Frequently Asked Questions
What are the functions of the Optimum?DOMESTIC USE:With a multi-purpose blade assembly and a speed reaching a staggering 48,000 rpm, the Optimum© Blender is able to carry out a number of food preparation functions such as blending, dicing, pureeing, chopping, mixing, grinding, heating, freezing and whipping different kinds of foods. The Optimum can blend anything from fruits and vegetables, coffee beans, ice, different spices as well as meats, so whether you are looking to make a nice hot soup, a big bowl of ice cream, a nice green smoothie or an entire meal, the Optimum is right for you. The powerful engine and high speed blades can handle frozen and hot food as well as room temperature goodies. The Optimum is definitely a single kitchen appliance that is characterized by excellence and distinction.
Ordinary household blenders fail to have the power built into every Optimum, to always carry out the variety of kitchen tasks. When buying a blender, there are three components you will need to look out for: The power of the motor, the speed of the blades and the noise level. The Optimum motor has a tremendous motor which can reach up to 2,611 Watts. The blades can spin at a speed of up to 48,000 rpm, and the noise level is a minimal 80-90 decibels.
What happens if the blender does not meet our expectations?The company is currently offering customers a trial period, with the option to return the blender within 30 days from the date of receipt of the blender for a full refund, including postage costs (we will organise the return). This allows you to try the blender in your own kitchen before deciding whether to keep it. This demonstrates our confidence in the blender's quality and performance. Another incentive currently offered by Froothie is the considerable discount of more than 40%. This reduction in price is aimed at building the brand's reputation in Australia and abroad, gaining recognition and becoming a major competitor in a monopolised industry.
Why is the Optimum more expensive than regular household blenders?The Optimum holds a commercial-grade status as a heavy-duty professional blender. At a price range of $431 - $641, it might be more costly than most domestic blenders, yet it is a high quality device with which will last you a lifetime(10-year domestic warranty), establishing itself as your Number 1 companion in your kitchen. After all, it has been said, "save money but don't sacrifice quality". The Optimum surely translates this concept.
How does the Optimum compete with regular food processors?The Optimum has been designed over many years to ensure it is capable of performing more blending functions than you regular food processor, with the goal of having all your expectations exceeded. The 6-blade assembly can rotate at a staggering speed to ensure the Optimum accomplishes food preparation tasks with no less effectiveness, while still proving easier to clean and operate.
The option of chopping food is also available when using the Optimum by pulsing food gradually without over-blending.
How does Hot/Cold food preparation mechanism work in the Optimum?The Optimum is a unique appliance capable of freezing ice cream or heating a soup. For hot food processing, the Optimum has the option of blending food at a HIGH speed, spinning the six stainless steel blades at 44,000-48,000 rpm to produce friction heat. In a few minutes, the soup or other food will be served steaming hot. As for the frozen ingredients, thanks to those same speedy blades the frozen food is crushed at an incredible speed, leaving no time for any melting while allowing the mixture to refreeze.
Please note the Optimum's commercial blending functions of 20, 35 and 45 seconds allow it to make drinks including smoothies and juices without warming the contents. This function, only available in commercial blenders, allows the Optimum to operate at various speeds, automatically slowing and speeding to ensure no friction heat occurs.
What are the cleaning instructions which we should follow for the Optimum?The Optimum is a very easy-to-clean appliance. For juice bars making drinks and smoothies, a quick rinse with water is all that is required. When making more sophisticated meals such as soups or dips, turn the appliance on high speed for about 30 to 60 seconds while the container is filled with warm water and dish washing detergent, then rinse and dry.
As for the rest of the surfaces, a simple wipe with a wet cloth is all that is necessary. Kindly note that the Optimum is not dishwasher safe, and please avoid any abrasive cleaners or pads.

Does the Optimum break the cell walls to release the enzymes?Yes, the Optimum breaks the cell walls of raw foods to make the enzymes more bioavailable. Without the need to break down large molecules of food, the intestines have less work to do. More energy can be concentrated to other organs that may be sick or toxic. Valuable nutrients locked inside the pulp, peels and seeds of fruits and vegetables cannot be absorbed as easily when these foods are simply chewed. The Optimum breaks those foods into microscopic particles to release their nutritional benefits as well as their delicious flavours.
