  • As a vegan I love simple and healthy smoothies with whole fruits, nuts, dates and greens. My previous blender could only make these ingredients into a rough-ie! The Optimum blends them perfectly in no time. Plus it looks great, its not noisy and its incredibly easy to clean. The Optimum rocks!
    Jacqui Edgecombe (String Fever Pty Ltd Croydon, VIC)

  • Hi Roy and the team at Athena Solutions, I would like to say that I have received my Optimum and the help and support from your team has been really reassuring. The blender has truly performed well. It blends beautifully, makes great smoothies and even hot soup. I have had a Vita-mix from my daughter while deciding which blender to purchase and the Optimum has been just as good, doing all that the Vita-mix does, so I am very happy with the result and the price is much more attractive, with the same 10 year warranty. Thanks so much
    Rosetta and Danco Ilic (Rouse Hill, NSW)

  • I would like to thank you firstly for your wonderful customer service. Right from the start you were most helpful with all information and advice I had asked for. Also I appreciate how easily contactable your company is.
    Secondly I would like to say how happy I am with the Optimum. I was previously using a standard blender that was brand new out of the box and after one month of using it, it had blown up. I make quite a lot of smoothies and needed something more durable. After using the Optimum for the first time I was so happy with how quick and easy it was. The smoothie's come out so smooth and creamy and taste great. It saves me time and makes it more appealing to use on a regular basis. I can whip things up in no time at all and I find myself wanting to make more. I absolutely love it and have been bragging about it since I got it.
    I'm drinking a smoothie as we speak that I whipped up this morning. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face this morning because I blended a whole bunch of stuff and it was so quick and easy which makes it so much more appealing as like everyone else, I'm so busy and time is so precious.
    My friend was also interested in purchasing a new blender, after seeing my new Optimum, she purchased the same one the next day. Im sure anyone who purchases the Optimum will be extremely happy as I am.
    Thank you again.
    Kind Regards
    Venesa Jovanova (Tuggeranong, ACT)

  • Dear Froothie, Thank you for organising the prompt delivery of our new Optimum blenders. We were very impressed with your great customer service and would recommend Athena Solutions without hesitation. The communication from both you and Roy was outstanding, all our queries and questions were answered promptly and it was refreshing to deal with a company with such great customer service skills.
    Gary Griffith (Floreat, WA)

  • Thank you for my blender I love it... was intending to purchase a vitamix but looking into your site I went with your blender and im very happy it does everything the vitamix would have ive made juices ,nut butters, smoothies its great we use it every day
    Amanda Ahern (Port Macquarie, NSW)

  • I Love my Optimum!! I'd like to say a big thank you for the sale of such a great machine, I love my blender so much it's had me eating so much healthier.
    Laura Exarhos (Yarralumla, ACT)

  • Hi I just received blender, It felt very light in the box and I was worried that it must be small, when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the base. Next I couldn't wait to try it out to see if it was any good, so I tried my favourite test banana milk shake, no fuss… broke up big pieces of banana with 200 ml of milk blended for 35 sec; well I am impressed, no sign at all of any residue, that's the best result I have ever had, and in only 35 seconds. Very impressed, can't wait to try cocktails this weekend.
    PS. Easy to clean, put some water in, turn on 10 seconds, tip out and drain on bench.
    Anthony Butler (Bendigo, VIC)

  • I am thrilled to let you know that the blender arrived today! It's absolutely fantastic! I really appreciate the excellent customer service I've received - I won't hesitate to recommend the Optimum or Froothie/Athena Solutions to everyone I know!
    Thanks very much for your help, Rebecca
    Rebecca and Philip Davis (Ranelagh, Tasmania)

  • Dear Roy
    I received my blender (delivered at work) on Thursday. My whole office knew it was coming - I couldn't contain my excitement in the build-up. On my lunch break I ran off to the markets and grabs some vegetable and fruit ingredients to blend. The anticipation was high. I blended two juices to share with my colleagues; one an incredible Popeye drink of cucumber, green apple, ginger, mint, lime and spinach, the other papaya, mango, grapes and mint. Both were delicious and amazingly smooth in texture.
    I couldn't wait to get it home and try blending with ice. Once home I did another vegetable juice, a fruit frappe and a Freddo Espresso. Now if you don't know what this is there's a picture below. Simply a shot or two of espresso, sugar or honey and ice blended smooth. Amazing!
    I'm chuffed with the Optimum and can't wait to try more recipes! So please send me the PDF as it's available.
    I'm yet to try grounding our coffee beans or making almond paste but I will and report back on how it goes. The almond paste will be a special one if I nail it. It's inspired by Amalou - a spread made from Argan nuts in Morocco - the same nuts that are pressed for cosmetic Moroccan oil. It has nuts, cinnamon and I think tahini in it.
    So thank you very much.
    Tina Loppacher (Haymarket, NSW)

  • Yeah, so far it's great. I used it the very first day to make a composite nut butter of almonds, cashews and brazil nuts. And I did all that on the lowest speed. I liked the way the vortex actually moved the entire viscous mix up the sides and down the centre until it was all smooth. There are other makes that won't do that with viscous pastes as parts get stuck on the walls and corners.
    Andrew Healey (Mansfield, Queensland)

  • Hi Mario,
    Yes all good. I am impressed with the blender .. it's more like what I wanted compare to the previous machine.. this one is very much like the vitamix.
    nice to have some programs but good to be able to just turn it on and let it run for a long or short as I like. blending is very smooth.. thanks again for all your help
    Kurt Vogt (Caringbah, NSW)

  • This blender is Fantastic. A friend of my wife's has the VITAMIX 5200, and she was very impressed with the quality and the price!
    Michael Connolly-Greig (West Pymble, NSW)

  • Because my partner works away from home for longish periods and we are so happy with the Optimum we are buying another one so we both have one to use every day!
    Fiona Crowe (Nedlands, WA)

  • Hi Roy,
    Just letting you know I LOVE the our blender. I couldn't believe how quick it was delivered! I basically make green smoothies for breakfast since being inspired by the literature that is around. I must say I am a complete convert! The smoothies are smooth and creamy and my breakfast takes less than 30 seconds to blend.
    Yours in Froothie heaven,
    Harlene Hercules (Ormond, Victoria NSW)

  • Morning Mirna,
    WOW!!!!!!
    I just made my first smoothie which had 300mls sugar free Cottees cordial, one scoop of Max's Super Shred Protein Powder and 2 handfuls of Homemade Fruit Salad......SERIOUSLY AMAZING PIECE OF MACHINERY!!!!! If I say so myself, one of the best smoothies I've had in my life!!!!
    Well worth the wait!!!!!

  • Blending Stones in Seconds!

  • Introduction

    Froothie is the sole distributor of the Optimum© 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 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. Click here to view 3rd party verified testimonials, and here to watch our customers - Froothie TV.

    The 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 blender's quality and performance.


  • Motor

    The most important component of a 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 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.

  • Blades

    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.

  • 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 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!

  • Optimum vs. Vitamix

    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.

    At the top of this page you will see a factual comparison between the Vitamix TNC 5200 and the Optimum. It is for you to decide which blender to purchase. If you have any questions we will be more than happy to offer you honest advice, simply call us on 1300 309 900 or contact us here. We can assure you of one thing: Anything the Vitamix can make, whether that is a hot soup, a green smoothie or smooth nut butter, the Optimum can also achieve with no hassles.

  • Commercial Use

    Trusted by juice bars and cafes around the country, including franchises such Wendy's and Gloria Jeans, the Optimum 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 2,238 Watt and a staggering speed of 44,000 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 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 blender.

    The Optimum, which already runs quieter than most competition, can also be purchased with a sound-reducing cover which can reduce the noise level to under 20 decibels, significantly lower than most competition.

  • The Manufacturers

    The Optimum© factory is based in Taiwan, Australian-owned; more information here: www.optimum-appliances.com. Most parts are made in-house, with some parts imported from Europe and assembled by hand with precision technology and attention to detail. Each blender is tested for 5 minutes before being sent to Froothie for sale to customers, ensuring strict Quality Control measures.

    Optimum Appliances has also teamed up with 3rd party manufacturers with decades-long reputations responsible for manufacturing parts for some of the industry's most-respected brands.

    All manufacturers make use of state of the art equipment and engineering, with most parts being of either German, Taiwanese or Japanese origin. So much is certainly evident within the high grade stainless steel used for several of the Optimum's components, as well as in the self-compensating and highly energy efficient motor.

    While you will see many similar copy-cat blenders, the Optimum is a high-quality machine manufactured using high-quality parts designed to withstand domestic as well as commercial use.

  • Our Promise

    Once you make the decision to purchase a blender, whether it is an Optimum or otherwise, our relationship with you does not end there. Blenders are a unique and sophisticated appliance, and to make the most of it you must receive the appropriate advice and recommendations.

  • Summary

Optimum’s growth as a globally recognised brand competing with the likes of Vitamix and Blendtec has been astonishing, having teamed up with some of the industry's best manufacturers to design an affordable quality machine able to withstand the sophistication of a kitchen and the beating of a juice bar, lasting customers a lifetime and providing juice bars with a reliable machine for making constantly smooth drinks.
