So, what’s special about the Optimum G2.3 Platinum Series Induction Blender and why would you want one? I already have the fabulous Optimum G2.1 blender so I was sceptical when I was asked to try this one on for size, but there are five particular features which really stand out.
- The brushless induction motor is much quieter than any high power blender I have used. I can carry on a conversation while the Optimum G2.3 is doing its thing, I can’t with the G2.1 or with any of the brands I’ve used when working in commercial kitchens. It’s not silent, by any means, but it is at a reasonable level for a family kitchen!
- The extra 1 litre rotating jug in addition to the standard 2 litre jug is just what I have always wanted in a blender! The 2 litre jug with its 6 blade assembly is perfect for large quantities of soup, for smoothies and for making nut milk but I very often want to blend smaller quantities. The 1 litre rotating jug is fabulous when I’m making hummus and cashew cream. The rotating blades (you rotate them yourself by twisting the top while the spinning blades in the bottom chop everything up) scrape everything down from the sides of the jug and really help when I’m making thick blends. No more teeth grinding for me when I have to keep stopping to push badly behaved chickpeas down into the blender! Both jugs are BPA free.
- The specially designed spatula – a spatula which has been specifically designed for the shape of a blender and to get under those blades! No chickpea can hide from me now!
- The LED touch screen control panel is elegant and simple. It features 5 pre programmed settings and allows me to go off piste with some fine tuned manual functionality too! The pre programmed settings are for Smoothies, Sorbets, Vegetables and Fruit, Soups and Grind for nuts, grains and seeds. The soup setting runs for 8 minutes at the end of which you will have a hot steaming soup to serve – I still find this a bit miraculous! I like that there are no buttons or switches on the control panel, it makes it a breeze to clean.
The Optimum G2.3 Platinum Series Induction Blender also comes with a heavy duty tamper tool for the 2 litre jug to push things down with, a nut milk bag, user’s manual and a recipe booklet. It has a 30 day money back guarantee including return postage and as a Froothie owner you have access to an expert support team 24/7 helping you to get the most from your blender. The Optimum G2.3 Platinum Series Induction Blender comes in four colours and with a Lifetime Motor Warranty and a 5 Year Warranty on Parts for domestic use – which is quite something, isn’t it?!
