Choosing the right blender: Optimum vs Vitamix vs BioChef

Dargan Vitality

We then did the taste test. Both BioChef and Vitamix were grainy and the taste mad itvery hard to sip. The Optimum 9400 was blended very well and mixed the flavourswell giving a smooth, easy to swallow drink. For us the winner by farwas the Optimum 9400. We were blown away by the Optimum 9400 for anoutstanding Green Smoothie. If you were to invest in this blender, I can assureyou, you will not regret it.

THE OPTIMUM 9400 BRINGS SEXY BACK

Elizabeths Kitchen Diary

I am in love with this machine! It’s got curves reminiscent of a 1950′s classic car. Its deep metallic red colour is so alluring that I want to get out the wax and start buffing it while Frank Sinatra croons in the background. The knobs and switches remind me of a vintage radio; as if at any moment it may break into song.

WHY I RECOMMEND THE OPTIMUM 9400 BLENDER FOR DOMESTIC USE!

THE RAW FOOD MUM

I have had a lot of questions regarding the different models of Optimum Blenders. As many of you know I am and have been a massive fan of the Optimum Blenders for some time. They have three models, the 9200 - 2nd Generation , 9400 and 9900, and I have had a review on the differences on The Raw Food Mum for some time, however the biggest question I am asked is “Which blender do I recommend”? and it is for this reason I wanted to write a new review on the 9400, and explain why it really is the perfect blender for domestic use.

Optimum 9400 Blender Review

Food For Thought

Blender Reviews: Hi for those that don't know me, I'm Samantha Baird owner of food for thought. I constantly get asked for my recommendations on which blender I choose so thought id put pen to paper and share my experiences.

Being a food coach I am consistently doing food preparation demos for work and home use. Let’s say my blenders get a good work out several times a day. This year I have seen myself through a few of these costly items, so here is my report:

One of my first blenders the Breville, it did the job some of the time. I found if I put basic banana and rice milk with a bit of honey it was fine, as soon as I added some greens or dates – things got lumpy :( If you’re a smoothie lover like me lumps are a no no. This blender failed when I added ice, one blitz and it died.

Philips 1000W Compact 3-in-1 Setup 3.4L Bowl Food Processor. A lower cost option, the food processor component of this machine is good. Although this blender can’t handle ice either and once again struggles to blend to a smooth consistency. It is unable to perform most of the tasks given to a high speed blender.

Optimum 9400 v.s. Vitamix

Choice Magazine

Side-by-side comparison We've put both blenders through their paces. Read our side-by-side comparison of their features, performance and ease of use, or go straight to our verdict. Features Vitamix The Vitamix is said to make healthy living easy and claims to replace 10 kitchen appliances. It can juice, cook, freeze, blend, chop, grind and also has a self-cleaning system. It has a heavy-duty, commercial-quality 1200W motor, two-litre jug capacity, variable speed control and weighs almost 5kg. It has a tamper tool that allows you to push food into the blades without jamming the tool and damaging the unit. With this tool you can stir the ingredients without stopping the unit.

Optimum 9400 Blender vs Ninja Blender Comparison (Videos)

Hey Dude!

Have you been wondering what sort of Blender to get?

Should I get a Ninja?

Should I get a Nutribullet?

Should I get a Blendtec?

Should I get a Vitamix?

Should I get an Optimum?

It's been 5 years since I started blending and let's just say I have used my fair share of blenders.

I did a mini video series with Zane from Realistically Raw You on the FroothieTV channel where we compared the Optimum Blender to the Ninja, Nutribullet and Vitamix Blenders.

After trying and comparing the Optimum head to head with other blenders, I've come to some interesting conclusions.

Every Time... the Optimum 9400 has come out on top. Even against the Vitamix. And I'm being totally honest here too!

In this weeks video series we compare the Optimum 9400 to the Ninja Blender you see on the TV commercials.

Is the Ninja Blender really what they say it is? Watch the videos below to find out.

OPTIMUM 9400 HAPPILY STANDS UP AGAINST BLENTEC & VITAMIX

AMUSE YOUR BOUCHE

Let me tell you a bit about the blender. It happily stands up against its main competition – Blendtec and Vitamix – and in fact outperforms them in many categories. For example, it can spin faster than both, and has more blades – which means it takes no time at all to get a perfectly smooth result. It took just seconds to get my banana smoothie nice and creamy! PLUS there’s even a 1-month money back guarantee, so you can just try it out for a month if you’re still not entirely convinced!

HEALTHIER WITH MY OPTIMUM 9400

MAPLE SPICE (WINNER OF THE VEGAN WOMAN 2014 AWARD)

I LOVE it - I cannot tell you how much healthier we have all eaten since receiving this machine. As much as I like fruit I simply wasn't much of a fruit eater. Now we are flying through fruit and I feel a lot better for it as well. What I really love is that I can just peel an orange and throw it in, before I would have to use just orange juice in my smoothies now I get all the benefits of the WHOLE fruit. Oh, and you don't even have to core a pineapple... I certainly will never be buying fruit juices ever again :-)

FACELESS FOOD – OPTIMUM 9400 REVEW

KEEP COSTS DOWN

One reason that I jumped at the chance to try out the Optimum 9400 blender, is that my daughters both love smoothies. My existing blender can only make 'lumpies' so I generally spend around £5 per week on ready-made cartons of fruit smoothies. I'd love them to drink more smoothies, as I think it's a great way to get 1 or 2 extra portions of fruit (or veg!) into their diets. The great thing about homemade smoothies, is that you can use seasonal ingredients to keep costs down and you can omit any ingredients you don't like.

Whilst certainly not cheap at a RRP of £329, the Optimum 9400 is an excellent piece of kit for health-conscious vegetarians, vegans and raw food enthusiasts. In a domestic kitchen, it can be used to make smoothies, hot and cold soups, slushies, sorbets, dairy-free nut and seed milks/butters plus much more. In fact it has around 15 functions - do check it out on this YouTube clip to see it in action!

I do have a blender from a well known designer brand, and often make spreads and dips such as Hummus but noted in comparison that it did not offer the same creamy smooth bit-free that I got from the Optimum 9400. The other thing I noted immediately is that majority of the blenders that I have used in my life would take a good 10-15 minutes in reaching the point of creamy smoothness, as well as a lot of stopping and scraping down of the blitzed vegetables from the sides. The time was massively reduced with the Optimum 9400 blender.See full review

Consider a high-powered bender as an investment in your health!... Other Things I like about it are the jug is BPA-free, it's easy to clean, comes with a tamper (perfect for blending ultra-thick purees), it even has little cable clips which means it's neat and tidy on the countertop. I use my blender every single day! You CAN probably get along just fine with a basic blender for most things but it may not blend vegetables like kale or fruit like dates as smoothly as you'd like. A high-powered blender also opens up a lot of fun possibilities so you can't help but eat healthily!See full review

The Pulse function is a good way to keep control over what you are processing and to not 'over process'. For example, if you popped some peanuts into the jug and wanted them rough ground for a Thai style salad dressing, due to the power of the blades within no time you'd have peanut butter! Instead, whizz the peanuts in bursts using the pulse and you have complete control over the texture of the nuts. Overall verdict, rather impressed with my Froothie...See full review

The reason power blenders such as Vitamix and Froothie's Optimum 9400 are great for making custard is that you can throw all the ingredients in to the blender jug, switch on and gradually ramp up the speed to its highest setting. Simply leave the blender running for several minutes; the speed of the powerful blades generates enough heat to cook the custard. Believe me, after 7 minutes, our custard was steaming hot! And because we had confidence in the power of the blades, we dropped the solid pieces of white chocolate straight into the hot custard and blended again. The Optimum 9400 blades broke the chocolate down quickly and the heat melted and combined it thoroughly into the custard base.See full review

Being a fairly methodical person I really wanted to make sure that I had run it through its paces before I passed on my assessment. And I wanted to do a couple of side by side challenges against my Vitamix to see how my two machines compared. For my head-to-head challenges I made today's smoothie, a double batch of beetroot and cashew hummus, some frozen yogurt and sunflower seed butter. Both machines performed very well - as would be expected of high level machines. But there are a few points that may tip the balance in the Froothie's favour: 1. cost 2. quietness 3. ease of blending 4. blending timeSee full review

In the meantime I've also received a Froothie Optimum 9400 machine. Preparing Curd in the old-fashioned way is a pain. Suddenly life became much easier with the Froothie. It's a matter of peeling the kiwis, separating the eggs and measure out the ingredients and placing everything in the jug. You'll end up with the maximum setting of 10. This is when you leave the machine alone to work it's magic for a full 5 minutes and stare in wonderment how you lived without one for all these years. What I found particularly fascinating is how the contents start to heat up after a few minutes, thus cooking the eggs.See full review

As many of you know, I've been a devoted user of the Vitamix for years, so when the opportunity came along to try out the Froothie Optimum 9400 Blender I felt a little bit like I was cheating on an old and very dear friend. But I decided to have an open mind and see what this new kid on the block could do. A few weeks ago I stashed away my Vitamix and replaced it with the Froothie to see how it worked for my daily blending needs. Daily? That's right. I'm a pretty heavy blender user - I make smoothies for breakfast every day and often (at least once per week) use the blender for other tasks such as pureed soup, custard for ice cream, almond milk and cashew gravy. So far it's been a stellar performer and performed at least as well as the vitamix. If it excels in one area I'd say it's noise: the Froothie is noticeably quieter than my Vitamix. I also like the clear jug.See full review

Froothie have come up with a powerful mean machine called Optimum 9400 which will blast any ingredient and blitz it to a delicious purée in moments, furthermore it crushes ice like it cutting through butter, it chops, grates, grinds and whips and you can use it with wet or dry ingredients in it without buying a separate jug. It also makes instant ice creams for the summer and warm soups for the winter so you can make use of it the whole year around.See full review

At first glance this sturdy blender with its 2 litre capacity is similar in appearance to the Vitamix, but in fact the engine is more powerful and slightly quieter (a big bonus!). For us though, the best thing is the blade – the Froothie blender has a 6 blade assembly, 4 facing up and 2 down. Why is this good? because when you are only blending small quantities, you get more a more efficient chopping of the ingredients than blenders with only upward facing blades (Vitamix included).See full review

The Optimum 9400, which is available at a special introductory price, also has a 10 year extended warranty so you can be rest assured you will be using it for years to come. The cost is really good value when you consider cheaper models won't do a fraction of the things a 9400 will and it is considerably less expensive than other high-end blenders which can retail up to £600.See full review

My second secret bug-fighting weapon has been my Froothie Optimum 9400 – a power blender that I’ve been trying out recently to make blended soups, smoothies and homemade raw dips and nut butters……..I’ve also found that since the Froothie Optimum 9400 can handle raw ingredients, including vegetables, nuts, seeds and all kinds of fruit, you are literally only ever a few minutes away from a cup of something tasty and nutritious in the form of a soup or smoothie. My little girl has discovered a love of soy milk (which she calls soil milk!) so I’ve also been making lots of milkshakes and smoothies with frozen bananas and a pinch of cinnamon or cocoa…… So, I’m very happy with my Optimum 9400 and there are still many more recipes to try See full review

Let’s start with my review: * The Optimum 9400 has six blades instead of the regular 4 that you can find in most super powerful blenders and that makes everything you blende smoother and creamier. * You can do toppings and filing for cakes, nut butter, nut milk, green juices, smoothies, cheesecake and even bread. I’ve once done a soup in less than 10 minutes and it was super hot. I know how crazy is that. * The powerful motor has 3 high speeds which allows you to do ice cream and soups. * The jug is Heat-Resistant BPA free with 2l capacity. * The blender also has a Built-in sensor to detect over-usage; prolonging life of blenderSee full review

Optimum 9200 - 2nd Generation Blender Review

Om Nom Ally

Let me start this review by saying the Optimum 9200 - 2nd Generation is the best blender I have ever owned… and I’ve been through a few of them.

The most memorable blender-blunder was a Breville model I broke with a errant medjool date pit. There was a horrid ‘crunch’ and then ‘pop’ sound and from that point on I had to hold the blender on the base at the right angle or it wouldn’t blend. That was fun. I also had a magic bullet-style blender that was too small, with useless blade systems and a motor that always overloaded right in the middle of making a green smoothie.

When I made a raw chocolate and goji berry smoothie, it was impossible to detect even a tiny bit of goji berry. Our kale blended to a fine green juice and a couple of other ingredients I wasn’t sure about had similarly successful results. I will be posting some of the things I’ve made in due course…See full review

Anyway, I am pleased to announce that with the Optimum 9200 , pesto-related catastrophes and grainy-tasting smoothies are a thing of the past! …….So far in my optimum 9200 I have made Smoothies (my favourite of which is pineapple & passionfruit, which I will share below!), Humus, Hot soup (from raw ingredients), plus, it can also make other dips and spreads (including nut-butters), desserts and dressings. And it can grind grains to make flour. But this blender can do both dry and wet ingredients in the same container, rather than you having to faff about with separate ones….See full review

I'm Meghan and I'm a smoothie-loving vegan foodie with a passion for creating delicious and nutritious plant-based recipes. When I'm not experimenting in the kitchen I enjoy practising yoga and pilates, upcycling vintage furniture and posting pictures of my breakfast on my Instagram account (@naturallymeghan)!

The Optimum 9200A Next Gen is a high-speed blender which creates delicious fruit smoothies with ease, but it doesn't stop there; I've made green smoothies and banana ice cream in it, and this blender has managed it all perfectly. My previous blender didn't cope with frozen ingredients and tougher greens very well, so I'd usually end up with annoying lumps of frozen fruit or unpleasant bits of kale in my smoothies; the Optimum 9200A, however, has no difficulty with those things at all so I end up with ultra smooth drinks every time. That's not all it does though - it also has the ability to grind nuts and grains for flour, crush ice and make nut butters, hot soups, spreads and dips! Before discovering this blender I'd been toying with the idea of buying a Vitamix for a few months (well, a year actually!) but the Optimum 9200 actually rivals the Vitamix Pro 500 in terms of performance…See full review

One of the reasons I love my blender so much is because it’s so simple to clean. I have very little energy, and while I do think making sure I eat well is important, if I don’t have the energy to make something and then clean up, I’m just not going to do it. Here, all I need to do is throw my ingredients into the large 2l jug, blend, pour and enjoy. To clean, all I do is fill halfway with warm water, add a squirt of Ecover washing up liquid and blend on high for about a minute and then rinse. I’d highly recommend the Froothie Optimum 9200A blender for anyone who’s looking to get some serious blending action going on in the kitchen – it’s such a versatile piece of equipment and performs so many functions, that it is definitely invaluable to me…See full review

I switched to using a high performance blender about five years ago, and while it can seem expensive to lay out so much dosh I believe it’s a worthwhile investment if you use a blender frequently, if you want to make day to day kitchen tasks easier (the smoothest hummus you’ll ever eat, easy veggie chopping, fast smoothies), and if you’re keen on making better tasting variations of products you would otherwise buy (nut butters and non dairy milks are a cinch). The bar was high for me since it’s not my first time owning a high performance blender, but my first impressions of the Optimum 9200A are great. It does everything my other blender does and it’s so quiet. Gone are the days of questioning if it’s appropriate to make a smoothie or soup at 2am (I live in a block of flats) when I wake up starving and don’t want to wait until real people hours to eat….See full review

……So, what is a Froothie? Well, it’s a pretty neat and awesome bit of kit! I was sent a Froothie OPTIMUM 9200A NEXT GENERATION blender (RRP: $791), although if you buy one now, you can save a WHOPPING $312 and secure one of these amazing machines for only $479! The list of what you can do and make in one of these blenders is astounding…….. So far, I have made a curd and this sauce in my Froothie, and both have turned out well – with the curd being an absolute winner, as the machine cooks the eggs as it blends – that recipe will be on Lavender and Lovage in a few days. But back to today’s recipe – as you can see from the photo collage above, I simply chucked all the ingredients in the large 2 litre Froothie jug, blended the sauce for UNDER a minute and voilà, I was rewarded with a spicy, creamy and delicious enchilada sauce for all my Mexican cooking…See full review

My new Froothie 9200 is the sixth blender I have owned in less than 2 years. I’m not kidding……...This thing is a game changer. I use it so much each day and even plan my meals around what I can use the blender for! It is not just a smoothie machine – this incredibly durable and powerful machine can do so much. I use it to chop vegetables, make nut milks and creams, make date paste, grind flours, mix cake batter, even to knead bread dough and of course the most deliciously creamy smoothies in seconds. And no gradual placing ingredients, just dump it all in, press one of the really simple to use pre-programmed speed buttons (20, 35 & 45 seconds) or speed settings (high, medium, low & pulse) and voila, creamy smoothie ready to pour whilst you do other things. It’s truly a pleasure. There is no need to pre-soak nuts or seeds for blending and the specially designed blade means everything will be blended and nut butters can be whipped up in the same jar without need for a special attachment. The speed creates so much friction heat that you can actually cook ingredients in it without a special heating element! How cool is that? Simply add fresh ingredients like ripe tomatoes and seasonings and blend for a few minutes to have hot tomato soup ready! And as a bonus, it even cleans itself! Simply add hot water and a drop of dish soap and use on the 20 second function then rinse!See full review.

Unlike the other Froothie blenders the G2.1 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!.... See full review

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 here) and it’s resulted in the smoothest soup I’ve ever tasted……See full review
