    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

  • Chantae Quinlanarrow

    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
