’ve had 2 9400’s since 2013 ( Straya & NL ) loved them, I received my G2.6 very recently and I’m completely blown away by it, it does everything with ease, I’m a daily user, believe me when I tell you that I will be “ testing “ it, is there anything it can’t do / accomplish ? I doubt it

Outstanding product and service
For over 6 years we have used Nutribullets daily, sometimes several times each day, at home, to do all sorts of things. While good for the price, recent models have dropped in quality. When our latest bullet died after only 18 months of use, but our original bullet was still going at the office, we switched brands to one more concerned about quality. We started with Vitamix blenders. Research led us to Froothie and their range of blenders, which appeared as good or better than Vitamix at about half-price.
In December 2020 we plunged for an Op...

Questions & Answers
Can I turn branches into powder with this blender? It is very important to me to be able to turn solids into powder with out delay.
Hey Litty, which branches are you referring to please? In general you can turn all ingredients into powder quite easily in this powerful blender :)
Hi there I just got my new G2.6 platinum blender and the buttons on the touch screen don’t work! Plz heap!
Hey Jake, The Optimum G2.6 Platinum Series comes with a small on/off switch that is located at the bottom of the unit. Please refer to the following photo and take note of that little white button that is on the bottom right-hand side of the base: https://prnt.sc/w9q764
In order for the blender to power up, you will need to press this switch prior to using your G2.6. It is not uncommon for customers to forget about this, so no stress at all!
Hope this helps, and do let us know if you have any other queries that we may assist with!
Hi yes we have tried all this and still not working we were talking to Andrea from real food solution but havnt heard from her in 2 days. It’s like the touch button are not working? Who can we call to get a replacement, my wife is very upset as it was her Christmas present and she has smoothies everyday! We are very excited to one day use this amazing blender.
Hi, I am having the same issue. Powered on and only one light is flashing and none of the touch pads appear to be working. Not impressed after spending this much money on a blender.. was Also really looking forward to using this amazing blender after reading all these great reviews. Can’t seem to access a 24/7 support team you talk about either?
Hi my g2.6 blender won’t start it’s just flashes E01 on the screen , is this a fault code for the blender
Try unplugging and plugging back in. If that doesn't work, I'd contact Froothie as it may be a motor issue.
Hey Nathan, please make sure the jug is placed onto the base. If that was done then error E01 could mean that water has gained access into the display PCB. Please leave the unit for 48 hours to dry and try again.
If you still require assistance you can contact our technical support under: https://athenasolutions.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Hope that helps :)
I have the same problem.
