IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - OMNIBLEND MISLEADING ADVERTISING:

Omniblend is a Chinese lower-quality blender formerly distributed by Froothie in Australia and New Zealand. Through our experiences with this product, as well as reviews in other countries, we believe the product lacks some features which other high-speed blenders available at a similar price range have. For example, our entry-level model, the Optimum 8200, has higher-quality bearings. Moreover, the price of Optimum 8200 is lower than the price of Omniblend.

 

Update 12-11-2015: Omniblend Australia has continued their aggressive and, basd on our tests, misleading marketing campaign with the new Lemon Test Comparison Videos. In all videos, Omniblend compare various well-known brands (Optimum, Vitamix, Thermomix and Blendtec) to their blender by simply blending a lemon. This simplistic approach to comparing such sophisticated multifunctional appliances should not be relied upon to measure the performance or quality of the appliance. We will be releasing comprehensive videos  demonstrating the unreliability of this comparison method.

 

Omniblend is imported to Australia from China (a factory called JTC) by a company called Omniblend Australia Pty Ltd, operating from a house in rural NSW. The business is currently conducting an aggressive campaign to target Optimum (a reputable global brand sold by Froothie in over 30 countries www.froothieinternational.com) in an attempt to sway potential Optimum customers to purchase their product. This piggy-back marketing campaign has led to many of our customers lodging a complaint regarding this conduct, and Froothie will be taking the matter further with the relevant authorities.

 

For a comparison between the Optimum and the lower quality Omniblend, click here. Below is an overview of the various Optimum Vortex Blenders we sell:

 

Optimum 8200

Our entry level model, the Optimum 8200, has a powerful 2,238 Watt motor able to outperform competitors in blending smoothies, juices, nut butters, hot soups, sorbets, nut milks, grinding and more! The Optimum 8200 has higher quality bearings and a faster motor compared to the Omniblend V.



Optimum 9400

The Optimum 9400 is considered the Rolls Royce of blenders with a very high speed and an advanced motor allowing it to outperform and rival some of the industry’s best brands. The 9400’s global reputation for quality and performance has led the model to become the preferred blender for health food pioneers around the world



Optimum 9200A (2nd Gen)

The Optimum 9200A (2nd Generation) is our most powerful and newest Vortex blender yet. Equipped with a massive 2,611 Watt motor and a staggering motor speed, the Optimum 9200 will perform all the functions of other models faster and more effectively. The pre-set timer settings and high quality parts of the 9200 make it a favourite for domestic and commercial users around the world

    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
