Optimum V.S. NutriBullet - Verified 3rd Party Testimonials

Absolutely Fantastic!!

Had a Nutribullet, and liked it, but this tops it by far! More functionality and better smoothies. Even made batter for pancakes and was so easy!

Optimum 9200A - Absolutely brilliant blender

Being a big fan of healthy smoothies purely from a nutrition point of view, I have invested a lot of money in various brands out there in the market like the Nutri Ninja with auto iQ, Nutri Bullet, OmniBlend and can confidently say that they are no match for the raw power and finish that an Optimum 9200A gives. Simply awesome product compounded with fabulous support by the Froothie team, I have introduced 3 of my friends to this product and they too have not a word of complain about it.

-Continue reading..

I just love our 9200A!!

We purchased a 9200A in December, we use it everyday and the whole family just loves it! A friend has purchased one too because it is so good! I highly recommend this product and have been telling everyone about! Look online at the video which compares the 9200A against the Nutri Bullet! You won't look at anything else!

-Continue reading..

Excellent!

This 9200A blender is fantastic. It blends almonds into milk within 30 seconds and makes delicious healthy smoothies. … I was looking at the NutriBullet but I'm so glad I got this one. Don't be indecisive about buying it, you won't be disappointed.

-Continue reading..

Has become a life changer

You have to own one to appreciate how these machines work. Owning a cheaper version of a nutribullet and knowing that this device spins at 10,000 RPM there is simply no comparison when it comes to blending ANYTHING! …I would strongly recommend this machine in fact I bought one after my daughter purchased one!

-Continue reading..

Makes the best smoothies I have ever tasted!!

Brought this after looking at a few different models, including the Nutri Bullet and the like. Read a bunch of reviews and bit the bullet so to speak (no pun intended!!) and splashed out on the 9200A. What a purchase!! From the very first smoothie, I was making them like a professional.... My girlfriend has one of the cheaper brande d blenders and just loves to use my one when she comes over.... All in all, one of the top appliances in my kitchen, buy one and you will definitely not regret it.

-Continue reading..

One week out and very impressed

I bought this to replace a melted Nutribullet. I was worried about the difference in size and whether or not a blender would be able to achieve smooth smoothies. I needn't have worried. Everything that was claimed in the reviews I read before buying seems to hold true … I couldn't be more pleased. I don't regret the purchase at all.

-Continue reading..

Outstanding Blender. Amazing juices, fabulous cocktails.

Purchased the blender as an alternative to the Nutri Bullet - does not disappoint. Great fresh juices that blends up seeds and pips easily. Also makes the best summer cocktails making easy work of ice. Great accompaniment to the kitchen.

-Continue reading..

A must for a raw foodie

The Optimum 9200A easily out does the Ninja and Nutribullet my friends have. Nutribullet doesn't compare at all. Very happy customer. :)

-Continue reading..

Impeccable 5 star service and product! There is no other choice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I have done a lot or research into blenders. Sad to say we bought a Nutri bullet, which blew up on first use, with grey matter coming out of the bottom of it, excitement turned to being deflated and the hassle of shipping it back. Thankfully they refunded it and no one was injured… Froothie, has a great - online chat - in which I was able to ask questions. They were knowledgeable, friendly and experienced. With a good sense of humour! I didn't feel like I was talking to someone with a call centre script. The blender itself is stylish, easy to use clean and durable... I can't remember having a better all-round experience and would recommend the Optimum 9200A and Froothie hands down. Thank you!

-Continue reading..

Best investment ever!

I purchased my 9200A after extensive research and comparing many products including the Vitamix and Nutri bullet and the 30 day money back guarantee meant I had nothing to lose by trying the 9200A out…. Such a great product with so many capabilities and I can’t wait to experiment with it more and more.

-Continue reading..

Needed a kick start to better health

We researched products on the market: thermomix, nutribullet other popluar blenders and the and came out on top for all major features. We purchased one a few weeks ago and its been the kick start we needed to eating healthier and claiming better health. The kids love it too!

Makin Life easier

I was about to buy the Nutri Bulliet but I had a Ninja blender & also a stick blender & I struggled with all these & wanted something that had the power, quality and speed to do the things in the kitchen that would make life a little easier & discovered Optimum. I use it for smoothies, making soups, deserts, nut butters. and anything that requires blending. Try this you won't be disappointed!!

-Continue reading..

Worth Every Dollar!!!!!

Having previously owned a nutribullet I sold that to purchase my optimum vortex blender 9200A and I am so glad I did. I have made so many delicious things I was always unable to do in the nutribullet and the speed and power is 1000x better. Couldn't recommend it anymore.

-Continue reading..

Amazing vortex blender and service from Froothie

I originally thought a Nutribullet or Ninja would be what I would end up with but after reading review on those products I realised the quality is just not there and the price in Australian dollars is ridiculous.

-Continue reading..

My favourite kitchen appliance!

I personally looked at getting the nutribullet, ninja and vitamix. Buying from an Australian owned and operated company with a 10 year warranty definitely helped me make the right decision. 30 day hassle free returns also means you have nothing to lose. Give it a go. It will quickly become your favourite appliance.

-Continue reading..

A machine that actually works

I was, I must say a little dubious when I unpacked this machine having previously owned a Nutribullet that just up and died after 3 months. My worries were unfounded. Wow wow wow..... what an amazing machine and well worth the money.

-Continue reading..

Buy this one - MORE POWER!!!

Based on the research I did I quickly ditched the Nutribullet dream and decided I needed something better. As Jeremy Clarkson would say MORE POWER!!! We did so much research my husband became passiona te about getting a high powered vortex blender and quickly became motivated to utilise it to increase our fruit and vegetable intake.

-Continue reading..

wow..I just love it

I already had a NutriBullet and there's no comparison...why? Well for starters you can only run the bullet for a short time before it overheats... You can't put anything hot in it and it's much to small.

-Continue reading..

Optimally Perfect

Believe the reviews, don't waste time and money on other products (I have tried a few including the Nutri Bullet and Ladyship), and be assured that whilst the Optimum Vortex Blender 9200A is amazingly priced in the mid range, it offers first class service and food preparation unrivalled by no other.

-Continue reading..

Great for the whole family – and better than a nutribullet!

I was initially tempted by the concept of the nutribullet (which had lots of negative reviews when I looked into it), but am so relieved I went with froothie which is so much more versatile and appears to be of much higher quality (eg metal parts where nutribullet is plastic).

-Continue reading..

Optimum 8200 is a "Rocket" compared to the Nutri-"bullet"

I personally believe this Optimum 8200 was a blessing in disguise as i did not know it even existed only came across an add while looking at reviews about the Nutri-bullet.....

-Continue reading..

Awesome vortex blender

Never eaten so much kale in my life. Truly blitz's it and u can't noticed very smooth. Check out other brands with their plastic bits the optimum 8200 has metal where it counts and I'm sure it will last for years and years.

-Continue reading..

BIG powerful vortex blender for very little price and the BEST decision I ever made.

After initially wanting to buy a Nutribullet I decided to do some research on it and came across the Froothie site quite by accident. After reading reviews looking at the quality components and features I decided that for the same price I could forego all the unnecessary freebies of frying pans and knife sets and pay what equates to a little amount of money for a top quality product.

-Continue reading..

her name is winnie.

Its short for winning . I love this vortex blender! I almost bought a nutribullet. . But so glad I didn't this thing is powerful its sturdy it literally tales less time to clean than to blend and I love her so much I have her a name.

-Continue reading..

Awesome Vortex Blender

Purchased this vortex blender after my Nutribullet motor blew up. Smoke came out of the unit and everything. This Vortex Blender is amazing and lightyears ahead of the Nutribullet and it even cost less. I've used it for smoothies so far but am excited about all my options :)

-Continue reading..

Awesome vortex blender. Has changed our lives.

We initially thought of a NutriBullet but all the reviews and specs made the optimum a better choice. And for half the price of a vitamix you can't go wrong.

    Jacqui Edgecombe (String Fever Pty Ltd Croydon, VIC)

  • Hi Roy and the team at Athena Solutions, I would like to say that I have received my Optimum and the help and support from your team has been really reassuring. The blender has truly performed well. It blends beautifully, makes great smoothies and even hot soup. I have had a Vita-mix from my daughter while deciding which blender to purchase and the Optimum has been just as good, doing all that the Vita-mix does, so I am very happy with the result and the price is much more attractive, with the same 10 year warranty. Thanks so much
    Rosetta and Danco Ilic (Rouse Hill, NSW)

  • I would like to thank you firstly for your wonderful customer service. Right from the start you were most helpful with all information and advice I had asked for. Also I appreciate how easily contactable your company is.
    Secondly I would like to say how happy I am with the Optimum. I was previously using a standard blender that was brand new out of the box and after one month of using it, it had blown up. I make quite a lot of smoothies and needed something more durable. After using the Optimum for the first time I was so happy with how quick and easy it was. The smoothie's come out so smooth and creamy and taste great. It saves me time and makes it more appealing to use on a regular basis. I can whip things up in no time at all and I find myself wanting to make more. I absolutely love it and have been bragging about it since I got it.
    I'm drinking a smoothie as we speak that I whipped up this morning. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face this morning because I blended a whole bunch of stuff and it was so quick and easy which makes it so much more appealing as like everyone else, I'm so busy and time is so precious.
    My friend was also interested in purchasing a new blender, after seeing my new Optimum, she purchased the same one the next day. Im sure anyone who purchases the Optimum will be extremely happy as I am.
    Thank you again.
    Kind Regards
    Venesa Jovanova (Tuggeranong, ACT)

  • Dear Froothie, Thank you for organising the prompt delivery of our new Optimum blenders. We were very impressed with your great customer service and would recommend Athena Solutions without hesitation. The communication from both you and Roy was outstanding, all our queries and questions were answered promptly and it was refreshing to deal with a company with such great customer service skills.
    Gary Griffith (Floreat, WA)

  • Thank you for my blender I love it... was intending to purchase a vitamix but looking into your site I went with your blender and im very happy it does everything the vitamix would have ive made juices ,nut butters, smoothies its great we use it every day
    Amanda Ahern (Port Macquarie, NSW)

  • I Love my Optimum!! I'd like to say a big thank you for the sale of such a great machine, I love my blender so much it's had me eating so much healthier.
    Laura Exarhos (Yarralumla, ACT)

  • Hi I just received blender, It felt very light in the box and I was worried that it must be small, when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the base. Next I couldn't wait to try it out to see if it was any good, so I tried my favourite test banana milk shake, no fuss… broke up big pieces of banana with 200 ml of milk blended for 35 sec; well I am impressed, no sign at all of any residue, that's the best result I have ever had, and in only 35 seconds. Very impressed, can't wait to try cocktails this weekend.
    PS. Easy to clean, put some water in, turn on 10 seconds, tip out and drain on bench.
    Anthony Butler (Bendigo, VIC)

  • I am thrilled to let you know that the blender arrived today! It's absolutely fantastic! I really appreciate the excellent customer service I've received - I won't hesitate to recommend the Optimum or Froothie/Athena Solutions to everyone I know!
    Thanks very much for your help, Rebecca
    Rebecca and Philip Davis (Ranelagh, Tasmania)

  • Dear Roy
    I received my blender (delivered at work) on Thursday. My whole office knew it was coming - I couldn't contain my excitement in the build-up. On my lunch break I ran off to the markets and grabs some vegetable and fruit ingredients to blend. The anticipation was high. I blended two juices to share with my colleagues; one an incredible Popeye drink of cucumber, green apple, ginger, mint, lime and spinach, the other papaya, mango, grapes and mint. Both were delicious and amazingly smooth in texture.
    I couldn't wait to get it home and try blending with ice. Once home I did another vegetable juice, a fruit frappe and a Freddo Espresso. Now if you don't know what this is there's a picture below. Simply a shot or two of espresso, sugar or honey and ice blended smooth. Amazing!
    I'm chuffed with the Optimum and can't wait to try more recipes! So please send me the PDF as it's available.
    I'm yet to try grounding our coffee beans or making almond paste but I will and report back on how it goes. The almond paste will be a special one if I nail it. It's inspired by Amalou - a spread made from Argan nuts in Morocco - the same nuts that are pressed for cosmetic Moroccan oil. It has nuts, cinnamon and I think tahini in it.
    So thank you very much.
    Tina Loppacher (Haymarket, NSW)

  • Yeah, so far it's great. I used it the very first day to make a composite nut butter of almonds, cashews and brazil nuts. And I did all that on the lowest speed. I liked the way the vortex actually moved the entire viscous mix up the sides and down the centre until it was all smooth. There are other makes that won't do that with viscous pastes as parts get stuck on the walls and corners.
    Andrew Healey (Mansfield, Queensland)

  • Hi Mario,
    Yes all good. I am impressed with the blender .. it's more like what I wanted compare to the previous mach

  • Introduction

    Froothie is the sole distributor of the Optimum© Blender in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and most recently Singapore. The Optimum brand is a collaboration of various well-respected manufacturers and suppliers, as well as Optimum Appliance's exclusive factory in Taiwan, made using the highest-quality parts designed to outlast and outperform expectations.

    What makes a great blender is the quality of the parts used in the manufacturing process. Optimum prides itself for attention to detail, no inroads to cut costs jeopardising the quality and durability of the machine. This is demonstrated by the unrivalled 10-year warranty supported by Australia-wide service centres.

    The commercial-grade Optimum is sponsored and used by various organisations and franchises, having appeared on various media channels including Channel 7, Channel 9, USA Herald, Indy Posted and Segment gaining recognition as one of Australia's most respected brands. Click here to view 3rd party verified testimonials, and here to watch our customers - Froothie TV.

    The blender comes with a unique No Questions Asked 1-Month Money Back Guarantee, where we organise and pay for the return of the product if unsatisfied, further demonstrating our confidence in the blender's quality and performance.


  • Motor

    The most important component of a blender is the power of the motor. The Optimum 9200A has an extraordinary 3.5 Horse Power motor able to easily withstand the toughest ingredients and outlast most other domestic blenders. The Optimum can quickly and easily emulsify fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and ice into a silky smooth texture which can be used to make soups, ice cream, nut butters and sauces. At a ground-breaking speed the Optimum 9200A can also be used to grind grains and crush ice.

    For Commercial Use, unlike other purely domestic blenders, the powerful commercial-grade motor of the Optimum 9400 can easily withstand the heavy-duty use of juice bars and cafes. At 2,611 Watts, making smoothies and milkshakes is a simple easy task for this durable commercial blender. The Carbon Brush self-compensating motor makes for not only an efficient use of energy, but also a quieter blending experience that cannot be offered by most other high performance blenders. What's more is that because the motor cools better, it also lasts longer.

  • Blades

    The Optimum's blade assembly, a custom-alloy assemblage of special stainless steel manufactured to its finest in Japan and Taiwan, was purpose built for a quicker, smoother and more effective synthesis of ingredients. While most blenders have a 2 or 4-blade assembly, the Optimum consists of a unique 6-blade assembly, allowing it to blend even the thickest of foods. An additional 2 down-angled blades are designed to prevent any dense foods from getting jammed and creating a vacuum at the bottom of the jug.

    The assembly is securely bolted to a shaft which connects to the bottom blade gear - a feature which then acts as the point of connection for the drive socket when the fully assembled jar and blade set is placed atop the Optimum motor. The six blades are a multipurpose assemblage allowing the Optimum's user to combine both wet and dry ingredients with both ease and efficiency. This superior and multi-faceted blade extends the capabilities of the Optimum far beyond the realms of other competitors, and makes for an otherwise unmatched blending experience.

  • Durability

    While ordinary blenders have a fan motor that runs at maximum power at all times, leading to rapid motor burn out, the Optimum uses a proprietary carbon brush motor optimised to only use the power demanded - so you get a motor life of decades rather than months. This component is one reason Froothie offers clients the option for a 10-Year Warranty, supported by Athena Solutions Pty Ltd as well as the manufacturer Optimum Appliances Australia.

    In addition to such feats, the Optimum's motor has an overload protection fault switch, ensuring that the motor is protected against overload damage. This goes above and beyond the overheat protection thermos found on most commercial grade blenders, as it means one can continue blending without having to first wait for the motor to cool down after overheating and switching off. And with a technology unrivalled by other high performance blending machines, the Optimum's Carbon Brush motor is the ultimate in blending motorisation for both those who are interested in its use within a commercial setting and/or a personal one.

    Recent tests have also shown the Optimum to be quieter than competition with a noise level of only 80-85 decibels, a very important feature when being used in a family home or a quiet café/restaurant.

  • Optimum vs. Vitamix

    The Vitamix TNC 5200, as well as other Vitamix models, is a high-quality blender with a very strong reputation. Competing with such a brand on a global stage is difficult to say the least, especially for a new entrant in the industry.

    To counter this disadvantage, Optimum© has teamed up with globally recognised manufacturers to create a truly unique and powerful blender, while also providing clients the best assurance possible: A 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, No Questions Asked, with free return postage. This has led to tremendous success for the Optimum brand with demand highly exceeding all expectations.

    At the top of this page you will see a factual comparison between the Vitamix TNC 5200 and the Optimum. It is for you to decide which blender to purchase. If you have any questions we will be more than happy to offer you honest advice, simply contact us here. We can assure you of one thing: Anything the Vitamix can make, whether that is a hot soup, a green smoothie or smooth nut butter, the Optimum can also achieve with no hassles.

  • Commercial Use

    Trusted by juice bars and cafes around the country, including franchises such Wendy's and Gloria Jeans, the Optimum blender has cemented its position as a durable commercial appliance manufactured by world-class factories (ISO9000 and ISO9001 certified) using the highest-quality parts.

    The Optimum is designed to consistently mix the most popular drinks, unattended, in a matter of seconds. The three automatic mixing programs allow you to blend almost any drink at the touch of a button. Each program combines the right speed and timing to produce perfectly blended and homogenised drinks with no icy chunks.

    The Optimum is equipped with a self-compensating energy-efficient motor which can reach a power of 2,611 Watt and a staggering speed .
