I was unsure whether
I would like the optimum G2.1 after only using Vitamix for a year - I’m very happy with the blender! I use it to make smoothies in my food van. Been using it daily for 3 weeks now and it hasn't missed a beat.I am considering buying a second one!

After breaking the
jugs/motors/blades of several "cheap blenders", I decided to
invest in a high-power machine that would last. I chose the
G2.1 model over the popular Vitamix and Blendtec blenders as it was more suited to my student budget & I wanted to support an Australian company. I am so pleased with my decision
I Have Found The PERFECT Blender!

I have been using
the Optimum G2.1 blender for quite a few months now and I absolutely love it! I had always wanted a Vitamix and when it was time to replace my old blender I started my research. I was extremely surprised to find that the Optimum blenders were better than the Vitamix, much lower price and had amazing reviews.
Love this blender, it's changed my life !!!

I have had the
Optimum G2.1 for 2 months & absolutely loving it. It's cheaper & does everything the Vitamix does & is Australian made.
Better than my Vitamix
It is every bit as good as claimed. We bought this to replace our Vitamix. We haven't been disappointed with our purchase and have found it better than our Vitamix.
Optimum Better than Vitamix
Performance wise, they were on the same level. If anything,
the Optimum G2.1 slightly out performed the Vitamix. We were actually quite impressed
Before you go out and spend a $1000 on and in my opinion a
inferior blender the American Vitamix you should do yourself a
favor and try the G2.1 Beast you won't be disappointed especially at half the cost and twice the warranty.
And the winner is...
I spent hours each night studying YouTube videos and it came
down to 2 blenders,Vitamix or Optimum.At the end of the day the
optimum G2.1 looked to be the superior machine so I purchased it!! Literally the best thing I have ever spent my money on!!
Froothie/Optimum VS Vitamix
I personally looked at getting the nutribullet, ninja and Vitamix. Buying from an Australian owned and operated company with a 10 year warranty definitely helped me make the right decision.
I was looking at getting a Vitamix to start my journey to
good health. After doing some research I stumbled upon Froothie
and the Optimum G2.1. Saw the videos and specifications and decided I would bite the bullet and buy one. It is a fantastic machine!
Love this product
Decided to pick this product after much research including Vitamix and the much cheaper Omniblend v which some claim is the same machine. So glad went with this product, a friend bought the cheaper alternative and it is not nearly as good as mine.
Optimum user review
I have now used the blender for all the recipes I made with
Vitamix. I am pleasantly surprised and unequivocally convinced
the Optimum G2.1 has the same result and build quality as the Vitamix. The longer blades were also very effective for grinding, and with the additional speed the job was done quicker than my Vitamix in some cases (note I never purchased the Vitamix dry jug which could have a similar result when grinding to the Optimum). Smoothies both had the same great texture, everything blended in seconds.
I had always wanted to buy a Vitamix but am so glad I found the Optimum instead. It is more powerful (my friend has one for me to compare), also easy to use and clean.
RIP the old blenders
Excellent value for the price (for something that, in my opinion, beats the Vitamix in every way), and it does the job.
My family loves the Optimum G2.1
I am so pleased with our Optimum G2.1. I researched for 2 years before choosing the Optimum over the American made Vitamix. There's no comparison between the two blenders. The quality surpasses all blenders of its kind.
The Optimum 9499
I am thrilled with my Optimum G2.1, it is fast efficient and makes the world’s best smoothies. In my opinion this is the absolute best quality machine for the money, I think it is a much superior blender than the Kitchen Aid, Vitamix, Magimix and the Breville models in the same or higher price category.
Centrepiece of My Kitchen!
Sturdy, great on-par (if not better) alternative to Vitamix
Optimum G2.1 - the Life Saver
Decided to look for Vitamix and came across this. After
comparing and reviewing, found the Optimum G2.1 is in par of not a little better so decided to give it a shot. Chat to them online, manage to get a small freebie and received the goods promptly. They seem to be really efficient in their customer service.Tried it and boy it works.
Best Ever Blender
I came across the froothie website and saw that it looked the same and can do all the same things, and that is has even has more impressive specifications than a Vitamix. This is a quality product that is designed to last as it actually allows you to select a 10 year warranty on it (I chose a 5yr warranty). I really love this machine and it is just so easy to clean and maintain - you just basically rinse it out and there are no hidden areas that trap food - so simple. Everything that is said about it is true.
All my questions answered!!
This blender is exactly what I was after and for an amazingly affordable price- the fabulous staff on the live chat at Froothie answered all my questions on the spot and helped me choose the best option for my home use. Relief after many hours of searching the internet and trying to compare to other brands like Vitamix to no avail. I use it every day!
Use it every day
I have been holding out for a Vitamix but a friend told me
to buy this one. When i received my G2.1 I made my daily green smoothy as was really happy. Tasted delicious and blended smooth. I am trying to go more raw vegan so I make dips, sauces, and lots of banana ice cream. ( frozen bananas only - so yummy )
Optimum blender is the shizz!
I needed a blender as my kenwood was not blending the kale up finely enough for the green smoothies I like to make so I did a lot of research looking at Vitamix, ninja etc etc. I finally ended up settling on this one due to the manufacture and also the price.)
What a great product!
I spent a while searching and comparing different products
on the market, even considering the Vitamix and the Blentech
(Both reputable brands). I luckily stumbled across a few
Youtube clips and forums showcasing an Australian blender range
by Froothie… Thank you Froothie, the product is simply
awesome. The exceptional design, quality and power of the
Optimum G2.1 at an affordable price makes it hard to beat. I
can quite confidently say the blender is on par if not better
than the leading blenders on the market. If anyone is looking for a great quality Australian owned blender with excellent customer service then I highly recommend the Optimum G2.1 by Froothie.
Best money I ever spent!!!
I researched the Vitamix and the Ninja Kitchen System, but
then came across the Optimum G2.1 and was super impressed, it also seemed to have the best reviews so I purchased one from Froothie while it was on sale for nearly half price
If you want a blender that rivals Vitamix but at a fraction of the cost....this is your answer!! Get on to it peoples, you won't regret it!!
Don't consider ANYTHING else
I am a hard working professional and was tossing up between a Vitamix and one of these. It wasn't until I compared the specifications I realised that I was getting MORE for LESS. This machine works harder, is equally durable, and is quieter that your $1,000AUD + Vitamix machines.
It does everything a Vitamix can do, and more. It has become one of the most used appliances in our house, along with the kettle and the toaster!
Like many others I'd had my eye on a Vitamix for a long time but couldn't justify the expense. The Optimum fit my budget and is a great product, I couldn't be happier.
Wow that's a good blenders
The blender is about 1/2 the price of the leading brand (Vitamix) that many of my friends own and as far as I can tell is quieter and a better blender.. So less money, Australian owned and a better blender..
Amazing blender and service from Froothie
So I thought a Vitamix was my only option if I wanted a machine to last more than a year or two at the most. I am just over the moon with my Optimum - not only can it blend anything that the other high powered blenders can, it does it at a realistic price, has a 10 year warranty, and the service that I received from Brian was right up there with the best I have ever received as a customer
As I mentioned to the Froothie team I was sceptical and ready to be biased against the Optimum, I have wanted a Vitamix for years but put off by the price.All I can say is I am delightfully and totally sold. This machine does everything it states and then some - silky smooth green smoothies, Amazing nut cheeses and raw desserts, easy nut milks, yummy nut butters
We purchased an Optimum G2.1 about 2 months ago and used it daily since. I would have preferred a Vitamix, but at double the cost it is not good value for money.
