A while ago we were sent a fab Froothie Optimum 9400 blender. We've always had cheaper, much less powerful blenders. This blender is the best I have ever tried by far! It is really powerful and very easy to clean. It is also quieter than some of the cheaper models we've had in the past.
You can see how the Froothie compares to the Vitamix here. You can also check out how it compares to the Nutribullet here.
We have used the Froothie to make smoothies, soups, nut butters, dressings and sauces. It came into it's own when bubs started weaning as I could whip up super smooth purees very quickly. The Froothie is also fab at making a quick and healthy soup for my lunch, everything goes into the Froothie and gets whizzed for around on high speed until you have a piping hot soup. You can check out my 5 Minute Soup recipe here.
Speaking of recipes, you do get a fab recipe book supplied in the box and it gives a lovely range of recipes that will get you started with your blender Very handy if you're new to power blenders and are unsure what they are capable of. I’ve also used the Froothie Optimum 9400 to make fruit couli, caramel and chocolate sauces, passata and other savoury sauces such as a smooth hidden vegetable lentil Bolognese, Hollandaise and cheese sauce. A great tool to have in the kitchen when a quick dinner or lunch is needed.
