It can be set to low, medium or high speed and includes a pulse function……….. I’ve put it through its paces a few times and conducted a number of tests, all of which it passed with flying colours. When I made a raw chocolate and goji berry smoothie, it was impossible to detect even a tiny bit of goji berry. Our kale blended to a fine green juice and a couple of other ingredients I wasn’t sure about had similarly successful results.

And it can grind grains to make flour. But this blender can do both dry and wet ingredients in the same container, rather than you having to faff about with separate ones….."Read More

    "The Optimum 9200A Next Gen is a high-speed blender which creates delicious fruit smoothies with ease, but it doesn't stop there; I've made green smoothies and banana ice cream in it, and this blender has managed it all perfectly. My previous blender didn't cope with frozen ingredients and tougher greens very well, so I'd usually end up with annoying lumps of frozen fruit or unpleasant bits of kale in my smoothies; the Optimum 9200A, however, has no difficulty with those things at all so I end up with ultra smooth drinks every time. That's not all it does though - it also has the ability to grind nuts and grains for flour, crush ice and make nut butters, hot soups, spreads and dips! Before discovering this blender I'd been toying with the idea of buying a Vitamix for a few months (well, a year actually!) but the Optimum 9200 actually rivals the Vitamix Pro 500 in terms of performance…."Read More

    "One of the reasons I love my blender so much is because it’s so simple to clean. I have very little energy, and while I do think making sure I eat well is important, if I don’t have the energy to make something and then clean up, I’m just not going to do it. Here, all I need to do is throw my ingredients into the large 2l jug, blend, pour and enjoy. To clean, all I do is fill halfway with warm water, add a squirt of Ecover washing up liquid and blend on high for about a minute and then rinse. I’d highly recommend the Froothie Optimum 9200A blender for anyone who’s looking to get some serious blending action going on in the kitchen – it’s such a versatile piece of equipment and performs so many functions, that it is definitely invaluable to me…."Read More

    "I switched to using a high performance blender about five years ago, and while it can seem expensive to lay out so much dosh I believe it’s a worthwhile investment if you use a blender frequently, if you want to make day to day kitchen tasks easier (the smoothest hummus you’ll ever eat, easy veggie chopping, fast smoothies), and if you’re keen on making better tasting variations of products you would otherwise buy (nut butters and non dairy milks are a cinch).
    The bar was high for me since it’s not my first time owning a high performance blender, but my first impressions of the Optimum 9200A are great. It does everything my other blender does and it’s so quiet. Gone are the days of questioning if it’s appropriate to make a smoothie or soup at 2am (I live in a block of flats) when I wake up starving and don’t want to wait until real people hours to eat…."Read More

    "……So, what is a Froothie? Well, it’s a pretty neat and awesome bit of kit! I was sent a Froothie OPTIMUM 9200A NEXT GENERATION blender (RRP: £429), although if you buy one now, you can save a WHOPPING £100 and secure one of these amazing machines for only £329! The list of what you can do and make in one of these blenders is astounding…….. So far, I have made a curd and this sauce in my Froothie, and both have turned out well – with the curd being an absolute winner, as the machine cooks the eggs as it blends – that recipe will be on Lavender and Lovage in a few days. But back to today’s recipe – as you can see from the photo collage above, I simply chucked all the ingredients in the large 2 litre Froothie jug, blended the sauce for UNDER a minute and voilà, I was rewarded with a spicy, creamy and delicious enchilada sauce for all my Mexican cooking…"

    "My new Froothie 9200 is the sixth blender I have owned in less than 2 years. I’m not kidding……...This thing is a game changer. I use it so much each day and even plan my meals around what I can use the blender for! It is not just a smoothie machine – this incredibly durable and powerful machine can do so much. I use it to chop vegetables, make nut milks and creams, make date paste, grind flours, mix cake batter, even to knead bread dough and of course the most deliciously creamy smoothies in seconds. And no gradual placing ingredients, just dump it all in, press one of the really simple to use pre-programmed speed buttons (20, 35 & 45 seconds) or speed settings (high, medium, low & pulse) and voila, creamy smoothie ready to pour whilst you do other things. It’s truly a pleasure. There is no need to pre-soak nuts or seeds for blending and the specially designed blade means everything will be blended and nut butters can be whipped up in the same jar without need for a special attachment. The speed creates so much friction heat that you can actually cook ingredients in it without a special heating element! How cool is that? Simply add fresh ingredients like ripe tomatoes and seasonings and blend for a few minutes to have hot tomato soup ready! And as a bonus, it even cleans itself! Simply add hot water and a drop of dish soap and use on the 20 second function then rinse!"Read More

  • Introduction

    It doesn’t matter whether you’re a professional working in the bustle of a café or juice bar, or a busy parent creating fresh, healthy meals at home. Either way, you don’t have time to mess around: you need a blender that keeps pace with your hectic lifestyle.

    The Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender is powerful enough to meet the demands of commercial use, while being simple and affordable enough for the average family. You’ll find it in the kitchens of several franchises and organisations, as well as those of people just like you. And appearances in media that include Channel 7, Channel 9, USA Herald, Indy Posted and Segment have made Optimum® one of New Zealand’s most recognised brands.

    Crafted from the highest quality materials, the Optimum Vortex Blender is designed to significantly outperform and outlast all of its competitors. In fact, we’re so confident in its durability that we offer an optional, unrivalled 10-year warranty. Add that to our no-questions-asked, one-month money back guarantee, and it’s easy to see why the this product is a favourite in over 20 countries, including here in New Zealand.

    Discover more about specific components of the Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender below.

  • Motor

    The most important component of a vortex 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 vortex 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. This gives the blades a ground-breaking speed that grinds grains and crushes ice just as quickly and easily as it blends soft fruit

    For Commercial Use, unlike other purely domestic vortex blenders, the powerful commercial-grade motor of the Optimum 9200A 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 vortex 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 vortex blenders. What's more is that because the motor cools better, it also lasts longer.

  • Blades

    Again, the blade assembly in your Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender combines the highest quality materials with ingenious design elements that allow the end machine to outperform its competition.

    Forged from a premium-quality form of stainless steel, the custom-alloy blades in your Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender can cut through the hardiest of ingredients. And while most domestic blenders offer two (or occasionally four) blades, your Optimum Vortex Blender contains six: enough to blend thick foods like nut butters into a smooth, silky consistency.

    Two of the blades are also precisely angled to prevent dense foods from jamming and creating a vacuum in the blending jug.They’re longer too than the original the Optimum 9200 Vortex Blender, which means they can handle more difficult domestic functions, e.g. chipping or grinding thick foods. And the multi-faceted edge on each blade allows you to effortlessly combine wet and dry ingredients in a single blending mix – saving you time and energy.

  • 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 vortex 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.

  • How does it stack up? The Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender vs. the Vitamix TNC 5200

    The Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender’s closest competitor is probably the Vitamix TNC 5200. For a factual comparison of the specs of each machine, please see the table at the top of this page. However, if you’re pressed for time, you might find the following high-level comparison useful.

    Both the Vitamix TNC 5200 and the Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender are premium quality blenders with excellent reputations in the industry. Both can make a wide range of fresh, delicious foods from hot soups to green smoothies to ice-cream to nut butters.

    The advantages of the Optimum Vortex Blender, however, lie in its:

  • Commercial Use

    Trusted by juice bars and cafes around the country, including franchises such Wendy's and Gloria Jeans, the Optimum vortex 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 of 48,000 rpm. The hammer-forged stainless steel 6-blade assembly is perfect for crushing ice in seconds to make the best smoothies and milkshakes. The motor is self-compensating, leading to reduced electricity consumption allowing the vortex blender to withstand the heavy duty use of cafes and juice bars. To protect the motor from over-heating, the Optimum is also equipped with a shut-off switch ideal for juice bars seeking a long-lasting reliable vortex blender.
