Affectionately friendly, independent online popular lifestyle hub that curates the discovery of cool, interesting & unique product ideas.
A simple uncluttered touch interface is for many the unique selling point of the Optimum G.21 Platinum Series blender. Whilst this is a cutting-edge, effective and clean control input, the new sleek base design and jar, that from our experience resists the need for a tamper, are also important innovations. Furthermore, the powerful 2,611 watt motor, when coupled with that new jar design, works powerfully for you - creating a blender equipped for every task you put in it. This blender is thus destined for regular use at home or even within commercial premises……’’ To read more

Things I REALLY like about the Froothie Optimum G2.1 Blender
It’s really, really good at its job. It blends effortlessly and has transformed my cooking
It’s simple with one jug which is easy to remove (no locking or twisting), a well fitting lid and easy to use controls
I don’t have to remove the blades to clean it. One drop of washing up liquid, some warm water, switch it on and it is its own personal dishwasher – excellent.
IT MAKES HOT SOUP (did I say that already?!)
Things I don’t like about the Froothie Optimum G2.1 Blender
The name is a bit of a mouthful
That’s it really

Unlike the other Froothie blenders the
has a LED touch screen panel, which looks rather swish and is easy to use. This 6 blade power blender is suitable for home and commercial use. It has 6 preset buttons. The preset buttons allows the machine to vary the power it uses when it needs it. This means the motor will last longer. Like the other Froothie blenders, it's easy to clean. I just give it a quick rinse if I'm about to make something else and if I'm finished with it I pour some hot water from the kettle (about 12 cm) then a few drops of washing liquid and blend for a few seconds, then pour out the soapy liquid and rinse with fresh water. The outside just gets a quick wipe. It's one of the best things about my blender, well apart from it's convenience and power. What can I say? Loving it!......To read more Click Here”

"In the past five years, I have tried several blenders and food processors and never really had satisfying results. So I ended up buying many different types of blenders……..Fast forward to 2016 – When I was sent the new and shiny high-speed
Optimum G.21 Platinum blender
to test and review, the very first thing I wanted to try was making an idli batter with a home made coconut chutney. I am delighted to announce that the results are really very satisfying. The 6 blade assembly makes it very easy to grind grains so my soaked rice and urad dal mixture reached the right consistency in no time! To read more

A few weeks back I received something I have been lusting after for a while – A
Froothie Optimum G2.1 Blender.
A hunk of a machine that can blitz in seconds, pulverise stones to mere dust, make hot soup, and tackle any nut butter. With a mega 2,611 watt motor (with a 10 year warranty) the
is something every kitchen needs. I have been waiting to use it for weeks, and now the time had come. It took mere seconds to blitz all my mix into the smoothest of smoothies….To read moreClick Here

Introducing the new
Froothie Optimum G2.1 Blender
, a sophisticated high quality blender that can grind nuts into butter and milk, make sauces and hot soups using friction heat, and even whip up smoothies and slushies. This silver machine touched down in my kitchen last month and I’ve been putting it through its paces with excellent results. It is so simple to use with its automatic 6 preset programs. The LED touchscreen lights up when the appliance is switched on. You then choose which program you want and hit start, it’s that easy. There is also a pulse button and you can choose manual mode by pressing the speed and time settings and pick your desired speed/time. I started first with a banana coconut smoothie and I’m delighted to report that the end result was delicious and satisfying…..To read more

The Froothie Optimum G2.1
blender is beautiful. It’s sleek and shiny and has a touchscreen with six pre-set programmes for fruit, grinding nuts and seeds, soup, nut milk, sorbet and sauces. Wait! Did I say soup? It makes soup? Yes, it does make soup but it’s not a soup maker in the traditional sense as it doesn’t have any heating elements inside it; rather it creates heat by the friction of the blades. I haven’t tried it myself yet to make soup, but I’ve used it to blend soup made on the hob (recipes Here
and it’s resulted in the smoothest soup I’ve ever tasted…… To read more

I had heard so many great things about it but have to say it is even better than I hoped for. It’s powerful, easy to use, easy to clean and can be used for so many things! Not just smoothies and soups but sauces, nut milks, dough, ice cream and more. It also has a “grind” function for nuts, coffee beans and food prep. The possibilities are endless…As soon as I opened the instruction manual and saw there was a “nut milk” setting AND a nut milk bag – I knew exactly what I was going to try first. Nutella milk!

I admit that I have always been a fan of the Vitamix’s simplicity.But the Froothie Optimum G2.1 is SLICK. The LED touch panel is,in two words, super cool…I’ve been using the Froothie Optimum G2.1 several times daily for the last three months. Andrew and I use it at least a combined 3 times daily for our pre- and post-workout smoothies. We also use it regularly to grind spices,
baba ganoush, raw cheeses and
the list goes on. Here we are making
a Mexican blend of spices and nuts – the Froothie Optimum G2.1 handles it with aplomb!.....To read more

What I really loved about this Froothie blender was it’s simplicity and elegance on the worktop, and that there’s no need to click, twist, or turn the jug onto the base, which I don’t know about you, but it drives me insane! The jug simply sits in place (I think by use of a magnet but don’t quote me on this) and has a super easy pourable spout too so no mess afterward! It’s also relatively easy to clean and maintain unlike other food processors.... You can use this bad boy for pretty much anything – I’ve used it as a food processor to make my awesome
Paleo and Vegan Nutella
, energy balls, cookie dough, soups, dips, to grind nuts into nut flours, and of course nut milk. I’ve also used it to make smoothies, nice cream, and of course my beloved cup of Bulletproof Coffee….To read more
