Crushes ice to a smooth paste, makes beautiful sorbet. Blitzs fruits and dates so easily! Best investment you'll make for your kitchen. Show reply

Best blender I have ever owned

My blender from you is excellent quality and works so well. I am able to make incredibly smooth smoothies and almond milk and soup etc and other things too . Easy to clean too. I also bought smaller jug as an extra and find that great to use too. Show details ·  1

The smoothies are sooo smoooth!

I purchased this blender because it seemed to be the best available. My wife makes smoothies every morning from a variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts and herbs. I've replaced the blade assembly on our previous, 'cafe series' blender twice, because she works it pretty hard. It's a relatively expensive part and I found the smoothies were often chewy, to say the least.
In the week since we've been using the Optimum G2.6, the smoothies have been remarkable, with no lumps or chewy bits. Not only that, but it is so easy to use and quieter than the old unit.
While it's only early days, we are very impressed. Show details ·  1

Great machine

This beast has some power, but yet is also so much quieter than previous blenders I’ve had including other optimum blenders. It’s still loud but not ear piercing like most high power blenders. Great for nut milk, the nut meal left over is extremely fine. Super easy to clean. The one-touch options make it a breeze to use. Show reply

Loving this blender!

Purchased this blender after my trusty Kitchenaid died (it was a sad day for us all). I decided to purchase the Optimum Platinum after reading reviews & I am rapt I did.
I use it daily for smoothies & it doesn't matter what I put in there (frozen fruits, kale, oats, nuts, etc) this blender whizzes it up like a champ! No lumps or little surprises left at the end!
Cleaning it is easy & quick. Love it. Show details ·  1

Love it

Have had this machine just 48 hours and I absolutely love it. First I made nut milk, was cagey as new machine but pleased with it. Then I made my protein shake breakfast and again, cagey but happy. Then today a bit braver, best smoothest macadamia milk and protein shake I have ever made. Considering I have been making these things for many years in a very expensive kitchen machine and never got as good a result, I think I managed to pick wisely this time. Now using this machine daily, if only it had been available a long time ago as it blending everything perfectly. Nut milks are a doddle these days ☺️ Show details ·  1

A great, robust, surprisingly quiet blender

I was surprised for such a strong blender, it is relatively quiet. Easy one touch options. The on/off button is also the start/stop button which is not made clear as it only says on/off. Show reply

I love my blender. It’s very powerful and a joy to use as it’s very modern and sleek. My first recipe was a pear, apple banana smoothie and it came out like whipped cream. Very smooth and in under 45s. Love it. Highly recommend. Show reply

Best blender out there

I’ve been an Optimum user since 2014, having previously owned the Optimum 9400 blender. I thought that blender was great, especially compared to my old Breville, until I decided to upgrade to the G2.6! Only reason I upgraded was because I wanted a black blender, my 9400 was red and still going strong. The G2.6 does the smoothest smoothies, even with nuts in it. Haven’t used yet for other types of blends, but for my morning smoothies, it’s fast, blends amazingly and isn’t as loud as my previous blender. Highly rate it, especially for the price. Show details ·  2

Very happy with our blender

Currently using this for smoothies and very happy so far. I bought this to replace our Nutribullet which had broken (the container). It’s more quiet than the Nutribullet, easy to use and easy to clean.

Love the fact that there’s a 7 year warranty Show details ·  1

Perfect smoothie maker

Our previous machine worked reasonably well, but never really coped with the every morning routine of making our smoothies (even though that's what it was supposedly designed for). We used the Optimum for the first time this morning and it really is a vastly different experience. Powerful, quieter, perfect smoothie and just didn't hesitate starting up and blasting frozen berries and banana. If like us you are really focused on healthy eating and make 52 smoothies a year, get serious and invest in a machine built for the job, very very happy!! Show reply

The best ever kitchen assistant yet

The G2.6 is proving to be everything it is advertised as. I have been very happy with its performance to date, i have used it everyday since its arrival. Since my purchase my new addiction is creating spreads with soaked pumpkin and sunflower seeds, the G2.6 is proving it has multiple uses and successful outcomes each and every time. Show details ·  3

Our first G2.6 jug bearings seized after almost 2 years of use and Froothie offered us a new replacement jug (with no lid or plunger) for free plus the choice to buy a complete jug (with lid and plunger) for a heavily discounted price. Great customer care from Froothie! Show reply

An Excellent Product

So far we have used the G2.6 to make soup and fruit smoothies. Initially I was a bit daunted by all the button options but once I got started I realised it was very easy to operate, and having different settings is great. The timer is especially convenient because it means I can concentrate on something else while the blender takes care of itself. The soup was quickly pureed and very smooth, no lumpy bits at all. The smoothies blended equally quickly, the ice was quickly broken up. The noise level is much better than our last blender, we are very pleased with this aspect. Show reply

What a dream to use for daily Smoothies

We previously owned the Optimum 9400 blender and had over 5 great years of high-level use. As we are now making smoothies 2-3 times/per day for our family of 5, so we decided to upgrade. Definitely not disappointed. The 9400 was awesome the G2.6 Platinum is incredible. Will blend anything and all so easy with the pre-programmed buttons. Also, it is much easier to clean due to the flat, wipeable surface Show reply

Excellent machine, stacks up equally well

I had previously owned a Vitamix and used it 2-3 times a day; however, this new blender is just as good—perhaps better.
It blends solids and liquids excellently, but my one small critique is that the taper could reach just a little lower.
I really like the pre-set programs; I can set what I want and leave the kitchen to have it all ready for me. Show details ·  1

Great product!

We owned 3 of the previous models at our ice creamery shop. They did perfect jobs. However we wanted to upgrade them and bought 1 of this with 30 day trial guarantee. After the first use in order to make a thick sake, it did not disappoint us. Then we decided to order 2 more of them with sound covers. So far they are doing great job. Hopefully they can last long. Show details ·  1

Great Cocktail Maker

I bought a cheap blender, and it wouldn't crush ice. After some research and comparisons, I bought the G2.6.
Worked great, then malfunctioned. Was repaired straight away. Initially I had to pay postage, which was later refunded. Show details ·  1
