Please note we do not sell Blendtec Products

"Speed (RPM) comparisons: Due to the unavailability of a benchmark assessment of a blender's RPM, Froothie no longer advertises the speed of the blenders and instead focuses on the power and quality of the products including materials, build quality and motor construction."

Both the Blendtec Professional Series 750 and the Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender are premium quality blenders with excellent reputations in the industry. Both can make a wide range of fresh, delicious foods from hot soups to green smoothies to ice-cream to nut butters.

The advantages of the Optimum Vortex Blender, however, lie in its:

  • Simpler functionality: The Optimum Vortex Blender offers several one-touch buttons for pre-programmed speed and power functions + six automatic, one-push automatic programmes
  • Faster blending: The Optimum Vortex Blender operates at a faster motor speed, blending more quickly and reducing food oxidation.
  • Multipurpose jug: The Optimum Vortex Blender allows you to combine wet and dry ingredients together – no need for separate jugs.
  • One-month, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee: If you’re not happy with your Optimum Vortex Blender for any reason, simply send it back to us within 30 days of purchase.

In the end, whether you decide on a Blendtec or a Optimum Vortex Blender, you’ll have a high-quality appliance that should give you many years of use. Ultimately of course, it’s your decision, but if you’d like any further information or advice, please call us on 1300 309 900 or contact us online.

"My new #optimumblender from @froothie arrived and she’s an absolute blending legend!! It blended up my coconut milk to perfection. It’s the most creamiest nut milk I’ve made thus far. I’ve killed a few blenders in my time because I was trying to make them do what they were not designed for. I spend so much time in the kitchen that I needed to invest in a powerful and high quality tool and we finally met!"

"A good mixer is an indispensable kitchen tool for me . Most of them probably don't even use it for all that it can do. It even surpasses my beloved Vitamix in its performance 🤭⁣"

"The blender bowl is made of very resistant plastic without BPA, and even allows you to mix ice cubes without problem. The blades are stainless steel, and their shape allows you to mix both dry and wet ingredients. Coupled with blender speed, they reduce everything to crumbs! I find this robot even more practical than the old one, because it is equipped with several automatic programs that allow to combine an adapted speed and a duration for an optimal result, whether it is for the preparation of fruit or vegetable smoothies, grinding dried fruits, make soup, sauces or sorbets."

"The best blender! I think in a period of 20 years I have had at least 5 different blenders yes yes !! And each time, something was missing, if it was not the final texture, it was the washing, or the reliability of the machine ... in short, never very happy. And here they tell me about this famous Optimum! I take it out of its box, I read the instructions to avoid making a wrong start-up. Neither one nor two, I put on my apron and prepare a soup, VERDICT smooth as you wish and my daughter was asking for more. The crucial step: peanut butter, not very convinced of the latest blenders, often overheated, here no need to worry, this little gem does its job wonderfully and without overheating. My smoothie and cream tests have delicious results every time. I recommend it to my friends because for the price, it will play the role of a great kitchen assistant in your home!"

"Great product The Froothie Optimum G2.6 blender completely won me over: incredible efficiency whether for quick soups, smoothies, oilseed purees ... and even crushed ice. Its look is perfect for my kitchen and I also like how easy it is to use."

Sleek, sophisticated and so very practical, the Optimum G2.6 Platinum Series Vortex Blender is the most advanced blender within the Optimum range of appliances. It is our most powerful model to date, and the latest design in our range.

It's great to know that the high-quality stainless steel exterior of your Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender will fit in seamlessly with your overall kitchen décor.

However, appearance is not all.

Commercial Grade Powerful Motor

Used by hundreds of Cafés, Bars and Restaurants worldwide! Pay Hundreds of dollars less than you would a Vitamix or Blendtec, with the same power and quality.

The Optimum G2.6 has a very powerful motor with maximum motor power of 2400W (3.25HP) making this incredible machine a very powerful blender in the market. It can basically blend anything and with it you can achieve delicious smoothies, nut butters, soups, ice cream, grind coffee, crush ice and so much more.

Stainless Steel 6-Blade System

Our blade system is unrivaled. We've developed the perfect blades through years of testing. It combines the highest quality materials with ingenious design elements that allow the end machine to outperform its competition.

Forged from a premium-quality form of stainless steel, the custom-alloy blades in your Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender can cut through the hardiest of ingredients. And while most domestic blenders offer two (or occasionally four) blades, your Optimum Vortex Blender contains six: enough to blend thick foods like nut butters into a smooth, silky consistency.

Two of the blades are also precisely angled to prevent dense foods from jamming and creating a vacuum in the blending jug.They're longer too than the original the Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender, which means they can handle more difficult domestic functions, e.g. chipping or grinding thick foods. And the multi-faceted edge on each blade allows you to effortlessly combine wet and dry ingredients in a single blending mix – saving you time and energy.


The G2.6 has the highest quality parts and motor from all our Optimum blender range, as well as any other domestic blender on the market today.

Of course, as with any Optimum appliance, safety is paramount. That's why the Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender doubles up on safety protections - with automatic overheating protection for the motor, and electrical overload protection for the machine itself

The overload protection fault switch ensures that the machine is protected against overload damage. In the unlikely event that the machine overheats, this feature allows you to keep blending without having to switch it off until the motor cools down.

This goes well beyond the overheat protection found in most commercial grade blenders; and is a key reason behind the product's 1 year domestic.

Most Horsepower & Watts In The Industry!

Our commercial grade motors are the most powerful in the industry. Just checkout our comparison charts

BPA Free, Tough Tritan Jug

BPA Free, and incredibly tough. We have even tried hitting these with a hammer, or running over them with a car! They barely scratch!

Vortex Blending

As the name suggests, our carefully designed jugs are made to create the perfect "vortex" for blending your ingredients. Vortex technology is unique to the best quality of blenders on the market such as Optimum and Vitamix, and will not be found in cheaper quality blenders such as NINJA or other blenders on the market designed for domestic use.

The Vortex is Created By:

  1. Expertly crafted shape of the blending jug.
  2. High quality and design of blades.
  3. The high speed of the blender (40,000 to 48,000 rpm) which is unique to high speed blenders.

Advantages of Vortex Blending

  1. Smoother end product
  2. Faster Blending
  3. Huge reduction in oxidation of ingredients

Discover more about the Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender below.


The Optimum Vortex Blender is the most versatile and durable appliance on the market. Made with the most robust parts and finest functions, the Optimum Vortex Blender is the essential kitchen appliance to make your life easier and healthier.

It can blend, chop, process, mix and heat foods. The stainless steel blades can cut through just about anything, from almonds to cheese. Make whipped cream, almond butter and even ice cream with the ultimate kitchen appliance that makes preparing foods easy.

The Optimum Vortex Blenders are the most fabulous and easy-to-use appliance for every day kitchen use.


Although it has recently become popular as a domestic blender, the Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender was originally designed for heavy duty commercial use. Juice bars and cafes around the country, including franchises such as Wendy's and Gloria Jeans, testify to its effectiveness in these settings.



Optimum® is an Australian-owned brand that manufactures premium quality blenders and other appliances for the world market. From start to finish, the products are crafted to comply with strict quality control measures; and every Optimum Vortex Blender is extensively tested before being sent to us at Froothie for sale to customers.

Optimum® also teams up with third-party parts manufacturers who each have decades-long reputations for quality; and who supply some of the world's most respected appliance brands. All manufacturers use state-of-the-art equipment, materials and design to create the premium quality motors, blade assemblies and other components within Optimum® appliances.

While cheaper copycat blenders exist, they don't meet the same quality standards as the Optimum® range. That means they're simply not designed for the heavy duty use an Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender can comfortably deal with.


Of course, your relationship with us doesn't end when you buy your Optimum G2.6 Vortex Blender. It might be simple to operate, but your Optimum Vortex Blender is a sophisticated piece of machinery.
