What makes Optimum the Highest Quality & Best Performing Blender?

 

 

Material Comparison

 

Low Quality Blenders

 

Optimum 9200 - (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender

 

 

 JUG Construction

 

 

 Blade Mounting

 

Mild Steel / Low Quality Stainless

Prone to rusting due to being used in liquid.

 

Stainless Steel

Will not rust and improves life span of blade unit, reduces food contamination.

 Jug Molding

 

Many Scraps and Burrs

Inferior injection molding, creates scraps and shavings and creates sealing issues.

 

Clean Injection Mold

Smooth surface, one injection point only, decreases chances of plastic burrs breaking seal.

 Jug Build

 

Plastic Handle Design

Standard injection molded plastic handle, low cost and uncomfortable for high volume use.

 

Comfort Handle Design

Superior handle design allows for comfort use in all situations, perfect for high volume use.

 Jug Base Plate

 

Plastic Plate

PVC plate with brass fitting,degrades over time, issues caused by steel and brass contact over long period.

 

Coated Stainless Plate

Durable coated stainless steel plate with machined fitting. Coated one piece construction allows for greater lifespan.

 Blade Assembly

 

powder metallurgy

Partial stainless steel construction with mild steel fixings.

 

Stainless Steel

Complete stainless steel assembly to prevent rust and be more durable with longer life span.

 Blade Bearing

 

NBK Bearing

Low cost with short life of blade assembly, any water not cleaned from bearing will cause it to seize.

 

NMB bearing

Higher cost and longer life construction to minimize wear and stop rust, advanced DD seal for watertight operation.

 

 

 Electric Motor Assembly

 

 

 Output Shaft

 

8 mm Square

Less surface area allows drive socket to strip out easier.

 

8mm Braced

More surface area allows greater grip for the drive socket.

 Drive Socket

 

All Plastic

Small diameter mixed with all plastic design has shown reduced lifespan and difficulty in replacing. Also suffers from requiring balancing.

 

Metal Hybrid

Superior fastening, perfect for commercial applications allowing drive sockets additional and advanced lifespan.

 Power

 

3.0 HP (950W Rated Working Power)

High HP but low output at only 950W, most 3HP units are 1500W nominal output.

 

3.5 HP (1800W Rated Working Power)

High HP with high rated working power, harnessing the highest power available to the motor.

 Stator Size

 

35 mm

Smaller stator, gives less electric field for motor to generate drive

 

40mm

Gives more surface area of magnetic field to spin motor.

  • The reason I decided on the Optimum 9400 (and subsequently decided to distribute it to you guys) is that after doing my research into price, quality, versatility, after sales service, warranties and guarantees, Optimum came out on top for me." Read the whole review at: Health YeahHannah Horton

  • Froothie, you guys are awesome. Working in retail, we rarely get compliments when we give exceptional customer service. But you guys are more than deserving. I placed my order for the Optimum 9400 on the 23rd. I was so excited to see a package arrive the very next day, Christmas Eve! Love my new blender, makes fantastic mango smoothies!Chantae Quinlan

  • I would recommend this blender to anyone, as you can make almost anything. Whether you want to increase your raw plant based foods, make your own sauces, create yummy desserts or even make some fruity cocktails then this machine is for you.
