    • Nut butters Chocolate hazelnut, peanut butter, almond butter... you name it! The Optimum will make the most delicious preservative-free nut butters, using only one ingredient.

Please note repair centres are available around UK if any urgent maintenance is required.

  • Efficient and Durable Proprietary Carbon Brush Motor: The Optimum's unique motor varies electricity consumption based on the power required. This allows the blender to outlast most competition with no breakdowns or hassles along the way.

  • Stainless Steel 6-blade assembly: Equipped with Japanese-made blades, the Optimum can pulverize the thickest ingredients with no hassles and no struggle.

  • Intelligent Overload Protection: For extra durability, The Optimum has a built in sensor which automatically switches off the motor when excess usage is detected, prolonging the Optimum's operating life while pre-empting and avoiding breakdowns. If the blender should ever trip - simply switch it back on.

  • Reputation: Used in juice bars, cafes and franchises around UK and abroad, the Optimum has proven itself as a quality high-end commercial blender, gaining the confidence of business owners around the world.

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.

    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….

"I've tried now a number of these high-speed-blenders and have decided on the one I love, now recommend highly and also sell: The Optimum 9400.

“Just an update....my Optimum 9400 was delivered about a month ago and has been used just about every day. Mostly I make fruit/veg smoothies but looking forward to getting more adventurous. I was a little worried about the initial cash outlay but very glad I took the plunge. The power of this baby is amazing!”
“Hi Froothie team, just received my 9400 blender have used it already using a recipe from the book that came with the blender. An amazing blender thank you for your great service and product. Ian Howell.”

“Thank you so much for the amazing service so close to Christmas! The 'Christmas smoothie bar' for breaky was a huge success. The actual blender is incredible- fast, powerful and makes everything very smooth. We now have daily smoothies and the kids in particular love them. Thanks Again!!”
“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)

Fantastic Blender!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Apr 04, 2016

This vortex blender is fantastic! Easy to clean, chops, blends, purees perfectly. Recently I mistakenly purchased teff seeds rather than flour - no problem with my Optimum as I just tipped them in the jug and a few seconds later, I had flour!

Redefined my kitchen

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 30, 2016, viewed 177 times

My wife is a full-time post-grad student and I work a busy office job so we have little time to cook. On top of that, we can't afford some of the vegan products sold in the grocery stores here in New Zealand. After owning and selling our beloved Vitamix Pro 500 we thought we'd never be able to afford one again and wouldn't ever lower our standards. Then a friend showed us her Optimum blender and explained that it's everything you need in a high-powered blender but at about half the cost of Vitamix and Blendtec…

Pulverized everything!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 23, 2015

I've owned a magic bullet for 2yrs and use it almost daily. My little boy loves smoothies (and me) so was keen to hide all sorts of good vegies in there but disappointingly lots of lumps - even bananas. Much research into this blender and saw in comparison to Vitamix it was rating much higher (and Froothie are having an end of financial year sale - yes). Made my first green smoothie today (kale , apple, carrot, pineapple & mint). I'm not kidding in 20secs it was blitzed to smitherines,,,not one lump. My son didn't appreciate the sound but wow, I'm so impressed. Seriously one happy camper :)

Review from the Raw Food Mum

As much as we love our Vitamix it is a high price point item for those starting out on a healthy journey with their families and this was my concern as I promote raw food for families. For some families purchasing a blender over a 0 price point is just not going to happen, which means that entering the world of green smoothies and raw food can be a bit limiting. I wanted to find a blender that I could stock in my online store that matched the Vitamix with quality and a blender that families could actually afford. I also wanted to make sure that by putting my name behind something .. that these blenders would cut it especially knowing how we use them! HERE ARE FEW MORE REASONS WHY I LOVE THE OPTIMUM BLENDERS ….

Review from Choice

The Vitamix and Optimum both allow you to create endless amounts of healthy, nutritious foods. Their powerful motors allow them to handle heavy loads better than most standard blenders. In comparison to the blenders we’ve tested, the Vitamix is up there with the better scoring models, and would make our What to Buy list. Following the re-test of the Optimum, it too would make our What to Buy list

Better than my Vitamix

It is every bit as good as claimed. We bought this to replace our Vitamix. We haven't been disappointed with our purchase and have found it better than our Vitamix.

Optimum Better than Vitamix

Performance wise, they were on the same level. If anything, the Optimum 9400 slightly out performed the Vitamix. We were actually quite impressed

Just Amazing

Before you go out and spend a 00 on and in my opinion a inferior blender the American Vitamix you should do yourself a favor and try the 9400 Beast you wont be disappointed especially at half the cost and twice the warranty.

And the winner is...

I spent hours each night studying YouTube videos and it came down to 2 blenders,Vitamix or Optimum.At the end of the day the optimum 9400 looked to be the superior machine so I purchased it!! Literally the best thing I have ever spent my money on!!

Froothie/Optimum VS Vitamix

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.

Amazing machine!

I was looking at getting a Vitamix to start my journey to good health. After doing some research I stumbled upon Froothie and the Optimum 9400. Saw the videos and specifications and decided I would bite the bullet and buy one. It is a fantastic machine!

Optimum user review

I have now used the blender for all the recipes I made with Vitamix. I am pleasantly surprised and unequivocally convinced the Optimum 9400 has the same result and build quality as the Vitamix. The longer blades were also very effective for grinding, and with the additional speed the job was done quicker than my Vitamix in some cases (note I never purchased the Vitamix dry jug which could have a similar result when grinding to the Optimum). Smoothies both had the same great texture, everything blended in seconds.

-Continue reading..

Great Value!

I had always wanted to buy a vitamix but am so glad I found the Optimum instead. It is more powerful (my friend has one for me to compare), also easy to use and clean.

RIP the old blenders

Excellent value for the price (for something that, in my opinion, beats the Vitamix in every way), and it does the job.

I am so pleased with our Optimum 9400. I researched for 2 years before choosing the the Optimum over the American made Vitamix. There's no comparison between the two blenders. The quality surpasses all blenders of its kind.

The Optimum 9499

I am thrilled with my Optimum 9400, it is fast efficient and makes the worlds best smoothies. In my opinion this is the absolute best quality machine for the money, I think it is a much superior blender than the Kitchen Aid, Vitamix, Magimix and the Breville models in the same or higher price category.

Optimum 9400 - the Life Saver

Decided to look for Vitamix and came across this. After comparing and reviewing, found the Optimum 9400 is in par of not a little better so decided to give it a shot. Chat to them online, manage to get a small freebie and received the goods promptly. They seem to be really efficient in their customer service.Tried it and boy it works.

Best Ever Blender

I came across the froothie website and saw that it looked the same and can do all the same things, and that is has even has more impressive specifications than a Vitamix. This is a quality product that is designed to last as it actually allows you to select a 10 year warranty on it (I chose a 5yr warranty). I really love this machine and it is just so easy to clean and maintain - you just basically rinse it out and there are no hidden areas that trap food - so simple. Everything that is said about it is true.

Relief after many hours of searching the internet and trying to compare to other brands like vitamix to no avail. I use it every day!

Use it every day

I have been holding out for a vitamix but a friend told me to buy this one. When i received my 9400 I made my daily green smoothy as was really happy. Tasted delicious and blended smooth. I am trying to go more raw vegan so I make dips, sauces, and lots of banana ice cream. ( frozen bananas only - so yummy )

Optimum 9400 blender is the shizz!

I needed a blender as my kenwood was not belnding the kale up finely enough for the green smoothies I like to make so I did a lot of research looking at vitamix, ninja etc etc. I finally ended up settling on this one due to the manufacture and also the price.)

What a great product!

I spent a while searching and comparing different products on the market, even considering the Vitamix and the Blentech (Both reputable brands). I luckily stumbled across a few Youtube clips and forums showcasing an Australian blender range by Froothie… Thank you Froothie, the product is simply awesome. The exceptional design, quality and power of the Optimum 9400 at an affordable price makes it hard to beat. I can quite confidently say the blender is on par if not better than the leading blenders on the market. If anyone is looking for a great quality Australian owned blender with excellent customer service then I highly recommend the Optimum 9400 by Froothie.

Don't consider ANYTHING else

I am a hard working professional and was tossing up between a vitamix and one of these. It wasn't until I compared the specifications I realised that I was getting MORE for LESS. This machine works harder, is equally durable, and is quieter that your name="products:view_main_info",000AUD + vitamix machines.

Terrific Blender!

It does everything a Vitamix can do, and more. It has become one of the most used appliances in our house, along with the kettle and the toaster!

Excellent value!

Like many others I'd had my eye on a Vitamix for a long time but couldn't justify the expense. The Optimum fit my budget and is a great product, I couldn't be happier.

Wow that's a good blenders

The blender is about 1/2 the price of the leading brand (Vitamix) that many of my friends own and as far as I can tell is quieter and a better blender.. So less money, Australian owned and a better blender..

Amazing blender and service from Froothie

So I thought a Vitamix was my only option if I wanted a machine to last more than a year or two at the most. I am just over the moon with my Optimum - not only can it blend anything that the other high powered blenders can, it does it at a realistic price, has a 10 year warranty, and the service that I received from Brian was right up there with the best I have ever received as a customer

As I mentioned to the Froothie team I was sceptical and ready to be biased against the Optimum, I have wanted a Vitamix for years but put off by the price.All I can say is I am delightfully and totally sold. This machine does everything it states and then some - silky smooth green smoothies, Amazing nut cheeses and raw desserts, easy nut milks, yummy nut butters

Very good

We purchased an Optimum 9400 about 2 months ago and used it daily since. I would have preferred a Vitamix, but at double the cost it is not good value for money.

Review from Health Yeah

I've been through a fair few blenders in my time and there have been some highs and lows. There was the shall-not-be-named Briscoes blender that catapulted smoothie all over my kitchen as I lifted the jug from the base. The blender that obliterated my spatula. The one that shimmied across the bench when it was on so you had to keep all hands on it. These blenders suited my banana berry smoothie habit just fine, but when I discovered green smoothies, plant-based and raw meals, I felt an upgrade was in order.

Love my new blender!

I had a nutribullet that blew up after 1 month. After extensive research (including looking into buying a vitamix) i purchased the Optimum 9400 … My friend has a vitamix and the quality is identical. As an added bonus it is actually quieter than the vitamix! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a blender.

Search for the 'right' blender

I have been searching for a high speed blender for some time, but was unable to afford a Vitamix - which is so much touted. I read a review about blenders on Wellness Warriors blog and from there I learnt about the Optimum 9400. I followed up through Froothie and found this particular model on sale. I can honestly say it is all it says it is. I am delighted with it and now make creamy smoothies on a daily basis. Plus nut butters, nut mylks, pesto, etc. I do not regret my decision at all and I sincerely highly recommend this Optimum high speed blender.

Kick-starting my family’s health with the Optimum 9400 (2ND GEN)

Originally I was thinking of purchasing the Vitamix but luckily hubby came to the rescue as usual and saved us not only money but also kickstarted our health with the Optimum 9400! We love the Optimum 9400 so much that we decided to purchase my parents one for my dad’s 60th this year, let’s just say they can’t stop raving about it. It’s so easy to use and assemble, and washing up is just a r inse away! Thanks Optimum for an awesome product!

I use the 9400 (2ND GEN) twice a day!

I use this blender for smoothies, soups, sauces and desserts, and am most impressed by the speed and power, as well as by how well it handles regular use. It's easy to clean, and, after six months, shows no signs of wear and tear. It's the only blender I've used that deals well with berry seeds, and completely blends tomato skin, ginger and other root vegetables (thick carrots and raw beets). If you can afford it (and it's so much cheaper than a Vitamix, with), I highly recommend the Optimum 9400.

A wonderful Aussie product and warranty

I bought the Optimum 9400 as a separate blender to my Thermomix instead of buying a second bowl, and I'm so glad I did. Initially, I did a raw food course and embraced a 'real' food way of eating. It's not enough to mash the food- all the goodness such as vitamins, minerals etc need to be retained to keep your body healthy on a cellular level. The same applies to healing your body, and I believe the Optimum cuts food without bruising. I use it all the time for smoothies (better than a Thermomix and equal to a Vitamix), and for dips, dressings, sauces, shredding, milling, batters - and the list goes on. It saves heaps of money - no more store-bought goods with artificial flavouring, chemicals, anti-fungal, anti-goodness rubbish. The Optimum 9400 is a fantastic appliance.

A Great Healthy Addition To Any Kitchen

My previous blender just couldn't do the job properly and I had to return it to the store twice for replacement parts. Not willing to spend the 00 or so on a Vitamix, I researched online and found the Froothie Optimum 9400 for a fraction of the price and a great performer. I love it's large jug capacity, it is easy to assemble, clean and use and especially blends my green smoothies perfectly in no time at all. I received great service, ordered it online Thursday and it was delivered Friday. Thank you Froothie for making my life easier :)

Can't live without it!

After many months researching blenders, my final decision was either a Vitamix or Optimum 9400. It came down to quality and price - Optimum won. Being a Mum of five children, healthy eating and living is vital. My whole family use the Optimum with ease. From sauces to nut butter's, nut milk's, smoothies, soups, chopping and making my own flours. I love it! I'd be lost without it...
