Discover more about specific components of the Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen) Vortex Blender below.
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.
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.
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 5 years domestic or optional 10 years domestic 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.
