Everything promise has been delivered (customer rated 5/5)

After much umming & ahhing, the Optimum 9200 was decided upon, ordered & promptly delivered. So happy with our final choice. Powerful, efficient, easy to clean. The entire family loves it! Read More...

Best by far (customer rated 5/5)

I never buy anything without first researching. Choice and online reviews were really helpful, hence my review, to help others. Buy it!! 
Bought mainly for my daughter who was rushing out the door without breakfast in the mornings, she now whizzes up a smoothie or a juice on the "go". Amongst other things I churn out hommus and other dips and come winter time soup will be a fixture on the menu at our house with the Optimum 9200.Read More...

Froothin' Amazing (customer rated 5/5)

I could not live without my 9200 Optimum blender... I was searching for a vitamix and found this instead and it has been the best blender ever! I use it every day, several times a day. I love how it is heavy duty and blends even the heaviest of smoothies and frappes. Chops nuts, makes breadcrumbs, makes soup.... It's totally 'da bomb' ... I've had it three years now and still going strong:) Awesome! Read More...

Unbeatable blender and value for money!! (customer rated 5/5)

I have owned other brands of blenders that were above the $300 threshold for a reasonable blender...... 2 of them died just outside the warranty period and the 3rd was a silver Cafe' Series that also carked it, we know the popular brand that make them. It was extremely noisy, the speed controller failed and guess what, more expensive to repair than replace. I have had the Optimum 9200 for almost a year and it's used 3 times per day, it's comparably quiet, it BLENDS very well and I couldn't be happier. It's an awesome machine and worth the few extra dollars. Read More...

Lifestyle change ! (customer rated 5/5)

Since getting my Optimum 9200, I am seriously told everyday how greet I look! It has encouraged me to up my intake of greens & drink more smoothies; I feel so revitalised & it shows. I have more control over what I eat, even making my own sugar free nut butters & milks. I actually can't remember what I did without it. So inspired that I have registered for 'the Real food Revolution weekend to learn more tricks & tips. Read More...

    I actually think the Optimum 9200 Next Gen is the best blender I have ever used. It makes light work of everything, it's super quick and super easy to use. I thought the Optimum 9400 was good, but this takes it to another level! I recommend Froothie to all my clients, over all the other high-speed blenders on the marketplace.

    Its credibility, impartiality and notoriety is clear as they receive over 100,000 unique visitors per month.

    Review :


    As blenders go the Optimum 9200 Next Generation is well thought out. The rugged plastic base, available in white, black, silver and red has a retro shaping……..


    A facelift has been applied to the control layout and functionality of the Optimum 9200 Next Gen, to modernise it. This really strikes the right balance for commercial and home usage as the controls are straight to the point, featuring an on/off power button and a continuous slab of buttons under plastic so that food debris and liquid can’t interfere with their functionality……….

    The Jar

    It’s easy to look at different blender models and just compare them on motor speed, but jar design is just as important, if not more. A poorly designed jar will leave irritatingly lacklustre results and discourage the activity of blending, due to things like the jar lodging produce or the blade spinning without actually doing anything. But rest assured, Optimum have got it right for the most part………….

    Performance & Results

    We’re big fans of the Blendtec Designer 725 blender with its single blunt blade, but it may appear that our love affair with this simplistic blade design has a challenging contender. The folks at Optimum have installed a very different six stainless steel (comparatively sharp) blade system, consisting of four blades pointing upwards and two facing down. What this design manages to achieve, in collaboration with the jar design, is unexpectedly fast vortex blending………….


    The flagship ability of the Optimum 9200 Next Generation blender is in making smoothies that achieve a high standard of consistency at speed, thanks to its capably powerful 2,611 watt motor and jar design. It also pulls off a palatable price tag in comparison to offerings from Blendtec and Vitamix at £429 (currently on sale at £329), which comes standard with a respectable six year international warranty.

    My experience –

    I have had this blender for a few weeks now and I am absolutely loving it. I have spent a lot of money over the past few years trying to find a blender that was multi-functional and was able to do everything that I needed in order to be creative in the kitchen. I have already successfully made delicious banana ice creams, nut milks and soups with this blender and I can honestly say when I first switched it on I was blown away by its power! It made me jump initially! It really can shred up anything and make it into a fine liquid. If you’re fed up of having green smoothies with lumps of kale, wanting to make ice cream but you’re blender keeps breaking, or if you want to get creative and make your own nut/seed milks and butters then I would highly recommend this blender. I know that some people are skeptical of reviews which promote a product (I am one of those people!), but I can whole-heartedly say that this is by far the most powerful and complete piece of kitchen equipment I have ever owned. The other great thing about it is that the actual jug is SO incredibly light! So you don’t need to haul around a big glass jug when you’re making recipes and smoothies. Its also fantastically easy to clean as you don’t even need to dismantle it….

“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!”
I very rarely leave reviews. Froothie are going to be the exception because their customer service & the product of theirs I bought are outstanding. I bought an Optimum 9400. I have had it about 8 days. It so efficient & the motor so, so powerful it is amazing. There was a slight chip in the lip of the lid & Froothie replaced without hesitation. The actual blender really liquifies foods to the highest standard. It's so much more easy now for me to consume raw, fresh, unprocessed foods. I find it hard to constructively express what I think of this product.
I know my health both mental & physical can only improve because this product delivers exactly what it promises. My smoothies are smooth to the tenth degree. It is also very fast to process my foods. Unlike my other (expensive) blender the Optimum seems to circulate the processing food high up into the jug, so the contents mixes extremely thoroughly. With my old one chunks just sat at the bottom & would not mix unless I added water - which was often not what I wanted to do.
It makes almond butter & milk effortlessly. It's heart warming to see a company be so truly customer orientated & to experience the proficiency of this blender. Thank you Froothie. Elizabeth
-Elizabeth Illari (Darlington, WA)
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. Read the whole review at: Girl on Greens
-Mikayla Phiefer
As a vegan I love simple and healthy smoothies with whole fruits, nuts, dates and greens. My previous blender could only make these ingredients into a rough-ie! The Optimum blends them perfectly in no time. Plus it looks great, its not noisy and its incredibly easy to clean. The Optimum rocks!
-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 7 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.
-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)
