Froothie is the sole distributor of the Optimum© Vortex Blender in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and most recently Singapore. The Optimum brand is a collaboration of various well-respected manufacturers and suppliers, as well as Optimum Appliance's exclusive factory in Taiwan, made using the highest-quality parts designed to outlast and outperform expectations.
What makes a great Vortex blender is the quality of the parts used in the manufacturing process. Optimum prides itself for attention to detail, no inroads to cut costs jeopardising the quality and durability of the machine. This is demonstrated by the unrivalled 10-year warranty supported by Australia-wide service centres.
The commercial-grade Optimum is sponsored and used by various organisations and franchises, having appeared on various media channels including Channel 7, Channel 9, USA Herald, Indy Posted and Segment gaining recognition as one of Australia's most respected brands.

The Vortex blender comes with a unique No Questions Asked 1-Month Money Back Guarantee, where we organise and pay for the return of the product if unsatisfied, further demonstrating our confidence in the Vortex blender's quality and performance.
The most important component of a Vortex blender is the power of the motor. The Optimum 9400 has an extraordinary 3 Horse Power motor able to easily withstand the toughest ingredients and outlast most other domestic 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. At a ground-breaking speed of 44,000 rpm the Optimum 9400 can also be used to grind grains and crush ice.
For Commercial Use, unlike other purely domestic blenders, the powerful commercial-grade motor of the Optimum 9400 can easily withstand the heavy-duty use of juice bars and cafes. At 2,238 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 blenders. What's more is that because the motor cools better, it also lasts longer.
The Optimum's blade assembly, a custom-alloy assemblage of special stainless steel manufactured to its finest in Japan and Taiwan, was purpose built for a quicker, smoother and more effective synthesis of ingredients. While most blenders have a 2 or 4-blade assembly, the Optimum consists of a unique 6-blade assembly, allowing it to blend even the thickest of foods. An additional 2 down-angled blades are designed to prevent any dense foods from getting jammed and creating a vacuum at the bottom of the jug.
The assembly is securely bolted to a shaft which connects to the bottom blade gear - a feature which then acts as the point of connection for the drive socket when the fully assembled jar and blade set is placed atop the Optimum motor. The six blades are a multipurpose assemblage allowing the Optimum's user to combine both wet and dry ingredients with both ease and efficiency. This superior and multi-faceted blade extends the capabilities of the Optimum far beyond the realms of other competitors, and makes for an otherwise unmatched blending experience.
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 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. A newly introduced sound cover can further reduce the noise level by an additional 50% to under 40 decibels, making the Optimum the industry's quietest blender!
The Vitamix TNC 5200, as well as other Vitamix models, is a high-quality blender with a very strong reputation. Competing with such a brand on a global stage is difficult to say the least, especially for a new entrant in the industry.
To counter this disadvantage, Optimum© has teamed up with globally recognised manufacturers to create a truly unique and powerful blender, while also providing clients the best assurance possible: A 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, No Questions Asked, with free return postage. This has led to tremendous success for the Optimum brand with demand highly exceeding all expectations.
