Optimum Thermocook Pro vs Thermomix

Rivals the Thermomix!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 26, 2016
After much deliberation I decided on the Thermocook Pro and could not be happier! My friends who have a Thermomix love their machine but they think it is still not really worth the $2000…I’ve had it now for nearly 3 months and could safely say it is one of my most used appliances. It whips smoothies and soups up in no time and steams food to perfection… I am very satisfied with the performance so far and considering this is the first version I am sure they will keep getting better and better!.

After extensive research on a thermo cooker I came across the Optimum Thermocook. With 30 days to trial I thought why not, I was so excited to get this machine, it not only looks great on my bench, but it has all the functions I need and it is a solid, strong unit that does everything!!

Someone I know bought an Optimum blender via Froothie, and managed to talk me into buying this . The Thermocook does exactly what it says on the box, no problems.Pastry in under 30 seconds? Effortless Risotto? The Thermocook does it all, and does it well.

  • 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,
    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!!!!!
    This machine is for home use and now I'm giving some serious thought to buying one for work as I spend so many hours there!!!!
    I would please like to tap into the discount voucher for next year!!! Thanks for offering that up, great Customer Service on your part!!!
    All the best for your business next year!!!!
    Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
    Kind regards
    Rob Jakovich (Aspendale, Victoria)
